“Fine French dining in a relaxed environment...”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

We have been dining (note the word dining vs. eating) for several years, and have never been disappointed. The most recent trip was particularly exceptional...I think they had about 8 appetizers alone. The roasted beet salad with balsamic reduction and goat cheese was great, but I was coveting my husband's mushroom salad made with a similar preparation as my beet salad. In fact, I bought all the ingredients to make it today! Hopefully, mine will taste as good. Eiffel Tower always had several standard entree items - highly recommend the salmon over risotto with a fennel broth. They also have a fish special. My husband had the trout special, which he particularly enjoyed. Eiffel Tower also has a full bar and great wine list...and if you are a regular, they will treat you to a glass of champagne after dinner. And did I mention that the desserts are also wonderful? We are usually too full to eat dessert right after dinner so we take several home. The service at Eiffel Tower is another reason we keep coming back. Marc is a pro, and strives to make your dining experience a memorable one. Love sitting outside on the patio in the summer. Valentine's Day brunch is also a special event. Make reservations for next weekend!!

“Are you kidding me? Love the Eiffel Tower Cafe”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

I was amazed that the wonderful Eiffel Tower Cafe was ranked only 31st out of 92 restaurants in Leesburg, VA. I can only assume that the reason for the middling ranking is that it is an upscale place and is more expensive than many of the places listed...but if YOU are upscale and know outstanding French cuisine right here in Northern VA, this is a place you owe it to yourself to try.BTW...I agree with the excellent ranking of Tuscarora Mill, but that is for another day.

The Eiffel Tower Cafe has a delightful, intimate atmosphere; impeccable and friendly service and a great menu plus specials that people who know how to "dine"...versus stuffing one's face with ordinary food while looking at their cell phone rather than those they are eating with...will love.

Say hello to Madeleine and Marc. She is the owner and he is the greatest French waiter you will meet this side of the Seine River. If you also like places such as Chez Francois in Great Falls or Bonaroti (Italian) in Vienna, VA...this wonderful place should be on your list. If you like TGI Fridays or Applebees...don't bother...you can't afford it and you won't get it anyway...your phone is ringing again. :)

“Little known great restaurant”
Reviewed May 13, 2012 via mobile

We have been going to Eiffel Tower for years and always enjoy the atmosphere, food and service. Considering other comparable places in Leesburg, you can actually get in without waiting and the food is as good if not better than other locations.

“Very French”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

From the moment you walk in the door you would think your in Paris. I arrive 30 minutes before it was officially open and yet they invited me in. Sat at a nice little booth and ordered the beet salad which was excellent and the trout special which was also excellent. Meal came with fresh warm French bread and butter. Cost was about $27 + tax and tip. A bit high for lunch but food was good and the restaurant will take you back to Paris especially if you have been there. Service was friendly but a lot of work for one waiter taking care of seven full tables, and more were coming in. This would be my only complaint, typical wait time for your meal was 20-30 minutes, very French.
