We had a reservation we were seated at 7:30 and weren't greeted by server until we asked the bus boy if he can get our server for us that was at 7:49, our waiter was uneducated in the menu and wine menu and took forever to get our drinks to us. My husbands food was undercooked from his request and I we waited for the waiter my food got cold no waiter to be found so I actually had to go search for a manager and she was fabulous took care of everything.

Great food, but noisy

Dined on April 16, 2016

Our party arrived on time for our reservation and was seated immediately. The server was attentive, if a little slow. The food was superb. The filet mignon was beautifully seasoned and cooked precisely. The halibut special was terrific. Sadly, conversation was difficult because the noise level.

Wunnerful surprise

Waitstaff & management were exceptional!! We loved the soup of the night -cauliflower purée something or other-delish!! Lamb chops were tasty. Mercedes makes the best titos martini in the county. It was overall a very memorable & satisfying experience. Nuf said

Good experience but how to cook?

Dined on April 3, 2016

My last visit was long time ago and this time I noticed some changes, which is OK. We had pork chop and were asked how to cook. Medium was our choice per the suggestion, but it was a little bit over cook for medium. I understand it might be because of pork.

Dined on March 16, 2016

We were celebrating a special birthday for my wife. I cannot think of any item that was not perfect. Recognition of the occasion and service were impeccable. Wine list was good and at good price points. Chef's menu, presentation and quality excellent. All was excellent and we will be back soon. Thanks to all at VG Bistro.

Bistro does it again -forget Little Alley Steak

Dined on March 13, 2016

Bistro VG is one of our favorite spots in Atlanta. The food is consistently good, with a range of variety in their specials. It is always a good value, and is very competitive with 'downtown' Roswell, without the parking hassles and the inflated prices for being part of that scene. For instance the beef at Bistro VG is of better taste and quality than Little Alley. (Note: after five visits there, with declining quality in each visit, we are never going there again. Try the white bean soup, short ribs, scallops and the crab cake. The salmon with the quinoa bed is exquisite. And the wine list is very fairly reasonable with a mark up of about 3 times retail - not great, but not super out of line. Some bottles are less than that - like the Stoller Pinot which is about 2 times retail.

Dined on March 12, 2016

I have not been to this restaurant in over 15 years....since it was VanGohs! I moved back to the area 3 years ago, and always end up driving in-town to go out for a nice dinner in a great room full of ambiance. Recently, my husband suggested we go to Bistro VG, and I was hesitant. However, I made a reservation and I'm so thrilled that I did! The new (to me) remodeling is absolutely gorgeous! It is stunning inside, and the food was magnificent. The pricing was very fair. The wine list was perfect with a ride range of price points. We had one of the best meals we have had in a long time, and are so thrilled that we can almost walk there! We will be regulars!

Child's Portion on an Adult Plate!

vip
Dined on March 10, 2016

Three out of four of us enjoyed our recent dinner. My husband, however, was served a ridiculously small portion of salmon as an entree - maybe four bites in all. We mentioned this to the manager who came around to the table, but she dismissed it with a laugh even though I told her that I had shared my own meal with my husband so he would have something to eat. I have been eating at this establishment for 25 years and have always enjoyed it. It's amazing how one bad experience can color one's opinion, and my husband does not want to return. I think a more attentive and caring attitude from the manager might have made a difference.

Disappointed in the meal

Dined on March 7, 2016

Atmosphere and service were good. Food was so so at best. Not really what I expected for $100.00. I heard good things but maybe we caught them on a night where the chef was off his game.

Food triumphs over the horrible noise!

Dined on March 6, 2016

We love Bistro VG, but when we sat down on Saturday, our first instinct was to run! The noise level was unbearable, but we knew the food would be great (and it was), but it was not a pleasant atmosphere. There are ways to make a room with high ceilings less noisy, and I wish the owners of Bistro VG would figure that out. We still plan to frequent the restaurant, but not on a weekend again.

Dined on March 2, 2016

Thanks for hosting our company celebration, making it super easy to make a reservation for 10, holding our table and getting us the best wait staff ever. Only problem was the noise level, not the fault of the restaurant, but the acoustics were horrible and a big group could not really hear anything outside the person next to you. Food was wonderful. Selection amazing, wine list unsurpassed. Everything was just super.

Dined on February 29, 2016

The food is always good here. We actually brought our 8 & 10 year old sons...they behaved perfectly as they have enjoyed fine dining on many occasions. They loved the fancy sparkling lemonade, the artisan bread, flat bread pizzas and not to mention the amazing calamari! The service was good tonight, but not as good as normal. We were a party of 7 and there was a large party in the back of 25-30 people, which made it louder than normal. The filet was cooked to perfection, trout, salmon and the liver were loved by our group.

Fantastic overall experience. The food, wine and mixed drinks were fantastic. The service was not at the level we have come to expect for this restaurant. Our server was not very knowledgeable of the wine list or main menu/ingredients. However, the manager was superb and even was able to recommend an excellent restaurant in DC to one of our table.

Eating Pleasure

Dined on February 27, 2016

We were very impressed with this Bistro. Food was excellent and we did not feel rushed through the meal. I had filet mignon and my husband had salmon - both beautifully plated. We topped the meal off with the signature beignets - perfect finish to a perfect meal. Our server was energetic and personable. Would definitely return for another dining experience.

We have been going to Bistro VG for years and have always enjoyed the food, service, and ambiance. We went several months ago and the food was not up to par. Last Friday, the food was just awful. The truffle fries were overcooked, the pizza was so so, and my husband said it was the worst lamb shank he has ever eaten. We will not be returning.

pretty ambience, food++

Dined on February 14, 2016

A very pretty restaurant with a nice mix of traditional & modern. We've been there a number of times, went again for Valentine's, got a lobster bisque which was great. Oysters were not very hot. They had removed the white bean soup, my favorite item, from the menu for Valentine's. ??? Lamb rack was good as was the filet & potatoes. I'd prefer the wait staff not interrupt us but return momentarily if they see us talking, instead they just interrupted multiple times so they could complete what they had to do & move on. Wine list is pretty good, prices not bad.
