Kiki's Bistro

Kiki's Bistro on Franklin has been recommended by a friend for excellent food and wine. Their wine list does look pretty impressive. Can anyone give us advice? Thanks

  1. It's a very good place. I assume you've already looked at the menu on their website ( ), which also shows their wine list. If I recall correctly, they also offer free valet parking, which is unusual for restaurants downtown. I strongly recommend making a reservation in advance (they accept them on as well as over the phone), since they were recently featured on "Check, Please", a local television show, so their business may have increased as a result. Good choice though.

    1. I used to go to Kiki's years ago. We would go a few times a year. We always had good food, service and wine. I used to swoon for their frites! I saw Check Please where it was feautred and am glad to hear it still seems to be perfoirming well. As the years go by so many established restaurants get lazy and let their food slide. It doesn't sound like Kiki's has done that. Enjoy!
