Description: Step into the relaxed sophistication of an authentic Parisian bistro and sidewalk cafe. Bonnie Ruth’s Café Trottoir et Patisserie pays homage to the classic 'French Bistro'. Dine on Steak Frites, Moules Marnière, and Duck Leg Confit. Sip a classic cocktail at our Belle Époque style bar. Join us for Sunday Brunch and eggs benedict on the patio near the fire place, handmade blueberry cream cheese crepes under the rotunda by the fountain or an omelet with a mimosa in the sun. "The vibe is undeniably French A starter of moules Marnière was served in a daunting cast-iron skillet, where dozens of plump Prince Edward Island mussels lay tumbled in a bath of butter, garlic, white wine and lemon juice. The seafood was fresh and firm, just barely infused with the essence of the fragrant broth that surrounded it. Another stunning entree was the skate Grenobloise."

Service is ok. Rations are small and pricy. Desserts were good and several to choose from. Drinks are pricy like most bar places. Its a neat hang out but needs to have more vsriety of appetizers.

We eat here frequently as it is a neighborhood bistro. Excellent lunch faire. Dinners great too. Recommend shrimp in a skillet, dip bread in sauce. Steak and frites wonderful, as is salad with drunken pears. If you want to have quiet dinner conversation, ask to be seated on right-hand side of restaurant. Right side houses bar and music is too...

My husband and I had brunch after church and loved the lively atmosphere, attentive staff and the variety of food. Loved the chicken pesto pasta, best I've had and I am not a fan of pesto but I had several servings. The bread pudding is awesome! Can't wait to return.

My husband and I enjoyed a nice lunch on the patio yesterday. The service was fantastic. We have a young gentleman as our waiter and he was very polite, quick, and nice.

Had been to Bonnie Ruth's when it first opened and was looking forward to a delicious breakfast buffet on Sunday with the family. Sadly it was crowded, hot, and the food was unexciting....just mediocre. Very disappointing. Don't think I'll journey north again.

Great take on a Cassoulet with fantastic Duck Confit. Strange name for french fare but all parties loved their food on the night. Not an easy feat. Great pork shank and salad. Fantastic cheeses and good cocktails

This is a favorite place for French style country cooking. My wife had the mussels cooked in white wine and garlic. From the appearance of the empty bowl it was a hit. The tuna app not so much, only 5 small slices. Dinner was good. The lamb pop was excellent and the burger was ok. Save room for desserts they... More

Went with my daughter-in-law and my grandson for lunch and had a lovely time. Fabulous sandwiches, soups (we had the chicken portabella soup -- probably the best soup I've ever eaten!) and salads and nice combo plates for lunch. My grandson's child's grilled cheese was big enough for him to have for three meals!
