We have been to Bistro Eloise about a dozen times for Dinner and Brunch. The food is outstanding, Vincent, the owner is always cordial and would do anything to make our evening. A very nice place for a local restaurant.

We've been to Bistro Eloise before and have really enjoyed it and we were excited to see that they doubled their capacity with outdoor seating. The kitchen is small and the wait for food was really long +/- 30min from ordering. The menu was definitely reduced from the last time we were there which was a bit disappointing for Mother's Day. They were fairly busy but the Service was not good considering the number of servers for the space. There was no communication from the kitchen on the status of our food and our server forgot an item. We will be back but maybe on a less busy sunday.

The food was excellent! My fiancé and I got the French onion soup and the baked Brie to start and both were delicious - the baked Brie came with a refreshing salad as well. For entree we got the Octopus & Chorizo - wow, the best dish we’ve had in awhile.

For dessert we had chocolate mousse and Spiked cappuccino (ask for this because it’s not on the menu!) that was the perfect end to our date. The wait staff was also exceptional and super attentive. We cannot wait to go back and try more things on the menu!

Outdoor dining tent with individual heaters over each table so toasty warm. Basic table setup. Rained that day and tables near the entrance, floor was wet. French music gave it a more authentic ambiance. Overall 3.5 stars on atmosphere and environment. Could do a little nicer decor, the rain creeping in didn't help, but still comfortable set-up.

Food was excellent with one exception. We tried the escargots, beef bourguignon, and duck l'orange. The escargots were amazing and when the tasty snails were all gone, couldn't stop dipping the bread in the garlic butter. The duck was also excellent but unfortunately, the beef bourguignon was just ok. Was missing the carrots so visually all one color and dull. I also couldn't find any bacon and plate had more mash potatoes than stew. However, everything else was excellent and we finished on a high note with the creme brulee.

Plan to come back since had debated on a few other items on the menu. Couldn't order them all so will have to come back for a second visit to try.

I absolutely love the crepes and seafood dishes here! Service is always great! A hidden gem! The only thing I would complain about is consistency of drinks.. I ordered a champagne mojito and the first time it was absolutely amazing! The second, third and fourth time however.. it sucked.

What a delightful place! Bistro Eloise never fails in delivering a top-notch french flair menu, coupled with super customer oriented staff. It is such a pleasure not to be rushed through a meal, just like when you enjoy a good meal in France.
Merci !

The food here is excellent, as always. The service this visit was pretty bad. The restaurant seemed to be extremely understaffed on the Tuesday we visited. Stood outside for 20 minutes despite having a reservation. Requested outside seating and we were seated inside. The guy behind the bar was also the person seating patrons and taking orders. The super friendly maitre d from last time was nowhere in evidence.
for what it claims to be, Bistro Eloise needs to step up it's game. The saving grace is the superb kitchen. No complaints there.

Service was fine. Menu had great variety. Dishes ordered, lambchops and cassoulet, were generous and exactly what we wanted. Ambience was fine (oudoor dining) spacious, not too loud tho there were several diners. Being locked up pretty much for a year, ambience that's different from my apt doesnt have to be the Louvre. I prefer more comfortable w a horniness that tells me the owner knows this neighborhood and enjoys taking goid care of us

Bistro Eloise was a wonderful way to celebrate our return to indoor dining! The service was outstanding - prompt, but not rushed. Every staff member - host, waiter, and runner - was patient, attentive, and in good humor. My wife and I were able to enjoy a relaxing Saturday brunch in a full restaurant without having to shout across the table or without feeling like we were less important than other tables. The food was beyond delicious - we had a Croque Monsieur and the Crepe L'Orientele - and both were beyond expectation. We cannot wait to return to Bistro Eloise.

My favorite restaurant, since the day it opened. Elegant French cuisine in a casual atmosphere. Super-friendly staff and owner. "Neighborhood gem" is an understatement. Safe outdoor dining, due to its location at the inner corner of a strip mall, so only nearby traffic is within a parking lot at slow speed. Possible to dine modestly (sandwich or savory crepe or appetizer or weekend brunch with no "extras") or elaborately (several courses, plus cocktails, dessert, after-dinner drinks, etc. ) Just the best!

I really enjoyed this outing, my first indoor dining experience in over a year. The food was very tasty, the wine delicious, and the service unobtrusive and professional. My friend and I appreciated the plastic barriers between tables, as this isn't a big space.

Vincent the owner even came outside after we exited to make sure to say good night. It's the personal touch that sets a neighborhood bistro apart.
