“Good food - bad service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

The food was very good, but unfortunately the service was bad, we were ignored and got things we didn't want and was expected to pay for. A pity.

“Our favorite French restaurant in Munich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Being a French living in Munich, I enjoy going to Le Faubourg for nice dinner and good wines. The room is a bit small and usually packed, but the food is excellent, and the selection of wines is very interesting.
I have to admit that the prices are not low, but actually worth the quality of food we get in.

“Good food, poor attitude of service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

We have used this restaurant on a few occasions and have always found the food to be very good.

(n:b highly seasoned meat, which is not too everyone's taste).

The latest meal here was good food again, but.....the service was poor and at the end of the meal the bill was somewhat of a joke. Aperol sprizz normally served with either white wine or prosseco had apparently been made with champagne, unbeknown to us, turning these normally 6/7€ drinks into 12€ a pop. This was an attempt to scam tourists which we are not, unimpressed and no longer going to use this restaurant.

Shame, but poor service and incorrect bills are inexcusable in a city with 1,500+ restaurants many of them excellent.

“Great food, surly service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

This restaurant was recommended to me by my brother, who described the meal as the best he had in Europe. I can only agree that the food was outstanding, easily one of the best meals I've had. Unfortunately the evening was somewhat marred by a very surly French waiter, who refused to speak anything but French (we're in Munich!), despite us saying German or English was preferable, who did not smile the entire night and was anything but welcoming. In fact, he gave the distinct impression he was offended by our non-French speaking presence! A second waiter was far more engaging with the guests, and we wished we had been served by him, instead. Despite the great food, it left an unpleasant taste in our mouths.
