Wonderful atmosphere

This is a beautiful, upscale restaurant. The food is generally excellent and service is good. Great for a romantic dinner, as well as a family gathering.

We have enjoyed BonFemme for many years. Still can't be beat on the escargot! Thoroughly enjoy the outdoor seating. Tender juicy steaks. Had one of the best Shrimp Scampi around but it was a limited item. Bananas Foster..Yum! And of course I can't leave out our favorite girls Mo & Shay! Love them!

Our first visit to Bonne Femme was impromptu and driven by curiosity about their French onion soup. The steak sandwich was richly flavored and served with beautifully seasoned fries. Outdoor dining is available but we choose indoors which was European casual elegance. We will return.

I love this place. The owner is a wonderful guy. Food is amazing. Save room for the bananas foster crepe....even if you don't have room for it, order it anyway! Their starter bread scrumptious, I love their granny Apple Smith salad and they usually get their giant crab cakes as my entree.

My husband and I really like to try and support the local establishments in the Valpo area. However, after a couple of just "ok" meals here a few years ago, we tried to give it another shot last night. Long story, short. Our waiter didn't put in our entree orders for 40 minutes after we arrived, and when we finally... More

Bon Femme use to be our favorite restaurant. But, after our latest experience, I don't know that we would be going back. We were there on a Friday evening at 6:00 pm. No problem getting seated as there wasn't anyone else there. The whole time we were there only three other tables were seated. Let me start by saying the... More

This was a special outing. My girlfriend took me here for my birthday. It's a cute little place with great service & wonderful food. We started out with delicious cocktails & a plate of warm bread that smelled like heaven. We had the fondue appetizer that was delicious but just not enough fondue. Our main course was the artichoke &... More

While in town staying at the Songbird Prairie B & B, my boyfriend and I came in for dinner and had a fantastic experience with our server Shay! She was fabulous and extremely helpful. The onion soup was delicious.
