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.

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.

Food and service were excellent. However, we would not return without a certificate or coupon reducing our cost by 50%.

Went here for drinks on a weeknight whim. Was very pleasantly surprised! The bartender was very friendly and made some great martinis! It is a nice quiet place to have a drink and chat. Only downside was that the room was a bit chilly.

This review is from last June. We went there for our anniversary. It had always been one of our favorite local restaurants, and that is why I hesitated to write this review. We had patronized this restaurant for many years since, I believe, before it even used to be Clayton's. The service has always been impeccable, and the soft piano... More
