We've been to Alain's several times over the last couple of years and always came away thrilled and looking forward to going back. Their food has always been as good as it gets. I prefer it over Benoit (NYC & Paris) by Alain Ducaisse. The food at Alain's has always been just as good with a larger selection, more intimate... More

We were traveling from Boston to Pennsylvania and stopped overnight in Nyack. Delicious food, freshly cooked. I had sardines, my husband had mussels.

Although the menu is a bit too traditional for me, it was well prepared and the service was very good. Attentive staff and warm ambience.

In an inconspicuous strip mall in my home town of Nyack you can treat yourself to the exceptional service and cuisine at Alain's Bistro. One is always made to feel like an old friend in a casual atmosphere where the offerings are of the highest caliber

From the outstanding bread, through a cavalcade of superb dishes ( from the saffron flavored broth in the mussels, the onion soup with its two cheese cover, diver scallops, shell steak, seared salmon) every moment, every taste was a home run. This is truly the gem of the county, surpassing even our old favorite Restaurant X for the quality and... More

I went to this restaurant with two business colleagues, one of whom is from Belgium and the other an American who lived in France speaking regions of Europe for a number of years, so they are a hard crowd to impress! But the reception, food and general service at Alains French Bistro was outstanding. For starters we had pate and... More

We had a wonderful dining experience at the bistro. Alain greeted us at the door and also came to the table to discuss my special dietary needs. He was most understanding and helpful with the menu. He and I discussed my options with my medical restriction for a no salt diet. All of his recommendations were wonderful. Special notes were... More

Saying that this restaurant is Excellent is an understatement. It is a destination restaurant for my girlfriend and myself. I cannot imagine having a less than superb meal here. The prices are quite reasonable, considering the quality of the food and service.

Let me tell you, this used to be my "go to" place...friends, weekends or date night. I used to be able to count on it for a good meal. Unfortunately, things have changed at Alains French Bistro. One night I ordered 'Steak Fritte'; and asked for medium rare...The steak came out well done, and it was as tough as shoe... More

I visited a friend in Nyack for 3 nights...2 of which we ate here. It is truly a mouthwatering experience. The chef is wonderful, the service great, the food is spectacular. I live in MN and truly I want to go back just for the food here (along with the same company). Oh, we even had lunch here before he... More
