“Good food, but change the bread, please!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

First visit here with friends for an early Sunday dinner. We were the first ones in the door and were greeted by a friendly hostess/server. I enjoyed my meal here at Le Bistro with one complaint: the bread. I have been to Paris and know what French bread or a baguette tastes like. The bread they served was warm, but it wasn't a baguette nor was it very good. Not sure why they serve that.

That aside, the mushroom soup was creamy and with big chunks of mushrooms. Very good. I had the beef tenderloin for my entrée. It was cooked perfectly and served over a potato pancake and the same mushroom soup. Not the best color for a sauce, but it was still tasty.

I didn't have dessert, but my friends enjoyed theirs.

Not a cheap place to eat, but good food.

“Great Food and Friendly Service”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Great French-inspired food. Try the bee pollen dusted brie cheese for something unique and delicious. We were a party of four and all of us enjoyed the well prepared food. Some other reviewers experienced slow service, but our service was both friendly and prompt. We will return here next time we are in the Pompano Beach area.

“Bring your appetite & your patience”
Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

Went there last night. Ordered off the price fixe menu and had four outstanding courses. The food was superb. The service, slow. There was another table seated shortly after us where the husband had to go to the rack where the menus are kept in order to get their menus.
Another patron walking in said that she had been coming here for 7 years, they have outstanding food but the service was slow. Well said

Worth going back when you have a
minimum of 2 to 2 1/2 hours

“Got all night?”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Food was pretty good. The menu includes beef Wellington, with the note that it takes 30 minutes. Worth considering, since everything else took much longer. Service was very slow, very disorganized and overly familiar. Also, restaurant decor is notably unattractive.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

It was really worth driving almost an hour to this restaurant. The ambiance is enjoyable, and the food...DELICIOUS! The owner, Andy and Elin, take pride in offering the best quality of food and service..
If you are vacationing somewhere around Fort Lauderdale you should plan on having dinner at their place. Everything is cooked with love and presented in an artistic culinary way.
We'll be back soon.
