Good Service, decent environment but price is steep

The brunch came highly recommended and so we liked to try, especially with their great patisseries. Due to The recommendations, my expectation was very high for this restaurant. Their brunch menu had some great entrees such as mussels, freshly made omelette etc... However, I was surprise to see... read more

We have dined here many times. Love the courtyard for outdoor dining and the desserts are great. Good menu in general. But the chronic issue here is the inconsistent customer service. Sometimes it's fine but it's never great. And more often than not the service is fair to poor. Sometimes ruining the entire dining experience. They have the potential to... More

The location is great! It's beautiful inside and nice indoor and outdoor seating. The Sunday Brunch is terrible!! Don't go on Sunday. The service is poor, the place gets packed, and the buffet leaves MUCH to be desired! It's an ok place to go for a few drinks and light food or dessert during the week. Stay away from the... More

This is the 4th or 5th time we've had lunch here, only the second time we ate inside. The patio was "4 degrees cooled than hell." Like our previous visits, the food was excellent and the service impeccable. No hovering waitstaff or being rushed to finish our meal. We have different menu items each time we visited and the were... More

This restaurant tries very hard to be French and is getting close to the real deal. Their patisserie is excellent for example and the creme brulee I had came also close to one I once had in Paris. Of course Frisco is not Paris, oh well. On Monday evening they offer bar food which is a selection of their standard... More

I eat here often and am always pleased. I love the Steak Frites and rarely order anything however my wife is always pleased with the other menu items. They have a great Sunday brunch with many fine fares.

My husband and I have dined at Bonnie Ruth's at least 20 times.....and have never been disappointed. Our favorite time is 4:00 p.m. during the week when good weather beckons. The patio is shielded in between buildings, and is filled with plants, cooled by fans and shaded with umbrellas (just in case).....cozy and intimate. We've tried many dishes (sandwiches, pizzas...

We were in town visiting and went here for Fathers Day Brunch. Best food selection, the Eggs benedict were #1, well tied with the Mussels. I had their chicken salad, also, it was a perfect blend of spices. Can't wait to go visit again I will be going here first thing. Thanks
