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

We went to 62 Bistrot as we wanted to try a small place with great food. It is small like french restaurants should be about 35 places. And the food was great if you like interesting sauces. The waitress was Rosemary who was very friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu. It was only Savor Sarasota menu but had duck for... More

A delightful, small bistro with easy parking in Sarasota. Although the menu is limited, it offers authentic French eating. After many travels to Europe, I was delighted to find true French-style cheese and pate plate, in-house made pate. The Boeuf Bourguignon was superb also. The service was great, helping us to select a delightful wine to suit our tastes.
