“Fabulous!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

We love this place and have been here more than a half dozens times in the last ten weeks. Guy and Sylvia, owners, put their hearts and soul in the place and make sure everything is perfect in this 30 seat family run restaurant. Classical French dishes; and we have tried many of them on the menu and every one comes out in perfection. Here are our must-have favorites: warm goat cheese salad, white sausage in apple puree, lamb rack in rosemary sauce, almond crusted branzino and crepe suzette. We also love the lobster bouillabaisse (for two), frog legs (tasted like a cross between crab crawls and chicken wing stick, and should give a try if you have never had before), dover sole and chocolate tart. There are many sides to choose from and they are all wonderful. It amazes me how well Sylvia and their daughter take care of all guests with only 2 of them. You cannot get this quality and portion of food any where else at their prices. We will continue to come back here!

“nice spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

We literally stumbled over this place. Apparently we were quite lucky to get a table w/out a reservation in advance. Maybe being polite helps?? I think we just lucked into a cancellation. Anyway we were four and debating a last minute change of plans and thought we'd stop in here. The location/view are not ideal, but once inside we were hooked. It's charming- as are the staff. I think we met the owner, but I wasn't clear if he were the maitre 'd... It was busy and crowded and still charming. We shared everything and it was almost like being in Paris; Delicious, quirky, great wine, and a bit pricey. I'd go back.

“A Top Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Whenever we want to go someplace special this is our favorite restaurant. It is small and requires a reservation far in advance, but if you want authentic French cuisine this is where you will find it. You can order a fixed-price dinner or separate items. They also have good French house wines.

“Good French Dining in a Strip Shopping Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This was our third visit to French Corner Bistro. In the past I gave this restaurant an Excellent rating. This time I was a tad bit disappointed.

I realize that all escargot prepared in a restaurant start in a can. However, my most recent escargot appetizer seemed a bit more chewy and the sauce a bit less flavorful than experienced on past visits.

My duck in an orange sauce was good, but not great. However, the portion size was very good, and it was served crispy, as promised.

All the other guests in our party enjoyed their dinners. No complaints.

We enjoyed a very good and fairly priced Saint Emillion red.

We will certainly return when we are in town.

“Perfect & No Resaon to Go Some Where Else!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

We came here twice within a month since my last review. And we just made reservations for 2 more nights. That's how much we love this little place. Everything we have had is terrific! Our favorites are the rack of lamb, branzino, frog legs and crepe suzette. Wonderful folks running the place and they set high standards for themselves.
