Print Friendly

A new French bistro at the old Valentino’s location, 4331 McCullough Ave., opened Wednesday.

New bistro in Olmos Park opened by former L'Etoile principles.

Restaurateur Michael Burkle, along with Patrick Lanchais and chef Laurent Rea are presenting “elegant casual” bistro fare at Olmos Park Bistro. The menu included grilled meats, salads, an oyster bar and lobster tank.

Burkle is the brother of Thierry Burkle, who owns The Grill at Leon Springs with business partner Armand Obadia. The restaurateurs are veterans of one of the city’s long-lived, notable French restaurants, L’Etoile, which is now closed.

The new restaurant will be open from 5-10 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 5-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and they will also have Sunday brunch. For more information call 210-826-0222.

    Best restaraunt, service and environment. I went to Olmos Park Bistro the first day it was opened with my daughters for a night out I want to say the whole experience was amazing. The service started at the door when you walk in. They greet you with a warm welcome and smile and the food was excellent. I had the Redfish and it was mouthwatering good. We tasted different items on the menu and every item we chose was worth the visit. Our waitress was Amy and she was very attentive. I think the thing that stood out to me and my daughters was that we were’nt just attented by our waitress Amy but I had both the owner Michael along with his wife Dora as well as the chef come to see how things were and make sure that we were being taken care of and we didnt need anything. Exceptional Service, Great People, Beautiful place to have a great dinner not just your average place. This is a place you want to take someone you want to impress and want to have an outstanding dining experience.

    • Thanks for your ‘first look” mini review of Olmos Park Bistro. We are going soon to check it out and launch a few photos for SavorSA readers. I’m glad you had such a good experience — SA always deserves another good restaurant! Bonnie

    Food was high priced and the server was not very good with the menu it was a slow night so are meal was brought to us all at one time versus at diffrent times

    • Hi Scott – I am hoping that the service improves — and I found the prices moderately high, too – but I thought the prices were not out of line considering the quality of the food that chef Rea was putting out. I do think that for us it will need to be more of a special night out kind of place rather than casual weekday dining. Thanks for your note! Bonnie
