Recently our party of 4 had lunch at Bistro La Bon. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the day which made it extra nice. The menu offered something for all of us and we enjoyed the meal. I had a delicious beet salad; our son ordered the risotto, my husband the octopus and a salad, and our daughter... More

As with all buffets, they had some great dishes and some not so good, but overall the choices were great and plentiful. In addition to the buffet items, you could ordered eggs, bacon and eggs benedict. The sauce on the eggs... More

We ordered several small plates and shared, while planning a summer trip. We dined early. Service was prompt. The food was fresh and delicious and nicely seasoned.

I had dinner with three colleagues and it was fantastic. The octopus, the desserts, the gnocchi, everything was spot on. I must highlight two dishes though; the Swedish meatballs were exemplary and the Lavender Chicken was a perfect melody of flavors, I sat back and savored the moment. What I appreciated was the attention to detail on how the skin... More

I tried to order a gift certificate for her Birthday. Without even a greeting I was told to go to their web page and order it myself. I was so taken aback that I immediately ordered the gift certificate from another restaurant. How about just saying: "Do you mind to do it yourself on the web page?" Or... I don't... More

I dined here during their extended restaurant week. I caught them on the last day and I'm so glad I did. I had a wonderful evening dining at the bar. The salmon was cooked perfectly and so, so, so delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We choose to eat here while staying in Plaza Midwood given excellent reviews on all web sites for foodies. The restaurant lived up to its reputation. All of the dishes were top notch, the service was warm & friendly yet very professional, the environment was classy.
