Classic French Bistro

Uptown Kingston - Old Dutch Church, Courthouse, offices and old buildings... but classic french food I never thought would be there. But here it is.

Stopped in with my wife for lunch with my wife. We were seated by a friendly waitress. As always she was well versed in the daily specials. I had their onion soup, always good. The special pork tenderloin was great and my wife was equally impressed with her dish. Definitely a keeper!

I'm not from Kingston or the surrounding area...so my opinion is not as biased as the rest of the reviews. That said....this place is just fantastic. Having been here on many occasions, I have also found that the consistency is always there. He used to have a place in the Albany area, but it just didn't work out. I'm still... More

If I could give this six stars I would. Been here about five times for lunch and it's always outstanding. Last time I had a veal scallion special that was delightful. Had as I often do the cognac snails as an appetizer and I followed everything up with an almond tarte pie. Each time I've been here I had something... More

It doesn't get much better than this. Jean-Jacques and his crew offer up a daily selection of freshly prepared French cuisine, with daily specials for lunch on weekdays which are often half the normal price but offering the same full-plate proportion. And don't forget to try their homemade desserts. They service many of the leading hotels and restaurants in Manhattan... More

Old world French cuisine. Chef has mastered the art and creates masterpieces. Serving size is above average for french food, but the deserts are both generous and magnificent . Highly recommend. Had eaten here at least 6 times.

Good French style bistro. I've had very good meals and meals that were less than that, but still fine. Nice atmosphere.

I eaten at the restaurant many, many times over the years. I had lunch a few weeks ago with my wife and we shared a Cassoulet. It was just what it should have been, preserved duck legs, sausages, lamb, beans, piping hot and truly delicious! The time before that my wife and son and I had our traditional Christmas Eve...
