    Petmate® Le Bistro Portion Control Pet Feeder is rated 2.1 out of 5 by 76.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product There is not a strong catch between the bowl and the feeder. My cats pushed the bowl so it was no longer connected. And since the bowl is not connected it clogs up and the cats do not get fed. It cannot be counted on if you happen to be away. Way too much money for what you are getting. I contacted the manufacturer and they are aware of the problem and have no solution for the issue.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from unreliable The feeder works great for short periods of time. There are some underlying problems with this feeder. 1) the bowl is loose and food will dispense on floor. We taped the bowl securely several times around the bowl and unit so it does not come off when our lab is eating. 2) the food increments are much less than indicated. We selected 2 cups per serving 3x a day, but the actual amount dispensed is only about a cup. 3) the battery was clearly low, but the light did not display. 4) had the product for 4 months, had several occasions where it did not dispense and now it will not dispense at all! The reason we use this unit is for portion control; there are 3 of us and we found we were all feeding him, we were able to go away for the weekend and not worry about feeding him. If this product was more reliable it would truly be a blessing, but find I always need to confirm if it dispenses..and more than a few nibbles! It has stopped working, so hope we could exchange for a different brand!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Tamper Proof Purchased and set up a schedule. Timer and amounts fed worked fine, but I was wondering why my cat was eating even after the bowl had been emptied. *Note, flaps inside of dispenser can be pushed up to dispense food. This was way to easy for my cat to do. Makes this worthless as a timed food dispenser.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from inconsistent and easily broken I have a pug (the breed is notorious for overeating). I bought 2 of these (hoping the first one was just defective). Neither one dispensed the correct amount of food (giving too little on one feeding and too much the next feeding or getting completely jammed up because it didn't all drop the first go round). After a couple of days my not too bright pug managed to figure out that if he pawed up into the slot the food drops down from, then he can get it to give him more food (think Pavlov here and you basically get the idea that it didn't take him long to empty the container out while we weren't home- I had thankfully not filled it completely up). His constant pawing broke the mechanism inside that rotates to drop the food. Was completely dismayed that this happened on 2 devices. Trying one of those automatic tray feeders now to see if that will work out better (fingers crossed).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the hassle We bought this hoping it would help our 2 cats get the right amount of food while we are away but I have found that 1/3 of the time it overfeeds (twice the programmed amount), 1/3 of the time ut underfeeds (half the programmed amount) and 1/3 of the time it is just right. The idea and options seem good but these just don't seem to work too good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I CAN SLEEP IN AGAIN! We bought this for our cat because we're going on vacation soon, and wanted to ensure she's got the food she needs at the times that suit her, without overfeeding her with one giant bowl of food. Setup was a bit tricky (don't forget to buy batteries!), but once it was up and running - and I double checked my abilities to follow all of the setup instructions - it's been great! No more face-bats at 5am for food, no more howling for dinner, no more worry about overfeeding our plump little house-beast. Be *sure* to follow all instructions, and definitely watch it for a couple of days to ensure it's working right, for certain. For us, it's been a godsend, and I highly recommend this feeder.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Older model has been working great for years After reading several negative reviews, I feel I should throw Petmate a bone so to speak. We’ve been using the black LeBistro with our cat about 7 to 8 years. It has always worked reliably, and when the low battery light comes on, I know I have about a month to get it replaced. Our cat food is the small size kibble and we feed a quarter of a cup twice daily Things they could improve: the display is not bright enough, my cat can fish out extra kibble, and we eventually bought an AC adapter so that we know longer had to buy batteries (the D batteries last close to 2 years). I was checking out the new model to see if those minor things had been corrected. I cannot speak to the reliability of the new model.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fat cat I wish I had seen these reviews before I bought it. My cat started getting fat and I had it only programmed to drop dinner. I was home with it and it just drops food whenever it likes to. You can clearly see on the display that only dinner is circled. Plus, my cat can get it to drop more with her paw.

    can this feeder be 'programmed' to feed at a set time with a set amount?

    Asked by: bcjim
    The feeder can be set to offer three different size Meals per 24 hours. Each Meal Serving is adjustable in 1/4 or 1/6 cup increments depending on the kibble size.
