No where else in Bluffton or Hilton Head SC would you experience Pate, Souffles and many delectable main courses. Claude, the chef never disappoints with his culinary creations. The staff is so welcoming. Close your eyes and you will be transported to a bistro in Paris.

Our first time to the quaint Claude & Uli's Bistro. We decided to enjoy the Prix Fixe (3 course special). Atmosphere very nice although the tables are very close (european style, waiter okay (nothing special) and the service was good. We both started with the Lobster & Sherry Bisques - very disappointed, tasted like broth with old bay ( neither... More

Valentine's day repast especially enjoyable. Scallops wrapped in sole-scrumptious, filet with red burgundy sauce-excellent. Will return before we depart the area and try their nearly bird special.

This is a great special occasion or romantic dinner spot. Staff is very nice and a really nice menu. It is not so frenchie that the average person would not be able to find something to enjoy. Staff is really good about presenting and explaining the menu. Great food and desserts

We had the absolute most wonderful time. Our server was attentive and lovely. The place was a beautifully decorated cozy Bistro with lots of charm. My salad was perfectly dressed with nice crisp leaves. The Veal Normandy was OUTSTANDING!!!!! The Calvados Mushroom Sauce was perfection. It reminded me of my trip to France. The sauce was brimming with Calvados -... More

We always enjoy this lovely restaurant and were not disappointed this time. Arrived on a Friday night without reservations and were seated and served promptly. Food was fabulous as usual.

We've dined here before and it was good. Might have just been an off night. Fish was really not good, sauce worse. Every restaurant can have an off night or perhaps I just ordered poorly... generally it's very good. No vegan or vegetarian options!

Very pleasantly surprised by the excellent food and service in this strip mall-based french restaurant. My wife and I enjoyed a romantic evening in a quaint environment. The ex-pat french chef/owner is very gracious and charming.

We were excited to try this restaurant as we noted that is #1 in Bluffton. Our experience was a disappointment and we hesitated to write a review as we will not come back but we have relied on others input for TripAdvisor that we felt obligated. The food was bland and poorly prepared overall. The Cheese Soufflé and Romaine salad-... More
