I love this little French/clean food resto. Hospitality by its owner is always great. Food is amazing, escargots....don't even have to mention...just fantastic. Pappardelle with "tartufo nero" (black truffle) freshly grated....OMG. Fresh halibut from west coast, really simple but really nice! To me, is a must when I travel or stop over in miami/ft Lauderdale area. Price range great. Wine... More

We read the reviews and were disappointed in what we found. We were excited to try the wonderful menu that was offered but was disappointed in what we got. We knew the location was in a strip mall, so we were prepared for the decor. When we ordered drinks, a certain beer was ordered and another was served and when... More

Went with some friends for a nice French dinner and was not disappointed. Kyle our server was excellent and had a great sense of humor. The food is all cooked from scratch (cooked to order not prepared ahead of time). My mushroom soup was outstanding with little touches that made the flavor jump out at you. I also had the... More

Just flew in from Chicago and was looking for a nice meal before delving into business. What a surprising find Le Bistro was! The server, Kyle, was very friendly and made some great recommendations. I was eventually introduced to the proprietors, Chef Andy and his wife Elin. They were incredibly welcoming, friendly and cordial. About the food ... I started... More

It's been awhile since I last ate at Le Bistro. I live about 30 minutes away and just haven't taken the time to go, what a mistake. Since my last visit the restaurant has been remodeled and the menu updated. The old favorites are still there, along with daily specials and some new regular dishes. The Foie Gras is the... More

Five of us visited Le Bistro for dinner. I’m sorry so much time passed since our previous visit. Wow, everything we had was just spectacular. Started with beet and feta salad, perfect balance of sweetness from the beets, acidity from the balsamic vinegar and saltiness from the feta cheese. This was likely the best beet salad I’ve had, and I... More

It was purely luck that I found LeBistro, when in Lighthouse Point I think of Jack Krutek who lived in the town. As luck would have it Susan and I were in my vintage 1997 BMW 528 on Federal Hwy and Susan asked where we were going to eat. I pulled in to Le Bistro with no reservation, and said... More

Just not what I was expecting. Being from out of town I tried to plan one special night out where we got dressed up etc. Not an easy task to get him to do but bribed him with this great menu. Trying not to break the bank; online they list a pre fixe menu #French 2016- oh but they don't... More

Mediocre. Primary objection is very heavy handed on salt. Chef needs to leave that seasoning to the table. Poor choice of wines.

We do offer salt free preparations and wish you had expressed your desire for such at the time. Our wine list is quite extensive, and you were graciously accommodated as we opened 4 bottles until you found a Lodi Red Zinfindel to your liking. We are very accommodating as it is our aim to make our customers happy. We accept... More

We were a party of three, it was my first time at this establishment, and it was fabulous! I do not eat meat, I do like fish, but not seafood. Was recommended to have the smoked and candied salmon for starter - oh my... what a delight. I didn't really have a main entree, but asked for a selection of... More
