It has been several years since I was at the French Market Grille. On a Monday evening there were only two tables seated at 7:00 PM. In years past I'm sure it would have been busier. Food seems to have stayed the same. There are other French restaurants that I would rather patronize.

We have been going to the French Market Grill for 20 years. Always a great experience. Last evening however was a complete disaster. The first indication was the restaurant was nearly empty, rare for a Friday night! Second didn't recognize any of the staff! When we placed our order almost all of the entrees were not available. The classic soups...no...the... More

We had a Groupon and so made a reservation for Friday night. It was remarkably quiet for a weekend, but that suited us just fine. We could not get cocktails because they only serve wine and beer. We had wine with our dinners, and the dinners were well prepared. My partner hD the duck confit and I had the rack... More

First of all you walk in and feel like something from at least 30 years ago. The decor, the tables, silverware, grease stench. The service was terrible. First the delivered the wrong plates to our table and immediately picked them up and delivered the to another table. The food was disgusting. It was so overcooked and tasteless. I got food... More

Was here a couple of years ago and not impressed. Returned recently to a pleasant surprise. Food and service was impeccable. The menu is varied with a wide range of choices, including the specials. Will return soon and often.

The food was ok but for those prices i could have eaten better at the cheesecake factory, the service was terrible! We were never offered anything to drink, and they never brought us more water. We were seated by the kitchen and it was too loud!

You'd think I would learn. I have come back to this place at least 4 times always hoping things might have improved. They never have. This is probably my last time. The food has never been more than average, and several times downright poor. The value isn't there either. Prices are above average especially for the quality of food and... More
