Bistro Vendome Ratings and Reviews

My wife and I arrived a few minutes early, and as we were seated, we requested a quiet table, my wife and friend have hearing challenges, so we were graciously placed in a separate dining room. One of our challenges is finding a restaurant that respects our hearing needs. We appreciated the extra attention from our wait staff in accommodating us.
The brunch menu was great, a delightful selection, and the meal we were served was outstanding! Thanks to the wait staff and the chef, great work!

Really enjoyed our anniversary dinner out, they made it very special! Service was fantastic, food was exceptional and really enjoyed the ambience and the overall feel of the restaurant. The only negative here in my mind is the wine list and the knowledge the staff had around the wine. If you are a wine lover, you may be a bit disappointed but otherwise fantastic restaurant, willl be back.

Terrific change of pace for us! We would not normally consider a French restaurant, but we'll definitely be back to this one! All of our food was exquisite, and was only exceeded by the outstanding, top-notch service we got from our server, Matt! Their specialty is Steak Frites which was perfect IMO. Fresh fish dishes look and smell great and will likely be our choice next time.

Everything we ordered tasted better than we were prepared for. The gnocchis easily made it into the top five best foods I have eaten in my 24 year old life. The steak frites was delicious but the pepper flavor was a tiny bit strong. Overall though it was absolutely worth the price.

My boyfriend and I went for New Year's Eve, and while we had to wait 30 minutes after our reservation was scheduled, once we were seated we had a divine time. The wine and food were phenomenal, from the cheeses to the main courses. The ambiance is beyond perfect for us: it was intimate and romantic, while maintaining a contemporary feel that can speak to all age ranges. Overall, it was a wonderful experience, and I will absolutely be returning in the future.

The food was great but our server was outstanding. He was a real pro and made the experience all the better. We were able to get a full dinner in before the Symphony and it was easy walking distance. I really recommend Bistro Vendome.

We went with friends for brunch. Three of us ordered the croque monsieur which was very good. I would have put a little more béchamel sauce on it and I am sure they would have brought some, if we had asked. We also ordered the French pastries which were very good. French Press coffee is always better than others. Service was attentive and perfect. All in all, it was a very pleasant time.

have eaten here many times and loved brunch. however i think they have a different chef on dec 31. the eggs benedict were dry...not much hollandaise. the croque monsier a bit dry too. the dessert was good and fr. onion soup good, but the usual sparkling quality that i am used to from vendome was missing.

The food was little short of stunning. long pauses to savor and appreciate each bite and constituent part. Service was also excellent. I recommend the charcuterie plate. The Quail was superb. At $75 each for apps, entrée, desert and drinks for this level is a good value. When we want to impress, we will have no hesitation returning with fellow foodies.

We went back to Bistro Vendome for a dual celebration: the birthday of one daughter and the recent marriage of the other. They treated us like royalty, making certain that the dinner was a special occasion. We had a variety of appetizers and main courses; all were fantastic. Everyone was quite pleased. The staff treated us to dessert . We had a leisurely three-hour meal and never had to ask for anything. Glasses were always filled. Courses were well-timed. It was a memorable evening and we will certainly return again.

As always, Bistro Vendome never disappoints. Have been here at least a dozen times and it is absolute favorite Denver restaurant. Whether dinner on a special occasion or Sunday Brunch, it is an authentic French menu, and superb wait staff who know the details of what will arrive on your plate down to the smallest detail.

This is one of our favorite restaurants to visit when in Denver. Food and ambiance was great as usual. The service very attentive. The negative for this visit, we had a 7:15 pm reservation and had to wait 45 minutes for our table, due to a very, very chatty family who just sat after paying their bill. We were offered a table in the entry way, but declined due to it being cold. We were given free desserts to compensate for our long wait, which I appreciated. I always recommend Bistro Venedome to friends headed to Denver, and will continue to do so.

Excellent food. Good wine selection, although very expensive markups on wine. However, and I think this is important, we were overcharged on two items--an $8 salad was charged at $10, and a $10 salad was charged at $17. I pointed it out and was told it was a computer error--no apology, although the bill was corrected. SO--don't leave without checking your bill against the menu prices.
The first time we visited Bistro Vendome ...
The first time we visited Bistro Vendome it was around Christmas and besides the expertly prepared French cuisine, we very much enjoyed the holiday ambiance. There were multi-generational families enjoying a special holiday outing and little would-be ballerinas being treated to a special dinner before going to see a performance of The Nutcracker. We enjoyed it so much that we did it again the following December and then again the one after that, and the one after that, and . . .you get the idea. Such 'traditions' run the risk of disappointing due to inflated, nostalgia influenced expectations, but that has never been a problem for us at Bistro Vendome. The fare is consistently delicious, the service is impeccable, and the experience remains one of the things we look forward to every year's end.

While the french onion soup was very nice the steak could have been better. Was a little chewy. I ordered the rochefort steak frites and while the frites were very good (as always) the steak came out with a huge pile of cheese on top, not in the least bit melted. Very unappealing to look at and not very tasty. I expected more of a slightly melted cheese (not sauce since it comes with a burgundy sauce) but not just a pile of mush on top of the steak. Creme Brûlée for dessert and actually it was not that great either. A bit too runny, not quite set. This was a birthday dinner so we expected great things, and we've been here before. We may not come back because I don't think it was the best value for our money and time.

Bistro Vendome is a place we always enjoy when celebrating anything! We have enjoyed many glasses of sparkling rose and appetizers in their intimate bar, and when we have elected to take it up a notch, the dining room is lovely. We recently celebrated my husband's birthday and the wine, food and service were absolutely perfect.
