Mediocre. Primary objection is very heavy handed on salt. Chef needs to leave that seasoning to the table. Poor choice of wines.

We do offer salt free preparations and wish you had expressed your desire for such at the time. Our wine list is quite extensive, and you were graciously accommodated as we opened 4 bottles until you found a Lodi Red Zinfindel to your liking. We are very accommodating as it is our aim to make our customers happy. We accept... More

We were a party of three, it was my first time at this establishment, and it was fabulous! I do not eat meat, I do like fish, but not seafood. Was recommended to have the smoked and candied salmon for starter - oh my... what a delight. I didn't really have a main entree, but asked for a selection of... More

We always wanted to try Le Bistro and saw it was part of Dine out Ft Lauderdale. Great meal for a great price. Staff was very friendly and engaging and our meals were wonderful. Take advantage of the sauces, my wife snapper and my chicken curry dishes were amazing. We will be back - with or without the specials.

Two people in our group decided... More

A good place to celebrate a special occasion. It has approximately 50 seats so reservations are recommended. The food was exceptional; the best French cuisine that I have experienced in the US. The chef visited our table to discuss menu options. Overall, this was a great dining experience.

After living in the area for years, I decided to stop in on a whim. First impressions mean a lot to me, and walking into this quaint little bistro in the middle of a neighborhood plagued by McDonald's and second-rate diners was really something else. The portion size was perfect: a full course was enough to make me feel happily... More
