Very good all round

W"e were a party of five and were were warmly welcomed, and offered drinks on arrival. Our waitress (server) was most attentive and very efficient in most respects other than her knowledge of French wines. Fortunately we didn't need her help.

Overpriced, we were not able to use our groupon. We were told because it was brunch, even though restaurant serve dinner on Sundays. The waitress did not offer to send the manager. We think she sholud have allowed us touse it.

There is absolutely nothing that impressed me about this place. I found it a bit overpriced for what they were offering, service was ok but lacked any sorts of personal touch or personality in general (felt like we were waited on by a precise robot for a lack of better association). Been to many french restaurants and this was the... More

Food quality and service has slipped. Had to ask for water, bread, butter, lemons, etc. My salad came without one of the advertised items on it; had to ask again. Slightly overpriced for lunch (Soup is $8.50) and service must improve. A smile at the host desk wouldn't hurt either! It was excellent when it opened, but has not maintained... More

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.
