Came here on graduation weekend with my family and we had a wonderful experience. We were significantly delayed by traffic and we called to let them know and they could not have been nicer. We loved our server; she was efficient and delightful. The menu was pretty standard French bistro fare, and everything we tried was great - from the... More

Bistro Les Gras is a cozy little spot in Northampton, and a welcome respite from the sea of surrounding vegan and vegetarian options that abound in this funky town in Western MA. Oysters are fresh and yummy, the frites are amazing and the fare is solid, well prepared and served by an amiable staff. The intimate atmosphere and small but... More

When my daughter suggested a family dinner at a restaurant near her, I was dubious. The Valley does not have a plethora of good restaurants. This was an exception! The food, ambience and service were first-rate. My daughter had the oysters and we all could not resist the BLG Burger with some of the best pommel frites I've ever had.... More

When "Bistro" appears in a restaurant name, one has an expectation of something special. While Bistro Les Gras is small and intimate, the food left us less than enthused. We had Mussels ($12.00); the broth was insipid. We had to ask for bread ($4.00) to accompany this. A Salmon main ($21.00) was good, but not great, and a Risotto ($25.00)... More

I went with my wife and another couple and enjoyed the ambiance in the dining area. The room felt elegant but cozy. The staff was friendly and attentive. I had the BLG burger and pomme frites; it was excellent. The had some great beers to choose from as well. Everyone in our party liked their meals. Definitely recommend.

This place has turned around from a few years back. Excellent food, very well presented, in a nice atmosphere,adequately priced and very good service. Definitely the best dining experience in Northampton. I would also add that it beats the "fine dining" restaurants in Amherst

So we stop here for a nice dinner on our last night in town. Some of the food was great, other was good and some wasn't that good. We had steak tartare and oyster as appetizers. The tartare was delicious and the oyster were great. Then we had three different entrees. 1. The burger was good but not a good... More

We found Les Gras online, and the reviews were promising. The meal was not merely promising, it was the best we've found in Northampton in multiple trips. The menu is small, and seasonal. The space is simple, white table cloth with butcher paper on top. There's a small bar, with a light buzz, including people eating at the bar. Service... More
