The ambiance is pleasant, the food is average, the waitress was polite and attentive. My husband had the Grilled Churrasco and I had the Grilled a Salmon. I will probably try other restaurants before coming back to this one.

The French Bistro is owned by two of the nicest people and operated with the help of their delightful family. It's a great place for lunch or dinner. Their homemade salad dressing is the perfect compliment to their fresh salad. The menu is not truly French, but you will find the perfect meal for whatever you feel like eating.

Not sure if there's much French going on here but the food is good nonetheless. Their snapper dishes are good and anything chicken is excellent. Make sure to get the Carmel crepe flambé for dessert!

The French Bistro is not French, but it is well maintained and the staff is good. They have a couple of items on the menu that sound French, but the local's know its Argentina. I enjoyed my lunch.

Breaded steak with lime, white rice with parmesean cheese, vegetables, bread, olives, and a house salad, always delicious! Don't forget to have some of the chocolate mousse!!

We dined here many years ago looking for a French restaurant in the area. And were disappointed to find that it is more Argentinian then anything else. This past week we decided to try it again thinking that maybe the owners changed and it is a French bistro (as it is named). Again we dined on Argentinian fare with a... More

Most likely the owners, from Argentina, bought this place and never changed the name. It has no French dish in the menu with the exception of a snapper "a la francaise", which my wife and I ordered. It was good but not quite the original one. Too much sauce. Most of the dishes are latin. You are welcomed, very friendly,... More

This Argentinian-owned restaurant with French-type picture on the wall was once a delightful little eatery. We had dinner there and I lunched with a frend there a few months ago. This evening we went back (probably for the last time). The place was practically empty at a quarter of 7 in the evening.. Only half dozen tables had patrons at... More

The restaurant is very quaint and the staff is very friendly and courteous. The food was good and the dessert are excellent too. In addition, the portion are adequate. I like the flat skirt and the creme brûlée!!!! Will recommend and will return.
