“Great breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Pizza would probably be great here with the awesome wood fired oven in the middle of the place but we've only had breakfast here. It's also cooked in the wood fire oven. Couldn't be better! Fresh and delicious everytime. We like to sit where we can see the food prepped + slid into the oven. We also buy fresh bread to bring home.

“Service, Eh - Pizza, Delish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Hubby and I visited La Bicyclette while on a trip for our 10th anniversary trip. I researched and the restaurant received excellent reviews. So, I was excited the see the cute spot and eat the yummy pizza I had heard so much about. I made a reservation and once there, we were promptly seated. Unfortunately we waited a good 8 mins before anyone ever showed up for beverage orders. We had just gone to a wine tasting so all we wanted was water which is what we ordered when someone finally showed. They promptly brought the water and we waited another 10 minutes before they took our order. So, we were there close to 20 minutes before every putting in our meal order. Still, we ordered Pepperoni and Margherita pizzas along with a side salad. The salad and pizza did not disappoint and were quite delicious. I am glad we stopped by at least for the experience but they should probably work on the service.

“Great place for dinner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I love the atmosphere in this restaurant. We didn't make any reservation (AGAIN..should have do better planning next time) The host told us the next available seating will be about an hour and half later. We accepted it happily. They called us less than 30 minutes to come back.

Ordered the escargot for appetizer and Local Champignon pizza. Both taste great especially the pizza. We had couple beers to go with it. My fav beer with the Local Champignon pizza is the Chimay.
