Somewhat cramped, but not so much that you're uncomfortable. The restaurant is nicely decorated and clean. My wife and I went for our anniversary and we were not disappointed. The waitstaff was extremely pleasant and helpful (this didn't match many of the bistros we went to in Paris). They were not only on their service game, but had an instinct... More

A perfect, quaint french bistro with great food, ambiance, service, and conducive to conversation. Try the tomato tarte, lamb shank, peach tart, and escargot.

Not really sure why people get flashbacks of France sitting in this restaurant. I've had the pleasure of visiting Paris and Nice. Bistrot La Minette left me feeling like being in a Disney-type restaurant where someone is trying really hard to give you the illusion of authenticity but failing. My wife and I went for dinner. The bread was okay... More

This charming French Bistro reminded all of us how much we missed Paris. Every course was impeccable. The Service was TOP Notch. We highly recommend this French restaurant for any of the items on the menu.

I had the duck and loved every single bite. Everyone else went with fish, and were also very, very happy with their choices. The ambiance is wonderful.

Enter this small but charming restaurant and you feel like you've crossed the Atlantic instead of the Delaware River. The service is impeccable (ask for Mike!) and the menu full of interesting and delicious options, reasonably priced. The four of us each enjoyed different appitizers and main courses and shared two desserts that were decadent enough for anyone! We would... More

We took my husband's mother here for Mother's Day and were all delighted with the service and meal offerings. My husband and I love the food we get in France and we enjoyed the authentic French menu and preparation at La Minette. Even my elderly mother-in-law who is an avid Italian food aficionado was totally blown away by how tasty... More

We love this restaurant- from the small, intimate dining room, to the food... You can't go wrong here. I love french cuisine, and you can tell this place knows what they're doing. Our waiter was very good and answered all of our questions with lots of information. I will be returning in the future!

It was a special occasion that brought us to La Minette, but this is the kind of place I would love to have right around the corner for a lot more frequent visits. While it's not cheap by any means, for what you get the prices are more than fair. Food preparation is of the highest order -- I was... More
