The food was good but service was incredibly slow. It took 2.5 hours to get through dinner and it wasn’t very crowded

Excellent price fixe menu, all delicious. The only complaint is that they took away some food a little too quickly, it was not busy so not sure why that happened. Otherwise highly recommended, we had a casual business lunch but perfect for all kinds of circumstances.

We went for restaurant week and the menu at Bistronomic did not disappoint. It featured a large menu with several firsts and salads - our group had a pate, a carrot veloute, and a beet salad - all very good and well-sized. For entree we had one mini lasagna and two duck breasts, one of which had to be cooked a little more to the diner's request. Again, all were very good, well sized for the meal. The desert choice of flourless chocolate cake or bread pudding were a tasty sweet end to the meal.

This place is whatever you want to make it. Meaning, you feel so comfortable with the environment, the people, the staff, you really can’t go wrong. My Salmon was perfect! Everyone else’s food (which I did taste )lol was exceptional. The octopus was the only dish that left me a little ehhh, but hey my tastebuds aren’t everyone else’s. Definitely a must try, if nothing else to at least say you’ve been there. You won’t regret it, I believe there is something for everyone. Bon appetite! Thank you Hannah!!! The hostess really makes you feel welcomed!!!

Seriously BLOWN AWAY by their food, I had the steak and eggs it was amazing. Service was also great, we did bottomless brunch and were constantly having our glasses touched up. I'm usually so picky with restaurants and especially with how crowded it was I couldn't be more impressed!

Busy little brunch place. Service was friendly but a little slow. Maybe because it's Restaurant Week. But the avocado toast needed more avocado. The drinks were top notch. Certain plates had more food than others. But cute little place.

I was excited to try this French bistro because the menu is appealing. However, the tables are crammed together with about 6-8 inches between tables. The tables have to be moved together to make enough room to get to your chair. I felt sorry for people who had tables next to the bar with people's backsides almost up against them. The noise level is pretty loud too. As for the food, it is actually pretty good, I had the steak frites which was perfectly cooked to order and the cherry bread pudding for dessert was delicious. But herding people like cattle in there is just not my style so unfortunately I will not return.

We went for Restaurant Week this past weekend, the restaurant was packed. Service was very slow, as they were clearly overwhelmed. We sat in the back room which was so hot it was crazy. The thermostat read 79 degrees and even the ladies at the next table in sleeveless dresses were complaining of the heat.
We were so excited to dine here after seeing the restaurant on Check Please, but were sadly disappointed. The service was crazy slow and the food was just ok. No one at our table was thrilled with the food. The salmon wasn't hot at all, although the texture and flavor were good, the temperature made it less appealing. The lentils were luke warm and lacked flavor. My husband had the duck and said it was "ok" From start to finished we all thought the experience was just...meh.

I come often because Bistronomic never disappoints. My favorite onion soup anywhere. It has cheese in it but it ether wonderful broth that has me coming back. The pates are delicious. They are my favorites. It is a comfortable place to spend time in as you sip a nice wine.

I absolutely LOVE Bistronomic - I have come here for Thanksgiving dinner for 2 years now, and have come for several dinners. The service is exceptional, and the hostess is absolutely wonderful and welcoming. The environment is cozy and inviting. The food is among the best in Chicago, and the cocktails are fantastic (unusually crafted too, I recommend the L'exotique, which is tequila with mango and jalapeno). I could not recommend Bistronomic enough, one of my favorite restaurants anywhere!

One of my favorite places in river north, feels like you’re stepping into a left bank French bistro. The food, cocktails, wine, ambience and service is always the best. Can’t wait to return

We had eaten at Bistronomic a couple of years ago and we were disappointed in the value for what we spent for the meal. In addition, we were seated close to the entrance to the restaurant which, considering the typical Chicago winter weather, was not a good place to be. This time I requested a table nowhere near the entrance! We were shown a table close to the bar, an acceptable location. It was early on a Sunday evening, so the place wasn’t crowded. I suspect if we had come a bit later, we might have been less comfortable. The tables are cited very close together. My two companions and I were very very happy with the wines and food we selected. Portions are generous and creatively prepared. Try their version of mussels!

Great bread, wine, food, atmosphere, and service. We rarely repeat restaurants because there are so many great restaurants in Chicago, but this deserve to be an exception. We will be back. Pre Fixe menu is a good deal. Even simple salads were superior.

The only disappointment was the Baked Alaska which was a bowl of vanilla ice with Carmel sauce and a square with meringue placed on top. NOT a real Baked Alaska!

My husband and I love this restaurant and make a point of eating there when we were are in Chicago. We've never been disappointed. The front of the house team is friendly and knowledgeable, and the chef and his team deliver exquisite, fresh flavors. I had the opportunity to introduce three of my good friends to this gem, and they are still raving about the experience.

Typically New Years Eve is a challenging time for the best of restaurants. Bistronomic found a way to provide their typically excellent food quality with a packed restaurant all night. From the front of the house to the kitchen I offer praise. Well done!

Food was fine but service was horrible. Took almost 20 min for the waiter to come to our table. When he did arrive he reaked of body odor. Just absolutely disgusting. Steak was overcooked but the rest of the food was delicious. The desert was so good. Overall though it was disappointing. Terrible service ruined the whole evening. Hostess was very nice though. Loved her.

Lovely place that transports you to the heart of Paris. It’s a small place so prepare for minimal but adequate privacy. The lady in the front is extremely welcoming and kicks off a wonderful evening. The gnocchi is amazing! Service is a little slower than traditional American places but on par with Parisian establishments.

Great last minute selection on the day after Christmas. Our server was very attentive and friendly, provided a very easy pace for our dinner, and recommended a very good bottle of wine that was reasonably priced. The food was excellent bistro fare. The room is nice, a bit busy at the front where we were placed. I would try to ask for the mid to back next time. The hostess was also very nice and stopped to ask how are meal was. I will return next time we are visiting Chicago. The location was very convenient to several of the better hotels off of the Magnificent Mile which is a plus.
