My husband and I dined at Café de France on Saturday evening July 19 in celebration of our 34th wedding anniversary. It was a very enjoyable experience overall and suited the occasion. The food was excellent, the wait staff attentive and the meal well paced. I have some food intolerances and had to ask some questions and make a special... More

Travel Zoo offered a deal I could not pass and last night brought me to this fine french restaurant about 40 minutes away from where I live. Me and my wife enjoyed escargot, rack of lamb (special du jour) and filet mignon, all cooked to perfection, great service with a smile from a young lady from Seattle and a moderately... More

We just finished the most wonderful meal and some of the best French food we have had outside of France. We sat outside on this beautiful day and enjoyed genuine french onion soup made from scratch, pate my husband loved and then I had delicious scallops with mashed potatoes and lightly cooked spinach followed by creme brulee; my husband had...

My wife and I rarely dine at French Restaurants, so we were pleased when her mother suggested Cafe de Paris for lunch. We passed many busy eateries on our walk to the restaurant. We had a nice window seat and the service was decent. The young waiter would have been more at home in a casual diner, but the owner... More

When we walked in to the restaurant for the first time we could have easily imagined that we were in Europe. The food was exactly as our helpful, pleasant waiter, Gabriel, described. We asked for and appreciated his suggestions. He guided us to an enjoyable wine and an excellent meal. We both decided to try the daily fish special, which... More

Waited 30 minutes for my reservation. Service was ok, but food was cold and bland. The owner walks around and flirts with all the girls. Would not leave our table.

You had already posted your comment on February 14, and said you would not be back...everyone can read our response to that message! We have not seen you since then. Again we have seen the person who bought the gift certificate that you tried to use that day, and he insists that he has no idea of who you are,... More

Rain falling, watching people walk by on Park Avenue. My server, Gabriel, recommended and I agreed. Enjoyed cream of mushroom soup with roasted garlic. And I savored every bite of my filet hamburger on baguette with rugula salad. A hint of bacon, blue cheese and a hint of fig. The combination of flavors was incredible. I was not disappointed! Gabriel... More

Don't waste your time or money here! The owner is so rude to customers. There are far better French restaurants around town. Will never be back

Hello Mr. T. In our defense, it might be good to know for all the good people reading Tripadvisor, that you ate your dinner, had your drinks and proceeded to give us a gift certificate which had been reported to us "lost or stolen" by the person who actually bought it. We tried to explain as politely as possible, but... More

We went for the monthly dinner and wine tasting and were excited when our table mates (we were seated family style which turned out to be quite fun) spoke of past delicacies enjoyed here.

Please accept our apologies for the server's comment. This is not how we expect our staff to address our clientele. It has been discussed with him, and will NOT happen again! We use only dark meat for our Coq au Vin, it has a more appropriate texture and flavor for this kind of dish. When we stew the chicken, and... More
