“Another Great Meal--Service, Not so Much”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

This was our third time to Bistro Vendome and the food and wine were, as usual, wonderful. I had the Canard aux deux facons, two others had Steak-Frites, and the fourth had the sole. the salads and appetizers were excellent. I really loved the duck (magret and crisped confit) and the two steaks were cooked perfectly with very generous cuts. The sole was a bit overcooked, however. Our real complaint, though, was with a waiter that ignored us for long periods of time talking to other clientele. He never asked us if we liked out meals, was just disinterested in us at all. We decided to skip dessert and go elsewhere and his tip reflected out displeasure. I'll definitely go back, but will request a different waiter if I see him again.

“Best French food in Denver”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

Best French meal in Denver.
The Bistro transcends heaven.
The brunches are out of this world but there dinners stop traffic.

I am already craving the duck confit.
Yum.

“Awesome Little Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

Loved this place. We remember it when it was the Little Russian Cafe. The wait staff was excellent and well informed. We tried the dishes that were recommended and they were all excellent and reasonably priced. Great wine recommendation and lovely ambiance. The chef brought us some mushroom soup to try that was delicious! We will go back there again!

“Amazing Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

My boyfriend really raves about this place and he took me one evening when I was visiting him in Denver and the food is just simply outstanding. Tucked away off the street in lower downtown is this jem of a place. Great Great Food! Wine of plenty! If you love French food, this definitely is one of the best places to eat. The atmosphere is amazing with having to walk through into the back as it is hidden from the street. Large outdoor seating as well, very romantic. I did think the portions were small for the prices but the salad with had a little truffle oil which was quite the taste! The service was okay, at first our waiter was very attentive but after the first course came out he seemed to loose interest, i think at those prices, the attention should be paid more to the customer and he wasn't even that busy. Otherwise, great restaurant.
