A word from A Food Affair Restaurant
Long-time, highly regarded French caterers open new restaurant. Babette and Christian Royere, owners of the former “Babette’s Restaurant” in the Marina and “A Food Affair Catering” (est. 1997) are proud to announce the opening of “A Food Affair” restaurant. “A Food Affair” features French American cuisine in a charming, romantic atmosphere where patrons dine amidst a sophisticated mix of antique French furnishings and industrial lighting. Chef/Owner Christian Royere, a “go to” caterer for well-known figures in the entertainment industry (both behind and in front of the camera), is a master of creating French cuisine with an American “twist.” Bouillabaisse, beef bourguignon, moules frites are just a few of the mouth-watering delights done an innovative way. The Royeres’ support local substantial and organic practices whenever possible and the entire menu reflects their commitment to excellence. Babette and Christian look forward to welcoming you!Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The food was delicious. Slightly over priced for the portions (except the steak) I loved to potato gnocchi, but really wanted more then 4 for $13. The steak was amazing and perfectly cooked. It is BYOB, which has it's good points and bad. I do think the "glass fee" is a little ridiculous. I understand a corkage fee if you offer alcohol yourself, but if people have to bring it the least you should do is not charge them for doing so. Our server was very nice and helpful, and the overall experience was a good one. Just be careful of the hidden fees, $2 for a glass for wine, $3 to split the bill and the list goes on."

  • "BYOB with no corkage fee! ambitious menu with excellent implementation. small rooms, excellent service. Cozy. Fabulous food. the crab cakes are fresh and a bit zingy either as an appetizeer or main. The best moule frite in Southern California as far as I know. the gerilled romaine is a wild array of colors and flavors. I thought the cauliflower appetizer was beautiful and tasty but a bit too much olive oil. Desserts are updated classic. the coconut creme caramel was the least of them but still good. They strive to make it YOUR meal. what a change of perspective."

  • "The duck did not have much flavor, the burrata/macaron salad was slightly too sweet, flavors did not work well together, the creme brulee was decent."

  • "So glad to find this place from dineLA! Everything from the service to the food was wonderful. The chef even came out to greet the diners, which is top notch in my book. I would come again after restaurant week and highly recommend! Also note: it's BYOB with no corkage fee, but $2 per glass change. They let you know that there is a mini-mart about two blocks away, but I suggest you have something ahead of time. It's worth it!"

  • "Dined during DineLA and had a great time! BYOB is a nice option and perfect for a group dinner bc everyone can bring their fav bottle and share with the table. Very cost effective ;) for date nights too! The food was very hearty and flavorful but light! My fav appetizer was the macaroon and burrata and the beef Bourguignon is a must try!"

  • "We came for the dineLA program and BYOB, and was the first couple there at 6:00. By the time we left around 8:15, the place was jumping and packed. Service was attentive. The server explained the several dishes which were in French. Parking is on-street and traffic was heavy at the time we arrived. We would return to sample their regular menu. Their BYOB policy is great."

  • "This has quickly become my husband's and my favorite place to eat. The food is always excellent, and the service is top notch. It should be more expensive than it is. One of our favorite things is you can bring in your own wine without a corkage fee. They don't have a liquor license yet. They always have fresh ingredients, and I have zero problem ordering gluten free there. The chef owner has come out to everyone's tables every time we've been there, which is a very nice touch. Personal attention is a lost art in LA."

  • "The food was very good. The waiter was efficient, and the service was very good. The patio is very lovely but unfortunately sits on a busy street so there is some traffic noise. The chef came out to meet us and say hello, which was great. We could see how much the restaurant means to him and how hard he works to prepare delicious food and give good service. It's great to see someone who really cares about his customers."

  • "Their mushroom torte was a delicious appetizer but not all of their appetizers were amazing like the duck or asparagus. I liked the free cork fee and their desserts were delicious. The main courses were pricey but good."

  • "This place was extremely busy, which was understandable for a fourth of July weekend. The food was amazing, the service was a bit slow and the crowd was BUSY and LOUD. overall it was a great experience, for as expensive as it was I would have expected at least better service, and maybe cleaner tables.. but overall I enjoyed it."

  • "I don't think i could say enough about this restaurant. I came for my birthday dinner and the restaurant owners graciously gave us a huge table on the back patio to accommodate all 20 of us. If feels like you've come to your aunts house to have dinner with family. I was greeted by the owner Babette who welcomed me in and the head chef came out to personally to give us recommendations on the food. All the staff was incredibly attentive and nice. The food was DELICIOUS and words don't describe the desserts. If you want a low key evening with good friends this is the place to have it. Quality food, superb service, lovely atmosphere, i just might come here every year for my birthday. Thanks to all the staff for making it a fabulous evening."

