I had high hopes for my first visit. Unfortunately it fell short. Sat for 13 minutes at the table and we had to flag down our waiter to even get water. Portions were much smaller than I expected for the price. Calamari was good but scallops were very salty. The waiter brought desert while we were still in middle of... More

Family and friends celebrated my daughter's birthday there on New Years Eve brunch! My daughter found the place by Googling "best brunch in Charlotte"! Charlotte is a 30-minute drive from us. The food & drinks were great and prices were surprisingly reasonable! But, that's not the best part. It was our experience! Our server, Hunter, hilariously handled all of our... More

This hidden gem is located in a rather rundown strip mall - but step inside and you will be transported. Very eclectic menu - never had a bad meal. Excellent brunch. Nice lounge area with couches.

When ever we go to Bistro La Bon each of us order something different on this unique menu. This way we get to try a little bit of everything. Last time we went we ordered the kale salad, beet salad, gnocchi and filet. All was outstanding. We actually ordered another gnocchi they were so good! The best part is that... More

We were 6 for breakfast, my comments are for that only but a good sampling of their choices. Food was excellent with portions just right. Service was good. Bloody Mary's were great with 6 different vodkas to choose from. Atmosphere was pleasant. All in all I would recommend it.

We went as a group of 9 co workers during restaurant week. The menu was unique but limited due to the timing. I will return when I can enjoy the full menu selection. The avocado spring roll and duck were the two items we enjoyed the most. The service started out a little rough, but improved with time.

AWESOME place. All food was stellar. We had the avocado cucumber soup, kale salad, potato gnocchi, mussels (omg the sauce!), pan seared salmon, lavender chicken and finally the bread pudding. All of it was tasty. Our server Jake was so pleasant that he made everything even better. You simply can't go wrong here and I can't wait to go back!

We love this place and have been coming here since they opened. The food is delicious and the staff is always welcoming. The brunch is delicious and this is also a great place to come a nice dinner out.

I went to Bistro Le Bon on a friday night and asked for a Ribeye on the bones. For some reason my order was delivered to another table and the manager came to me to say sorry by the confusion and took some more minutes and got my plate. It was delicious. Had a chocolate mousse later and for my... More
