Bistro Parisien never disappoints. From the service to the food, everything is enjoyable and delicious. They always go the extra mile to make sure everything is perfect. I have been many times and our family has even reserved the Bistro for a private function and...More

We moved to Hamilton a year ago, and have discovered a number of very good restaurants. We would never have found Bistro Parisien on our own. In fact, while looking for it in the neighbourhood, checking at several establishments yielded vague or unknowing answers. It...More

It was the first time we have eaten at Bistro Parisien. We were greeted at the door and brought directly to our table. The restaurant is small – so reservations are recommended. We both ordered the Prix Fixe meal – which includes bread (made on...More

Soup of the day was puree of squash. The soup was ok, but slightly tasteless. It's a bit of a shame, because it would have been a great base for a cream of squash soup. I had the french onion soup. If you have ever...More
