About Le Manhattan Bistro:

Le Manhattan Bistro is located in a century old building that used to be a bank, elegantly restored in the spirit of a French brasserie. Le Manhattan Bistro is more than a French restaurant. It’s authentic French food with a touch of Paris, a touch of New-York, and a lot of love… You will be welcomed in a warm and relaxed atmosphere. 

Le Manhattan Bistro Reviews: 

"I booked a special meal for a family gathering. We were all from out of town, so I relied on the website and phone chats with Jeanbaptiste. Food was delicious, service friendly/professional, fair prices and a fabulous celebration. I couldn't have been more pleased. If I lived in WB, I would visit this restaurant often! BTW $9 per glass is not expensive for a glass of house wine, and real French restaurants know how to pace a meal - relax and enjoy. These French folks know what they are doing! Merci beaucoup!"

"Last night we had dinner at LE MANHATTAN BISTRO, on our way from NY to Pittsburgh, we discovered this amazing restaurant. It has a wonderful classic french menu plus extras such as tuna tartar. We had escargot, house pate and bouillabaisse, all were excellent. We had a bottle of "very good for the price" Bordeaux. All this for less than $150 for two people, unbelievable!!! About a month ago we were in Paris, had lunch at Jules Verne, at the Eiffel Tower, the food at Le Manhattan Bistro is better, really!!! As a bonus, the wait staff was very nice, the atmosphere relaxed and friendly. The restaurant is in a very low key neighborhood, a little ran down but their building is a beautiful classic "beaux art" style, they have a relaxed well appointed bar. The place is squeaky clean. If you are in the area, it is probably the best choice to have a wonderful French meal in an unpretentious setting Loved it!!!"
