I had been a customer here for 15+ yrs and always love their escargot for starter and either the maple duck breast or fish entrees. The restaurant now has the bistro menu - 2 items for $20 from a selection of starters, entrees or desserts....More

I booked this place for father's day because I hadn't planned ahead and all the Laguna hot spots were full. But what started as a second choice reservation wound up being a first class experience. The restaurant hadn't publicized their father's day brunch very well...More

Our family had our last 'foie gras' in this restaurant before the California ban was enforced. We were not disappointed. We tried other dishes and it's quite alright. They have great service and a very cozy ambiance.

My husband and i had dinner at French 75 last week. While the people watching in the lounge was great as was the piano player, the food was quite disappointing. I had the Scottish Salmon which was drenched in some sort of overpowering mustard sauce....More

This French & American bistro features contemporary renderings of classic bistro dishes such as escargot cassolette, shrimp Provençal and an off the grill selection for the classic American palate. The décor inside this 70-year old cottage that houses the bistro is rich and romantic, with intimate ambience. The charming bar offers an extensive selection of champagne cocktails and house made martinis; a mural on its ceiling depicts a “champagne war” between cherubs and monkeys holding bottles of champagne. Patio dining is also available in the Garden which sits directly on Pacific Coast Highway. They have Happy Hour from 4:30 to 6:30 PM nightly along with live entertainment starting at 7:00 PM. This is the perfect spot to spend on a date, for company dinners, or just a relaxing night away from your everyday life.
