It's hard to believe this little French Bistro is located on the Main Line in Ardmore. We've gone many times over the years and we always enjoy our visit. The setting is quaint. The staff is professional but fun-not at all stuffy. Each one of them-from the host to the water server to the waiters-makes every effort to try to... More

We've dined here twice, both times as part of a 'double-date' with another couple. This is a nice choice for a BYOB on the Main Line if you like French food without pretension. On the most recent outing I had lovely steak frites and was happily served a filet complete with Bearnaise. Is this the best restaurant on the Main... More

I have dined here twice with the same small group of friends and we thoroughly enjoyed both experiences. We have had the different types of pate (each has a personal favorite and recommend a selection; beef bourguignon, salmon, duck, cassoulet, etc. The waiters have been polite, interesting and extremely helpful. My friends bring the wine. So impressed have we been... More

We have been there 5 times over the past few years, because it is reminiscent of a real French bistro. The ambiance is delightful and the food well above average. Alas, the prices are also above average! The service staff is courteous and knowledgeable. If you bring a good wine to this BYOB, be sure to ask for large glasses... More

A La Maison was once a favorite place for my husband and I. We have been to this restaurant many times with friends on various occasions, however, I am sad to say that I will not step foot into A La Maison again. I will let all of my friends know of my horrible experience and response (or rather, lack... More

If you enjoy classical French cuisine, this is the place to go in the suburban Philadelphia area. The dishes were classically prepared and the taste was very close to what you would find in France, especially the frites. There are so many wonderful choices, including the specials of the day, that it's difficult to make a choice when ordering your... More

I attended a special event put on at this restaurant. They offered wine and cheese, with pate as a "cocktail hour" type of introduction before sitting. At this point I noticed that everything about this place was top notch. I liked how the restaurant was decorated and was made to feel very comfortable by the owner and staff. Once we... More

Live so close to here and have always wanted to try this attractive BYOB in Ardmore, PA. Took my husband for a date night/Father's Day dinner. We were pleasantly surprised by the attractive, eclectic, spacious interior. Our waitress, Christine, was born and raised in France but as American as they come and so cute and nice. We started with the... More

A week night visit without a reservation to this lovely restaurant. We were disappointed that they were out of the halibut special. We settled on the poulet maison and the brook trout. The chicken was extremely moist and the sauce was was very flavorful. My mother said the brook trou was the best she ever had...light with a wonderful sauce.... More