  • "This place is romantic, quaint, and delicious! The food was SO good and was served in reasonable portions, but my only negative is that it is a bit pricey. The service is amazing though--they really go out of their way to make sure you have what you need. If you are willing to splurge every once in a while, this is the place to do so at. Perfect dining experience."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "From all of the great reviews I had read, I was really expecting to be blown away. Unfortunately, that was not the case. Since it was a Thursday evening, the back patio was not open. The inside seating area was very warm, so we sat on the front patio. The floor is uneven which cause the tables to be the same and our wine bottle kept sliding across the table. Server was nice and accomodating. I had the rib eye, which was not a very good quality. Tough and fatty. Husband got the beef bourg. which was fairly small and he thought pretty flavorless. Chef came out to check on our food which was a nice touch. Wish we would have enjoyed the food more. Maybe it was an off night but I don't think I will return."

  • "I came to this place for my birthday. I am not a really foodie person but every all i think the quality of the food is good but the reason for 3 stars is my main dish . My boyfriend had rib eye stake and i had their (supposedly special dish) beef Bourgeion... it was disappointing. Because our waiter told us that this is their special that we cannot eat at many places so I decided to try instead of other main dish. It is not bad but wasnt that great either. I am really not a picky person but I like having food without putting salt added later. I had to put salt because there wasnt much flavor. However their escargot was super delicious. its sauce was perfect! I will give another try and get something other than Beef Bourgeion."

  • "I was very pleasantly surprised by this small but quaint establishment. We weren't expecting anything amazing, but had found this place on Yelp and Opentable as having decent ratings for French cuisine. It was for my birthday celebration and the staff repeatedly came by to wish me a happy birthday. The chef Christian also came by to see how we were enjoying our meal and was gracious enough to share his recipe for the mushroom tourte with us. This place is special because it does not go crazy with complex flavors and allows you to really appreciate the natural flavors of the food and ingredients. There is also a really nice back patio that you can use for special events if interested."

  • "This was our forth or fifth time at Food Affair. Each time we have come with a different friend, enjoying introducing them to this wonderful restaurant and it never disappoints. I am not "a foodie," yet one of our friends noted that I made an "ummm" sound with virtually every bite. A great place to have a delightful meal, and adding to the enjoyment is the fact that the owners really show appreciation for your being there."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The restaurant is cozy and the staff is professional and friendly. I've enjoyed everything I've tried on and off the menu - lamb shank, rib eye, chicken, brussel sprouts, snapper, sweet potato gnocchi, fries, chocolate mousse. My absolute favorite thing about A Food Affair is that the chef makes an effort to visit each table and greet the patrons. This is the perfect dining experience. "

  • "Had a very good meal here the other night. It seemed more crowded but that didn't keep our waiter from providing snappy service. We were served in a most timely manner and everything was cooked to delishousness!"

  • "I enjoyed an absolutely delicious Saturday night dinner with friends and cannot say when I enjoyed such a fabulous meal at such reasonable prices! The restaurant was quiet so that our group could speak without straining to hear one another as is the case with so many other LA restaurants. The only drawback was that it was an overly warm restaurant both inside and on the patio despite a cool evening. If they air circulation could be improved that would make is an excellent place to dine. I highly recommend the restaurant to the LA crowd if you want a spectacular dinner at great prices without having to shout at one another to be heard! Make sure you dress lightly because of the overly warm restaurant or prepare to fan yourself to keep cool!"

  • "I selected this restaurant because of the great reviews and the fact my wife and I enjoy French cuisine. It was an anniversary celebration which I told them upon making a reservation, upon arrival, and again with the server. First and foremost, the food lacked flavor. Sad to say, I had to add salt and pepper to the chicken as well as beef bourguignon. I have never had such tasteless food. They made no mention of our anniversary not even wished us a Happy Anniversary. We didn't want to take a chance on dessert since our food was such a big disappointment and chose to go to another restaurant. I would not recommend this restaurant for food or catering. There are many other better choices! "

  • "A very nice return visit. Picked up a family friend's son from LAX, and decided to try a restaurant that was close. Surprisingly busy for a weekday! Best starter was cauliflower rainbow, onion soup was a disappointment (especially for a French restaurant!). Best main was my bouillabaisse, next was a tie between ribeye steak and the duck leg confit - both got thumbs up. Parking could be easier - had to find a spot 3 blocks away."

  • "We went there for Mother's day and they had a Price Fix Menu. Appetizer, Main Dish, and Dessert. The Lamb was tasty and very tender as it fell off the bone. Flavors just melt in your mouth with the peppers, egg plant, and spices. The crab cake was very good too with the delicious sauce. Two desserts worth mentioning with the Meyer Lemon cake and Chocolate Mousse. Both very rich and yummy. Don't forget the Guava Juice or Meyer Lemonade drinks."

  • "Good French food, free corkage fee. We were greeted by the chef multiple times while dining - a nice touch! Wine glass provided for each individual who orders a complete entree. Although the food, ambience, and menu selection was good, there was nothing crazy-notable about the restaurant that we'd come back for. If you're in the area, I'd highly recommend coming for appetizers which we thought were much tastier and unique than the entrees. "
