A delicious find

French!!! Provencal. Lovely French restaurant that offers a lot of outdoor seating on their patio. Dog friendly at that. But if you are taking your dog, a large one could be problematic. The tables are very close, not leaving much room for pooch, and a busy staff to co-exist. Ours is very... read more

We had a Caesar salad and french onion soup for appetizers - both were good. We had mussels and the cassoulet for main courses. The mussels were good (but not great) and the cassoulet was dry and somewhat tasteless - not recommended. On our next visit, I will stick to bistro food like chicken and hanger steak and hope for...

We were pleasantly surprised when we winged our visit to La Brasserie with a last minute reservation. The patio is one of the most unique I have ever seen, you are transported away from the strip-mall style shopping center you truly are in. The food was divine and the service was excellent!

Food, service, menu = Excellent! Good size private patio even though in a strip mall location. Definitely a favourite choice for dinner or happy hour.

Great French menu. Everything you remember from your trip to France. Everything tasted good as close to a French brasserie as you can get. Worth a trip.

Nice quite place off the beaten track. Small bar but very nice bar tender. Had a Calamari salad and then hanger steak with fries. Good selection and nice atmosphere. Nothing overly special but good food at a fair price. I'd go back.

What a busy restaurant with atmosphere - Silvie - our server(?management?) really looked after us andall the tables around us - the others worked as an excellent team. Our Main courses were excellent and also good value - the vegetable selection was - the best I have sampled in many years. Good sized portions - not too big - prepared... More

Excellent food, traditional French with a modern twist. Wine list was good and reasonably priced. Reservations are a good idea, the place can bet a little noisy.

Brasserie bistro and bar is a well appointed, busy restaurant that is quite good until the food arrives, and you are caught up in a world of mediocrity. I ordered onion soup and trout almandine, which any French restaurant should be able to do in its sleep. B,B & B handled it as in a coma. The onion broth was... More

food is terrific, service excellent, prices moderate, tables far enough apart to allow easy conversation, most nights you will wish you had a light sweater outside (though they do have ample number of heaters)
