I have lived in the area for 5 years and just tried this restaurant for the first time this year. Their crepes are fantastic and my husband had a wild game platter that was very interesting and different. I will definitely be going back!

We used to live in the area but I never tried this place. My wife raved about it so we stopped in on my recent business trip. Started with escargot, which was pretty good, not the best I've had but close. I prefer a bit more garlic. The bread was great soaked in the extra butter! I had the kobe... More

We ordered the chefs salad and the La Cajun crepe which we shared. Both salad and crepe are substantial being served on 18 inch plates. The La Cajun was stuffed with meat and shrimp. The sauce for the crepe was a tad salty but the chef's salad was fresh and served with fresh strawberries.

We have eaten at L'Eiffel 4 or 5 times over the past 18 months. Food has been consistently good. Portion sizes vary widely based on what is ordered. Some entrees arrive a la carte. Others may come with a salad +/or side vegetable. The seafood crepes are very good as are the shrimp and scallops with black pasta. We can... More

Tried this restaurant last Friday. We found the food to be very good. I had the Hanger Steak with Burgundy Sauce. I ordered it medium, and it was cooked to perfection. My only wish would have been if it were made known that in addition to the burgundy sauce (served on the side, yay!) it was also going to come... More

Very nice Happy Hour specials $6 wine and food / $4 beers in the bar area. Food selection wasn't great but well. Wine selection was not limited to one or two low grade selections, all of the wines by the glass were available. Hope they keep it up.

Our family was celebrating a birthday and decided to dine here for dinner. The restaurant was not that busy; however, service was slow. It took quite a bit of time for our drinks to arrive. Mine was made wrong so they politely took it back. It was served to me in the same glass as I recognized my lipstick. Appetizers... More

Hear what happened next, we got credit card statement and the amount we have paid was different on the statement. You can ask why, the... More

This is the second time I visited this restaurant. The first time was a dinner around Christmas time a year ago; the mussels was excellent and I also enjoyed the cold vegetable soup. However we found the entrees to be an uneven experience. The second time we went there for their brunch. Their La Complete breakfast crepes come with some... More
