It is an upscale restaurant without being stuffy. All our entrees were so delicious - rack of lamb, short ribs, duck breast, and rib eye steak. Great service - special thanks to James who mailed my credit card to California - so honest We will be back

Has to be the best food we ever eat when visiting Hawaii. Easy to get to when you hire a car and short 20 minute drive from Waikiki to Niu Valley. If you're not sure, make sure you hire a GPS in the hire car packaging. Made our life so much easier. Staff are amazing. 18 months since our last... More

Romantic restaurant, good for couples and friends. Onion soup is very good although on the salty side. Butter is served rock hard. Service is very good. Reservations suggested.

Four of us went there for dinner in late May. We were here a couple of years ago and it was outstanding. This time was not as great but still better than most restaurants in Honolulu. I loved the lobster appetizer. Fish dish was a bit too oily.

Celebrating my cousin's birthday while visiting Honolulu, he suggested this restaurant. What a great surprise. The front of the place is nothing to write home about, but wait until you get inside. I thought I was in a Paris bistro. The food was excellent, some of the best duck I've ever had. My husbands salmon was perfect and the deserts... More

Le Bistro is somewhat hard to find, located in the Niu Valley Shopping Center on Kalanianaole Hwy but it's worth the drive to East Honolulu. The white table cloth restaurant has been there for decades serving up mostly French fare. Huge servings. Great service. The French onion soup is outstanding. Salads were perfectly crafted. But the stars of menu are... More

Oysters on the half shell, Salmon, duck, beef and short ribs. All perfect. I'm not a dessert person, but my 3 companions all thought dessert was delicious.

This is a tiny little place in a strip mall in Niu Valley. Great food. We had braised duck, and a lobster/onaga (fish) special, as well as a pear and walnut salad and a salad with grilled oranges. Very, very good. They have a nice wine list as well. Service is excellent. The only reason I give them 4 stars... More

We have been coming here for years and this place never fails to impress. The food and service are just awesome. It's always busy so you need to book. Thinking about it I should not write thus review. Talk about shooting yoursef in the foot!!
