The original Le Jardin Bistro, was known for its welcoming and comfortable atmosphere accompanied by well-priced renditions of traditional dishes. It received a glowing review from The New York Times in 1995, recognized as serving “cuisine bourgeois that tastes as good as simple French food does on a first trip to France.”
The new location of Le Jardin Bistro Draws inspiration from French tradition, with a menu that is devoted to the celebration of classic flavors.
Divided between two floors, the bistro boasts a stately and inviting oyster bar, dining room and small patio on the first floor. A busy open kitchen sets the tone for a lively second floor, made up of an additional dining room and namesake, candlelit “jardin” seating open year-round. With seating for 100, the space is fashioned with antique mirrors, vintage art and a wood burning fire place, embodying a casual sophistication.

Now, of course there are tables, but, I actually recommend sitting at the bar. At one end, there's a raw oyster bar, and scattered throughout you'll find romantically wax-drip coated bottles. The menu sounded great, and I couldn't just decide on one thing. So, I got two starters that stood out to me instead. The first thing that I ordered was Hamachi Crudo, smoked tomato ponzu, yuzu kosho, garlic chips and peppercress.

One of the best meals I have had. The food was delicious and the wine was awesome and inexpensive. The ambiance was also really cool, they have made much better use of the space than Porch did when it was located there. The staff was attentive and really nice. The executive chef is also really nice and came out to made sure we were enjoying everything. I would highly recommend dinning here.


Great food! Everything was delicious, and elegant. Not to expensive, a great place to hang out. The Chef is amazing! Definitely a place someone should go to eat. All of the staff was very nice also.
