Excellent French Bistro and Pricey

Outdoor seating area to have wine and appetizers with friends. We have had excellent meals at L'Eiffel. It will be an expensive evening but good to splurge couple times a year here. A wonderful wine selection and can be paired with your food choices. Most servers know the menu and can assist you... read more

I was really expecting a lot of this place after seeing a lot of their ads on Facebook, so the 35mins drive was nothing. I'll start with my issues. 1. It would really help if the signs were actually lit up. Every other store around them had their store name shining with bright lights so it hid a corner restaurant... More

Our waiter was a little confused about some of the menu items, but was OK otherwise. The food was good, but this is not a discount diner, so keep that in mind. My wife had a crepe, which she really enjoyed, and I had the Chef's Platter, which was also good. We started with the foie gras, which was excellent;... More

This was my first visit to L'Eiffel Bistrot and Creperie. As I wanted sample the Happy Hour specials, I called ahead and reserved a table for the bar area (the restaurant started filling up after 6). The staff was very nice, but I did need to remind them I reserved a table in the bar area and not the dinning... More

The service was well below average. We couldn't find our waiter to take our order. The food was decent, but forgettable. The atmosphere seemed contrived, lacking the warm feel of a French/American Bistro.

Went for a larger group work dinner. Reservations made and arrived on time and table was ready. Ordered a round of french beer (it's a french restaurant and many of us aren't wine drinkers). Round 1 ok. Round 2 was available because not enough were chilled. Very odd but easy to pick something else. Food was priced as expected. Was... More

I was seated at a nice table within the front part of the restaurant and had a great view of the front door and other diners. I... More

Delicious and Wonderful Outdoor Cafe in SoBarrington. Crepes are wonderful and they are willing to make changes to accomodate allergies!

I like this little restaurant in The Arboretum. I have only been for lunch, but it is an enjoyable to-go stop when shopping in the area. Everything that I have sampled--from quiche, to crepes, to sandwiches and salads are fresh and flavorful. Desserts are also delightful and the coffee is deliciously European. The ambiance is such that it promotes table... More

We love French food and we love crepe. Found this from the web. Very typical French restaurant. Good food made with a class. The price was not bad as French restaurant is usually on the expensive side. The La Country crepe with Pancetta, aged Brie, mushroom and spinach was very good. The crab and shrimp cake egg benedict was good... More
