Tried for lunch and quite enjoyed the experience.

Had made an advance reservation and were seated at once, but this was not surprising as the place was only half-full. There was a fair amount of noisy chatter and one can imagine it get very noisy when it is fuller.

The menu offered a nice selection of interesting choices. We tried a French Onion soup that was somewhat bland and had too much of a tomato taste, which seems to be unusual anyway. As an appetiser, we also tried the szechuan short rib lettuce cups that were excellent, though an additional lettuce cup would have been helpful.

These were followed by a dish described as crispy chicken with fingerling potatoes and a jus based sauce. Unfortunately, what was delivered first time around was not crispy, not least as it seemed to have been drenched in the sherry vinaigrette which was itself far too oily. The re-presented replacement dish was much better. Meanwhile, the Asian chicken salad was very good, was was the sauce that we had on the side as a precaution.

Service generally was good but table clearance was poor, and the left-over French Onion soup bowl sat at the table until we paid the check.

Overall, perhaps a slightly generous Very Good.

Great menu - great food - great ambiance - you want more? it is in the shopping mall in Boca!!! We sat, relaxed and totally enjoyed ourselves, and then were ready to do some more shopping.
This restaurant is a great place to go for lunch or dinner. The menu is imaginative and the room is pleasant.

We go every week to this wonderful restaurant and enjoy the salads and their pizza which in our opinion is among the best in South Florida. The restaurant is beautiful, comfortable, and the service is excellent. The Bistro is a gem and a good value.

Returning after our very successful visit last year, we were not disappointed. This place is quietly elegant, reasonably priced, with an inventive menu and superb staff. We made a special trip to come back. This year we enjoyed the Nor'easter cocktail and had two appetizers - the grilled calamari and the humus, both excellent - and then split the tasty bouillabaisse. i'm sure we'll be back next year and will look for other Bistro N's in other places.

Very unexpected place to eat. I've only been for lunch, which is pretty light but satisfying. I usually get a salad and save room for dessert... White chocolate bread pudding. That's all you need to know. I would even recommend just going for the dessert!
