“Child and dog friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Tasty food, reasonable prices and excellent service. The waitress was very tolerant of my demanding and fickle 8 year old niece, and there is an authentic French feel to the restaurant. The terrace in the summer is a great place to dine and people watch and my well-behaved yellow lab was allowed to sit with the rest of the family, under the table.

“Uncommonly good French food for commoners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

While the bakery is really good, do not overlook the bistro. We had dinner on a Friday night at the casual bistro. Serving more commoner food than haute cuisine, the prices are reasonable for high quality food. My rating does not consider traditional, high-end French cuisine or Noveau French.

Atmosphere: bakery in front with adjacent tables in a decor reminiscent of french country. Also an outdoor seating area by the front door.

Food: soups were house made and showed good depth and texture (tried the french onion and the vegetable); the house made croutons and freshly grated cheese were on the side to add for your taste; beef burgundy was terrific with the melding of flavors that only come with sufficient stewing time where you taste beef the strongest but the wine and veggies are clearly present; the l'Etouffe had lots of seafood in a light vegetable sauce; the heavier portion of the entrees was creamy mashed potatoes in a fresh puff pasty shell; the mac and cheese (macaroni with three cheeses) was smooth in texture and generous in portion; of course the bread accompanying the meal was from their bakery and was great with the soup and the sauces in the entrees; the french fries, or Pomme Frites, were definitely the French-style twice fried being light, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside

Dessert: fun was walking to the bakery to select dessert; the Napoleon was excellent with a very good custard filling and light, flaky pastry; the tart was really good with a firm, shortbread crust with custard and fruit; tea was served in a 3-cup French press

Service: friendly, knowledgeable, prompt; also the chef checked on us about halfway through our entrees

Cost: $25-30 per person with soup, entree, dessert, beverage, tax, & tip

“French flavors than inspried Jeni Britton Bauer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

I remember when this great [lace first opended and for the first time we could enjoy great baguettes and croissants for the first time in Columbus, harkening back to beautifully offerings we fell in love with on the East Coast. Quiches and sandwiched are etop notch and their soups are flavorful with great body.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

I just love french food. Hard to decide what to order - everything looks fresh and delectable. The salads are super but I caved to some kind of croquette.
