Special Holiday Hours!!

We no longer open on Tuesdays, but will open Tuesday December 23rd to help celebrate the season.  

 

Reveillon Only on Christmas Eve

Due to the popularity and demand for Reveillon and Christamas Eve reservations, we will only be serving the Reveillon Menu that night.  The rest of the month we will have our normal menu in addition to the Reveillon Menu.  There will also be no corkage amnesty available on Christmas Eve.

 

Please join us for dinner in our heated courtyard!

Martinique Bistro's beautiful courtyard is now available year round thanks to our convertible roof and walls.  We also have heaters to keep the temperature warm this holiday season.

Classic French Bistro with a Caribbean Twist

This Uptown eatery has been celebrated by its local neighborhood for 20 years. Residents, friends and their families clearly note this establishment as a unique experience in a unique city.

Executive Chef Eric LaBouchere proudly produces the innovative and creative food that is Martinique Bistro.  Dishes are specifically crafted using hand picked local ingredients, produce and seafood from nearby farmers and fishermen. We are knownfor fine dining in a charming and sophisticated yet casual ambiance.  

On a visit from New York City in the mid-1990s, Cristiano Raffignone and Kelly Barker dined at Martinique Bistro, an experience they never forgot.  In the fall of 2003 they bought it.  A recent remodeling has added a French/Mediterranean eclectic style. Al fresco dining in our award winning garden room with its state of the art retractable roof allows you to dine and experience our cuisine in one of the best courtyards in the city.  Once you savor what we are all about, we believe you will become a "neighbor" and friend.
