Maybe I am biased from my experience as a student 30 years ago and not that Lafayette cannot be charming, but you kind of have to look for charm ... especially when it comes to dining. So my family and I were very pleasantly surprised to dine at Bistro 501 on a college visit over the weekend. It is French-inspired,... More
The Bistro has just the right hint of a French Bistro without any cheesy pretensions. The food was delicious and the menu had a lot of variety. We dined at lunch so we did not try out their wine selection which I hear is good. The service was attentive. It was a lovely way to visit with family over a... More
Came to see my nephew's artwork displayed and got the bonus of an excellent brunch (eggs Benedict with lobster highly recommended). Excellent service....relaxing and lovely.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are proud to display your nephews art work and so pleased that you enjoyed your brunch. We hope to see you again soon! More
My wife and I went here for the first time based on the good reviews on TripAdvisor. We were very impressed with this restaurant. Beautiful setting, terrific service, and most importantly, delicious food! We had the heirloom tomato caprese salad, steak tartare, peach pancetta salad, and scallops with pasta. All were fabulous. If I was going back tomorrow, I would... More
Wanted to find a place large enough to accommodate a party of 10. Somewhere close to downtown Lafayette, close to Perdue. We found the perfect restaurant at BISTRO 501. It had elegance and charm, plenty of space to accommodate our party. The table and chairs were spaced adequately allowing easy access to our seats. The staff was cheerful, polite and... More
Table for 10 in Lounge for our coaching staff and spouses. Met with Bistro manager a few days ahead and planned(and they executed beautifully) charcuterie plates on table as we seated, pomme frites delivered hot shortly after seating. Cocktails, a red and a white wine and we dug in. Bone marrow and escargot for fun then everyone ordered main dish,... More
Bistro 501 has changed hands fairly recently and I want to assure you that it is still one of the best dining options in Lafayette.The warm, casual atmosphere is retained, as is good service. Having said this, it is all about the food, and I was very pleased during my recent visit. The new summer menu was in place, and... More
Thank you very much for your great review. We have tried to maintain that balance of new and old Bistro 501, and it is wonderful news that our efforts are worthy. I hope that we get to see you again soon, and look forward to sharing the new Fall menu with you (coming soon!). More
After moving in our son into Pudue in the rain. We stopped in to have a light bite after a late lunch. We ate at the bar as we prefer. The bartender seemed offended that we were sharing a salad and each having a soup. The French Onion soup came out cold and the bartender was colder when we brought... More
I would like to first thank you for choosing Bistro 501 on your visit to Purdue. I know there are many restaurants in this area, and we appreciate that you gave the opportunity to us. Sadly, now I must express our sincerest apologies that we did not live up to our expectations and standards with both the cold soup and... More
