“The best ambiance!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

The decor of Cafe Touche was honestly what sold me on this restaurant. It was decorated for the holiday's when I dined there and it was just stunning inside. It reminds me of what all little French bistro's should look like. The menu however was a bit surprising given the perhaps more elegant scale of the restaurant. I hadn't expected to see burgers and fries on a French bistro menu. It perhaps wasn't well thought out. My meal however, was excellent. The escargot was perfectly cooked and I had the vodka ravioli as an entree with a side of green beans. Everything was excellent. The busboys were very attentive and we never lacked for empty water glasses and plates were cleared away instantly. I would definitely return!

“Oui!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Everything was lovely- the decor, the service, the lighting, and the food was excellent. Four different people ordered four different entrees - 2 beef, one chicken and one fish- and we all were most pleased. And the prices are very reasonable. In a city where it seems that 75% of restaurants are Italian, this French bistro is a gem.

“A great Friday night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

Thought the menu was great. Escargot was very good. Ordered the 1/2 duck. Not sure if this duck came from Chernobyl, but the 1/2 duck had 2 legs. Sauce & wild rice were great. Duck was good. Disappointed with the French wine selection. Would have loved an'05 Bordeaux but their wines were all way too recent. Had a 2009 Bordeaux, those are barely even drinkable or bottled now. It was good but a nice French restaurant should have a better wine selection. Overall, thoroughly enjoyed it.
