this place is very unassuming on the outside, but wow, the food is amazing! this was recommended by someone who knows the area and it was fantastic. the food is french, but with a lighter california twist. really just a beautiful meal. if you are in the area, have dinner here, don't know if they are open for lunch, but go here if you can! and the service was just as good as the food. very friendly, unpretentious. its not cheap, but i don't think anything in california is.

Good ingredients, i opted for the Truite dish on their menu, and my wife the salmon special, but both the salmon and trout were overcooked. A pity as this restaurant was recommended as the best in Occidental. In fact our salad at the pub the previous evening was cheaper and just as good.

Dining at Bistro Des Copains with friends was absolutely wonderful. Occidental is a bit off the beaten track but therein lies its charm. The building is unpretentious but inviting. Our server was gracious, accommodating, and knowledgeable. The wine list featured offerings from Sonoma County at very affordable prices and the food (steak-frites and escargot) simply was every bit as good as that found in France. Bistro Des Copains provided a most perfect and quintessential northern California dining experience.

Food quality to price was about right. Everything was cooked to perfection. Loved the daily desserts and would have tried the daily specials but there were too many great choices on the main menu. No bread was served as in a typical bistro but generous portion made me begin to forget it wasn't there. Wine list is reasonable and has a unique selection of French and California wines. Only negative comment was the service. It was obvious who the locals were and they seemed to get more attention from the server staff. Be sure to make reservations. Restaurant really fills up from 7.00pm onward.

OK, maybe a little more than burger joint prices- but totally charming, excellent food. The place is small- so be sure to make reservations in advance.
