One of our "go to" places to eat a fine meal when we are visiting San Antonio. Our meals were excellent and our server, Phillip, took great care of us. We can not recommend it highly enough.

My happy hour cocktail, vodka and raspberry, was delicious. The pear salad was a wonderful way to start my meal. The mussels were big and plump in a tasty sauce and the bread was soft and fluffy, perfect to sop up the sauce. The french fries were the best I’ve had lately. The waiter was above and beyond helpful with my dining partner. The bathroom was beautiful and immaculate (I do not know about other ladies but this counts with me) thanks Bistro09.

A wonderful French food dining experience. Food, service and ambiance were amazing. My duck breast was cooked perfectly to crisp skin and render fat layer between skin and meat. First duck breast that I have found cooked properly in San Antonio. What a treat! Recommend it highly. Reminds me of my time in France.

Food did not get a 10 due to the after dinner coffee. We had always enjoyed the strong coffee served in normal coffee cups. This time it was extremely weak coffee served in a glass w/metal handle cup, which was actually uncomfortable to hold.

The food and service were amazing. This is the first real French style bistro I have been to, and the bar is set really high. The people who were also there were friendly and seemed to have known each other in a very communal and hospitable way, making the entire environment warm to be in. The only downside was a dog that barked a few times and scared our table, but that really is minor as the pet owner was apologetic and friendly with us and the wait staff. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Everything was delicious! We were a little disappointed in the Bibb and Basil Vinaigrette salad, though. We had it before, and each leaf was already dressed as opposed to serving the dressing on the side. Otherwise it was a memorable meal!

We have always liked this place but hadn't been there in a while. We went for different items on their "restaurant week" menu. The country pate and spinach were excellent. The monkfish was a ver y pleasant surprise. I had beef bourginon which was also outstanding. The Bordeaux wine we had was well priced and went perfectly with dinner. Thanks for a great evening

Service was on point from entry to exit. All five of us had a different dish. The bread reminded us of traditional French baguet, crunch on outside and soft on the inside. Our server and team kept the bred and butter coming....yummy. The Lobster Lasagna was the star. The Paella was tasty, but it was soupy versus moist with a little crunch of the rice. Cocktails were on point! Felt like a valued customer always a plus.

The mussels were overcooked and way way too salty. Glad I had water and beer to drink rather than wines. Cooked so long the mussels were the size of a peanut (except for a half dozen or so) and many empty shells - all garlic & salt and no sauce. to dip bread into. Red snapper was cooked fine, but almost to overcooked. It was a bit dry and with the addition of butter was fine. Plated with the vegetables; nicely presented. Chicken Lollipops were very good I was told by my dining companion. Refill of the diet Coke was a nice touch and greatly appreciated. Service was attentive and not overbearing - job well done.

The Kier Royales were great The Chilean salmon was great. The bread was great. The service was a bit off probably because one waiter was covering the room where we were and beyond. We were never asked about ordering dessert. The presentation of the creme brulee to our party's birthday guy was very nice and it was very delicious--he asked the waiter to bring spoons for each person at the table.

Sadly we were seated next to the Loud Squad of young college girls who could not maintain decorum (and their waiter was loud right along with them). Our waiter did a fine job...but...honestly...many need retraining on how to wait table in this post-covid world. That said, the food is always marvelous and we will be back.
