This is the place to go for fine French food at reasonable prices. Lunch special is highly recommended and is real value for money. Outside of the specials, the three or two course set menu is still quite reasonably priced considering the quality.

The service is always friendly and efficient. We have been going there since it opened in the mid 90s. The food is well presented. The rolls they bring to start the meal are outstanding. The menu is a little heavy on shell fish that we prefer not to eat, but there is always plenty of other items on the menu.... More

I guess there will always be detractors to any place. You can't please them all nor should a place try to. For me Sesame Grill has been a consistent place to dine albeit not as frequent as i would like. Chris and Joyce go out of their way to make one's dining experience enjoyable. The bread is to die for.... More

Was not expecting what I found. Had heard good things about it, but did not expect the French flavor. Food is great, atmosphere is casual, menu is pretty extensive. Sampled a couple of appetizers, mains and desserts. All great flavor and well prepared. Prices are reasonable for the quality of the food. This extends to the wines they offer. Service... More

W E L L I am so glad they did!!! Small, but with linen table cloth and napkins. And attentive, friendly... More

We went at lunch time and ordered from the set lunch menu which you can find pretty good combination of choices and worth the money.The atmosphere is quiet.

It's been a while since my wife and I went to this restaurant. We don't get to Arcadia that often, but the Sesame Grill is definitely a place to stop and let the traffic taper off. That's what happened to us the other night. I've always enjoyed their seafood, but this time they had a special on rib eye steak... More

Torn between two restaurants and opted for Sesame Grill for a different choice. Disappointed. Walked in as a solo and was promptly seated in the emptiest section of the restaurant - all but forgotten! Decided on the Chilean sea bass. Salad was crisp and not overly dressed. 20 minutes passed before anyone checked on me. Another 20 minutes and the... More

Walked into this restaurant to have a Chinese Dinner, but were we surprised to find a gourmet French Restaurant. Chose the Fixed Price Menu. It had lots of choices, the staff was very attentive and willing to bring something else when we didn't like what we chose. Incredible fresh baked French bread! What a wonderful surprise and a fantastic meal.

This restaurant opened during the early 1990s when I was traveling to the area a few times a month and I'd usually eat there once a trip. It's been over a year since I was there last, but it hasn't changed very much from its original style and cuisine. It's what's now called "Asian-Fusion." Food was always good and nicely... More
