“Excellent Food, Atmosphere, Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

My wife and I had a superb dinner last night, so good we came back for lunch with my son today.

Everything was perfect, from the welcome at the door, the location of the table, the wine, the service and, not least, the food.

The menu is varied, interesting, French with a flair and more. Everything on it had something to make us want at least a taste. And each that we chose was good.

Although the building in which it is located is a concrete monstrosity, the atmosphere of the restaurant itself could be on a street in Paris or Périgueux.

The staff was welcoming, friendly and attentive, without being obsessive.

All in all, we could not have made a better pick in a town of many, many good restaurants.

“Great food, excellent service and a Parisian ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Le Bistro by Liz never disappoints - it has been a favorite of ours for a long time. The atmosphere is welcoming and the Parisian decor is charming. The classics tend to be done well here - pommes frites, french onion soup, duck confit salad,escargot, moroccan crepes, pot au feu, etc, Weekend brunch is a treat. Whether it's 'date' night or wine and desert with friends after a show, it is a wonderful experience each and every time. Ask to be seated in the atrium for that authentic French feeling.

We had a lovely time at Le Bistro! Good food and great service from our server Brennan! We enjoy going here for brunch and we always have good food and service. The atmosphere is nice and bright. Our party of four all had different brunch choices and we were all happy with our meals.
