We waited 15 min in lobby while waitresses spin around us like clockwork. They knew what they were doing but no one cared what we were doing! Finally a hostess came in and asked if we had reservations. Too bad it took us 15 min to find their reclusive front door and another 15 min to find out we needed... More

You here french cuisine and sometime means expensive good food, not this time. They have good food, good drinks and good prices. We were on our way to Prosser and made a quick stop in Yakima to eat and someone recommended this place, we were there for happy hour and the stop was worth it.

We arrived for Sunday brunch and were immediately seated in the main dinning area where they project old films onto the wall. The bistro interior has a warm European charm and staff was attentive. I choose the Lamb sliders, which were meaty with cheese and bacon on a light butter bun and a side salad. As the french would say,... More

This used to be a great restuarant especially for Yakima. Sad to say not so anymore. Had what is my 'usual' garlic mushrooms, French onion soup,and the duck. The mushrooms were watery and bland. The onion soup was greasy. You used to be able to cut the duck barely touching it with your fork. I had to saw through it... More

We visited Yakima after just coming back from an extended food and wine trip in France. We were in Paul Bocuse in Lyon, Auberge d'Lill in Alsace, Chateau Levernois in Burgundy, Cafe Benoit by Alain Ducass in Paris and many more. The service here is just as good, the bartender was knowledgeable about the wine and was most accommodating. We... More

My wife and I recently discovered this place and have been in many times now. We have dined all over the valley and carousel is by far the best in town. We went there last night and they were packed! We sat in their main dining room and though it was a little loud because of all the people it... More

I can't believe all the five star reviews. And must sadly agree with the other one star reviews. We decided to try this restaurant, thinking it would be a nice romantic spot for a gourmet dinner. And instead it was just awful. Got seated next to a busy aisle leading to kitchen and bathrooms and sandwiched between two large noisy... More

A first visit for us. We were delighted! The morning sun made it easy to choose a table outside. The wait staff were prompt and attentive through out our stay. The strawberry crepes, the Eggs Benedict and the Brisket Scramble were perfectly prepared.

I am astonished to find a French restaurant in Yakima. Oh... The escargot, buttery, garlicky, heavenly, I was transported to heavenly excesses of gastronomic delight.... In Yakima.... Never, ever, expected to have escargot, frogs legs, shrimp with artichoke hearts with a cream fresche dill sauce and finished with a very nice French onion soup. The wine list was reasonable with...

We ate here once. That was all we needed. Never again. Service was terrible. Food was overpriced and unfortunately lacked freshness. With all the other choices to eat in Yakima I would definitely chose another dining option.
