" I wanted to try something new for dinner, and Bistro Eloise was my pick. I haven't found a good French restaurant in Elmhurst (or East Elmhurst), so I was skeptical in trying it out. It is conveniently located next to Cannelle bakery and in a large parking lot, so parking is not an issue. The decor is welcoming and the hostess is quite friendly and helpful. Everyone checks to make sure things are OK, and they do keep attention to your water glass.
The food is very tasty. I had the escargot and it was tender. The puff pastry mixes well with the tomato sauce that the escargot is cooked in. The brie melted in puff pastry and salad was good, but I may try another appetizer next time. My main course was the pasta with mushrooms and the flavor hit all the right taste buds. I also had a taste of the pasta with the mussels and shrimp and it had a nice, creamy white sauce that tasted like seafood broth. Everything went down easy and the chocolate mousse and lemon tart desserts were a nice way to end the meal. Overall I found this little gem to be someplace I can go back to try something new. I still like my escargot baked in garlic butter and cilantro, but the taste Bistro Eloise gives is a great alternative. You will leave full and happy, just leave room for dessert.
" Staff was really friendly. The new restaurant looks very cozy and the food was GREAT! Everything had tasted so well and I cannot wait to try their dinner menu.
" Great new French restaurant in Queens! I came to Bistro Eloise with my family for a birthday dinner and we could not have had a better time. The service was wonderful, the food perfection, and the ambience was magical. Everything was perfect down to the details. We enjoyed all of our food (we split the salmon tartare, tomato/prosciutto/mozzarella salad, and baked Brie for appetizers, and most of us got the duck for the main course). We also tried all 3 desserts, which were excellent (chocolate mousse, lemon tart, and creme brûlée - my favorite). We will definitely be returning to Bistro Eloise soon!
" New to Jackson Heights. Have tried the other locations for this restauranteur. This one is Intimate and the food good and reasonably priced with a limited wine selection, but good. We had Salmon on wild rice bed and mussels and fries. Good coffee and lemon tart. Good service and acceptable noise levels. Reservations are a must. "

" What a wonderful addition to our community. The food was deliciously prepared, the service was friendly and helpful and there were very interesting and varied choices to choose from. I would definitely return. Lots of parking. "
" I'm so excited that a French restaurant is now in the neighborhood! Not only is the service superb but the food is amazing and leaves a magical taste in your mouth with every bite!!!!! "
" By far one of the best French bistro in Queens. The food was fresh and fantastic. The pork belly sandwich is one for the ages. A hidden gem in the Jackson heights. The staff is also very friendly. The Crêpes are just a sweet taste of heaven. "
" Excellent addition to the Jackson Heights restaurant fare. I love French food and theirs is superb at very reasonable prices. And, very attentive staff as well! I had duck which was served with a wonderful light orange sauce, so frequently the sauce overwhelms the entree, not this time. Really good."
" If your looking for a cozy little spot, with a delicious portion of food, and a welcoming vibe, I recommend this place. I tried the steak and egg with the fries, delicious. The right amount, with the right price. I wish them much success. Definitely will be back, to try the rest of the menu."
" What a hidden gem! I ate the tagliatelle mushroom pasta one one occasion and the salmon with wild rice and sorrel sauce on another and both dishes were delicious! The staff is also very warm, welcoming and friendly. So happy to finally discover an amazing place to dine at in this neighborhood. Highly recommend."
" Truly decadent food. The seafood pasta is among the best I’ve had, as was the creme brûlée. The wait staff is very friendly (especially Fabian) where they almost feel like family. Vincent, the restaurant’s owner, cares deeply for his diners’ experience and ensures you have the best dinner, every time."
" I absolutely adore this place. Lovely atmosphere, excellent food, superb service."
