We just moved to the area from NYC where we had quite a bit of great French food (our favorite cuisine). Moved down to Florida and have been looking for our staple French spot - and we have found it at Escargot Bistro! This is...by far the best FOOD (not just French) that we have had since moving down. The cozy vibe, complimented by Didier and Andrea’s hospitality transports you right to France in a little cafe. Couldn’t recommend it more highly, and so glad we live close so we will be regulars! Must go!More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit today. It came highly recommended by my daughter and her fiancé who have been multiple times for dinner. My mother my daughter and I celebrated my mothers birthday together today. Everything was so delicious! I’m sorry I didn’t take pictures....I just wanted to enjoy being in the moment with my family. Highly recommend this restaurant. Gracious husband and wife, couldn’t be more accommodating. I can’t wait to go back for dinner. Run don’t walk…More

The atmosphere charming and cozy. Just like a true French bistro...because it is. The owners are front & center & treat everyone as though you are joining them for a delicious, home-cooked, meal, but actually gourmet in quality. Our group enjoyed starters of escargot, salad,...and pate. One just as delicious as the next. The homemade dressings for the salad were equally as delicious, one after the next. The various methods of escargot enabled each to choose their own favorite. Our entrees ranged from Coq au vin to sole in a Morrocan curry sauce, to escargot en crepe. While escargot & crepes are always on the menu, the other meals were specials for the night. We could not choose which was our favorite. Dessert included creme Brule and crepe Suzette. Again, impeccable samples of sweet treats. From the wine, to the baguette, to the starters, entrees, and dessert, all were only outshined by the truely charming character of our hosts. Going requires a little planning as reservations are required due to the limited seating availability, but we'll worth the effort!! Highly recommended and will be revisited often!!!More

From the moment we entered this establishment we knew it was going to be a winner! We were greeted by the husband and wife(owners) at the door and asked"are you Bob"? I said yes and was then informed that the frogs legs specially ordered for...me were in the kitchen. WOW!!!! I had the escargot app with the puff pastry and mushrooms and my wife had the traditional escargot app. Both were fantastic. I, of course, had the frogs legs. A most generous sized portion and beyond delectable. My wife had the rib eye with escargot on top. She said it was phenomenal! Cannot wait to return. Quaint, clean, outstanding food and service.Kudos to Andrea and Didier Bob and MicheleMore

We had a wonderful dinner at this small husband and wife run restaurant. The food was authentic, made by the wife. Only about 10 tables which made it intimate and personal. I highly recommend it.
