I come here ever year for my birthday. I love the atmosphere, food, service and the personal touch that goes into everything that is done here. You can really taste the passion that is cooked into the food. The servers even signed a birthday card for me ! Love love love this place ! Thank you to all who put such thought and love into their job. Most of the time it's the small things that make the most impact on an experience.

We dined there on tuesday night. The restaurant has such a warm feel on such a cold night. Th e server Shelby was great with suggestions on food and wine. The onion soup is delicious and the steak frite with bernaise was so good I wish it wouldnt end.
Overall a wonderful evening .

Food was outstanding! Service was excellent! and atmosphere was wonderful. First time to this restaurant and will not be our last! I had the special of the night, Duck. My husband had the whole fish, both of which were amazing! such great flavor!

My friend and I had a great dinner and the whole dining experience was so fun!
We ended up with the Larimer Square "Hipster Santa" as our waiter, and he was great at his job and fun and accommodating to our request!
I'd highly recommend this restaurant for a excellent dinner in a great atmosphere.

All I can say is WOW. The 3 of us each got a different menu item because we couldn't choose - and so we all tried each other's...My one friend got the quiche (spinach florentine & it was super tasty!!), I got the benedict (FREAKING AMAZING) & their french toast (pain somethin') is unreal. We also had french press coffee which was a great treat, AND I had a bloody mary. All of this and the bill was like $65...clearly brunch is the way to go for this place. Yum yum yum!!!!
Oh, and it was my friend's birthday and they gave her a coupon for a free dessert and glass of wine - how nice! <3 <3

We went for the Beaujolais dinner. Wife isn't a meat eater, except duck, so it was perfect. We had one of everything and shared. The servers were remarkably attentive-best we've seen in Denver. Heavier curtains for winter might be nice-tables for two can be chilly if you don't plan ahead.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in all of Denver. They have great food and are always changing/updating the menu. They also have an extensive wine list (more limited on the beer selection). Really cool atmosphere that is great for B-day's, business, dates, etc.

We wanted a special place for a special birthday celebration and were very happy with our choice of Bistro Vendome. The service was attentive without being intrusive, the different courses were all excellent - the quail was a first for us - and we topped it off with a delightful, and sinful, chocolate desert! Will definitely return.

It is my first time to Bistro Vendome and I found that it lived up to the positive recommendations of friends and family that have been there before. Quiet, off-street location, combined with small French Cafe ambiance, and outside patio when the weather allows. Very nice for special occasions or romantic dates, or fine for small business dinner as well. Great place and I recommend.

The varied menu drew us in to the restaurant. We were not disappointed. The items on the menu were delicious, and the off-menu chicken special was fantastic. The service was attentive without being obtrusive. The wine choices were great complements to the food. It was good stuff.

We had Sunday brunch before seeing Jersey Boys at the theater. I had a Crôque Madame which was flavorful and similar to France. Others had quiche and the mussels. All of it was good. The only negative was that my husband is a celiac and they were aware of this, but still brought his mussels with two beautifully toasted pieces of bread on the top. He had to send it back. The ambiance is wonderful here, but outside dining is quieter.

The eggs Benedict with duck confit were fantastic. Our waitress didn't tell about any specials and we only heard about them after ordering when the server at the table next to us explained the different options so that was disappointing. However I would definitely eat here again as the food was so good.

Really good food! Did I mention, Really Good Food! Great menu, lots of options for everyone.
Our service staff was perfect. Just there when we needed them. Always. But no 'dropping by' asking "How is everything tasting?" Duh...
Great coffee and deserts.
Have never been disappointed. All my guests have been full of praise.

The food was very good, with a nice variety of options. The service was friendly and attentive, without being intrusive or disruptive to the meal. While the reviews I read suggested it was a good place for a romantic dinner, that wasn't the case at all. It was somewhat loud and energetic, making it great for a group of people, but not so good for a couple.

I had a fabulous brunch experience here recently, but on this night when I returned to Bistro Vendome with my wife things weren't as special. There was an air of pretense with the staff-begrudgingly answering questions about the location and menu-that made the evening uncomfortable, and our meals were good, but not what we've come to expect from the stable of Jennifer Jasinski run establishments.

My 12-year-old "foodie" wanted desperately to eat at a great French restaurant for her birthday. Bistro Vendome certainly did not disappoint! Impeccable service, authentic French menu, in a beautiful, cozy setting. The food was truly amazing, but what makes it stand out even further was the attentive staff. They seemed a little amused that a 12-year-old would choose Bistro Vendome as their birthday dinner spot, but when she ordered escargot and steak tartare, they understood that this wasn't exactly your average preteen. They brought her a "mocktail" and comped dessert. We'll definitely return! A perfect evening!

We stopped in here for a Veterans Day getaway trip. We brought along some friends who were in the neighborhood. Our friends took longer than we estimated they would, so we enjoyed a cocktail in the bar area. Once our friends arrived we were seated within a few minutes. We ordered escargot, steak tartare, and chicken liver mousse, and there was nothing left after the 4 of us dug in. Good service, seating is cozy, prices are reasonable for fancy fare.

Oh my, where do I start. The food was fantastic and the value was amazing. We had the escargot, the charcuterrie plate, friend had the whole seabass (which was amazing and she ate the entire thing), I had the pork sausage stuffed quail (to die for) and my other friend had the pork chops. Now my description is nothing like the menu, which is just perfect. I loved the ambience, we were there for a just a girls night dinner. Oh, and desert. Let's put it this way, we each ordered our own and did not share one bite! I had the crème brulee, my friend had the lemon tart (beautiful presentation) and my other friend had the macaroons. I just loved every single bite, and the wine was fantastic. The service was amazing, and we were able to chat, drink and eat without ever feeling rushed.

Pork chop was amazing. Want to go back and try the steak. Im always disappointed when nice restaurants don't keep a couple kegs on hand. So only bottled beer. To there credit they did have some interesting craft choices. Wait staff was great, attentive and knew the many personally. Atmosphere feels historic, clean and vibrant.

Many visits to Sister restaurant Rioja across the street and because that one is so good, never wanted to venture beyond. My mistake! Totally different cuisine but everything else, food, quality, service, ambiance and value-for-money is just as good (or better). Only problem is making the choice in the future (or that of the other 2 restaurants associated with these).

We sat outside, in love, under the white lights and starlight.
Rob was the best waiter I've had in years. Calm, gave us space- great with recommendations (which we listened to) and he cared. His arm tatts are so Denver too which I loved because I love Denver- which is why I live here.
The food was melt-in-your mouth good. We got the quail and rainbow trout. The wine pairing that Rob recommended for us was divine.
Expensive- worth every penny.
