Arrived on a quiet evening to be greeted by a sullen youth who made no effort to make us feel welcome. He seemed void of personality & almost made us walk away at this early point in our visit. Once seated we were served by a charming young lady & had delicious French food. The Croque Monsieur was massive &... More

Excellent little bistro at fashion island. Very fresh food, good service, nice wine list, outdoor seating. A great place to stop in during a shopping day. Very happy with the selection.

We were excited to try last Saturday craving a bit of French bistro food. Waiter was very busy so we were patient. Finally he took our drink and food order. We ordered an appetizer of calamari and waited and waited. Waiter stopped by noticing we didn't have. I saw him go immediately to computer and punch it in so guess... More

Perhaps Sunday is not a good day to visit this restaurant. They were out of Beef Bourgignon and Petrole Sole. Service poor...loooong wait even though only half full for dinner. Faux French.. definitely not memorable. Too bad, because the location is good and the ambiance charming.

Went here with my little furry friend after shopping across the way from Muttropolis. Got a table outside and the ambience was nice and peaceful. It is beautiful to sit outside in the California sunshine and people watch. I got the French onion soup and a grilled artichoke and both were great. Would definitely do again.

Tired. Lousy Nordstrom's. Long Walk to Barnes and back to Niemans...hungry and don't want a lot bar noise--this "cafe" is just the ticket. Pleasant service. A little Paris-faux, but who cares. The question is--how is the food and is the noise level a least a little bit sane. The answer--plus and plus. Large menu. Nice wine list. A good place... More

$5 for most appetizers, champagne cocktails and beer. Delicious food and beautifully prepared. A great place to relax and watch the shoppers go by. Happy hour is M-F, 2-5 p.m.

Cute faux French bistro decor Had french onion soup, steak frites, and creme brûlée Soup was quite good, may be a bit salty for some but I liked it Fries were excellent, hot and crisp The steak was another story Very thin, limpid, seemed marinated and in a gelatinous sauce Creme brûlée was back on the positive side, caramelized top...

After reading a few positive reviews, I decided to try for a french bistro experience in the heart of the Newport Beach Fashion Island Mall. I ordered Tuna Nicoise salad and pommes frites. I got salad topped unceremoniously with with DRY canned tuna. The pommes frites were cold french fries. Definitely not worth the trip. Nice outdoor eating area though.
