This restaurant gives you a real French atmosphere and menu. Excellent service and delicious food. Our only disappointment was the classic roasted duck, which was tough and dry. All other courses were wonderful, and we'd come back.

I spend 48 weeks a year on the road, and a couple of those are in great "foodie" cities. BUT, when I want the best food, the best service, and the best meal, I come home to Saint Emilion in Fort Worth. Barnard Tronche runs a world class restaurant in a welcoming atmosphere with food that defies description. The selection... More

This classic French restaurant is always a special occasion destination but on Tuesdays & Wednesday nights it's Bistro Night. A 3-course; appetizer, main & dessert for only $25 + a French bargain bottle of wine for $18 makes this a great way to experience all the ambiance of St Emilion at a real value. Bistro features the best of the... More

We treasure the fact that a jewel like St Emilion is in our back yard. Well prepared meals with the highest quality products.

We chose this resturant due to so many positive review and went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The resturant is located in a house and lacks any internal heating. We were seated near one of the door which remains closed all the time. There was no internal heating and we were freezing. I had to put on my winter coat... More

I have been visiting this restaurant since 1987, and, when I get to Ft. Worth, would not think of missing it. The excellence remains and, in fact, just gets better. Great service and excellent classic French dishes. If you want to indulge, this is the place.

Nine of us in the upper room was perfect for talking. Two more would be the limit without feeling jammed in. I had Hendricks gin with tonic, apps of scallops and snails in bread, and a main dish of venison. Others had wine, Dover sole and duck. I would not recommend snails, but I don't like snails. the scallops are... More

We had 9 adults. Upstairs Room very comfortable. Could take two more before crowded. Stairs are steap. Main food recommendations sound. One person thought venision a little dry. 3 thought it was right. Bill was not itemized. Waiter solicitous but some items slow to get up the stairs like coffee and extra bread. My suggestion is order what you want.... More

Great atmosphere, good location but the food is somewhat lacking in authenticity. Not bad, just not the French flavor I've had at other French restaurants in the DFW area. The La Soupe A L' Oignon les Halles lacked the dash of wine flavor, was luke warm and the cheese was over done. The Les Escargots A La Bourguignonne were a... More

The restaurant seems to cater to the early prix fixe crowd. Beware the classic menu. Their "signature" duck (3 portions) is so tough that even with a steak knife it was inedible. Ditto the spinach, saturated in so much vinegar it had to be thrown out. Deserts are overly sweet. A heavy, unsophiscated hand is cooking here.
