    I love almost everything about Beau Monde. The crepes are delicious, and always fresh, and the decor is so cute. The one and only complaint that I have is their lack of non-dairy options for coffee. I am lactose intolerant and had to drink it black.

    After all the years that Beau Monde has been there, I finally got to it. Only sorry that I waited so long! It's a very pretty space and has outdoor sitting too. Really appreciated that the indoor tables aren't too close together; I could actually hold a conversation with no challenge. And the food is wonderful. I did a create-your-own crepe for dinner; duck, spinach, and mushrooms: yum! Can't give a report on the dessert crepes as I was too full to try one. (Nice beer selection too.)

    Beau Monde is a cute restaurant nestled just south of Washington Square. This was my first time here and I went with an out of town friend for Sunday brunch. We both ordered mimosas to start (original and blood orange), which were fabulous. Then we both got one of the specialty savory crepes that had avocado, poblano peppers, tomatoes, and eggs. The crepes were a good size - I ended up taking half of mine home. The only downside to this restaurant is the price. $18 for a savory crepe and $11 for a sweet crepe? I think they are overpriced for what you're getting. They could easily charge 25-40% less and still be considered pricey, but at a much more realistic price point that I would return for.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience last weekend! I lived in the Brittany area of France 30 years ago and the food made me feel like I was re-living that fun and delicious time in my life. The French onion soup was rich and flavorful without having too much cheese overpowering it. Our gallettes (non-sweet crepes) were absolutely delicious and even with drinks the bill was very reasonable. Also loved the cider!

    We ate here mid afternoon on a trip to Phili. We had an amazing time. the food was outstanding. We savored every bite, the savory crepe, the sweet crepe, the cheese plate, and even the bison burger were outrageously delicious. My wife later commented that she loved watching me eat because of the face of delight on my face. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough!!

    One of our favorite restaurants, but we make the trip only occasionally, for special events. Food was great, as usual, Service was friendly and helpful (though could have used faster refills of water glasses). When we arrived, the inside room was nearly full and very loud. Luckily, the weather was perfect and a table was available outside. We had a wonderful meal.

    Beau Monde's menu offers something for everyone. You won't find chicken nuggets and mac'n cheese but you'd have to be really picky to not find a crêpe you'll like. We've come here for several years and will keep returning. The savory crêpe might seem "small" but Beau Monde doesn't skimp on the fillings and you will NOT go hungry! I also really like the fact that customers are not rushed along. Service is prompt but not pushy. My only complaint is the noise level. We try to sit outside when the weather permits or come early (before 7) to avoid the crowd and noise.

    I will def. be back to Beau Monde for a happy hour because the cocktails were a stand out when I was there for dinner. This was a nice dinner for a date night. I enjoyed the fresh fruit in the cocktails and highly recommend them! You can order Savory or Sweet Crepes so I went with a scallop with spinach and it was great! The scallops were marinated in a very tasty See you again soon!

    Beau Monde is great for crepes, both savory and sweet. We were there early on a Saturday in the summer, and the dining room was surprisingly quiet. That may have explained why our entrees came out too fast, as we were only halfway done our salads. I think they were bored in the kitchen. But the food was delicious! If you're looking for crepes, it's one of only a couple places in town.

    Having heard about Beau Monde for years, it was great to finally go and experience for myself. For a casual Sunday brunch, the laid-back, ccid jazzy vibe of this creperie was perfect. The crepes were outstanding: fresh, light, and savory. The hip staff only added to the atmosphere. I recommend highly.

    Unfortunately our dining experience on this occasion was rather disappointing. As usual the food was excellent but on this night the service almost ruined a good meal. They were having computer problems and instead of the manager staying on top of the checks (there were only about 7 total tables) she was relying on the wait staff to do this task. Our waiter was pleasant but really needed to be better trained at service and spending more time attending to his tables and less time trying to hand total the bill. We had 3 crepes and 2 drinks so it was not tough. This process took 30 minutes. We had to eat our shared dessert crepe with spoons because we never saw the waiter again after taking our order. Not sure why they had a manager on duty.

    We have dined here several times over the years. It's still a beautiful and romantic place to dine regardless of the time of day or season. Our server was charming and efficient. Depending on the day and time you can still get lucky with parking. Our entrees were pricey ( we were not surprised) and delicious but we were very disappointed with the tomato lemon grass soup, and considering that I have often spoken of their amazing Bloody Marys, I had a hard time believing there was any alcohol at all in our blueberry martini. ( and I'm a lightweight). I might still return for romance, but with all the local choices I will be tempted by other options.

    We went there for Father's Day brunch. Surprisingly, it wasn't that busy-few tables occupied here and there. So, that couldn't explain why waitress took forever to come to take the order. Our appetizers were brought out by another waitress (drinks came long after that). Our main dishes were also brought out by someone else, and our waitress checked in with us once choosing that moment when we were chewing (I hate when they do that) and just nodded her off. We asked for a check, which she forgot to bring and had to turn around midway when she saw my husband looking at her. Instead of bringing it right away, she had to chat with her fellow colleagues for another couple of minutes before she made final delivery. Food is good, service - not!

    I am not exaggerating when I say that this is my favorite restaurant, pretty much ever. I have never had a bad experience here, and the food is always phenomenal. Until last night. The service was so awful that we actually complained, and I never complain about service. It was 20 minutes after being sat that we were even acknowledged by our server, and then another 25 minutes after that to receive our drinks (which was just a bottle of wine), another 25 minutes to get our appetizer and then 40 minutes after that to get our food. Not once did our waitress apologize for the wait, offer us another drink or blame it on the kitchen. She just ignored us. We watched tables come, eat and leave before we got food. Disappointing visit for us!

    We had a nice experience though the service could have been better. I think they were a bit understaffed for mother's day. The hostess did not give us menus and one of the orders was messed up, which meant that one person was waiting for food while everybody else was almost done. However, the waitress was apologetic about it and very friendly. I think she just had too much on her plate. The crepes were very tasty and those at the table who had the mushroom soup loved it!
