Too bad this place closed. I am convinced that their problem was their wine list. The food was alittle pricey but there was no wine under a$60 a bottle and most were well above. This meant that we only went for special occasions because its...More

The food was okay, not but not great. I expect higher-end food from a top dollar restaurant. The wooden chairs are uncomfortable as others have noted. The service was very good, but the restaurant was almost empty on this weeknight evening. The crabmeat crusted sole...More

White tablecloth; French Bistro. Great food; and great long term staff. The owner; Roe, is wonderful. Fun time for business, family or friends.

The food is reliably excellent (order the steak frites if you like this dish) and the proprietor will learn your name with surprising speed. This is good quality comfort food with a Greenwich/New Canaan price tage

We have been coming here since in opened about a million years ago. The atmosphere is French Bistro, not haut cuisine. The food as always was well plated, but last night was uninspired. The service was outstanding, which was a delightful novelty.

Small portions and a family of three, which we are, can easily spend $300. Better to go to Luc's in Ridgefield or Bon Appetit in Wilton--both of these restaurants are more authentic and very affordable.

The food here is amazing. Go in the summer when you can sit outside because it is very small and the tables inside are close together. Also, there is no bar so if your table isn't ready only option is to stand in the alcove....More

A treasure of a restaurant. Authentic French food, cozy and authentic atmosphere, great service. Every meal we've ever had there has been excellent. It's always a treat to spend an evening at Bistro Bonne Nuit.
