A word from Crepe Du Jour French Bistro
The Crêpe Du Jour was established in 1997 by husband and wife team Mustapha and Donna Snoussi. They had just relocated to Baltimore after living in Paris, France and began their first business by opening an upscale kiosk in the outside atrium of The Village of Cross Keys where they sold crêpes, panini, salads and more. The business was a success and they had acquired the clientele needed which would later support them in the opening of their Mt. Washington restaurant in 2000. The restaurant has expanded with the opening of an all year round heated terrace. Crêpe Du Jour has been part of the "Zagat" restaurant guide since 2003 where they describe dining on the terrace on a long summer evening as "almost feeling like Paris". The owner is often present to greet the guests and assure the quality of the food is at its best.

  • Mean to Moms on Mothers Day??!!??
    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 5/12/2013
    We were about 10 min late to our brunch reservation on Mother's Day. I dropped my wife off at the door and I parked with my preschool aged son. Owner or manager gave my wife a hard time about being late and was trying to force us to sit outside (windy morning, only about 60 degrees). Wife refused to sit out in the cold, especially with our son. Place was only about half full at that time so I was expecting a huge rush at any time... It never came. I watched same guy give several groups a hard time about being a few minutes late ... All refused to sit outside, when seeing all the empty tables inside. CDJ has good food. The attitude of the restaurant on this special day overshadowed the good food.

    My fiancé and I went to Crepe Du Jour to celebrate an early Mother's Day dinner. It was so nice. The food was delicious - especially dessert! Our server was great in recommending items from the menu to try and was very attentive, but not intrusive. The restaurant was packed and we were seated in the corner near the kitchen. It was a bit cramped and very warm, that was the only downfall. We will definitely be back! It was delicious!

    From the outside, Crepe du Jour looks very inviting. Once inside though it's really dingy and dark. The menu is dated along with the decor. Their intention is good, as is their service. The quality of the food is not great because the ingredients are not top quality. The sweet crepes would be a lot more desirable if they were less gloppy. More is not always better. They should cut back their menu and do 20 things really well instead of 50 things so-so. It's still by far the best crepe place in Baltimore...at least they don't serve their crepes folded up in foil to steam the heck out of themselves like someplace else I know.

    This was the second weekend in a row that we dined at Crepe Du Jour. We are relocating to the area and are learning our way around. The lentil and shrimp soup is exceptional. Both hubby and I loved it. As for entrees, hubby ordered the salmon and I ordered the linguine with scallops, shrimp, and mussels. We were both delighted. We cannot imagine how either entree could have been improved. Although we do not yet know where we will live, one thing we know for sure is that we will be back to Crepe Du Jour many times!

    My husband and I happened to be in the neighborhood and Crepe Du Jour came up on Open Table. We gave it a try and loved it. We both started with soup. I had the shrimp and lentil soup and hubby had the creamy potato soup. We both were pleasantly surprised by how delicious they were. As for entrees, hubby had the beef bourguignon and loved it. I had the Salad Auvergnate and it was just okay. I would not order it again; however, that is really more about my preferences than it is about anything the restaurant did. The couple sitting next to us ordered the same salad and both loved it, this prompting me to try it. I would definitely go back. I look forward to trying the beef bourguignon!

    Had mussels with fries for the first time and that is a very large dish! The mussels were okay but the fries were amazing! Had a salad and a savory crepe and was incredibly full. The times I'd been there previously my husband and I had split a salad, had our own entrees, and then split a dessert but since I was there with a group of women that wasn't possible and I ended up with WAY too much food. All good but a lot.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 3/24/2013
    The food at Crepe Du Jour is beautiful - lovely combinations of flavor and fresh ingredients, cooked to perfection. My diniqng companions had the Croque Madame, Croque Nicois (a Croque Monsieur plus anchovies!), and Crepe Sicilienne. I had the Crepe Montagnarde - when I asked the waiter how to pronounce it properly, he had to look at the menu and then said "I have no idea - I have never sold that one before." I suppose he gets points for honesty! Luckily, whomever was in the kitchen was much more familiar with the dish and turned it out beautifully. A few of us shared Nutella crepe for dessert, which was luscious and satisfying. Shaky service, but delicious food.

    When my party of four arrived, we were seated and served drinks and appetizers very quickly. The appetizers and drinks were great and naturally, we were expecting the quality of food and service to be the same all night. Then began a 45 minute wait for our entrees - 3 crepes and 1 special. During the wait, several other diners who'd come in after us were served their appetizers, entrees, AND desserts. When our dinners did come, they were all over salted & in one case, under cooked. The desserts were delicious, but for the price and the wait, not delicious enough.

    The food was excellent, with the savory crepes reminding me of our recent trip to France. The escargot appetizer was exceptional, and the cheese plate is large enough for two, as are the desert crepes. Seating is a bit crowded, definitely not the place for a romantic dinner. We will be coming back.

    The food was wonderful. The dinning room was adorable. The service was terrible. At one point I went looking for a server as we hadn't been given anything to drink after sitting down for 10 minutes. There was no one to be found but the one cook in the kitchen, which I didn't have the nerve to enter. At some point I believe the server heard me tell my fiance that it was unacceptable and things improved slightly. Not great but we did achieve drink refills.

The service is quick and friendly without being overbearing. Parking in Mt. Washington is seldom easy, but Crepe du Jour is worth searching out a spot.

    Overall a nice meal with some highlights and lowlights. The orange juice was phenomenal as was the hot cocoa. The quiche was well done. The crepes were just ok as the tomatoes used in the Crepe Norvegienne used were of low quality and mealy and the Crepe Flambe did not use fresh fruit but rather precooked apples and bananas which made the whole thing mushy.

    This was our first time dining at Crepe du Jour and we found it to be very good. It was our anniversary and were seated promptly by Laura. It was her first week on the job and she was trying very hard. First wine selected: not available. Brought out the second choice, wrong bottle. The owner came over and we had a nice conversation. He recommended another Bordeaux. As I tasted it there was clearly a problem--he tasted it too; his face told the story. He brought us another bottle and moved us to a quieter section. Laura came with us and was superb the rest of the evening. The food here is terrific--lots of choices. When mistakes are made and corrected quickly it is a show of quality and desire to please. We will be back.

    I suppose many people come for the crepes, but not us. On our most recent visit, we shared fantastic mussels as a starter. The restaurant has four different preparations for them. They come with French bread and (surprise) a huge side of pomme frites!! Delicious. Entries were trout for one of us and salmon for the other. Both were nicely sauced and sat on a bed of perfect rice and spinach. Knowledgeable owner/chef on site most nights. A cosy charming spot. We go there frequently, are always at home and always have a lovely meal. Reliable, charming, low key, very good food. Go.

    Although the place was cute, this is one of the first times an Opentable place was really disappointing. The only satisfied guests got eggs Benedict. However, the other 3 of us got crepes since that's the main reason we went to this place. We all had savory crepes that came with a large drizzle of balsamic vinegar over them. This made each bite sour since there was nothing to balance the tartness of the vinegar.All our crepes had mushrooms in them. The mushrooms were basically raw and flavorless. I had a crepe that was to have chicken, but found little meat. The cheese crepes had too little cheese or any sauce, so also lacked any substance or good flavor. Crepes themselves were more like tortillas in thickness.Disappointing overall.
