My first meal at the French Bulldog was a mostly-positive experience; a mixed bag of good cocktails, excellent appetizer, excellent main course, muddled with obnoxiously loud music and pokey service. I had the grilled striped bass. A risky maneuver in a restaurant you've never tried...More

At first we did not like this place after it became the French Bulldog, but I have to say they have improved so much. Love the Cheese Plate, crab cakes etc. Very good. Nice atmosphere in down town Camarillo.

This is such a fun place. Chef Gael brings his charm and passion to his own space, beautifully decorated with a fun bar scene. Can't wait to take a group back and share the Chef's Table room!

They have a great bar and the scene or vibe is cool. The service was a bit slow. The menu is kind of different and the choices are limited. I could not find anything I wanted.
