“Enjoyed the atmosphere and gluten-free”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

We have eaten here as it has changed hands through a number of owners. The atmosphere of the place has remained and it is a pleasant place for a night out. First time that we had been there with live entertainment. It was lovely and not overbearing - just right and in the background. Their gluten free options are well done including gluten free bread at the table. More typically the gluten free person at the table just has to live without any bread. The food was just average for an evening meal and would recommend eating off the lighter menu items such as pizza. Would go back just for the atmosphere. And the service was very good.

“Great little French Restaurant in Halifax”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Le Bistro was recommended to us by a few of our friends so we finally tried it out. They have great specials (free mimosa with your brunch order) and often have live music. They food was excellent and service was quick. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a casual dinner in the south end.

From the classical guitarist, to the wonderful bistro table, through the $5 wine -by-the-glass special, past the delightful waitress (Kat), and finally with the food, this was a delightful evening from beginning to end. Our table of four feasted on brie, salad, and soup to begin with ... moved on to beef stew, lamb shanks, and chicken stuffed with brie .... and ended with a perfect lemon-ice pie. We completely enjoyed our little of Paris, all whilst never leaving Halifax!

“Excellent food, excellent value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

First time back to this new version of Le Bistro and we were not disappointed. All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals, the mussels carbonara and escargots were amazing. Service was very good, the atmosphere nice, not too crowded, not too loud. My only potentially negative comment would be that the live entertainment (which was amazing), was a little loud, making it difficult to have a conversation at the table and we were not seated overly close to the staging area. We will definitely go back. Highly recommend for couples and friends, could be a challenge for children, as I did not see any fare on the menu that would appeal to most young kids.

“Great food, service, value!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

We stumbled upon this place looking for another.... how fortunate for us! It was our last night in Halifax and it was a great restaurant for that. The ambience was very nice... seemed like mostly locals dining there. It was a Sunday night and they offered a free salad, soup or appie with every entree ordered. They had specials for other nights. We had a wonderful thai coconut curry tomato soup followed by our entrees which were both excellent. Our server, Nancy I think, was great. She was so friendly and provided awesome service. This place was not listed anywhere that we had seen for tourists but we would definitely recommend it!
