“Classic French cuisine prepared by master chef/owner for the past thirty years.”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

We have enjoyed this small cafe for over three decades. Fermin, the Suisse chef/owner, has years of experience in Europe and elsewhere before taking over the Cafe. We have eaten in Paris, Nice and Montreal and Fermin performs consistence
excellence in his kitchen. The Cafe is loyal to the French tradition of eating with sufficient time to properly prepare and savor the meal.

“Very accommodating to my wife's food allergies! Great value!”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

My wife cannot tolerate certain foods, and some of her selected menu items contained them. When she explained her allergies, the server was extremely gracious in offering the substitutions that made her dinner excellent, overall. The preparation of her fish and my duck showed proper French care with the sauces. The duck was good, but a rather uniform grey under the selected peppercorn sauce. A quick sear with a still faint pink center would have made it even better. The soup de Jour - lobster bisque - was rich with flavor and excellent, as was the generous house salad's vinaigrette dressing. The option to add a house salad and soup to an entree for only $5.95 makes meals at Cafe de Paris a unique value among French restaurants. The decent wines at good prices by-the-glass add to the value. Don't come here for molecular gastronomy, just solid traditional French preparations!

“C'est bon!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Magnifique! Cafe de Paris est le gemme de Edmonds. The atmosphere was quaint and charming. The food was as good as, if not better, than in Paris. It really took us back to Paris. The warm bread was as is one was having du pain in Paris--fresh from the oven. The vegetables were fresh and wonderful and the rib eye steak with the Cafe de Paris sauce (garlic, butter and wine, I believe) was delightful and rich. We sat out on the enclosed veranda, sipped our wine, and watched the passersby down below and the Edmonds Ferry. Can't wait to go back on a warm summer night!

“Best Onion Soup”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Very authentic traditional French Food.. Love the onion soup -- very filling for lunch. Check hours and see if you need a reservatiion. It is hard to find really fine French food here. There is also a small outdoor patio.

“Classic French cooking in Edmonds by the Sea”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Café de Paris offers a few parking places supplemented by street parking, which is gobbled up by patrons of the tavern next door. We found the restaurant oddly uncrowded on a Saturday night. The menu is rather large, tending toward seafood. The bread served warm was excellent; the little tabs of butter wrapped in metal foil was déclassé. The wine list is adequate. We began with crème d'asperges which was not overwhelmed by the flavour of asparagus. The small house salad came with a slice of almost-hardboiled egg and a lovely house dressing, rather like a Caesar only different. It is made with raw egg; they made no argument about substituting oil and vinegar for my wife who cannot eat raw egg. She had the brochette de filet de boeuf aux herbes, which she found excellent. I had the veau Normande which was cooked perfectly. These were served with epinards à la crème, gratin dauphnois (which was overdone), haricots verts (which were overdone) and carrots (which were very overdone). They offer a lovely dessert list but we were too full, having ordered our entrees "complet" which meant they came with soup and salad for six dollars more. The bill was $90 for the two of us, which was a little steep for the overall quality of the good. We will return.
