(Excellent) French Food in Topeka? Yes!

Not the anonymous, predictable food found at your average chain restaurant. If you want that, go out to Wanamaker. This is a small (maybe a dozen tables?) nicely-appointed restaurant located in a quiet neighborhood a few blocks west of Washburn University. The fresh French fare is delicious... read more

We love this little restaurant. It is difficult to believe that a restaurant of this caliber has survived in Topeka -- the fast-food capital of Kansas. Anyway, the service, cuisine, and ambiance are all wonderful. We eat lunch here at least once a week and have never had a meal we didn't enjoy. I can recommend all the entrees. When... More

The owners are very nice. We never felt rushed and we never waited too long for a course. The food is great. The calamari and escargot were the highlights of the night.

What a wonderful small French restaurant with the feel of Proveance. Lovely intimate restaurant in a neighborhood setting. The chef really understands French cuisine and executes to perfection! Just as in France, the dining experience at Chez Yasu is very relaxed and not rushed. A red and a white French wine are highlighted from Cotes. The white Grenache I had... More

Simple atmosphere, great service. Food did not disappoint. Went for lunch and the place was pretty busy, but the service was spot on. It feels cozy, like someone's house. Would definitely go back.

Been coming to this little French restaurant for many years. Never gets old. Enjoy turning others on to it. Most are surprised a place of this quality exists in Topeka KS.

Don't know much about French cuisine but the lunch we had is surprisingly affordable and good. The service is friendly and prompt. We order from the lunch menu: soup is fresh, and the special Martini for $7.95 is yummy. The beef tongue is tasty and the liver entree is tender. They are not big in presentation so just go and...

I should disclose that I have never been a big fan of French restaurant food served and I have never been to France. I went to Chez with some friends who were anxious to try this place. The mussels appetizer was great. The sole and sea bass entrees came out just as described, which was bland with butter lemon sauce.... More
