“Bof... Very Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Do not expect anything special at this restaurant. The food is very average, the service is less than average and the overall experience is... very average! We went for breakfast at this restaurant. Lets's say the facts: as the name says it, this restaurant is owned by and designed for French Canadian snowbirds in the Hollywood/Hallandale area. Not sure if this restaurant is even open in the summer. So if you're not "part of the gang" people will be staring at you, literally. The food we got was not hot, not cooked as per ordered, but you get what you pay for. Not that expensive. The service... ouch! My mom was talking to her sister (in French) when the (French speaking) hostess came by and she waved her hand in from of my mom's face and said "Hey, Hello...". Let's say that the servers are not very "high class". Being French speaking myself, I was very disappointed by this place and not proud at all. Pass on this one. And no reservation, even if you are a group.

“Horrible restaurant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Horrible restaurant. Menu was pricy (7$ for only 3 little fajitas without meat!!), service was terribly slow and unpleasant, the server took a 30% tip on a 30$ bill without asking us. Will definitly not return.

“okay, but expected what?!not sure”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

I have never had Canadian food before, so I guess I was expecting something along the line of French cuisine. But that was definitely not what we got. Everything was blend, fried and lacking in some matter. On the good side it is very family friendly and the staff was very warm. But if your taste buds are craving yumminess, this is not the place for you.

“Anywhere but....frenchies”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

The place is hard to find but once you made it, you have to find a place to sit. People in there are looking at you like if you came from the moon or something. If you are not a member of the gang, you cannot sit in the restaurant where the band is. There is always somebody watching a place for somebody else.
If you sit on the other side, be prepare to wait and wait and wait, and if somebody shows up one hour after you and is known to the waiter, he will be served ahead of you.
Do not loose any time trying to go there, not worthed
