If you are on the East side around the 59th Street bridge, this is a great place to dine. Food and service are great.
Classic French cuisine is served with a warm welcome. Besides having great main courses, including off-menu specials, desserts were excellent, including profiteroles with a delicious chocolate sauce.
had to ask for ice 3x at an outdoor table in the sun
pate tasty but not compelling
duck confit tasty but small portions
Provençale mussels very good
extremely pricey water at $8.50 each
I have had many enjoyable meals at Bistro Vendome, but last night, they were definitely off their mark. While recognizing the shortage of service workers in NYC, the restaurant should not have fully booked itself, as service was definitely an issue. The final straw was having our server carrying on close to a 15 minute private conversation with another table, while we were trying to get our check to depart. I am hoping last night’s dismal service level was a one-off anomaly, as I have had so many outstanding experiences here.
Food prep and service are great. Food is wonderful! Back in NYC first time in a year and a half and Bistro Vendome had to be our first dinner.
You can't go wrong with anything at this place. There is something for everyone.
ok as always. nothing exceptional but still very ok.
Overall great dining experience!
Bistro Vendome was back in full swing last night. Packed, both inside and out. Nonetheless, every member of the staff was still as lovely and accommodating as one could wish for. And, although I hadn’t been to Paris since January of last year, it felt like I had returned to a beloved neighborhood Parisian eatery in some quiet residential part of the 17th arrondissement. All food was good except for an Saharan dry confit de canard that was simply un-cuttable. And which was replaced, without an ounce of attitude, by a succulent plate of scallops. Most of the diners were locals who knew the owners, the staff, even the layout. They knew which table they wanted. That unfortunate duck dish aside, we couldn’t have asked for a pleasanter night out in NYC. And we were all eager to return again to that little bit of France in the east 50s.
Thought the food was mediocre and expensive but it was lovely to sit outside in the garden.
lovely restaurant with great warm ambience below the windows.
food was excellent as always.
service was excellent.
the drinks are great.
Great food. Great service from Lorenzo. Made our meal even more enjoyable.
Bistro Vendome is quiet, have well spaced tables and a varied menu that will pease everyone. I have dined here on at least six occasions in the past two months and have never been unsatisfied with my meal or service.
I just love the restaurant. It has great ambience, with wonderful service. they never rush you through a meal. The serving staff is engaging, helpful and fun. The food is as good as anywhere in town.
Delicious food and lovely service. Lovely evening
Very good French food. Feels like you're in Paris. Menu choices will satisfy pretty much everyone. Good range of wine choices, including affordable ones. Several options for outdoor eating as well. I'm definitely a repeat diner!
Fantastic food and service..We had a great time and we highly recommend this restaurant.
We will return often..The chef is amazing!
Bistro Vendome consistently serves some of the best traditional French food in New York. The frogs legs are better than the ones we had in Paris when we could still travel there. The wines offered by the glass are perfect accompanyment to their food. The salads, especially the the artichoke, with the fresh artichoke peeled and the leaves presented surrounding the artichoke heart and greens in the center, was imaginative and flavorful. All main courses were excellent and well priced.
The dessert selection was made difficult by the wide variety of choices. Our choice, the profiteroles, had a light and flaky shell with superb chocolate sauce. Not the usual French restaurant rubber pastry shell with second rate chocolate. And given that we were dining in their hut in the street parking spot, it was still a wonderful dining experience. Great to have, what we hope is, our last meal in their New York dining shack built in the street during Covid.
Good food, excellent service.
Our first time at Bistro Vendome. We had a lovely dinner. Food was great ,as was the service. I had the scallops with an orzo porcini risotto, which was outstanding. I loved it. My husband had the duck confit, also terrific. I can see this restaurant becoming one of our favorites.
The perfect neighborhood bistro.
Great mussels in a variety of options.
We were seated in the front of the building int the outdoor section. It was very attractive and the heat warmers were effective. Two of us ate escargot and mussels with fries and salad. The third had salad to start followed by bronzino . The food was all very good.
This was a family meal celebrating the recovery from a frightening bicycle accident.
It was a great success.
This is a hidden gem on the east side of nyc. Fantasy food great ambience. Service is great. The servers are regularly checking on you. The food is fantastic French food. Great drinks.
We usually have great service but last time we were ignored and when we finally got someone we were told they were short staffed. We would understand that if someone had just told us in advance and not let us sit for 20 minutes with no menus, offer or drinks or explanation of staff shortage (which no one else seemed to have and the restaurant was busy but not full). Once we told them everything went smoothly and food was as excellent as ever. We know staffing is a problem these days for many restaurants but communication is needed by the restaurant to customers!
Had a fabulous stuffed chicken with wild mushrooms. Yum!
Food was outstanding coming from the hospitality industry, everything was on point, will be back in a jiffy
We had a lovely dinner at Bistro Vendome. The food was excellent and the service was amazing! The outdoor/sidewalk dining worked well and made us feel very safe. I would highly recommend Bistro Vendome.
Absolutely wonderful experience! Food was delicious, especially the clams, and they made us feel right at home. 100% would recommend.
Great tasting food and excellent service. Best bang for your buck in Manhattan.
It is like being in France. Everything is amazing from food to service.
Very pleasant. Pea soup wasn’t to our guest liking, but all else was good.
Great place. Nice outdoor terrace in the back. Food is VERY GOOD and priced accordingly.
Curious to know why the "male manager" did not even bother to ask us (i.e., how's your food?) while he asked everyone else (predominantly white) in the patio dining area in the 2 hours that we dined at Bistro Vendome (04 April 2021; 12:15-2:15pm)?
Always excellent. Friendly, warm, kind service.
The food here is exceptional. It’s a nice ambiance. Highly recommend.
One of the finest restaurants in NYC it combines excellent food, hospitality , service and ambiance for great value. A well kept neighborhood secret.
Great place to celebrate a birthday or just have dinner with friends.
