“Our Favorite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012

This is our Valentine's Day restaurant! Their escargots are amazing!! Steaks are perfect and my husband loves their duck dishes! They have many different salads that come together beautifully! The lobster bisque is wonderful and desserts are out of this world! All in all, a wonderful place to go for a special occasion or just anytime you want great food!

Food is truly outstanding as is the service - be prepared to pay for it though.

“Great French Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2012

Having never eaten at a French restaurant, I was pleasantly surprised by this place. All of the food was absolutely incredible! They put a place of leaves in front of me and I ate it and then they put asparagus with my steak and I ate it, and it was all tasty. Great service. This is just a top-notch restaurant, and downtown RI is lucky to have it.

“French-American food at its best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2012

Le Figaro is a gem hiding in Rock Island, Illinois. My wife and I go there every year for our anniversary and try to get there at least one more time throughout the year. The food is tremendous, the service impeccable and the dining room is very comfortable. Start off your dinner with Coquilles St. Jacques (scallops in creamy white wine sauce) or the escargots...both very delicious. Their steaks are succulent and flavorful, especially accompanied with Le Figaro's mouth-watering Bearnaise sauce. I especially like the Chateaubriand (a huge filet mignon for two) that is carved right at your table. God, is that good! They also have great desserts and a fine wine list. And...they are reasonably priced for such a fine dining experience. You can't go wrong eating at Le Figaro.

“Five Star Dining in Midwest Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2011

Le Figaro is a four/five-star experience in Rock Island, Ill. Lovely French restaurant with other non-French offerings, but always superb food (chateubriand for one or two is to die for!), hearts of palm appetizers, bearnaise sauce, and an array of wonderful desserts (try the ice cream in a cream puff with drizzled chocolate -- luscious!) White linen tablecloths, uniformed waiters, lovely ambience -- and NO obnoxious music piped in! An evening of culinary delight. We travel 180 miles, round trip, to dine there, but it's well worth it. Evening hours are tues-sat 5-10 pm. I don't think they open for lunch. They've been there a long time and the owner IS French!
