Very good. It was extremely quiet in the restaurant, which did make it seem slightly stuffy. There was a disconnect with our entrees and one had to be remade. But the restaurant took out wine and dessert off the bill, which was greatly appreciated. Will return and would recommend.

Everything was as I expected but our server was very slow getting our cocktails & before she brought them she asked if we were ready to order. The RobRoy with dry Vermouth was made by mistake with sweet Vermouth. It took even longer to get my husband the correct drink. We were in the table near the bar without our correct drink. The rest of the service was ok not great. Very disappointing for our 48th anniversary.

Bistro VG
Responded on November 27, 2019

We are truly sorry your experience was anything other than excellent, especially on such a special occasion. i can assure you that this is not the norm. I know we can't bring the night back, but i would be grateful if you forwarded me your address. I would like to send you a gift card to use on your next visit in hopes it restores your confidence in us. I hope to hear back from you soon.

Nice interior and ambiance. Food was delicious, but we ordered bread pudding (that we saw at the beginning and had our hearts set on) but never got it. Our waiter brought us a chocolate torte for an anniversary celebration and apologized that it said "Happy Birthday" on the side cookie. (He also delivered one to the table beside us so we figured it was complimentary.) We did not mention the bread pudding and left only to find out that we were charged for it on our receipt. Paid for a good looking dessert that we never got to taste. 😕 Other than that, and asking for a table other than the first one on the main walkway, it was a great experience.

Bistro VG
Responded on November 27, 2019

We are happy your overall experience was great. We apologize for the mix up with the desserts, and certainly the bill payment. Please let me know of your next visit personally, as we would like to offer you complimentary dessert. My name is Nicholas, and I hope you have a great thanksgiving!

The service was excellent and the ambience is cozy and inviting. However, I was quite disappointed in the food: My husband paid $47 for an a la carte ribeye that was tough and seemed to have been flavored with A McCormick’s seasoned salt. It was shameful really. I’m not sure I will be back.

Bistro VG
Responded on November 12, 2019

We are happy you enjoyed the service and ambiance. We are very proud of the locally sourced cuts of meat we are serving, and i can assure you this is not the norm. Not sure what may have caused the the lack of flavor or the toughness in a cut like our ribeye. I can only hope you will give us the opportunity to serve another piece of steak on us to enjoy the proper way. Please let me know of your next visit personally. My name is Nicholas.

Terrible service - cocky, green server with no polish... didn’t know menu or specials but tried to fake it. Kept leaning on our table with both hands, with leg shaking...which shook our table every time he talked to us. Server was snarky and rude, asking about my ethnicity and volunteering information we didn’t ask for about his own ethnicity. When my wife and sister ordered drinks and I ordered water he sarcastically said, “one water coming right up”. He talked about this 1975 mustache within 30 seconds of his greet (I guess he was proud of it). Drinks were not good..but they charged us for the one we returned (it was awful... wife got wine instead...sister in law didn’t order another one). When we were choosing entrees he turned to a table that was eating something my sister was considering...”what do you think about the sole?”... Why would he bother another table? When he cleared my plate he was apparently carrying a dish from another table as he asked me if I was finished...so he put the dish from the other table on top of my plate in front of me then grabbed both (so I had to look at the dish from another table). We asked to see a manager because we couldn’t believe how rude and arrogant the server was. Manager listened politely but did nothing. We asked for dessert menu but server began to recite desserts...said “the crepes have blueberry...or is it fig?...I dunno... i think it’s blueberry”. My sister asked, “can you please bring the menus? We like to read them”...he whined, “but I like to verbalize them”...the whole time our table was shaking from his leg. I lost it. “Dude what is wrong with your leg? We just asked you for a menu. Please go get menus”. I was livid. The manager was full of apologies and was very nice, but he did nothing about it. My wife and I have been going to VG since 2007 (12 years). We used to be regulars. We’ll never go back. Our table was near the host stand. We could hear him hitting on the poor hostess who had to endure him. Awful.

Not sure how to response to your experience other than I am sorry and I can assure you that this is not the norm. This behavior is unacceptable. I can only hope that you take it at my word when I say that, and I want you know that it has been fixed. Fortunately you brought it to our attention, but unfortunately at your expense. I would like to personally invite you back to the bistro as my guest to enjoy the restaurant as you have in the past. I hope to hear back from you. My name is Nicholas.

Cocktails were good, very generous portion of the Rabbit Pate and the salad was good as well. Service was very good and a very good wine list (a little disappointed they didn't know which of the Rose wines were mostly grenache). Spouse had the scallops, four large on a bed of risotto, well prepared. I had the bouillabaisse which I would not recommend. Very small portions, only one small piece of fish, four shrimp, a few mussels (two or which had not opened and had to send them back) and a few clams. I've eaten in many french restaurants and bouillabaisse is my go to. Unfortunately, they didn't measure up.

Bistro VG
Responded on November 13, 2019

Thank you for your comments, and we sorry for the lack of knowledge on the wine list from our team and we will be sure to update our training. The bouillabaisse has gone through some stages, and because of your comments, I can assure you it will measure up. For that, I thank you for bringing it to our attention. I would also be thankful if you return to the restaurant to enjoy that dish with my compliments to see what you think. My name is Nicholas and please let me know of your next visit!

Everything was excellent. We went on a Sunday evening. It was quiet. The service was attentive without being bothersome. Good wine list, with some unusual items( only US restaurant we have been to that has cremant). Good wedge salad, the bread was fresh and tasty. My steak perfect. My wife loves the mussels appetizer that she had for her entree. We will definitely be back. It’s expensive, but worth it.
