After opening to tremendous reviews a few years ago, the Bistro on Spruce went into a decline where food and service quality went down considerably. I am happy to announce that they have found their way back to fantastic service (thank you Josh!) and great food. Their fish tacos are particularly good. Ask for some of the creamy garlic sauce...

We almost walked out. This would have been a first for us; however, when the service is soooooooo poor... the waitress forgot out menus, twice, and then she forgot that she had a kid's menu. Two quesadillas and two sandwiches took 45 minutes to get to our table. Bad experience. We won't be back, even though the food was actually... More

A little bummed the fire place wasn't working but thats not what we were there for. First read of the menu and I was already pleasantly surprised to find unique breakfast and lunch items! There was something for all of our tastes and I got to try a bite of all 8 different things we ordered from irish to cuban... More

Had another enjoyable lunch there with a friend who had never been there. Both of us were pleased, as I usually am. The French onion soup is always a winner, the waitstaff is always helpful, knowledgeable and heads-up. One of our very favorite Coeur d'Alene eateries.

Excellent, creative, menu. Wonderful service, great prices. Simply, we left Chicago for Portland 14 days ago and this is the best meal we've had on our whole trip.

Nice place--well appointed and comfortable. Excellent service and food. Many locals in the crowd and the manager clearly knew them. A bonus is 40% off bottles of wine on Tuesday nights. You can cork your bottle and take teh rest home--a bonus. All in all good food and value.

First visit was mother's day buffet, very busy but very tasty food (great lamb). I talked my neighbors into a combined birthday dinner at the bistro and we all ordered the shrimp and grits. None of us were talking as we were quietly savoring every delicious bite. I can't wait to eat that again.

At first glance, this place is beautiful, nicely appointed and comfortable. Nice wine selection and food that sounds appealing. On vacation to visit family in Coeur d'Alene we chose the Bistro for lunch. 3pm shouldn't be busy so sounded like a great idea. Well, we were absolutely wrong. Service was terrible. While we were one of 3 tables being served... More

And as a bonus, on Tuesday bottled wine is half off! Very nice staff and very good food. Nothing exotic, well prepared fish (although not local... somewhat surprising)

The fish tacos were not very good. The bench seat in the booth was very uncomfortable. The music, atmosphere and service on the other was good.
