We decided to try this place after living here for 12 years.Now we know why no one who lives here goes there.....it is terrible.Coq Au vin was chicken thighs in a canned sauce and the beef dish was inedible-had to send it back.No French bread and soggy salad.

Great authentic chocolate mousse,and excellent croque Monsieur . You may even have the opportunity to practice your French if you are lucky enough to meet the owners,who are from France. He greets and seats, she is the chef.

Had lunch outside which is very nice on a warm day. The food was good and prepared well. We would go back again.

I come here often but the last couple of visits have been less than acceptable. This time hair in the soup and then being accused of it being ours. A croque Madame rushed un toasted with grade B ham. Slow and inconsiderate service. Just the facts. No exaggeration.

I never would have thought I would find authentic french food in Fort Myers Florida in the middle of an outlet mall. Everything we had was delicious. The people serving were lovely and helpful in recommending various dishes. I have eaten in France and the chef is the real deal. The whole family wiped their plates clean with the delicious... More

I was extremely disappointed with this restaurant. I was pretty hungry and decided to sit down and eat and thought it'd be pretty safe to go with the chicken sandwich. I don't write terrible reviews i love to write great ones so people know where to appreciate but I can't understand how this place stays in business. It didn't take... More

The meal we had (for 4) tasted great, the service was very nice and the cost was reasonable. No complaints at all.

We decided to try this place for dinner having walked past it many times. The food was okay. The facility needs to be updated. One would think that a "quaint French bistro" would have nicer decor. The plastic checkerboard table cloths just don't add to the atmosphere. The crepes were a bit "heavy". The service could be better and a... More

Great food, great service and nice French flair, however when presented with check I paid with cash (more as courtesy to to individual ownership) and a lady picked up the check and cash from table and never returned. The amount of cash was about 30% higher than the bill and clearly, I think she believed I was a non-local tourist... More
