Restaurant description

The Bleeding Heart Bistro is one of a gathering of gems in the Bleeding Heart franchise. Set in the heart of Farringdon, The French-inspired bistro offers a classic and modern French cuisine accompanied by a fine selection of wines.

All the traditional French dishes can be found on the Bleeding Heart Bistro menu from escargots to steak haché. For a hint of the contemporary, try the warm crab tarte Florentine with chive sauce. Cardamon and ginger île flottante heads the dessert menu.

Prized by Bleeding Heart is the award-winning wine list boasting 450 different bottles. The love of which is shown by the abundance of 19th-century French wine posters and decorative empty wine bottles.

Bleeding Heart Bistro is equipped with a large outdoor terrace covered with a red awning and adorned with a vineyard sculpture to maximise the French ambience. Farringdon Tube Station is a 2-minute walk away.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Perfect way to end a busy day, catching up with a friend over good food and wine, attended to by friendly, efficient wait staff. Excellent value for money too.

    Lovely food - very tasty vegetarian main dish. Relaxing atmosphere to have conversations without straining to hear each other

    very good bistro, albeit a bit noisy. Probably better for lunch than dinner. Wines rather expensive.

    The service was slow - we waited an unconscionable period of time for our mains. We had ordered poached salmon, having checked it was served cold. When we had to ask where our food was, it appeared almost immediately - curious. Sadly it arrived lukewarm on hot plates. Safer still, it was supposed to be served with new potatoes. My plate had one half a boiled new potato, my friend’s plate had none. After some hesitation a dish of sautéed me potatoes arrived. Eventually a free bottle of wine was offered. When it came to deserts, before we could order we were told - pointedly - that all orders would take 30 minutes. We had coffee. I have eaten there before and was disappointed.

    Pretty indifferent experience! No ambience, forensic lighting, food ok, but cold mince pies virtually thrown on table at end of meal, by way of the “mince pies and coffee” at the end of the menu. Fairly charmless service too. This was a return visit but won’t be rushing back.
