The luncheon menu is varied and the food excellent. The crêpes are particularly good. The place is very busy at lunch time and the waiters and waitresses have a hard time keeping-up with the demand. Nevertheless, the service was very good and gracious. It is hard to leave the place without taking home some of their delicious bread and pasties.

The food was ok. Great atmosphere, staff snobby. I would find another place to eat. I will not be going back. There are plenty of other places in Sarasota to go where you can get friendly service and it will cost less.

We had already had breakfast in our hotel (wish we hadn't as the breakfasts looked delicious here) but couldn't resist the delicious apricot croissants here and the coffee and service was great too. Sat outside on a lovely day - heaven.

C'est La Vie is one of my favorite spots. If you're in downtown Sarasota at coffee or lunch time, you can't go wrong here. It's the real thing - - very French in decor, attitude, and food. The baguette sandwiches, salads and omelets are great, and the pastries unbelievably delicious. You can eat inside or outside at one of the cafe tables on the sidewalk. The staff is predominantly French, and it shows in the efficient, business-like manner in which they run the place. The service is quick and French-like...a dab of attitude and no smiles. It's a charming spot, a little bit of France in the middle of the sea of sterile franchise restaurants throughout Florida.
