This was my first visit to Bonnie Ruth’s. We had reservations but we still had to wait. The cost of Sunday Brunch is around $19. I enjoyed the entree offerings however I thought it was a little limited for the cost. They offered a variety of breakfast foods and they were very heavy in bakery type entrees like French toast,...

Booked an online special meal for Valentines. Also our anniversary. The staff, including the owner/manager. Liz, and wait staff made us feel so special and appreciated. The food was excellent and the ambiance was good.

Have heard good things for a while, but never went. The food was all good and the red velvet dessert was great. I had the shrimp skillet. It was good, but I would not order again although it had great flavor. Great dish if you are no-carbing it (just don't eat the garlic bread). Lots of shrimp in broth. Also... More

There are times when the food is excellent and times when the food is not very good. After a complaint, there was an apology and they did offer us another chance.

A very unorthodox group of choices for a brunch menu, good overall, staff was polite and decorated with a out of town feel, very Euro, not enough to choices for someone who likes variety, pastries are small but tasty, great coffee and tea selection. Would come back if not exploring other options around the Metroplex.

Good but not great French. They have a Sunday buffet that's really nice. Great selection breakfast items and French selections. The pastries and desserts are great! Try the Carrot Cake is my favorite. For dinner I like the Steak Frites with extra crispy French fries.

They have good baked goods and some of the other breakfast items were good to average. We went on a Sunday and paid for the buffet, which was around $19, for this price, I would have expected a little more. Breakfast in general is cheap food to make, and at that price I wouldn't have expected to get powdered scrambled... More

My husband and I went for a date night. I had high hopes, as I love french cuisine - not an easy thing to find in Texas it seems. The ambiance was one step higher than an Applebee's frankly. The TV on the wall did not add to the intimacy. Our server, while pleasant and efficient, had to write down... More

Step into the relaxed sophistication of an authentic Parisian bistro and sidewalk cafe. Bonnie Ruth’s Café Trottoir et Patisserie pays homage to the classic 'French Bistro'. Dine on Steak Frites, Moules Marnière, and Duck Leg Confit. Sip a classic cocktail at our Belle Époque style bar. Join us for Sunday Brunch and eggs benedict on the patio near the fire place, handmade blueberry cream cheese crepes under the rotunda by the fountain or an omelet with a mimosa in the sun.

"The vibe is undeniably French A starter of moules Marnière was served in a daunting cast-iron skillet, where dozens of plump Prince Edward Island mussels lay tumbled in a bath of butter, garlic, white wine and lemon juice. The seafood was fresh and firm, just barely infused with the essence of the fragrant broth that surrounded it. Another stunning entree was the skate Grenobloise."
