People have told me about this place for years and I was interested in trying it out. I wasn't impressed with the food. It was good, but not good enough to warrant the price. I wasn't impressed.

A La Maison has always been one of my favorite restaurants for business and personal dining. We celebrated my daughter's engagement and many other happy occasions there. The last several times I have lunched there, the server has been unfriendly, snippy, matter-of-fact and bordering on rude. Believing that everyone is entitled to one or two (or more!) bad days, I...

Classic French food on the Mainline. The owner is a local man who is very involved in running the place. He is very generous with local community non profits donating his food to events. Try the wonderful cheese and home made pate plates. There are many perfect salads, soups and entrees. It is a BYO.

We ate at A la Maison Bistro for our wedding anniversary. The restaurant is delightful with twinkle lights in the window and candlelit tables. The mussels were the largest I have ever seen and served in a delicious garlic broth - truly a meal in and of itself. My husband also enjoyed his escargot. Our entrees were the lamb chop... More

It doesn't matter if you go to A la Maison for lunch or dinner. You're meal will always be cooked to perfection! The delicate layering of flavors, the soft music, relaxed atmosphere and other subtle touches transport you to France. The servers do not hover over you to rush you out the door, and there is no such thing as... More

It's a beautiful French-style restaurant in the center of Ardmore. Their food and service are excellent, with reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

Been there a few times since it opened several years ago. The menu is traditional French bistro, more or less. We found the service well-meaning but the staff were not particularly knowledgeable about the food. Nothing particularly good or bad, but from day one it felt sort of tired, and not good enough to warrant further visits when there are... More

Unexpectedly authentic. Bold flavors, traditional French cuisine, and a welcoming atmosphere. I really enjoyed lunch here, and I look forward to returning for dinner soon!
