    This restaurant was lovely, the food was excellent and we would definitely go again. It would have been a little more fun had there been more people in the restaurant, but we went on a Sunday night.

    In general, I would characterize my experience with this restaurant as good, but not great. The food was of good quality and was prepared well. That being said, they could probably have used one additional dessert option given the choices they had - my suggestion would be a chocolate soufflé. I was pleased overall but not wow-ed. Just down the road is another French restaurant (Belgian-French to be exact), and between the two I would probably pick the other one over Le Bilboquet. There is also a good tapas restaurant across the street, for Spanish food. I had a good bottle of wine there one time.

    We went here for my birthday and it was so wonderful. We started out with fois gras with crositini that was excellent and the escargot in a lovely white wine sauce. I had the rack of lamb that was perfect and my husband had the red snapper with ratatouille that was amazing. We finished with the Ile flottante or floating island which is my husband's favorite and it was perfection! Stephan stopped by the table and was always checking with customers to make sure everything was up to par. At one point in the evening they opened the roof and let in the fresh air. Great experience and we will go back!

    I've been to lunch twice and dinner once. I found the food to be excellent and the Rosè by the glass was great! Their avocado/crabmeat appetizer can feed 4 people and is really outstanding! I had poached salmon for lunch and grilled salmon at dinner. Both were great, I liked the dinner salmon best. My husband wants to put this restaurant on our list (which is very short) so this says a lot! The entrees were plenty varied and the Frites were awesome! I love French food and it's hard to find in Dallas, but now we've found it! The service is very professional and friendly at the same time. The place has a small intimate feel even when it is packed on a Saturday night! I look forward to dinning on the patio in the fall when they open it.

    I found this restaurant thanks to Open Table and have now been 3 times. It is definitely my new favorite special restaurant. The service and attention to detail is amazing. They have Grey Goose La Poire, my favorite and the food is awesome!! I would prefer to go here than to The French Room as the food is equally wonderful but the atmosphere is quaint and the service is exceptional but relaxed. I cannot wait to go again and again.

    Best part was a shared desert of Tarte Tatin! Well executed; however, for the three of us that evening, the experience was less than mediocre. Beet salad was passable; compressed watermelon salad was not. Moules et frites was well below par with a sauce that was not worth dipping a crust of bread into. The scallop main dish was adequate; however, the branzino was tasteless and the veal scaloppini was done in an unidentifiable pink sauce. Coffee was barely tepid. Service was basic but unexceptional. Cannot imagine any long term survival for this place.

    On my second visit to Le Bilboquet, I found the food, again to be excellent. Grilled romaine salad and a wonderful halibut with risotto, cherry tomatoes and greens on the side. Healthy and delicious. Was excited to order the Chateau Montelena chardonnay on then menu. One of my favorites. The staff is welcoming and knowledgeable. The waitress I had 6 weeks ago even remembered me from the first visit and came by the table to say hello. Will definitely go back and recommend to others.

    The food was unbelievable! My filet was tender, flavorful and cooked to perfection. My husband had the lamb and loved it. A friend was disappointed with the Texas grass-fed ribeye not being as tender as she had hoped. Plus, the sauce on the filet is excellent! I had the bibb salad and it was yummy and my friend had the beat salad and she loved it. Dessert (flourless chocolate cake) was good but I expected WOW from a French restaurant. My only complaint was the slow service. Maybe our waitress thought we were busy talking and didn't want to interrupt but we sat there for a very long time before she took our order and the chairs aren't comfortable enough for leisurely dining.

    The service was good. It is a pleasant room. I had steak frite. The frites were good, The steak was the proper medium-rare; the sauce, however was inedible. It was full of partially cooked onions. I had a glass of pinot noir that tasted as though it came from a bottle that had been opened too long.

    We wanted classic French food and found it along with creative cooking in the same place. We ordered scallops with a cold orzo salad and lamb with vegetables, as main courses and escargot with lots of butter and garlic as appetizer. These were prepared perfectly!!! For dessert, we ordered tart tartan, which was good but the chef's version, not the classic, and chocolate mouse which was perfect. Our waiter was superb...not overbearing but there when needed. The owner, Stephan, came to our table and spoke with us, making our visit more personal. The ambiance was simple and casual but elegant, noise levels not too loud, and everything was done just right.
