We would love this restaurant to be good, as it is within walking distance of our home. We go there every now and again, hopeful that this time will be different, and have never failed to be disappointed that it does not live up to the potential of its warm, cozy ambiance. The menu rarely changes; the food is good... More

Perhaps, they were short on the veggies on Christmas Day. If not, why would you be so stingy with something as inexpensive as vegetables? There was just a bare hint of potatoes and zuchinni on the plate. And this was an expensive plate! Additionally, an appetizer plate had only two medium size scallops. Barely a taste. The service was wonderful... More

My husband and I love this place, both for special occassions and just a date night out. Always great food and a delightful setting.

I have loved this restaurant since they opened. It has been the place of many a family celebration and numerous special gatherings. Unfortunately, in the last two years, things have changed dramatically. For an expensive dining experience, the service is quite poor. Last week we had a reservation. Showed up ten minutes early and was repeatedly told by a server... More

Have been to this restaurant many times since we moved to Rancho Bernardo 8 years ago. It was my favorite until twice last year that we were disappointed with the food. We decided not to dine there anymore.. I thought perhaps the restaurant had different chef. However, we made new friends in our neighborhood who moved from other town and... More

While vacationing in the San Diego area, my wife and I decide to try the French Market Grille located in the Rancho Bernado suburbs. It wasJuly14th....Bastile Day and we were lucky to get one of the last tables out on their lovely patio. The server was great, but the waiting time between courses was prety long....I think their kitchen may... More

We wanted to try a place we have never visited and settled upon the French Market Grille. The location isn't the best but with plants, and the decor I wouldn't have guessed it is in strip mall if I hadn't drove there. The ambience is nice and you can sit indoors or on the patio. Even sitting outside, the strip... More

I found this restaurant on a site because it was close to a party I was attending. I needed a nice place for my Mother in Law's Birthday. She is very picky and I wanted something special. What we found was a quaint little place with food that was out of this world. My husband and I shared a top... More

This has been a gem in the rough (a gem, not a diamond) in regards to it's location. Look for the Sprouts grocery store and it is in that center. The restaurant is in dire need of remodeling. The patio is nice but the chairs are uncomfortable. The fireplace is nice on a cold evening. No booths and if a... More

Went to this restaurant with a group of friends for dinner but had a better experience on prior visits. Waiter was not very pleasant perhaps not happy with a large group. Soup was very salty as well as the sauce on the meat dish. I am used to french food having different spices and sauces but the salt flavor was... More
