  • The veal sweetbreads are to die for! As crispy as toasted parchment, as tender as foie gras.
  • Bibou is cash-only, so dont forget your folding money.
  • This acclaimed French BYOB offers a two-person bar ideal for an intimate dinner.
  • #3 Best Restaurant in Philadelphia!
  • Bibou features excellent escargot, foie gras stuffed trotters, and so many of the other magnifique ensembles of traditional French cuisine done better here than anywhere in Philadelphia.
  • quail was great, bone marrow was amazing
  • Get the stuffed pig's foot. It's the best thing in town.
  • Kevin Sbraga loves this place! -Kevin Sbraga, Top Chef
  • Absolutely adore this nine table restaurant. Go book a reservation now, grab and love and drop some money and save on the wine (byob) on an outstanding meal.
  • After tasting the bone marrow, escargots, or seasonal specials like melon soup with slivered prosciutto, youll know why suit-jacketed Main Liners willingly squeeze into its tiny environs.
  • Now it's all tasting, but the escargot was phenomenal. Tiny place, great experience.
  • It may sound strange but you'll want to order the Pied de Porc (braised pig's foot stuffed with foie gras). It's a knockout. Don't forget the escargots appetizer!
  • Emilio Mignucci, chef of Di Bruno Bros., eats here on his nights off. He loves the Escargots.
  • Bone marrow.
  • Charming, quaint, un-stuffy French restaurant. Food was excellently prepared and fresh. The best Monkfish I've ever had. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu)
  • Chef Pierre Calmels is peerless when it comes to creating sophisticated versions of Franco-peasant cuisine. BYOB, of course. [Eater 38 Member]
  • The pheasant is amazing!
  • Amazing, amazing food. Tastes straight out of France.
  • Really nice family-owned spot, nominated for best new resto by Beard Found. Will accommodate vegetarians. Just ask when you reserve.
  • really ought to get a res for what I would argue is the best new French classic restaurant in Philadelphia - don't miss foie gras and the new twist on cassoulet, with guinea hen sausage and navy beans
