Called to book dinner for 13 tonight for a date in early June. The lady who answered the phone asked me to wait a moment and put down the phone. I could hear laughter while I waited for 5 minutes before hanging up. I called...back a bit later and left a voicemail message. The restaurant, to their credit, did return my call but she was very rude and unprofessional. They just lost a party of 13 which is a shame for us because it is a very good place to dine.More

Le Bistro By Liz is simply perfect. The food, particularly any type of fish, is simply delicious. The lemon-caper haddock is to die for. Truly the service is second to none. Being a brunchy person, we did the Sunday thing and it was equal to...evening dining, which is tough to accomplish. I highly recommend it. Le Bistro is an experience!!More

We thoroughly enjoyed our brunch! We were offered a choice of a free mimosa, caesar or bloody mary upon arrival which was lovely. I ordered the avocado toast and my husband had the croque monsieur. Both were delicious. Friendly server as well! Highly recommend for...brunch.More

A wonderful dinner for 2 at Le Bistro. The food was very good and the service was excellent. We sampled the Dine Around Halifax Menu. Liz is a very hands on owner who tries to visit the diners at the tables to get feedback. We...will definitely become regulars at this restaurant.More

It is a great restaurant/Bistro to go for a couples only dinner or in a group. Staff are well trained and the food - particularly the pasta - is served hot and tasty. Le Bistro by Liz is one of our favourite 'go-to' restaurants whether...we are entertaining, looking to spend some romantic time together or just want to get out of the house. I like to sit where I can see the kitchen and watch the hustle and bustle of the staff and see the steaming hot plates come out to the patrons.More

A group of us visited this bistro on a Monday evening. We had a reservation, so were seated immediately after a check of our Covid paperwork. The server arrived shortly to get our beverage orders. Later she took our food orders. My wife and I...each ordered the evening’s special, haddock with seafood risotto. Others ordered the seafood crepe, boeuf Bourgoin and fish and chips. Our meal was excellent. The others enjoyed their meals as well. The quantity of food was more than several of us could handle so ended up taking some home. The service was great. This place remains high on the group’s list of preferred restaurants.More

After far too many years I retuned to Le Bistro for a fabulous night. Liz and her delightful team run a tight ship with great food and a great atmosphere! Our waiter was friendly and had a nice sense of humor (which I played on...to great laughter). The french onion soup was superb ( as I remembered it) and the other dishes were equally as enjoyable! Will be back again (sooner than my past lapse) for sure.More

I took my daughter to this magical, Parisian inspired bistro this past Friday night. This was a restaurant that I had gone to in the 80's with my mother and hadn't revisisted in 30+ years. My, my, my... even better than I remembered. The food,...incredible. Probably the best mussels I have ever had, the coquille St.Jacque perfect and my daughters seafood crepe was exceptional. None of the seafood overcooked and the vegetables were also tender crisp. Great drinks and lovely cheesecake to end the night. Service was attentive, friendly in a warm cosy atmosphere. I can't wait to go back.More

We didn’t actually challenge them much as it was a brunch menu. We did however enjoy it very much. The best part was the server named Heidi. She was charming, prompt with a great sense of humour!
