We live 2 blocks from 62 Bistro and it is our favorite spot for an intimate dinner for 2. The food is consistently good and the portions are not overwhelming. The decor reminds me of a small, intimate cafe and is not pretentious at all. It's also fairly quiet.

For lunch or dinner, ti is like a trip to France and very reasonable for the quality and selection of all the dishes. From the fish (and wonderfully prepared) to the duck and everything else, you can't beat it at any price and the price is very moderate. The owners are French and it shows. Small, quiet and delightful. One... More

The onion soup was delicious. We also had the Brie salad...yum. A bottle of wine, four different entrees, four different desserts. All large portions. We are planning on going back soon. Great service.

We spent a pleasant evening in this bistro which reminds one in its cuisine and decor of family-run restaurants in provincial French towns. I had smoked salmon salad, sole in lobster sauce, and crepe Suzette for $32, plus two glasses of French wine for $10, which was reasonable for the quality received. This was a promotion of the summer-season Savour... More

We dined at 62 Bistro last Saturday night. We were transformed to France with the quaint pillows in our chairs to the over the top excellent food. My husband and I are foodies and know and appreciate great food. This place has it. We love this place. We dined on the Savour Sarasota menu which highlighted many of the great... More

To start I have been in France a total of a year at various times. I have eaten at all sorts of places in France ranging from real 4 star restautants to the corner tabacs. We went with a bunch of friends to 62 Bistro. It was very clean and the hostess was very congenial. However, the food was only... More

I took my friend here for her birthday lunch. It was while Savor Sarasota menu was available. We both had the quiche, which was delicious. I was so looking forward to having French onion soup, as I have vivid recollections of the soup I had in Paris a year ago. While the soup was good, it did not have the... More

It looks right — a narrow rectangular room, calm French wallpaper, well-space tables. The menu is limited, as you would expect from a small kitchen; but the dishes are basic, gut-warming, and unpretentious — beouf bourgignon, duck breast, fillet of flounder in lobster sauce, chicken breast (alas, not thighs!) in a creamy sauce Normande. Two aooetizers to keep me there... More
