Nice pleasant evening for a group of 10 coworkers accommodated on short notice. Great if smaller selection of authentic French cuisine, including a prix fixe menu. Savory crepes were a good choice. Half priced bottles of wine on Monday crowned an excellent value.

We had dinner with friends based on a recommendation of someone I know who stated this was a good restaurant. We were very please with the evening at L'Eiffel Bistrot. First it was conversation friendly which was awesome as so many restaurants now are way too loud. Our service was very good. The menu is quite extensive with items at... More

Very flavorful, very rich. Nice ambiance. Staff is friendly and attentive. It's a wonderful change of pace from the big chains. I always overeat here : ) It's just too good to stop.

Great day for experiencing this location. Once an outstanding destination. Priced 10% too high on ALL items, wines by the glass need to return the 7-8 mark again to improve their margin and customer interest. Great French Fare...just needs a chef capable of hitting the mark on these on a consistent basis.

We've been going here for years. Owners are great! Wait staff is typically great...or they aren't there long. Food is to die for! Have the specials...as they really are special! You have to love French food to go here, but this is authentic and real as anything in the states.

This is our favorite local restaurant. Food is fantastic and the staff is excellent. The wine club is delightful. You get 2 bottles of wine a month and can choose from 2 reds, 2 whites or a combination. With that membership comes Thurs night wine tastings with small appetizers to compliment each wine. Really nice outdoor seating for warm weather... More

Doing some shopping in the area, and stopped for lunch this past week. We were warmly greeted and had a difficult time trying to decided what to order given their fairly extensive, and typically French menu. I ordered the L'Oceane crepe which was filled with shrimp, perfectly cooked scallops and salmon served in a pesto cream sauce. My husband had... More

We've been to France a number of times, so we know what French food....both causal cafe food and more upscale food....is all about. We were very pleasantly surprised to find that the menu is wonderful and the wine list is appropriate. The restaurant is classy and the staff is well trained, courteous and knowledgeable. Both the Goat Cheese and House... More
