I am planning to live in Valparaiso and certainly would cheer for any local, good restaurants. Bon Femme has a small town feel serving enlightened and well travelled clientele.
While service is friendly it lacks polish and attention to details, pricing is reasonable and the ambiance is quaint. All is OK until menu concept and its execution. Bon Femme is no more French than I am Turkish. Few items remind you and makes you hopeful that there will be some European authenticity but unfortunately they come short. There are some very simple and honest Provencale items that would be so easy to execute and differentiate the restaurant from others in the town center.

Atmosphere, selection both drink and food menus was great, service is superb and the food is wonderful. A very intimate little bistro in Downtown Valparaiso...a nice place to visit! Great restaurant for couples and friends to get together for a great meal.

My typical meal here consists of two salads. I've eaten all over the country and this is the restaurant I think has consistently provided the absolute best salads. The Bibb lettuce melts in your mouth. The Granny Smith Apples are just right. The seasonal variations are all delicious. The main course meals are also a delight but not as extensive as other restaurants. But that's OK. With a shorter menu, you know you're getting excellently prepared meals done to perfection. There's even outdoor seating on Lincolnway to make your downtown Valpo experience all the more communal. One of the best places in Valpo as far as I'm concerned.

Who would have guessed such a fine restaurant existed in Valparaiso? Live piano music, quiet enough to have conversation, terrific service, and dynamite food - can't get much better than that. My dish (a Mediterranean veal dish) was full of flavor and not too heavy. My friend, who has lived in Europe, felt that his dish, a strip steak, was cooked to perfection. Friendly, attentive service made the meal memorable. Don't miss it if you're in the area.
