    I recently had the pleasure of dining at Bistro L'Hermitage, and I must say, it was an absolutely amazing experience from start to finish. The service at this restaurant is top-notch, truly deserving of five stars. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with warm smiles and a genuine eagerness to make our dining experience exceptional. The staff was attentive, knowledgeable, and went above and beyond to ensure that we had everything we needed. They were quick to address any questions or requests we had, and their professionalism and friendliness added to the overall ambiance of the restaurant. Now, let's talk about the food. Oh my goodness, where do I even begin? The culinary delights that Bistro L'Hermitage offers are nothing short of extraordinary. Each dish was expertly crafted with the finest ingredients and presented beautifully. The flavors were exquisite, with every bite bursting with a harmonious blend of tastes and textures. From the appetizers to the main course, and of course, the decadent desserts, every dish was a delight to the senses. What truly impressed me was the attention to detail and the passion that was evident in every aspect of the dining experience. The presentation of each dish was a work of art, and the flavors were perfectly balanced. The chefs at Bistro L'Hermitage have truly mastered their craft, and it shows in every dish they create. Overall, my experience at Bistro L'Hermitage was nothing short of exceptional. The combination of impeccable service and extraordinary food made for a truly memorable dining experience.

    We had a good first visit at Bistro L’Hermitage. Service was top notch. Bravo! The filet was a bit overcooked but the potatoes served with the filet were incredible, so that made up for it. The fries served with a chicken dish were sitting in the sauce which caused them to be quite soggy. Serving the fries in a vessel of some sort would be a nice change. The ambiance was nice and dark, private, but the physical restaurant needs some TLC. Dust sitting in the decorative Moulding of the walls, and don’t look up! The sconces hanging had dust and spider webs, and the air vents also were very dirty. A very through cleaning and this place would be on the top of our list to come back too. Worth a try once, for yourself.
