Bistro 82

Map401 S. Lafayette Ave.
Royal Oak, MI 48067
  • Restaurants


In the winter of 2014, a bright spot popped up on the Royal Oak restaurant scene — Bistro 82. Since then, it has become a favorite amongst those who know world-class cuisine, thanks to Chef Derik Watson's inspired, creative, and simply gorgeous food.

Awarded "Best French Restaurant" by HOUR Detroit Magazine in 2015 & 2016, along with many other celebrated awards, Bistro 82 sates the appetites of adventurous foodies with offerings like bone marrow, steak tartar, and roasted cobia, and features a seasonally rotated selection. It also provides beautifully crafted interpretations of classics like steak frites and seared scallops. Watson lends the same creative approach to meatless dishes, such as a vegetable risotto, which is both gluten-free and vegan.

The wine program includes selections from France, Italy, and California, among others.

Open Tuesday through Sunday, Bistro 82 offers a daily not-to-be-missed Happy Hour from 4:00pm – 6:30pm (and all day on Thursdays), with guest favorites under $10. In addition, a $25 Filet & Cabernet pairing is offered each Tuesday, and on Wednesdays, guests can enjoy ½ off on bottles of wine under $100.

Private dining is available and special events are welcomed, accommodating parties of up to 200 guests, with full A/V capabilities.
