After a great dinner in march 2014, we try to visit this fabulous restaurant again, but the phonenumber didn't work and when we drive by car along the street, there was no "Ooh La La" sign. So it looks like the resaurant hase unfortunately closed. If you like this way of restaurants, try the Botana at the mainstreat. We had... More

Went here with a party of 12 and they were more than accommodating. Food was excellent and the owners were wonderful. Creme brûlée was exceptional

I have never had a dining experience like the one I had last night at Ooh La La Bistro and not in a good way. The waiter seemed to be high on something, the chef allowed his friends back in the tiny kitchen where they were shaking hands and high-fiveing one another over the food which was being prepared and...

From the good reviews, we were expecting great things…apparently the chef was not in the house. We both ordered the beef, which was cooked to perfection, but not sliced cross grain, which makes it almost impossible to chew. We thought many of the sauces, especially the one on the beef were much too sweet, and we thought only three out... More

Enjoyed a delightful meal here last night with a friend. The menu was a la carte or prix fixe (fixed price with a choice of entree). We had 5 small plate appetizers - unexpected and delicious. My main course was the Japanese pork - wanted to try something different - and it was the most tender pork I ever had.... More

We enjoyed the prefix meal of several different tasty tapas, paella, and bouillabaisse as main course, and decadent deserts , all prepared by French born and trained chef. We enjoyed escargot as special... More

We we're walking around the village looking for an early dinner and saw this. The menu looked reasonable, but we kept our expectations low for a French bistro in Big Bear. We were pleasantly surprised. The dining room was comfortable, the service was friendly and the food is more fusion style but was very good. The prefix was a good... More
