After being to Budapest, Hungary, we craved the delicous food...so we found this restaurant and it was incredible. The food was exactly what we had experienced in Hungary. Although this restaurant has since closed, we are writing this in hopes that one day it will open again!

Although there were few other customers on the Friday night we visited, service was very slow. After a long wait (at least a half hour), our first dinner arrived. Then further delays between each of the other meal deliveries, maybe ten minutes before the fourth person was served. Was the food worth waiting for? Two of us rated it a... More

We went to this restaurant for dinner on a Friday night. We both work, so we weren't looking for a long, long dining experience. Unfortunately, that is what we got!! The service is the worst I have seen in years. We arrived at 7:15 and didn't get served until 8:45. The food took forever to come and it really wasn't... More

I know several people who have gone to this restaurant for lunch and enjoyed it. We tried it for dinner and were somewhat disappointed. The good aspects: some (not all) very tasty dishes -- a Hungarian stew, a paprika dish -- but others were just OK, and nothing up to the quality you would expect for a $30 prix fixe... More

This review is a little late so whether things have changed I don't know. They should just stick with a simple a la carte menu firstly and no gimmicky confusing discounts. The food was very average and when one of our party politely made a negative comment about a dish, the waitress (owner?) disagreed with them and argued that there... More

My husband and I went there for dinner on a Friday night. We were the only ones in the restaurant the whole time! The owner waited on us and was completely delightful. I ordered the French Onion soup which had barely any cheese and the toasted breading on top was stale/burnt. For my entree, I chose the Beef Bourguignon, which... More

Our excitement about this restaurant was dampened by the slow service. Only one person (Susan, the owner) serviced the entire dining room and we waited for 45 minutes for the main course to arrive. The food was well presented and everyone agreed that the cook had done an excellent job of preparing the food. Then the bill arrived! Even though... More

Visited this restaurant for a weekday lunch after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. The restaurant is located in a somewhat unprepossessing strip mall. It is a small, cozy restaurant with a "European" feel. Having spent time in both Paris and Budapest, and with the photos on the walls of both cities, I suppose it's no great surprise that we... More

My wife and I had dinner here on a recent Sat. We had made a reservation for 5:30 and even though we were held up in traffic, Susanne had our table when we arrived. She even called to see if we were lost and needed directions. The dining room is charming in a French Bistro style with lots of vintage... More

We visited Paris to Budapest Restaurant for dinner. We found the service to be warm and crisp. Our orders were taken quickly; our Caesar salads and wine were presented in a timely, but not rushed manner. The food was perfect. We ordered one entree of Chicken Paprika with dumplings, and one special - Beef Tournedos with red cabbage and roasted... More
