A friend from Denver made a reservation for us at Bistro Vendome...and I am glad she did. Excellent food, service and atmosphere. My wife and I both had the duck confit and loved it (especially the mashed potatoes included with the dish). Our friend had the scallops and said they were wonderful. The service was excellent. The waiter quickly realized that we wanted lots of time to catch up (as old friends) before giving our entree orders. We appreciated that he gave us this time w/o bothering us, but was quick to appear when we did want to order our food. Although the relatively high prices are to be expected, I would still consider the food and experience a very good value.
