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

I am sad to say this is strike 3 for Bon Femme. So, I venture back for a so-called quick dinner last night because I wanted crepes (note: for whatever odd reason BF decided that crepes are only a dinner item, very strange for a so-called French Restaurant) only to find the persistence of mediocrity in this former "go-to" restaurant....

We come here several times a year, the food is delicious and they have a nice selection of wine. It is beautifully decorated and a nice place to go for a special occasion. We always leave full and happy! The fresh French bread in the bread basket is = killer! YUM! We always order fish and it is very fresh.... More

The place itself is decorated very well. It has that upscale feel and look. It gives you a feel of an upscale restauarant in a large city. The service was over the top. Our server was friendly and on top of our needs. (if she is reading this review....my husband was concerned for my hair if we sat outside due... More
