This meal wasn't what we expected at all. The menu has changed and we didn't see much that appealed to us. They ran out of salmon and cod. When we received the fish dinner, it was too salty. Would not recommend this restaurant.

We stayed in the songbird prairie bed and breakfast and had a voucher to visit this restaurant. The food was delicious, absolutely wonderful. But where they really stood out, above and beyond, was their wonderful service. They were attentive and made sure our visit was perfect. I would highly recommend this cafe to any!

Excellent menu with selection of french and french fusion type dishes. Servers friendly and able to make suggestions based off palate preferences. For example we were told that the meatloaf was good but it was "savory" with some customers commenting on a saltiness that she wanted us to be prepared for. We enjoyed our appetizer of grilled romaine with caesar's... More

Burger was hard and salty, fries were cold and hard. Crab cakes were just ok. Second time eating there. Never again. People think they can just slap some frozen products on the grill and it'll be great. Very wrong.

Elegant atmosphere, wonderful wine selection. Food is always fresh and tasty. From the French onion soup to the salads or fish..full of flavor. Presentation is colorful, prices are fair, deserts and coffee are the best!

I met friends here for dinner on a Friday night. The small restaurant was fairly empty when I arrived but quickly filled up. Service was fine, the somewhat small menu was fine, and the food was excellent. Some entrees are a bit pricy but most are not, and whatever you get, it's worth what you paid! A good beer and...

The Service here was not good. Our server blamed her bus boy multiple times for the issues, very awkward. We ordered the crabcakes, they were not crisp. Decent flavor. Both salads, grilled Caesar and Caprese were very good. The bananas Foster crêpe dessert was good as well, but very boozey. The alcohol did not cook off well. Overall average dinner,... More

My wife and I were looking for a restaurant in downtown Valpo for lunch. We knew that Bon Femme may be a little pricey, but that was not a consideration. We wanted a quiet place where we could enjoy a quality meal. Arriving about noon, we found street parking within a block of the restaurant. We were met promptly and... More

The overall appearance of this restaurant is (yawn) tired. Looking more like a boring ladies lounge, the restaurant is just plain a snooze. The food is good however. Service is attentive. The entire management needs to relearn the old adage that the customer is always right. Not accepting a coupon is rude. Then making us feel bad for using a... More
