The Yacht Club opens it's dining to the public during the summer season between Memorial Day and Labor Day. French cuisine and seafood are featured. Pretty good wine list, though some Bourdeaux could use a bit more aging. Right on the water overlooking Lake Champlain and The Green Mountains of Vermont in the distance.

We were very pleased with our dining experience at Le Bistro du Lac, Westport. I have already recommended it to friends. Lovely setting, building, decor and delicious, too! The fresh lobster presentation was one of a kind and delicious! The Steak Frites Salade was a perfect plate and delicious, too. Great cheese cake, good beer selection and it was all... More

My brother and I dined here this past weekend on our sailing trip. It was a beautiful Saturday night and we did not have a reservation but we took the dingy ashore to Le Bistro. Bernard, the owner, greeted us on arrival and helped us tie up the dingy. We asked if the restaurant had a table for two and... More

We were exhausted after a long day of driving. Stopped at the Bistro and were prepared to pay a bundle for a nice dinner. We were seated, given water and then ignored. After 20 minutes, we walked away. We have never done that before but, then, we have never been treated so rudely. It was a Monday night and they... More

Chose this restaurant based on view of the lake. Service was snail pace at best. Servers were not knowledgable on menu. Food was ok but not worth the money. Outside seating but no bug control. Would not go back.

This is such a wonderful place. The setting is gorgeous, the food is classic French cuisine and absolutely delicious. They got us in and out in about an hour. I had veal medallions with a mushroom sauce and my husband had chicken breast aux champignons. Both were delicious. We love going to this beautiful spot!

Clueless bartender, bland escargot and service lacks. Escargot sauce was bland. For the price you are going to pay here its simply a low quality summer help place. Bartender was lost and really had no idea what as going on. I would pass on this place.

We have been satisfied patrons of Bernard and Rosemarie for twenty years or more ever since they started in the Essex Marina and then moved to Westport. Loved their place in Essex and we went often since we live in that area. Our trips to Westport have been less frequent, but we try to visit once a year. Our last... More
