“Could Have Been Better.”
Review of Bistro Elise

Reviewed 27 May 2012

We ate here for breakfast and the experience should have been better. The $3.33 breakfast is certainly a bargain. The room is cute and tastefully done, but the whole operation was disorganized. There were quite a few people at the restaurant and there was a long line waiting to order(the customer places his/her own order). There were several empty tables that had not been bussed. Customers(after ordering) were standing around waiting for tables to be bussed. We and other customers finally just bussed our own tables(not at all sanitary). Even though the area is non-smoking, the smell of smoke was ever present. It is always possible our experience was not typical. On the plus side, the food was cheap and good.

Cliff notes: Good service, good food, and good prices.

Can you beat the 3.33 breakfast? I loved it. It's probably more of a lunch place, especially with the bar around the corner, but we were there for dinner when the fancy restaurant decided to take forever to see if they could seat us. The Biltmore has a bigger menu and kitchen, but we thought the food here was much better and more relaxed. They make an effort for quality and it shows.

There's also Free WiFi...its kinda funny how in some ways, North Lake Tahoe places can be very progressive... :)
