This restaurant is enchanting - from the minute you step in at the cozy bar it's like a breath of fresh air. We decided to wait for an outdoor table since it was such a beautiful summer night. So glad we did! We shared escargot...More

Went to dinner last night at Bistro Campagne. I ordered the Lyonnaise salad and Cote du Porc -- delish pork chop. The little potatoes that come with it were Devine and the carrots were great too. My husband had the onion strudel and thought it...More

A restaurant can change in almost two years, for better or worse or remain consistently good (or bad). A repeat visit for an early Saturday dinner left the impression that Bistro Campagne has maintained its excellence in food, staff, and ambiance. Reasonable prices, expansive selection...More

Years ago this used to be an excellent bistro that delivers authentic French bistro taste. In the last couple of years I have noticed a significant decline. The taste of the dishes has changed, and less care is going into the preparation. For example, the...More

Bistro Campagne is a warm and friendly neighborhood restaurant in the tradition of a true French bistro. From the beginning, Bistro Campagne has strived to capture and express that ephemeral quality found in favorite small neighborhood bistros in Paris and rural France: the sense of welcome, ease, fun conversation & and of course excellent food. The setting is a charming blend of prairie-inspired decor and lively Gallic spirit. It is the food, however, that is at the heart of a great bistro, and Chef Michael Altenberg offers a seasonally changing menu of classic bistro fare that is based on the best ingredients he can find. His commitment to organic agriculture leads him to seek products from local organic farmers throughout our Midwestern growing season, and even from organic farms on the west coast throughout the winter. Bistro Campagne is committed to the use of organic food products and strongly supports the sustainable, low impact agriculture movement.
