Very good Food in Ardmore with BYOB

A very good restaurant with very good service. I was there between Christmas and New Years with my daughter who went to school at Haverford and lives in town so we know the area well. A La Maison takes very good care of their customers and the BYOB feature is particularly attractive to us as we get... read more

Topped off with a mimosa or bloody... More

Charming atmosphere with delicious, authentic fare. We actually booked here to see the entertainment that was scheduled for the evening and were seated up front. Our server was attentive and relaxed. We shared the cheese platter with the addition of the pork pate. Perfect while sipping wine. We all ordered specials for entrees and they were fabulous! The diver scallops... More

My wife and I have had the good fortune to be served many delicious meals at A La Maison over the past three years. We have especially loved the salmon and other fish entrees as well as the duck and chicken dishes. The salads and onion soup have also been excellent. The ambience and the service has been consistently superb.... More

We were there with our friends about a month ago. I had forgotten how wonderful the food was. We shared salads. My husband had the steak frites. He said it was better than the Palm. I had the Moules Frites which was excellent. The potatoes seemed freshly hand cut. That was my one small complaint - would have liked them... More

Outstanding! The food -- excellent and authentically French -- and the service, not to mention the lovely atmosphere: what a delightful experience! We will certainly return, and bring family members as well as friends. Parking was fine for our 8:00 PM reservation; everyone was thoughtful, and the meal, for my husband's birthday, was exquisite. Romantic, relaxing, Provençal atmosphere.What a perfect... More

We have enjoyed dinner many times at A La Maison Bistro. There are many reasons why this is our favorite neighborhood place to go for dinner. The French cuisine is very good. Their menu is creative, broad and reasonably priced. We often choose their salmon which is cooked to perfection, and can be generous in its portion size. Their salads... More

If you are looking for genuine French, A LA Maison Bistro is your place. The atmosphere is quiet, the ambience muted and the food and service outstanding. We started with a three cheese appetizer including french bread, jams, and mustards. The entree selected was a trout and vegetables. ( I wanted to ask the chief how this was prepared.) The... More

Popular with locals and I have been there a few times. Casual atmosphere on main street. Menu and food preparation are 'bistroish", but not outstanding. Pate plate as starter is good, but pricey. Had disappointing fish -- very over cooked with average sides -- last visit. Others in group tried variety of dishes which were good, but not excellent. BYOB... More

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
