It was my Birthday...My family rented a beautiful limo, and whisked me away from New Jersey to Philadelphia. I watched he scenery go by, sipping Champagne, and suddenly was dropped in front of the rather unimposing facade of a little restaurant with a charming French name. When we walked through the door I was magically teleported to Paris, From the... More

I admit I'm a sucker for ambiance française, but Peter Woolsey's place gets a gold star. Maybe having a French wife and going to France often helped him acquire all the je ne sais quoi "stuff" that gives the small room the authentic flavor of an actual restaurant situated across the pond. In New York, I'm accustomed to hearing French... More

As soon as you enter the door, it's like being in Paris. The decor, the ambience and the staff are the same. It's very comfortable. The staff is experienced, professional and charming. The bar and wine line are excellent, highly selective and very french. The cuisine is of course french and every dish the four of us ordered was wonderful.... More

We made a grand entrance into the restaurant through dark heavy drapes designed to keep out the cold. To me, passing through those drapes was like time travel to turn of the century Paris or the set of "Midnight in Paris." I can't say enough about authenticity of the ambience. The food was outstanding in every way. Two of us... More

We were actually searching for another brunch spot when we decided we were too cold to continue walking and decided to pick the next closest spot. Bistrot La Minette was in eye sight so we popped inside. We really had no idea what to expect. The waiters were very friendly and attentive. The items on the menu were very different... More

We had never been to Bistrot La Minette before so we decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did. The food was wonderful with an interesting combination of ingredients with great flavors all coming through in each dish. Our server was informative and very pleasant. She made sure that we had what we needed without being... More

Restaurant was warm and inviting on a cold winter evening. Service was excellent and the food was outstanding, from soup to dessert. The winter root vegetable soup and trout with lemon brown butter and almonds were my favorites but the other guests were all very pleased with their meals. Our table of four could easily fit six which is a... More

I always forget to review places in my own hometown but I need to add a shout out to Bistrot La Minette. Everything here is delicious and the service is always excellent. I love the special menu dinners with wine pairings. They inspire me to try new wines and discover new regions. It's cheaper than a trip to Paris, and... More

This was my 3rd time dining at Bistrot La Minette. Each time the food has been wonderful, but I am very disappointed with the service. My husband and I went out to celebrate his birthday. I called ahead to ask if I could bring in his favorite cake. I was told, "yes" that will not be a problem, only to... More
