We had a lovely dinner here on a Wednesday evening in May. The restaurant was quiet, the service attentive and professional (kudos to Lorena), and the food outstanding. Our steaks were of prime quality and cooked to perfection. The starters ( onion soup and endive...More

Cheval Bistro feels much like a bistro in France. They serve a variety of authentic french dishes. Among the dishes we tried: l'escargots, gougeres, coq au vin, and the crepes du jour. The Crepes were quite good although buried in a sauce that was about...More

I went here with a group of friends for Sunday Brunch and it was very nice. We tried several items on the menu, the big hit was the French toast. Only thing that bothered me was the smell of cleaning solution. Not sure if they...More

Aiming for typical French bistro in design and offerings, Cheval Bistro does nothing to distinguish itself from the competition. While some offerings (eg the crepes) were quite good, others were indifferent at best. We were a late seating, but service was subpar on several levels....More

This french bistro had a great menu, super service and well executed dishes. A number of the dishes were right out of Julia Child. The coq au vin was wonderful. This was a really pleasant dinner experience.

The Smith Brothers are great restaurateurs, but this attempt at a french bistro falls just shy of success, in our experience, due to the occasionally (but too often) cloying and yet inattentive service we've experienced there. Officious waiters are duly self-impressed by their assignment, but...More

We go here a lot for dinner and Sunday brunch. Definitely one of our favorites. They have some exceptional wait staff and the food is excellent.
