    The service was pretty good. However, the food was disappointing. The only thing that had flavor was the chicken dish. Everything else was bland.

    I came with my sister before going to The Nutcracker. She asked not to take any photos, but I will be back on Jan 1st, 2023 for brunch. We both started with the French onion soup with melted gruyere cheese. A classic comfort dish. I got a glass of white bordeaux to compliment it. My main course was a whole rainbow trout that had been deboned. Extremely good. Our server, Matthew recommended a another French white wine that was ideal. For dessert, I had the Chocolate souffle with creme fraiche. I paired it with a glass of a French dessert wine, Sauternes.

    It was, as always, a fabulous experience. I am absolutely heartbroken that they are being kicked out of a location that is perfect for them. I cannot believe a company is being allowed to come in and desecrate the perfection that is Larimer street. I’m thankful Bistro Vendome is just moving not closing though. It is a fabulous place

    As always, we really enjoyed our meal at Bistro Vendome. The food was very good, tasty, warm, and served graciously. We had planned to use valet parking as before, but road construction thwarted that. We would have liked to have known when we made the reservation that valet was not available. We are sorry you are leaving the Larimer location, but look forward to trying your new place in Park Hill.

    The Lentil Salad Special was not particularly great. Otherwise we truly enjoyed our meal: 2 Cheeses (Firm Cow & Blue), Trout, Risotto, Pinot Nior, Rouge Burgundy, Chocolate Souffle and a French Press.

    We went to BV last year for the first time and decided to come back for our anniversary again this year. The food and drinks were again wonderful. The only gripe I have is the price for a sausage and cabbage. While they tasted delicious, $29?

    I and my daughter wanted to enjoy a night on the town and Bistro Vendome was an excellent starting point. The food was exquisite (escargot, crispy duck, mussels & cream brûlée). It was rather expensive, but worth it for the food and overall quality and atmosphere. We will go back for brunch.

    Normally I love bistro Vendome. I tell everyone I know it’s my favorite restaurant in Denver and I’ve lived here 22 years. This time was disappointing. The food was good as ever but the wait staff were frankly incompetent. We kept receiving drinks we didn’t order or refills of people’s drinks who already had 2 in front of them but none for the people who had actually ordered. We were severely overcharged for the drinks because they kept refilling the wrong people. The waiter couldn’t pronounce a single thing on the menu and acknowledged not even liking the evenings special. Overall it was a disappointing and frustrating experience.

    Unfortunately, the restaurant is moving out of the downtown area at the first of the year. This has been a favorite of mine whenever I was in Denver. French food done right. With service that makes it a great place. Everytime we go here, it seems like a new chef and new servers but it keeps being a great meal. The owners must be doing something right. There were several items on the menu we considered but went this time with duck l'orange and steak frittes. We had an amazing escargot app and a nice pate. May be worth the Uber to find them next visit.

    Not as good as it used to be. The hostess was rude to us. The waitress wasn't friendly. The food was just ok, and the desserts had no flavor. Sad to see this place decline. It use to be one of our favorites.

    We had a wonderful dinner celebrating my husband’s birthday. The food was excellent, as was our waiter Matthew. He gave great recommendations and was on top of everything without too many disturbances during the meal that made the whole experience a delightful one. Highly recommend the steak tartare appetizer, as well as the crispy duck and mussels entrees, trés délicieux!

    My husband had just flown back into town after being gone for 6 weeks, and we randomly chose Bistro Vendome off of Open Table. It’s tucked away off of Larimer Street, behind some shops, with a cute courtyard for outdoor dining (when it’s not 20 degrees outside). Inside and out had a lovely atmosphere, perfect for a gathering for friends, or a date. Everything we tried on the brunch menu was amazing, and I appreciated their version of a Manhattan. Great brunch cocktail, as it wasn’t as heavy as a regular Manhattan. Our service was prompt and attentive, but not overly attentive. They hit the sweet spot of prompt, available when needed, but not interrupting a nice meal. We will definitely be back!

    The food is outstanding and imaginative. Try the steak that is perfectly cooked, and the french fries are "to-die-for". The service was superb. Our waiter was familiar with the menu and was attentive to our needs--a delight to have around. Prices are very reasonable for a "downtown" restaurant.

    We love to go to Bistro Vendome before we attend a play at the Buell Theatre. We had a 6:00 reservation for a play that started at 7:30. When we arrived - on time - they had no tables available. Seriously? So we ended up sitting at the bar and eating there. I guess that was ok, but I had a reservation. Maybe they need to look at their reservation system a bit closer.
