We have eaten here often without disappointment. Everything was delicious and the service excellent. The tables are few, so reservations are a good idea. And in warm weather, there are three or four tables in the back garden for dining outside.

A wonderful spot with outdoor seating in an enclosed courtyard that is charming. Great service and a very nice wine list. The food is delicious and prepared to perfection. Great presentation and reasonably priced. I particularly enjoyed the escargot. The salad was exceptional with a very tasty and light dressing. We liked it so much we went twice! I know... More

Le Galopin has the most wonderful lamb dish I have ever tasted. Excellent lamb, potato auflauf, and string beans. Yum! Service was great. Atmosphere was exceptional. I definitely will return.

New to the area and was recommended to try this restaurant. Unable to get a reservation for Saturday evening so we opted for Sunday lunch. What a treat! The quality of the food way surpassed my expectations, the service was friendly and efficient and the price was extraordinarily reasonable. In fact I would have expected to pay at least 4... More

We had lunch on a Saturday. We chose two menus of the day and enjoyed the good authentic French cuisine. The waiter was nice and we could order in French. The place was nice and cosy and the food was served quickly. The food was fresh and creative although the rabbit was a little dry, but still quite good. We... More

This is a nice little French restaurant close to the train station. We stumbled upon it by accident as we meandered through the neighborhood side streets. They are closed on Sunday night and all day Monday. They are open for lunch and dinner the rest of the days. We ate dinner on a Saturday night and it was busy but... More

This restaurant is a jewel! In a city overcrowded with doners,pizzas and salty fried foods;this is real food for real people. My husband and I have eaten here numerous times and shared the experience with many friends and never have had a bad meal or poor service. The menu changes often enough with specials despite being limited and the wine... More

I went to this restaurant on December 29, 2012 at 6:03 PM with 3 family members. There was NO other customers and all the seats were open. The waiter told us that there is no seat available for 4 people. REALLY?! NO OTHER customer and no seats available? I hate when people jump to the "racial discrimination" but this one,... More

I am American and my husband is German. Both of look forward to our twice a month fix at this very unique place. The Jacobs mussels are to die for and the frog legs are divine! The salads are a meal alone with their unique dressings and combinations of toppings (warm goat cheese my favorite) you can't beat. Love the... More
