We have been coming here since Eric opened and the dinner we had last night was excellent. There have been some not so good visits but I think that with the new Chef and staff the Bistrot is getting back to what we have missed.

The lobster bisque was the best I've ever had! The chef is from Bordeaux France and really knows what he's doing in the kitchen. We will be back!

The food was just not very tasty. The place was empty but the wait staff was disinterested and the food took forever to arrive. We have not gone back.

Today we tried this little bistro, our neighbors told us it was so good and we weren t disappointed ! Their shrimp curry is to die for!!! My husband had the beef bourguignon and almost licked the plate !! I recommend that place to all.

A very small restaurant on the corner across from Venice Theater. The food is very French and delicious. They have fixed price meals that are excellent and fair prices. Go there you won't be disappointed.

We really enjoyed breakfast here on a Saturday alongside the Venice Farmers Market. First, the coffee was great ... I'm a coffee lover. Second, the spinach omelette was the best I ever had. Third, the atmosphere is charming. Fourth, the people who work there were...More
