Four of us came after theatre and were seated within a few minutes. Love the unique menu and the variety for our diverse food requirement. One person had the steak tartar (favorite) another had the crepes as an appetizer, before our main course. The combination of flavors makes every bite delicious..

Excellent bistro. Felt like we were in France. Best mussels appetizer I've ever had. I had steak frittes, my wife the roast chicken. Both delicious. Home made ice cream selection to top things off. Our waitress was friendly. Only negative was the long wait between appetizers and entrees.

It's such a pleasure to dine at Bistro Vendome! It always exceeds expectations. The chef and kitchen obviously at the top of their game. Each plate is perfectly prepared, seasoned and plated. I had the crepe Vendome and am already planning a trip back to savor it again - delicious! Our server Rachel was a doll and on top of everything. Keep it up Bistro Vendome - you are one of the best in Denver!

The parts of the meal that were the most enjoyable were the ambience (once the children were reigned in) and the petrale sole main dish and the amuse bouche. The sole, especially, was very nicely done. And our wine pairings were very good. There were a few things that detracted from the meal: the duck confit was overly salty and not crisped. The steak tartar had far too much "stuff" mixed in. I have sometimes had this dish served very bare bones and the condiments (minced shallots, caper, dijon,etc) on the side. I think I prefer that preparation. Also, while I wouldn't call our service slow, I would say that our waiter was inattentive.

This place was beautiful and the food was incredible. It was a full house so it could have been a bit more mellow and intimate but the ambiance was dreamy and I would still consider my evening perfect. It took a while to seat my party of 4 even though I had a reservation, which had me wary of the experience ahead. The food took quite a bit to get out; a couple that arrived after us received their entree and finished it before our plates arrived. However the staff was professional and provided the formal service you would expect in an establishment such as this. They were very attentive with our drinks and were pleasant when answering the any questions about the menu. I look forward to returning on a less busy evening, if that is even possible at such a gem of a restaurant!

A wonderful restaurant with a very attentive and friendly staff. Quickly corrected a minor mistake from our order. Food is excellent. I had steak frites and learned from previous times to ask for them without the sticky sweet coating they put on them. They were happy to comply and we all enjoyed our food.

Bistro Vendome is our "go to" restaurant before events at the Pepsi Center. We have had many positive experiences with them. The food is good, reasonably priced with a great wine list. It's simple, elegantly casual and of high quality without being stuffy or pretentious. Unfortunately our last experience did not hit their usual high mark.
We sat down at 6:00 for an 8:00 concert at the Pepsi Center. We ordered dinner by 6:10 and then we waited. At 7:00 I mentioned to our waitress that we had a concert at 8:00 and was told, "so does everybody here." We watched tables that arrived after us eat, pay and leave and we still had no food and a second bottle of wine we ordered 15 minutes before failed to materialize. At 7:15 I complained to the two managers (owners?) and within seconds there was a flurry of service activity at our table. The wine was comp'ed which was great. Unfortunately one of the steaks ordered medium arrive cold center rare and had to be taken back. A fresh medium one arrived within 90 seconds. We paid our check while eating as fast as we could. Fast Pedicab to the Pepsi Center and hit our seats just as the lights went down for Sting. It worked. Bistro Vendome usually does far better. They did do a great job trying to fix what they realized was a poor performance. We will be back. They deserve another try to redeem themselves.

Movie night a bust - couldn't serve the dining room even With a set menu - really average food due to lack of attention to detail in sauce and quanity, didn't live up to regular expectations or as advertised. Julia child would have been disappointed. Sad also to see management n staff enjoying wine w movie in cushioned booth while I stood due to hard bistro chair. Much needed revamp for further productions.

Bistro Vendome is always a delightful place to dine any time of the year. in summer the patio is delightful. The food is varied and always delicious. The wine list is excellent. Servers are knowledgeable and attentive making for a most pleasant dining experience.

Only problem was the fruit flies in the beer and wine. They replaced the beer but couldnt stop nature. Maybe if all the ceiling fans were working it would have blown them away. Server was apologetic but it put a littel damper on the meal. Small portions but very tasty. I would go back.

We have our anniversary dinner at Bistro Vendome every year as this is where we had our wedding reception. The night out is better each time we visit. Not sure how they can top it next year!! Special thanks to Shelby and Christine for making it extra special. The food and experience never disappoint. Amazing cuisine and even better staff. Saying thank you is not even close to expressing our gratitude. See you soon.

We had a wonderful experience there. The food and wine were excellent. Our waiter was very friendly and courteous. He knew we had a show at 8pm and worked hard at getting us our food and bill. I felt you were very accommodating because our friends were coming from out of town and I needed to change reservations at the last minute to 6pm. We were very, very pleased and will be returning. Thank you.

Always fabulous! Always. Love the food. Service is incredible and knowledgeable. We sat outside and if felt like we could havebeen dining any place in the world. This is the place I always recommend. Thank you Bistro Vendome. You are the best!!

Very good food, though several dishes seemed too salty. (One of our indicators - our elderly mom adds salt over & over to her meals but didn't ask for the salt once.)
The waiter, Adam, was absolutely excellent - knowledgeable, caring, creative & willing to go the extra mile. Tres professionel et charmant!

We had visited Bistro Vendome on our last visit to Denver as a group four years ago. We were there again for the same choral festival, and decided it would be great to make our last night get together in town at the bistro. It was as good as it was last time, and we really had a fitting end to our time in Denver.

Really a nice surprise. We were from out of town and I booked this restaurant before we arrived in Denver. My trout dinner was amazing enough to make me wish I had time to dine there again before we left Denver. A real find.

It was very pleasant evening to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Service was great, Adam, seemed to show up just when we needed him, did not bother with annoying questions. Atmosphere was friendly, it was quiet, so we could have a nice conversation. Food was delicious.

Excellent service, well organized by trained staff. Very crowded indoor area surprisingly insulated for noise muffling. Excellent Bistro type food - especially from Burgundy region. Decor appropriate for Place Vendome simulation.

I was in Denver for a convention (5 days). This was by far the best food I had while I was in Denver. It was so great I had to come back before I left. Both meals were exquisite. Every aspect of the dinner was outstanding. And the service was great. When I returned, the hostess, waitress... knew me and remembered what I had ordered for dinner. I felt as though I was special.

Went to Bistro for brunch. Love the Parisian feel of the courtyard which makes it feel very European. The location is off Larimer and yet removed from the bustle of the street. Had lamb crepes that was amazing! The cocktails were well made and presented. Overall a great dining experience

Bistro Vendome is one of our favorite places. Their terrace is a great place to be seated in the early evening after the day's heat is moderating. Over the last 6 months we have experienced some inconsistency in the food quality and preparation. At out latest visit the trout was exceptional but the steak au poivre was disappointing. The meat was tough and not well seasoned and the sauce was overly sharp. We are beginning to lose confidence in this restaurant.
