Café Des Beaux-Arts
Go with the plat du jourWhen traveling to California, a good fish to dine on is the sand dab. It is a treat for me since it is not available in the Midwest. This offering attracted my wife and I to this restaurant but when we perused the menu we noted the special, Chilean sea bass, and it caught our eyes. We opted for that. Wow, what a good choice. It was one of the best meals I have ever had.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMVery PopularHave eaten here many times which reflects my satisfaction with the whole experience. Seating is sort of outside inside so on hot days only misters contribute to cooling. Food is always good and prices are typical for El Paseo restaurants.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother pleasant evening atAnother pleasant evening at the Cafe Des Beaux-Arts.

We visited recently for both lunch and dinner and were not disappointed either time. The luncheon scene was especially vibrant, busy but not too crowded, included a fashion show and great food and wine.

Management knows what's doing3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been coming to CaféWe have been coming to Café Des Beaux-Arts for years, mostly for lunch. The atmosphere is always lively, the service excellent, and the menu is unique, consistently well-prepared, and reasonably priced. Although some of the traditional French bistro fare can be a bit rich, there are a lot of lighter options on the menu, especially the wonderful salads. Some of our favorite things include the poached salmon salad, the curried chicken salad, the crepes, the vegetarian quiche, and the fabulous flan for dessert.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good menu and food. ServiceVery good menu and food. Service was prompt Varied wine list.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely French bistroLocated on a corner of El Paseo, during high season, reservations are a must. The menu is classic French with a strong Mediterranean influence. They have several great price fixed meal options. Portions are generous. Luckily they have "half order" options for dessert which are the perfect size to share and satisfy your sweet tooth. The service was wonderful, attentive but not smothering. We brought a very nice bottle of wine which they graciously opened and poured for us. My only complaint would be the wine glasses should be upgraded for really nice wine.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI come to the area once orI come to the area once or twice a year, and look forward to the ambiance and food.
