Excellent food with a french country flair. They go the extra mile in using prime ingredients rather than making short cuts that so many do. Nice presentation, great service. Waiter helped guide us through some items on the menu that were not quite mainstream. Oyster soup was very good with about 5 fresh, local oysters that exploded with flavor. Cassoulet was beyond fantastic, very hardy, great flavors. Were were stuffed beyond measure but had to try the bourbon ice cream. Not knock your socks off good but still a cut above the pack.

Bistro Bobette is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is excellent on any given day, but their holiday dinners are extra special. Thanksgiving is especially tasty with all the traditional foods, but many other delicious choices. The pumpkin tart dessert was a perfect end to a wonderful afternoon.

Our first time here. The service was very good, although I really wanted to be able to speak French! We entered the restaurant with a "Bonsoir" and got no response! I tried several times to speak French during the evening, but again got no response. The food was really delicious and presented nicely, as was the service and wine list. We weren't rushed. My only complaint was the music which was more for a bar situation: an up beat jazz loop, which I thought wasn't soothing for dinner. Nobody walked us to the door when w left. Only 2 other tables were served when we were there.Other than that, we enjoyed our evening. $190 for two with tip.

This was our first time to the Bistro. The food was delicious and our waiter attentive and prompt. We had the beef tenderloin, escargot, tuna tartare, oysters and grilled octopus. Everything was freshly prepared and tasty with maybe a little too much sauce on the beef. Highly recommended although its not cheap. Request a table at one of the banquettes.

The snails were delicious and the bread hot and crusty. The beef tenderloin was cooked perfectly. Profiteroles made it perfect. The red wine by the glass was fair. Ask for a booth as the bistro like chairs get old quickly.
