Foursquare Tips

  • If they have it, get the porcini and truffle risotto. Best I've ever had!
  • A by-the-book bistro from chef Damien Watel that executes spot-on iterations of the classics, from coq au vin to steak frites.
  • Absolutely delightful
  • Always a great meal
  • bring either a French phrase book or know the language! I walked in there to find they don't know a lot of english!!! lol. I hear the owner is actually frm Belgium, not France-great pastries but $$$
  • Consistently good French/European fare, from bouillabaisse to foie gras, can be found at local chef Damien Watels cozy bistro.
  • No matter how the San Antonio dining scene evolves, there always will be room at the top for nearly note-perfect renditions of French classics.Fortunately, Bistro Vatel continues to deliver.
