Bon Vivant is a French bistro located in downtown Palo Alto. Our menu combines unique French dishes with moderately-priced traditional bistro fare. Bon Vivant offers an extensive wine list, as well as a range of interesting cocktails and aperitifs, including several varieties of pastis (an anise flavored French aperitif). Diners can indulge in fresh breads and desserts cooked on site by our Pastry Chef.
At Bon Vivant, we offer an extensive but carefully curated selection of the finest wines from France and California. We pride ourselves on offering wines characterized by quality and their unique pairing to our special dishes. Enjoy them by the glass, by the bottle, or in our specially designed flights.
We also specialize in preparing signature cocktails as well as constantly discovering great new iterations of the classics. In our endless pursuit to create the best libations, we use only the freshest seasonal ingredients and prepare our own specially infused spirits as well as house-made syrups.
