Le Bistro (Incline Village) Ratings and Reviews

I have been coming to Le Bistro since the late 1990's and enjoyed every meal. Just learned that Le Bistro is closing on Oct 15 after 25 years. The current owners - a wonderful couple - are retiring and were unable to find suitable buyers. Please - do not retire until you find someone to take over. We will truly miss this wonderful restaurant if it does close. We already made reservations for the last day, Oct 15th. My wife and I, along with our friends, are hoping this is not our last meal at Le Bistro.

I left a detailed message and was sure that a candle would be placed in a dessert. Nothing was said or done.
As we were leaving I told the owner /manager that I left a lengthy message. No one checked messages .
Staff pays more attention to locals who frequent this restaurant
This was a special birthday for my husband and the message I left wasn't acknowledged.

We had a very enjoyable dinner at Le Bistro in Incline. I'd totally recommend this restaurant. The waiter was delightful. One member of our group was a strict vegetarian and they completely accomidated her diet. Nice wine list, good energy, and ambiance.

French tasting menu only, excellent from start to finish, not inexpensive at $58 a plate however not a bad value for the excellent food. My daughter loved her beef, my lamb was perfect, as was my wife's seafood. Old school small place, been there 25yrs (guessing no remodel ever, but has a charm to it), tucked in back of a strip mall. Sounds funky but if you like French food, give it a shot.

This place is hard to find, but worth the search! Glad for this fact because it is hard to get a table in this amazingly romantic, cozy and quaint French restaurant. The food is crafted in true French style and their wine list is comprehensive. The chef is the real deal and the authenticity of the food is the proof. Do not miss it!

First,Tahoe is generally a foodie desert. Le Bistro is above average thank goodness. The food is beautifully presented, but lacking inspiration. It is technically well executed, but lacking in poetry.
The cheese plate was simply boring. A wedge each of brie, cheddar and blue. Very continental dining 1975.
BEST PLACE IN TAHOE
Great restaurant, great food and great service. We celebrate our wedding anniversary at Le Bistro every year and find others that do the same. While we were there, one couple with 47 years, we had 46 years and another young couple celebrated 1 year.
Another great experience at Le Bistro
We have dined at Le Bistro on several occasions when we have traveled to the Lake Tahoe area. Our 10 yr old son even enjoys the experience. The food is always outstanding. It is a prix fixe menu and the value is great. You get soup, appetizer, salad, entree and dessert or cheese plate for $58. I would never have expected to find such a fine dining experience where Le Bistro is located. Dave has been our server there the past 3 times that we have dined there. He is very friendly and makes our son feel welcome. He even took him outside to try to find the neighborhood bear. We can't wait to go back!!
Little gem in Incline village
We have dined here 2x in last three months. The quality of the food on this prix fixe menu is wonderful. Preparations are creative and delicious. Highly recommend the wine pairings with the menu. Wines are matched well and very fairly priced. Service is professional .
Great authentic Feench Fine Dining
You would not believe from the outside that Le bistro conceals a first class authentic French haute cuisine experience. Service is friendly, food is excellent and quantities spot on. This is now a must do dinner spot for us in Incline.

Delicious salmon pastrami. Also loved loved the fish. Beautiful and exciting blend of flavors that delighted our mouths! And the staff were so kind and knew how to make children feel welcome. Our new Tahoe fave that we plan to visit time and time again.
Elegant dining in the mountains
Beautifully executed dishes that are a feast for the eyes as well as the palette. Every dish a delight, from the soup, to the original salads and main courses. The desserts all just wonderful. Tucked away across the street from the Hyatt at Incline, it is a destination restaurant not to be missed.
My wife and i went there for Valentine dinner
We had a wonderful experience with great food and drink. it was expensive but what we expected to pay for such a dining experience. The service was impeccable and the restaurant quiet and warm. We will certainly return to celebrate a special occasion.
Always an enjoyable dinner!
Every time we head up to Tahoe, we make it a point to have dinner here. This time, in celebration of a birthday! As always, food was amazing and everyone loved their dishes. For a generous 5-course meal at a very reasonable price, you just can't go wrong! We love dining here and most certainly will be back soon (especially since it's snowing lots this year!)
This was the first time is several years, after yearly visits this time of year. Found that the qualtiy and service continue to excel. The food and ambience are superlative, and the staff are very helpful. Would urge anyone who could to go to this restaurant
First off, I love french food.
So this review is difficult for me, because I thought the quality of food at Le Bistro was on par with a catering company that has to serve a thousand people at once. I didn't feel the meal was created for me, but rather mass produced. I didn't think the flavors blended well. I felt they were trying to do too much instead of really specializing in less. The first course tasted artificial. Like something you would get on an airplane. The duck liver had no taste and it was served with pickles. Didn't understand this pairing.
The atmosphere was super noisey. Not relaxing. I sat at the bar and I couldn't even put my knees in front of me, because of the way the bar was designed. It was almost as if it was a last thought of the builder that someone might sit there and eat. It also felt that they were trying to fit as many tables and chairs in the place as possible. In fact, I was asked to move twice so someone could get behind me.
Then to top off my experience.. Two of the servers started swearing at each other and calling one another names, like they were in grade school. I wasn't offered any sort of compensation from my waitress. She basically said, oh well. I do want to add that the owner called me later that night and apologized and told me if I came back that he would show me how good his food really is. And I appreciate that, a lot. Maybe they were just having a bad night. Maybe my expectations for French food are too high, because of where I come from. I don't know what happened, but I do know that I won't ever go back.

We arrived 5 minutes early and that seemed to annoy one of the owners. She placed us at a 2 top along the glass which was too cold so we asked to move.
The food itself was quite good but the salad was just ok. The soup and elk were both wonderful. We each had 2 glasses of wine and it was $200 total so be prepared when you walk in.
A holiday party of 25 impacted our dinner
I have to first say that a holiday party of 25 nearby was obnoxious and ruined the evening.
That said, the prix fixe said $56 per person. Didn't sound to bad for 5 courses. However for my two sons they were having trouble finding options and ended up opting for items that had additional charges of $4+ each course upcharges. The portions were very small for each course. The desert was bountiful though. So for a party of 4. Two bottles of wine totalling $130, the bill was over $400 before tip. Way more than the over top dinner the night before at the Lone Eagle. We really enjoyed several courses, but were disappointed by others. I originally thought the prix fixe menu might be nice, but it ended up with my family spending way more and choosing some courses that they really didn't enjoy...giving them an overall experience that was not over the top. Had they just ordered the specific items and courses that interested them, they probably would have had a better experience. It was also 80 degrees in there. During December. The servers were very friendly and were trying to make light of the obnoxious table that was disturbing the rest of the restaurant.
Whenever we want to celebrate a special occasion or entertain out of town guests we come to Le Bistro. A hidden gem that has been around for 20 plus years. The food is always superb, the service is always excellent and they have a wonderful wine list too.
You would be hard pressed to find such a place in the Bay Area that can match the quality of the food/ambiance/service for such a reasonable price. It just can't be done.
Will will always come back to Le Bistro!

By far our best meal while on vacation in Incline Village. Enjoyed the tasting menu with wine pairing at a very reasonable cost. Service was attentive and hospitable. Tucked away in a strange shopping plaza, but worth seeking out. Go and enjoy!
