This was our the first time at this particular restaurant for brunch. Overall the atmosphere and service was great. My appetizer and main course were okay nothing of these courses stood out. I did particularly enjoy my bloody Mary cocktail and the dessert was outstanding. We will return to try out for dinner.

Don't believe fixed price brunch worth the advertised price, but good value based on Groupon cost.

The eggs were either too soft (raw) or too hard (hard broiled) ;( It was one dessert per couple, which was a little odd expecially during this time of the flu and cold season. I will say the onion soup was amazing and the staff is very attendent.

“Pascal, these are all the good times I had in my life.” According to Chicago magazine, these were the words spoken to Bistro Bordeaux owner Pascal Berthoumieux by his grandfather as he inherited his grandfather’s collection of decades-old wine labels. A native of the bistro's namesake region, Berthoumieux has gone out of his way to create a dining experience similar to one you'd have in the south of France—with a wine list that lets guests rack up their own good times. He's decorated the yellow walls with vintage posters and family antiques, and his team of attentive waiters wears black vests, bow ties, and long white aprons designed to protect them from flying escargot shells. Executive Chef Michael Gottli uses seasonal ingredients from local farmers and merchants to craft classic French dishes, which made the bistro a Time Out Chicago critics' pick. They lauded the “ideal” french-onion soup and "the juicy seared flatiron Sirloin steak served with truly addictive frites."

Aside from drawing from his wealth of family traditions, Berthoumieux built his restaurant on a foundation of hard work. He's hung his hat at such eateries as Man Ray, a Parisian eatery formerly owned by celebrities including Johnny Depp and Sean Penn, and Chicago's own Tip Top Tap lounge and Kiki's Bistro. His years of experience served him well when creating Bistro Bordeaux; among other awards, the establishment was named one of Chicago magazine's Best New Restaurants in 2010.
