Bistro Vendome Ratings and Reviews

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.

My aunt and I both had been wanting to try Bistro Vendome for years, but I live in colo spgs and we just couldn't get there. On that Friday, I left work early and and on a whim thought we would see if we could find parking and get in. I wasn't sure my online reservation had gone through. Clearly it did. She is a VERY picky eater but enjoyed herself so much. She said when she gets out if town company in August she would bring them to BV. Kudos to the team there for meeting and surpassing her expectations. A good evening all around.

This was my delayed Father's Day dinner so I got to pick the restaurant. Bistro Vendome is one of my favorites and it was a delicious and fun dining experience. We asked to be seated outside as the ambiance is delightful...like a touch of Paris. We started with Moules and a cheese platter, both of which were excellent. Three of us had the Steak Frites (2 bernaise and 1 peppercorn) and my son had the Caille Rotie (sausage stuffed quail). We always share tastes and everyone agreed that the food was wonderful, as usual!

We have been fans of Bistro Vendome for over 15 years. It's our go-to place for the certainty of a lovely evening out with superb service and wonderful food. We've never been disappointed!

We have eaten at Bistro many times and have had a great experience, however our visit on Monday night left me disappointed. We sent a message ahead of time that this was an anniversary dinner, and had been to Bistro before on this occasion. We arrived on time, had to wait for a table, then were given a tiny little table in a bad location. We loved our food but the night left us wondering what happened to the Bistro we used to love.

Food wonderful, atmosphere lovely and it all lends itself to a special evening had it not been for our server Carmen. She was the most unpleasant person I have ever encountered at one of our frequent establishments. It was my husbands birthday and there were 3 of us at the table. We all considered leaving after we ordered our drink because of CARMEN. She was overwhelmingly rude. We decided to stay only because we really love the food. The other servers were all very helpful and nice. I suggest you visit Bistro Vendome and ask to be seated at any table that Carmen does not serve. I am not sure we will go back after she left such a bad taste in our mouths.

Food was delicious. Got to sit outside in their beautiful gardens. We were seated right away but our server seemed distracted. I've been to this restaurant four times and the three previous times we received impeccable service. This time, we waited for everything. He seemed very upset when we did not initially order alcohol and after that he seemed to forget about us. We had to ask about the specials, ask for more water and iced tea, ask for the check (waited 20 minutes for this). Hostess, bus persons, etc were great but our server was very average.

Glad we found this place as we were from out of town and didn't have many options in terms of getting around. The courtyard provided a nice area away from the city streets and felt very relaxing. The food was excellent as was the service. Really enjoyed our experience and recommend it!

Nice place, food is OK, service not so nice for everybody totally unclear entrance. When approaching from terrace, one is bluntly send away! furthermore all items that we ordered went wrong! 2 in stead of one and vice versa totally disrupting the nice ambiance of the place. Please provide for more professional waiters

This has been and remains of our favorite places in town. Bistro Vendome is perfect for everything from a casual weeknight dinner to a romantic birthday. The menu changes often and is always superb.
a delightful dining experience!
Everything was spot on: service, food, and ambience. We got our favorite server and she made the dining experience extra pleasant because of her warmth and friendliness. All the rest of the wait staff were wonderful, too. We sat on the inside next to open doors to the patio -- truly lovely. All the food was absolutely delicious! This restaurant remains one our favorites here in Denver.
Flashback to France
While dining at Bistro Vendôme one can forget that they are not in France. This is the second time that we have dined at Bistro Vendôme. The first was a wonderful romantic evening. The second, we returned with well-traveled foodie friends. We were pleased that the experience not only met, but exceeded, our expectations. Everything was perfect and our server, Phil, was one of the best and most knowledgeable and professional we have encountered in the USA. We sat outdoors and were transported by the ambience, incredible food and great wines. The wine list had changed since our previous visit but did not disappoint and the food was fresh and fun. I am vegetarian but the rest of our party was not - we all thoroughly enjoyed everything that we ordered including the amazing desserts and espressos.

