One of the best dining experiences in Northampton. Great atmosphere and food. Feel good about ordering the Frites!

We found Les Gras online, and the reviews were promising. The meal was not merely promising, it was the best we've found in Northampton in multiple trips. The menu is small, and seasonal. The space is simple, white table cloth with butcher paper on top. There's a small bar, with a light buzz, including people eating at the bar. Service... More

Eight of us shared a delicious meal, most of which derived from locally sourced ingredients. The pork and beef was spectacular with rich but non overly seasoned sauces. Vegetables in season dominated the sides and were prepared with the utmost care. Finally, the desserts must be tried as they showcase the restaurant's strengths. The menu changes frequently.

Located outside of downtown NoHo and across from the town's historic Forbes Library, this place was inviting and friendly. Service was attentive and informative. Try their Steamed Mussels with chilies, bacon and white wine. Yummy. Their pumpkin risotto with rice, sage brown butter and parmesean cheese was a great entree to end a perfect autumn day.

This is a gem of a restaurant. Every dish I tried was delicious. Still thinking about the fried pickles and root vegetables. Nice meals are rare with 3 kids so I don't waste my time trying a restaurant more than once. I would return to Bistro Les Gras in a heartbeat!

This restaurant tries hard to give a French dining experience and it mostly succeeds. I had the duck confit appetizer ($11) and bluefish ($21). The duck had a crispy exterior and a very nice duck flavor overall. However, it came out a little too salty. It was served with a fruit compote on top of the duck and a spoon... More

Every time I visit Bistro Les Gras I'm impressed with the food. Every dish is great, whether it's the vichyssoise or the hamburger. Appetizers always terrific. Service great. Wine list impressive.

Never went to a French resteraunt, and wasn't sure what to expect. I am a really picky eater. Had the fried pickles and burger. It was amazing! Really nice atmosphere. Highly recommend.

Each dish from the snacks to the entrees to the desserts had many components and were done perfectly. The seared scallops with pork belly, are you kidding? Excellent! Steak tartare like you only read about. We ordered the bread and butter basket. The butter is made in house from real cream. It is unsalted, but I like it that way.... More

This is a lovely little corner bistro with such potential! However, the food is shadowed by our waiter who is very inefficient, profusely sweating (and wiping it off with his hands! ewe) and never apologizes for long wait times. To make matters worse, he messes up the order and our meals are "auctioned" off to the wrong person at our... More
