We visited Petaluma, a magnificent town in Northern California, and had an exquisite meal at Le Bistro. OK, I get it. The owner/chef is rumored to be a little "rude", "difficult", whatever...when you serve food like this, you can afford to be. We tried to...More

So many restaurants are so noisy, you can't hear yourself think or have a conversation with your friends. Le Bistro is small and intimate, but it is the perfect place for dinner with good friends. The food was delicious. We all agreed we can't wait...More

Quaint and charming little restaurant. Excellent food, good service and somewhat limited but good wine list. Nice place for a dinner for two.

Used to eat at the Bistro on a regular basis, we moved away 6 years ago so we were looking forward to it again. We were NOT disappointed. Fresh food just right portions and pleasant service?

My boyfriend made reservations for Valentines. Such a treat. They are a bit difficult to book so here are some tips. They don't do online bookings and you should call them just a week before at around 3 or 4 p.m. to book ahead. You...More

The food is superb. One chef/owner controls everything and quality reins supreme. Very small venue. Difficult to get reservations because it is a favorite with locals and has so many returning customers. Book well in advance.

This is an awesome place to enjoy delicious food. It is not cheap, but I feel the quality and quantity of their food makes each entree worth its said price. I'd say an entree is about $25 and up, depending on your selection... More
