Writing reviews is not something I normally do but I'm compelled to write this in the interest of public safety! I am absolutely baffled as to how to this restaurant has ANY good reviews. We recently dined there with friends for what was advertised as "The Grand Festive Buffet" in celebration of Bastille Week and their 6th Anniversary. The delicious... More

My darling man and I have eaten here many times. It just the most lovely, special place! The food, the service and the warmth of Chauby and Igor make each meal special! Bastille Week 2014 was just so very excellent! Get there! It is the bomb!

We went there with the family of 7 for a birthday and it was like walking into a little piece of Paris. From the authentic French decorations to the real french waiters and our adorable French Hostess (owner) was like something out of a movie. She was friendly, funny, caring, knowledgeable and most of all charming. The Chef (owner) not... More

The Petit Snail is a superb and authentically French dining experience. You won't be disappointed. From the warm and hospitable hosts (I love being served by the owners), to the delectable and seasonal dishes, to the cute outfits and decor, everything is done to perfection. Bon apetit!

We are last night at this restaurant. It is out if the way of the general 'touristy' part of Byron, so relied to TripAdvisor reviews to choose to visit. We LOVED IT! The decor is so homely and - well French! - and we were very comfortable. The young French waiter was fantastic. I actually thanked him after I took... More

We had dinner here for my birthday and it was a fabulous experience. The food, wine and service were excellent and the owners were very friendly and came to chat to us at the end of our meal. A great birthday dinner!

I thought this restaurant was excellent. I held a dinner for 10 here and we were made welcome by the owners Chauby and Igor as well as the wait staff (Damien). The food was exotic and fabulous. It was a great night.

This is our favorite restaurant, it is like a trip to Paris for an evening, with the most welcoming service possible. We've been treated like family members from our first visit. It's a warming festive event every night and you'll hear singing and laughter from other guests. Our kids (4 and 1) both devour whatever is served like it was... More
