I dined at Le Berry Bistro and must say the food was great and the prices are reasonable. We started with an appetizer, shrimp was one and baked goat cheese was the other, and they both were delicious. We also had a bottle of wine, I must say they have a great selection. Our server was friendly and polite and tended to our every needs. The soup was cream of chicken with rice, which was incredible, and the salads were fresh and tasty. I had the Fillet stuffed with cheese and it was so tender I could cut it with a fork, and my wife had the chicken dinner and she loved the mushrooms, tomatoes, and marsala sauce, and the chicken was tender and delicious. One thing I must say it the decor needs to be updated, but over all I would give our an experience 4 stars out of 4. I have been here for Sunday brunch and lunch also, and I would definitely come back again.

Pros: Great Food and Service will definately return again

Cons: Interior is a bit dated could use some updating

This was not a pleasant dining experience.

The dressings for the salad were quite good with a mixture of iceberg and romaine lettuce.

I had a cup of the french onion soup which was very good and not over seasoned.

The $25 steak au poivre was awful. It had a lot of gristle, was very tough for medium rare, and the meat itself lacked flavor but was covered in bordelaise sauce. This was the result of two things: the quality of meat was very poor and the chef preparing the New York Strip paid no attention to the obvious pieces of edge fat and gristle that required trimming.

My wife's chicken was very bad mainly because it lacked flavor. The chicken was not under seasoned, but in fact had no seasoning and the sauce did not have much flavor to it either.

The service was very poor, as the waitress did not visit our table or refill our drinks during the entire main course as she did not even enter the dining room during that entire time for our table or the other table. It was rather aggravating that she added an 18% gratuity to my bill. The gratuity was not suggested, but actually part of the bill. The restaurant was not busy either. We arrived on a Friday night around 8:00. There was only the one waitress working. For half of our meal, we were the only people eating in the restaurant. To say this restaurant is struggling would seem a gross understatement.

The Bailey's chocolate cake and raspberry cheesecake were quite good and a welcome ending to the meal.

Given the price ($13-$30), you might expect a fancy atmosphere or superior service, but we observed neither. For instance, the walls were rather poorly painted with faux bricks here and there, the carpet showed it's age, and one wall had a large mirror bordered by green rope light. A couple fake plants also had white Christmas lights.

I will not be going back and would not suggest it to anyone else either. The discount using a $25 certificate did not come close to making up for the poor quality.

Pros: Varied menu, no need for reservations

Cons: Ambience, service, food, value, pricy wine

.

i guess when u compare it to nearby chez francois (which is now closed *tear*), it pales in comparison. the service is EXCELLENT though, i must say that and their wines are great. food is ok, im sure there are better french restaurants out there.
