About the restaurant
Established in 1998, Bistro Vida is a neighborhood restaurant inspired by the great Parisian bistro culture and traditions of French cooking. Our mission is to bring the joie de vivre, comfort, and community of the City of Lights to downtown Menlo Park. The name " Vida" the Spanish word for life, was chosen as a toast to the enjoyment of life, love, and food. Each delicious detail of the chic interior from the smart bar to the blackboard menus, the huge cylindrical chandeliers to the long mirrors reminiscent of brasseries has acquired a warm patina over the years.

About the restaurant
At Hemmingway's Bistro the menu combines classic French dishes with the freshest Midwest ingredients.
The daily specials reflect the chef's love for fresh seafood. Using mostly East-coast seafood flown in from Boston daily, the chef creates dishes like wild mushroom-crusted halibut on horseradish whipped potatoes and roasted sea bass on Caussoulet beans.
There is also a Parisian seafood bar offering towers of Plateau de Fruit de Mer with fresh oysters, clams, shrimp, and lobster.

At the moment, there's no online availability within 2.5 hours of your request. Do you have another time in mind?

About the restaurant
Originally known as Phoebe's Garden Café, the restaurant has a long and colorful history in Syracuse. Local lore claims that the building was originally a brothel, and Phoebe was its madam.
In the summer of 2004, Phoebe's experienced a refreshing makeover with a bright new look in the atrium dining room with fresh paint, new upholstery, and artwork. The coffee lounge also opened that year, and it became an instant hit with the surrounding university and business crowd. Those changes also warranted a new name to reflect the updated attitude and ambiance: Phoebe's Restaurant and Coffee Lounge. Classic elements of Phoebe's remain untouched—the French onion soup and enticing crème brulee, for example, but other menu items change seasonally.
The Lounge also has its own seating area and free wireless internet capabilities. Phoebe's old world charm is right at home in a revitalized area of the city.

Always such a treat to go to Phoebe’s when we visit Syracuse. We started coming years ago when our oldest was active in the SU acting program. It’s the perfect spot near the Syracuse Stage. We were thrilled to know this treasure so we could return with our youngest son. We were grateful they could accommodate a big enough table for all his close college pals. The food was incredible and a special place to gather. Thank you to all who made it a perfect night.

We thought we were coming in for the Drag Brunch and were disappointed to miss out on that. However, the food, drinks and ambiance are outstanding. The blue crab bisque, crab beignet and truffle mac are perfection. The cocktails are also very good.

The scones were almost half the size they used to be, the portions were smaller, and the gluten free options were not that tasty. For the price, we did not feel the food was up to the proper standard. That being said, the service was impeccable, the harp player was so talented and the music was serene. The staff was so friendly and helpful that it made the experience very memorable.
