About Us

Bistro St. Germain, like most French ideas, was born around a dinner table. Three brothers living in three different continents, were at last together again, celebrating a long awaited family reunion. Life had taken each brother into similar but separate paths. Pascal was an established restaurant owner in Seal Beach, CA. His brother, Armand had remained in Grenoble, France to take care of the family restaurant established in 1980, and Laurent, who married their sister Danielle, had his own French restaurant in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

While reminiscing about their childhood in France, the comfort food that grandmother used to make, the great wines, and the relaxed French lifestyle, the idea of opening a French bistro was born. Why not embody all of that into a true French family restaurant and share it with everyone else? When you step into Bistro St. Germain, you are stepping into our family restaurant.

Sit back and relax, enjoy yourself, treat yourself to a meal, a glass of wine and let us know how we can make your visit memorable. Welcome to Bistro St. Germain!
