Food was amazing. Our server, Nate, though was exceptional with pacing our meal and not making us feel rushed so we could enjoy our anniversary dinner. We will be back!

We have not been to Bistro VG for a couple of years and my wife and I decided that is was time to put it back in our rotation of restaurants we like to dine at on a more frequent basis. Unfortunately after our dinner last night we will be taking this back out of it. Once we say it took about 10 minutes for us to get any like of service. We finally got our water and drink order. Our appetizer of cheeses and meats were very good but it went a little downhill from there. My wife ordered the steak frites with Parmesan fries. The steak she said was good but the fries had no Parmesan remotely on them and the fries were also under cooked. Even the manager who was very nice and walking around to make sure everyone’s dining experience was up to par actually even pointed that back out to us after a quick table visit. My short ribs and spicy Mac and cheese was only OK. The short ribs are good but the spicy Mac and cheese was macaroni marinating in a cheese water sauce. I have ordered this dish every time we have gone there and this was a very different version of that dish. I hope that Bistro VG in the future plans on going back to whatever versions they have done in the past as it was one of our favorite restaurants in the greater Atlanta area.

Food went way down hill from previous visits. Brought wrong food to one person at table and it took about 10 minutes to get checked on so we could tell them so everything else was cold before it was corrected. Very disappointed especially because it used to be one of my to go spots.

Bistro VG is one of, if not the, best restaurant in the area. Servers Terry & Louise and GM Bill are wonderful. We feel welcomed and have an excellent meal every time we go. Love the artisan cheeses and wine, especially. Can't do better than this.

Had a Pre-Valentine’s Day dinner...scallops were terrific...done just the way I like them. Service was excellent. Rest of our dinner was great. Never had a bad meal here.
And it’s the prettiest bar and restaurant in Roswell. Away from the hustle and bustle of Canton Street, low-key, but always welcoming.
A favorite dinner and drinks place for years.

Our waiter, Terry, is outstanding. Really nice person, just the right service touch with warmth and knowledge. Owner is really nice too, they work hard. Having been a VG fan prior to the sale, we tend to compare current experiences to the past so we can be a bit subjective but we’ll be back!

Very nice restaurant with great food and ambience. We've dined here many times through the years, but this week the service was extremely slow and inconsistent. Noise level seemed very high as well. Perhaps we'll try again to see if it improves to previous levels.

I’ve been here before and everything was great. Not so sure anymore after tonight. First off, service by John was spot on, but the food was not up to par from my last visit a year ago. The boulebase was VERY spicy. I thought I was at a Thai restaurant. Burnt toast, aka crostini, served with the meal. Shell pieces in the roasted oysters that were overwhelming seasoned with prosciutto. Overall, it’s not a bad place but I won’t be back anytime soon. Too many better options in the area.

Worse experience in a long time. We’ve been several times but this was the last. Waitress was there and gone in a second. Took forever to get bread and butter. Brought enough butter for one person there were four of us. Food took forever to come out. They never picked up our used plates, I had to keep stacking them up. Food was awful. Nothing had any taste at all. Tuna tar tar was made like tuna salad with onions etc. Pike fish was completely tasteless. Had to ask for salt and pepper and they just brought salt. No sauce, nothing on it just fish. Cauliflower au gratin the same, no cheese and tasteless . We kept trying to get our waitress but she would fly by and ignore us. Finally, I went to the kitchen and got someone else. We’ve never eaten anywhere where the food wasn’t seasoned at all or cooked like it was suppose to be. The manager did come over to apologize and took some money off our bill but our dinner out was ruined and we left starving.

We went on a Sunday night around 7:30 they were out of half out the food items on menu. Wait staff wasn’t sure if cocktail was available that we ordered. We ordered the wine instead and they have never heard of the wine we ordered by the glass. (Weird Only a few options available ) we ended up ordering the margarita pizzas. Which ended up being two cheese pizza with a ton of garlic and black pepper. No basil, no tomato, no red pepper as described. they brought out the worst cheese pizzas I have ever had. I did not eat mine due to the black pepper and garlic that was so overwhelming it burned my taste buds after one bite. This place used to be great. Obviously management is not on top of kitchen. Did not complain. We made a decision not to come back.

Responded on January 23, 2020

We are truly sorry about your experience. I know we had some distribution issues that caused us to not have some food items on the menu for service that night, and that by no way should be something you had to deal with. There is not enough room allocated for my response to really handle this, but i would be grateful if you reached out at the restaurant, as I would like to discuss making this right. This place still is great, and I can only hope you will give the opportunity to show you that!

We are truly sorry that we were sold out of those 2 entrees so early in the day. When dealing with serving all fresh items, very rarely we end up selling too much of a couple of particular items. Unfortunately, that day was when you joined us, an e are truly sorry for that. We can only hope that the entree ordered by your guest instead was great!

The soup was not good at all. Two of them were returned. It was the Georgia onion. The pork chop was burned and they replaced it with the bouillabaisse. However there was very little broth. The manager asked what kind of bowl it was in. As if that mattered. He did not apologize nor comp anything but the returned soups. We asked for more bread but never received it. The replaces bouillabaisse took a very long time. Totally unacceptable for a replacement dinner.

The service was incredibly slow for a lunchtime reservation. Took over a hour to for our entree salads to be served. We were very rushed to eat and leave. We were at the restaurant for almost 2 hours. The lettuce was yellow but the flavor was good. The birthday dessert presentation was fantastic.

We certainly will keep a closer eye and make adjustments where needed to ensure this does not happen in the future. Lunch needs to always be quick and effective. We are sorry for taking so much time out of day during lunch, but thank you for bringing to our attention.

The ambiance is amazing from the moment you walk in. We. We’re greater in a pleasant manner and quickly seated. The server was great at first asking for our drink orders. It took some time for the drinks to come. We then ordered our entrees. While waiting for our entrees the server didn’t check on us for drink orders. After our food was delivered and we were 1/4 way trough she came to quickly check on us. She took one drink order and started to walk away. I asked her to come back because another person in our party wanted the wine list. Our drinks cane when we were almost finished eating. All of the food was amazing - salmon, short ribs, steak frites cooked to perfection. The servers lack of attention changed our experience. I was bummed about that as I was signing for a bill of $200.
