The atmosphere of Bistro Bardot is romantic and cozy, an ideal place for an anniversary dinner or a quiet birthday celebration. Try to overlook the fact that it is in a large shopping mall. Once inside the restaurant, you will feel the intimacy and quiet of the place. The French cuisine is authentic and of the utmost quality, elegantly served. Like real bistros, the menu is somewhat limited and changes daily. Examples of entrees include beef bourguignon, duck, steamed clams with garlic and white wine sauce, and light butterfly pasta with porcini mushrooms. Critics praise the crème brulée with orange sauce.
