La Cigale has gotten to be our 'go-to' destination for dinner and as a result we have been there many times. The food and service is consistently excellent. Francis, hands-on owner, has assembled a staff that he refers to as family and it shows from the moment you walk in the door. You immediately get the feeling that this establishment... More

Our dining experience was on a Thursday night - not very busy except at the bar. We were seated promptly and drinks and bread were served very quickly. We chose to select off the Summer Menu program. Great choice at an amazing value for all the courses. The service was very attentive and made for an enjoyable evening.

Needed a restaurant for my bestie's birthday, she asked me to pick somewhere we haven't been. This is a little off the main drag so I figured why not. Boy am I glad we picked this spot. Service was terrific, food was excellent. I had Foie Grais for my starter and it was as good as any I have had... More

First time back since they moved. Went to the old location years ago for dinner a couple of times and loved it. This trip was with my dad and sat at the bar for happy hour. Awesome small plates and good cocktails. Bartender was very friendly and helpful. Lots of regulars sitting at the bar early. I look forward to... More

Very friendly service from the entire staff. My strip steak was excellent and my wife enjoyed her fish dinner. Check restaurant.com for $25 off coupons. A bit pricey but worth the dining experience.

One of my favorite restaurants in the area is La Cigale on Federal Hwy. I had dinner there a few nights ago and was really impressed that the service is even better then my last review and the food has gone up a couples of notches. I had the whole Bronzini grilled Mediterranean style with a side of french fries... More

This is the second time we have dined at La Cigale. The first time was for a private party. We were impressed to the point that we decided to return for a table service dinner. There were eight of us in our party. Our reservation was honored and we were seated immediately upon arrival. The drinks we ordered were "full... More

Nice quite, great service. Dover Sole was very good and the Lemon burr blanc was delious. Creme burlee was excellent. We shared the French onion soup which was also very good. My husband had the snapper special but was not crazy about how it was prepared but it was still good. Very nice couples dinner

Solicitous service and delicious food in a special occasion atmosphere. Portions were not very small as one sometimes finds in a French restaurant. Only disappointment were the non-descript desserts. As it's al a carte I recommend soup or appetizer instead. Particularly on a weekend, reservations are essential.

We had an absolute first class experience and on a Saturday night at Brasserie La Cigale. I had the filet mignon and onion soup. My partner had a seafood appetizer and a seafood entree. A fabulous glass of Bordeaux suggested by our server topped everything off in a first class manner. The experience was expensive I agree but memorable!

La Cigale, a Taste of the Mediterranean has had a rebirth in downtown Delray Beach, Florida. Just south of busy Atlantic Avenue on Federal Highway you will be swept away to the sights and smells of the Mediterranean Coastline. Think of the French Riviera, Morocco, Greece, Italy and delight in the cuisines of each.
