Bon Vivant


Bon Vivant recalls the charm and pleasure of a Parisian brasserie, located downtown Palo Alto. Bon Vivant food is inspired by bistro classics which showcase French tradition and technique. We composed a menu that celebrates traditional French cuisine alongside seasonal ingredients. The wine list has a great selection of French and Californian wines by the glass, as well as assortment of cocktails and beers.

Bon Vivant is about great food and interesting people. Enjoy and thank you for dining with us at Bon Vivant!
