Absolutely loved my Mothers’ Day dinner here! Not a huge place but the food was fantastic and wait staff were attentive. We had the artichoke tartlet, pea shoot salad, hangar steak, and Icelandic cod, and for dessert the pound cake. Can’t wait to come back!

We kept driving by Bistro Barbes because it is so small and the entrance blends in to a larger building. But, we made it. Really quite a special event. This bistro has a very limited menu, but everything we tried was exquisite. The plating is...More

We booked this intimate restaurant for our daughter’s 28th birthday. The menu is small but has enough variety. All of the ingredients are at the height of freshness. We started with a zucchini gazpacho with creme fraiche amuse bouche and it was lovely. Then, we...More

I’m lucky to have this little gem in walking distance from my house. I was so disappointed when it made top 25 of denver a few years ago as I figured I’d never find a spot in this tiny restaurant. I’m not a big fish...More

Bistro Barbes is a very small intimate dining experience with excellent food and service. It is hidden in a residential neighborhood, but worth the search. Small changing menu of wonderful freshly prepared food. I had an appetizer, salad and entree. Everything was great, including tasting...More

We visited Bistro Barbes for the first time last night. What a wonderful find. I left a voice mail for a same day reservation and got a return call within a few hours. That was the first experience of great service that extended through the...More

Ambiance leaves a lot to be desired from the get go. Bass beat of the music was annoying! Service was efficient but not personal and friendly. And finally the food was good but given the other points - can't recommend and won't be back. Hard...More
