What a find.
The food was excellent.All 4 of us were more than satisfied.
The $35.00 special menu is a real bargain ..
Located in a local neighborhood shopping center this small restuarant produces a quality meal not to be missed

“Another neighborhood gem”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Every one of the four courses we each ordered was delicious and we definitely will be back. My swordfish served on a bed of peppers and onions was moist and delicious...just like our helpful waitress said it would be. The bee pollen and lavender encrusted goat cheese served with endive and honey was wonderful. Portions were generous and the ambiance was quaint, quiet and intimate. Service was excellent.

“Enjoyed every bite!”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

We were in search for a stunning beef wellington! After reading the reviews of Le Bistro and learning that Gordon Ramsay also suggests dining at Le Bistro we knew we had to eat here. Le Bistro does not disappoint. The beef wellington melted in our mouths. The crab and shrimp risotto was the finest risotto we have ever tasted. The menu had choices that included duck, mussels, escargot, snapper and lamb chops. We will defiantly be eating there more often.

“Simply Wonderful”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

We have visited Le Bistro several times over quite a few years while visiting family in the area. This includes experiences with past owners. We must acknowledge that our recent visit was by far the best of all. Andy and Elin have done a marvelous job in developing the menu and atmosphere. Service, presentation and quality are top notch. Pricing is very reasonable considering the superb fare, one should not hesitate to order anything on the menu. The wine list is compact but more than adequate, and again properly priced. Recommendation: check this place out, you will not be disappointed. Very impressive.

“Evening of fine French/Continental dining.”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

On a recent visit, we were taken to Le Bistro by friends who live nearby. We may have benefited by our friends' prior relationship with the husband and wife proprietors. Nonetheless, we were impressed with the offerings on the menu (French/Continental with British and other influences related to the Cheshire, England, background and culinary interests of the owner/chef. We were very pleased with each of our menu selections as well as with the special care with which the lactose-free and gluten-free needs of one of our party were met. (The menu is largely gluten-free.) This unassuming restaurant in a strip mall (Main Street Plaza) is worth a visit for an evening of fine dining. (Le Bistro actually is in the community of Lighthouse Point, just south of Deerfield Beach.)

EatingisBelieving, Owner at Le Bistro Restaurant, responded to this review, February 6, 2015
Thank you for dining at Le Bistro on New Year's Eve. We are very glad you enjoyed your meal! I personally phoned you several days later and never received a reply. We serve one large Beef Wellington (10oz filet) for two people. You were served 1/2 of that - an ample portion size. We are a bistro similar to many that you may find in any major city like New York, Paris, London, where people can be found to be sitting close together. I apologize for the server, your glass of wine could have easily been replaced, I had no idea he did that and didn't clean it up? that is just wrong. (by the way, he is no longer employed by us). Your party was seated for over 2.5 hours when we asked if you would be so kind to please relocate to the bar to make way for other diners, as your meal had been complete. I hope we have the opportunity to offer you a service experience to match the food.
Thank you, Kind regards, Elin
