What's included

  • Two diners can take a seat on the patio or cozy up to the bar and share a platter of a dozen Blue Point oysters, served with a garlicky mignonette and cocktail sauce. While sampling the oysters, each patron can sip any glass of wine (up to $13 each) from Bistro Voltaire's list of all-French selections.
  • Those who aren't fans of shellfish can swap the oysters for a charcuterie or cheese plate, featuring gourmet meats and French fromage.

The food was wonderful and the staff warm, friendly and very helpful.

I explained my preference in wine (sweet) and the server suggested a wine combination that was just right. There was a limited special menu, but we ordered dishes off the regular menu with a slight upcharge. Without the TravelZoo voucher, I think it would be too expensive for our budget. I'm sure it's in line with other fine dining spots in the city, though.

Food and atmosphere. Service is outstanding.

One of our favorite neighborhood gems!

Very friendly and accommodating waiter. Also, atmosphere including music is lovely. Food was very good. Only thing is my husband ordered his steak well-done and it was not well-done. That was the only negative.

The food was very good and thew coziness of the restaurant itself. Small but it is not a hindrance as people you sit very close to seem to be personable and nice to talk to. Hard to have your own quiet conversation but no one seems to mind.