As always, the food was delicious, service impeccable and friendly. The brunch menu has a variety of choices suitable for foodies and traditionalists. The restaurant is tucked back from the street. It's charming and the patio is pleasant. Everyone in our party loved it.

This place is a little spendy, but ideal for a special night out with your SO or friends. They have a variety of protein entree options, which is great if you are a picky eater. Make sure you try a few ounces of their cheeses; they are good-sized and delicious.
Girl's night out with family before "Beauty and the Beast". The Steak Frites didn't disappoint. The only disappointment was one of our guest's entry was not put in so she had to wait for her dinner while we ate. We were given a dessert, that no one really wanted as we were full, to compensate when really her meal should have been comped. Put a little damper on the meal but we enjoyed the evening.

I asked for a juicy burger and it was marginal. Busy service that did the best they could. Seating was delayed and many guests without reservations sat before us. I will think twice before going back as there are many more places to try.
Authentic French in a casual, romantic setting
Great salad, wonderful trout, delicious desserts and good wine.
Amazing Brunch in the Garden
This is a wonderful restaurant for any meal but it's especially amazing for a Sunday brunch. Make sure you make reservations and ask to be seated in the garden. The food is wonderful and the garden is so amazing! You won't be disappointed!
Our waitress was fun and very nice!
The environment was beautiful and romantic. The food always came in perfect timing. (Not too soon, not too fast.)
We had a day o' birthday for my friend who turned 60 with a stop at Bistro Vendome in the middle for lunch. Everyone raved over their selection - I can speak for the Trout dish - delicate and light and perfectly seasoned. Carmen was our server and went well beyond our expectation - she really helped make our day special.
Our Anniversary dinner
Although we've never had a bad meal at Bistro Vendome, I must say that everyone was on their top of the game best ever last Friday night, gracious and welcoming, from the prompt recognition when we arrived for our reservation, to the attentive bartender at their zinc top bar (who made the perfect dry martini for my husband), to the patio dining experience. We've eaten les moules in many restaurants, but the Bistro makes them the best--just straight forward, redolent of white wine and butter properly served with crusty bread and a spoon to catch the soup. Some restaurants these days seem to think the simple flavors need to be spiced up with pepper flakes and tomato, but these remind me of the very first time I have them over 50 years ago at Mont St. Michele in France--simply delicious. Thanks to our waiter for being just right amount of attentive, giving us time to talk and savor every last bite of food.
Beautiful setting. Felt like I was back in France.
Beautiful setting. Felt like I was back in France at an intimate, romantic bistro. The food was outstanding. The service impeccable and attentive. Great for a couple's night out.

I almost didn't choose this place because of some negatives I found on Google, but it was great. We were seated promptly, service was fine and most of the food and wine superb. My only negative comment is French fries should not be sugary sweet. I was told most people like them that way, but I thought they were awful. I was also told you can order them to be savory instead. I'll do that next time. Would definitely go back. Oh, it's quite popular so I recommend making a reservation as we did.
Requested seating outside, were seated inside right next to the kitchen door. Reason for selecting BIstro Vendome was promoted Thursday Special - Cassoulet. They were out of it.
A Denver gem!
This is one of our very favorite restaurants in Denver. This is always a go-back for us. It is small, so not loud. The service and food is always superb!
Been before but so glad we revisited!
We haven't been to BV in a couple of years but revisited on Sunday evening with good friends. The food was outstanding and as our friend said "it's like visiting the Left Bank in Paris with no jet lag". Thats a pretty good description! It was delicious. We all had the trout and all of us ate every bite. The salads were so fresh and each was outstanding. Loved it so much that we just made another reservation to revisit when we can sit on their lovely patio (one of the best in Denver). Thank you to BV!

Wonderful all around!
We wanted a special evening out, and Bistro Vendome really delivered. Server was wonderful, cocktails well mixed, steak cooked perfectly. Nothing but great things to say about this place. Would HIGHLY recommend.

We are from out of town and have been able to come and eat at Vendome a couple of times a year for the past four years. Each time the meal had been superb and presents a value far in excess of the moderate menu pricing. Love the classic unpretentious nature of this bistro. Staff always knowledgeable and helpful with a wine pairing. Highly recommend.
