“cuisine française est délicieuse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

We were seated by Chef Guillaume and service was excellent. We began with the mussel appetizer (one of the house specials that evening). We enjoyed the Steak Frites (chuck tenderloin and pomme frites) and Seared Salmon (glazed served with kale and mushrooms and spaghetti squash and potato cake. The room was quiet (we were the first diners of the evening) and by the time we finished dining, the room was filled with people experiencing the fine French dining. We will return soon.

“Just plain good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

Came here based on trip advisor comments and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Food is well prepared and very tasty (farm to table concept with farms listed on the back). Really nice staff, easy bistro dining room. Finished with an amazing Chocolate Espresso Pot de Creme which was to die for. It was "perfect"

“Total joy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

We like French restaurants but didn't know what to expect in traverse city,

Thus we were pleasantly surprised by the menu, the service and the food.

Everything we ate was excellent!

“Great meal, great wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

My brother, his girlfriend, and I had dinner at Bistro Fou Fou after a day of wine tasting on Leelanau peninsula. It was a perfect end to our day with delicious food and a wonderful wine selection. Our little group consisted of a pescatarian, vegetarian, and gluten-sensitive person so finding a place that we all loved was impressive! I had a beet salad and scallops, both we're wonderfully prepared and delicious (I highly recommend the scallops! They were divine.). My brother had salmon and his girlfriend the vegetable strudel, both thoroughly enjoyed their dinners.

The wine selection is also very good. We ended a day full of Michigan wines with an excellent french wine that was a perfect cap to our day. Just for the ability for everyone to find a delicious meal on the menu no matter their diet, this place is worth the extra bucks.
