Description: General We invite lovers of great food and wine to experience the casual atmosphere and the authentic French cuisine of Bistro 1902. Our location in downtown Hollywood is styled in tradition of these small Parisian restaurants, starting from the bottle in which we serve you water, ending with the cup in which we serve your cappuccino. And just like these early establishments we are family-owned and family-operated. When you come to dine with us you are our guest, and we cook for you as we would for ourselves. That is the reason why we only serve the finest, freshest and most natural ingredients. We are constantly exploring new alternatives to ensure that we put only the best in the dishes we prepare for you. Bistro 1902 combines a quaint, familiar ambiance with decades of experiences. All our dishes are closely monitored by our head chef, who uses every bit of the knowledge he acquired in the 25 years he spent cooking in 4 and 5 star hotels and restaurants throughout Fr

“Always a fun place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

We've eaten several times at Bistro 1902 - both for brunch and for dinner. Our favorite waiter? Marcello, without a doubt! We like to eat outside so we can people-watch, but the inside is cozy and romantic, especially when the violinist is playing. Not an extensive menu, but enough to choose from. Desserts are yummy, but pricey. House champagne is good, and unlimited on a Groupon is a plus - especially when they are attentive in keeping your glasses full. No children's menu, and not really a place for kids. Hollywood Blvd. is a wonderful conglomeration of restaurants with lots of choices, many with outside seating.

“Delicious”

Great food, service and atmosphere. Would like to see Escargot served with garlic bread, but I was able to use table bread to dunk in garlic butter.

“Not good.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

This place may be going cheap for overselling Groupons. Maybe its been better in the past but we went on a Friday night and were not impressed with the food. Extra tables had been crammed in next to booths and we were placed by the kitchen at a patio set with no chair cushions. A live violinist and flutist alternated playing but it was too loud and shrill to enjoy. The bright spot was the service. Our waiter was great and the rest of the waitstaff were well trained (except for the host). This is rare in south Florida. We both had onion soup that tasted like liptons. I had the snapper and my husband had salmon. The snapper was very tough. I had to work with the knife to cut it. The salmon was very fishy. The food was at the low end of mediocre. We won't go back and won't recommend it.
