“Lovely restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Great food only one disappointment and that was that they clear the plates away before both had finished. Did not put us off and we returned for a 2nd great meal

“OMG”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

What a wonderful restaurant! It's small so you feel like your almost the only ones there. I had told them it was our anniversaty when I made the reservation. They started us off with 2 glasses of champagne presented on a plate with a spun sugar rose. If you have any idea what it takes to melt & mold sugar you would be as blown away as I was. The food is amazing. I started with a trio of pate which was excellent. Each pate was completely different from the other. Believe it or not I had lobster mac & cheese. It was fabulous. My husband has scallops that I can't even begin to describe. For dessert they brought us a chocolate mousse with a little Eiffel tower sculpted from chocolate. The service was perfection. If you are ever in the arrea GO GO GO.

“French With Charming Attitude”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

I ate at the bar and the bar tender could not have been more kind and helpful. All the staff are from France and are completely bilingual (which was great because my HS French is not so). The herring appetizer was outstanding. The vegan menu was a nice surprise. Wine very good and well-paired w/what I ate.

“Small bistro with excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

I had eaten in Maison Robert multiple times in the past years ago and was pleased to see this "outpost" in Kenmore Square, blocks away from where I was staying.

Very good entree, a salmon with spinach and fresh vegetables, my daughter had gnocci which was also good. The onion soup and salad just as good (they have a vegetarian menu) a peach bread pudding was covered in vanilla ice cream and just enough of a good thing

Service was polite but very "european" in that you are not rushed; you should leave time to savor the meal. Good value for good food with an ample wine list and a very pleasant staff
