I am not big on the old fashioned french restaurants but this place has a new casual spin on french food that I love. The coconut curry mussels with french fries were amazing. The appetizers were outstanding. Prices affordable. I will go back.

We've eaten several times at L'Eiffel and were there again for brunch. We were able to sit outside. They have a good selection of different types of Eggs Benedict and crepes for brunch or lunch. Very friendly and attentive service.

L'Eiffel Bistrot is a nice little restaurant within the Arboretum shopping center. They have a nice outdoor patio by a fountain, great bar and bartender with an extensive wine and absinthe selection. We typically go for a drink and starters (mussels & escargot are the best). The restaurant is also good for business dinners if your office is nearby as... More

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. The menu was quite extensive, but not totally French, which was a bit of a pity. Our food was... More

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
