Although located in a shopping mall, this place has enough ambiance to make you overlook the surrounding stores. We celebrated Bastille Day early although this restaurant had nothing special going on for the Saturday prior to July 14th. I ordered 2 appetizer plates (the pate and cheese) as my lunch and my wife got the La Provencale crepe. We split... More

The crepes and salads are really nice. The food is very fresh and excellent. Certainly worth re-visiting if one is in this area.

The bar is very nice and, during the summer months, the outdoor dining section, while a tad loud caused by nearby traffic, is quite enjoyable. The "monsieur" sandwich is most tasty; good wine selection and good service. One of my local faves!

We have dined here many times. Tonite was not great. I ordered the kobe burger with frites for $19. Ordered it medium. What i got was the driest overdone burger i have EVER eaten. My husband wanted me to send it back, but honestly i didn't feel like making an issue over it. Hubby ordered a rare steak and his... More

Love the food. We weren't there for the wine and it seemed the bar was a little on the loud side. Service was good enough. Escargot is awesome! Not into Foie Gras - nothing is good enough to torture an animal for.

We ate here recently for a friend's birthday. We were a few couples, not a big group. The service was alright though not as professional as one would expect. This is a restaurant that cannot seem to decide if it wants to be white linen formal, or corner bakery casual and something seems to be lost in the process. I... More

We visited with another couple and had a wonderful meal. We sat in the bar area, where there was a singer. The atmosphere was great. I think we tried all the small plates they offer! Our service was excellent.

We were attending the wine dinner for Helfrich Winery so the wines were wonderful. Service was a bit disjointed from the reception desk which was unclear about the reservations regarding their dinner to service staff. Dining room service was not very professional over all. I don't know if this is an attempt to be "very French" or just uncaring. The... More

Following my first visit to L'Eiffel Bistrot in March, 2014, I found it difficult to imagine anyone having a bad experience there. Having grown up in a home where French cuisine was served regularly, and having dined at many fine French restaurants over my lifetime, my expectations were high and if anything they were exceeded in virtually every regard. Despite... More

A great place to go as a couple or with friends. You'll feel like you are in a downtown Chicago restaurant. They have a terrific wine club as well. Great bar area for an after work get together
