I sat at the bar and had a 2 dozen oysters. They oyster presentation is delicious and the bartender is very knowledgeable about the oysters. They shave fresh horseradish for you and provide all of the dressings including cocktail sauce, tabasco, vinegar finishing and fresh horseradish!

I come here on a business trip every year and this is my favorite place to have oysters and beer. The view is amazing and the bartender, Josh, is cool.

We came here on a Saturday night for dessert and coffee. The creme brulee was yummy, although the caramel crust on the top was a tad thick.

The coffee drink was perfectly prepared with a heated sugar rim!

Service was great all around.

We'll be sure to be back to try their dinner menu.

I have been to Le Grand Bistro multiple times and I always have a perfect meal! I visited with my best friend from out of town this time. We were treated to 5 star service by Walter, (truly all the staff was marvelous) who even split and plated our special rack of lamb dinner (order this if you can, it’s amazing!). He also recommended the dessert special, the pear tart. It was so good it melted in our mouths! I also recommend the sticky pudding for dessert, it’s a unique and very satisfying treat. I would call it their signature dessert. Honestly though, you cannot go wrong at Le Grand, order anything!

Their wine list is also superb. Every wine I’ve had has been outstanding, and I love that you can choose the size of your pour.

Finally, the atmosphere at Le Grand is unbeatable in my opinion. It’s warm and elegant, yet unassuming. The view is spectacular, especially if you can time your dinner for sunset. Overall, this is my favorite restaurant in the area, it doesn’t get any better than Le Grand Bistro Americain.

P.s. For a special treat, don’t miss brunch!

I eat here several times a year, and it's all ways a pleasure, particularly during the summer when outside seating is available.

Our group met for lunch.It was a beautiful summer day and dining at an outside table could not have been better. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
