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."

Mussels are great

Most items we have tried are very good but a favorite is the skillet of mussels. Also the lamb lollipops are great as well.

My husband and I with another couple went to their Sunday brunch and it was GREAT. They have a good variety that would please anyone's palette. When it came time to desert everyone at our table got something and my DH said aren't you going to get anything. I said no, really was hoping for something with coconut. Evidently a... More

We go to Bonnie Ruth's quite a lot. We always like the food. They have a nice wine and martini list. In the summer they have a really nice patio that is partially enclosed so it doesn't look out into a parking lot. It is real nice.

Have frequented this establishment many times. Food is generally quite good, however there have been several occasions where the service could be better.

I love the food, great bar and desserts! Typical French flavorful food; Steak, chicken, fish...can't go wrong with any of the entree selections. Great patio!

We go to this restaurant all the time not only for the food, but for the atmosphere! Both are outstanding. The Chicken Pillard is bar far one of my favs'

Lovely inside patio with fireplace that is ideal for that first cool night of the year. On Monday nights, they serve a burger for $5 that is wonderful. Excellent beef patty with all the trimmings and a pre-meal martini that is also $5. Great value for a casual meal OR come on any other night and experience a wonderful French... More

Greetings Everyone, Last week I took my wife to an 'adult lunch' for her birthday. You know, the meal where we don't have to be umpiring, coaching and executing medic actions for our toddler/pre-teen & teen while attempting to enjoy a meal. ;-) We have dined at Bonnie Ruth's a few times previously, and were please with the food, environment...

We really like the first Bonnie Ruth's. This was our first visit to the new franchise (The store is owned by other people that the original Bonnie Ruth's). The atmosphere is very very good, and the service was excellent. The clammari was great. But the rest of the fod was just a small notice below the original BR Cafe. That... More
