Vogue Bistro (February 2012)
5411 W Waddell Rd in Surprise (Waddell Rd & Reems Rd.)
I am very excited to provide this following review of Vogue Bistro in Surprise. Yes, although this restaurant is a few miles north, it’s well worth the drive. Voted ‘Best New Restaurant’ by Phoenix Magazine and ‘25 Best Restaurants in Arizona’ by Arizona Highways Magazine, we at Estrella Publishing would very much agree with our colleagues, this small bistro has some of the most amazing dishes we have tried recently.
This small but cozy restaurant has a comfortable ambiance, nice decor and friendly, professional, attentive service. This is an ideal place for a casual
family lunch, a business meeting or an intimate dinner for two, all of which is reasonably priced. Vogue Bistro offers a Contemporary American bistro cuisine using high quality, locally grown fresh produce and ingredients.
With such a large menu it’s hard to describe each item from Onion Soup to Oysters Rockefeller to Alaskan Salmon, Filet Mignon, Eggplant Parmesan, as well as burgers and sandwiches. Their daily specials range from Scallops to Chilean Sea Bass and Beef Wellington. All dishes are made from scratch and to order and still served in a reasonable time. I enjoyed the Meatloaf in a savory sherry sauce that was just amazing served with potatoes au gratin and asparagus. The children had macaroni and cheese that was made with truffle oil and bits of pancetta. This was no Kraft mac & cheese and was so good that our son asked for a 2nd order to go. I too really enjoyed this, not just for kids…
Our other son tried the Rabbit Civet, which is a rabbit stew with potato, wild mushrooms and seasonal vegetables. Not only could not I believe that our son was venturing to try something out of the ordinary, he was very pleased with his entrée. Everyone at the table raved about their meal, how tasty and flavorful each dish was. It doesn’t stop there, be sure to save room for desert, as these are just the right portion size, not too big, but sweet enough for that after meal treat. There is also a sophisticated wine list featuring celebrated wines from the world's best regions, "designer" martinis, a bourbon club, and a craft beer selection to please the true beer connoisseur. They offer full service catering for any occasion. From simple to the most refined,
Vogue delivers extraordinary food, artistic presentation, and professional service to your home or business. I am strongly considering this bistro for our next house party, our youngest child even requested to have his next birthday dinner there so we will be returning several times. This is a must try restaurant and we give it our strongest recommendation.
