    My Moules Marinières had no flavor. The broth lacked sufficient butter and garlic. In fact, it tasted a bit like dishwater with a splash of wine. The fries were good, the caramelized Brussels sprouts were good, and my husband liked his trout meunière. We ate indoors, and the noise level was quite high until the crowd thinned out,

Being on walking distance is also very nice. We are so glad that we have found this neighborhood gem. Thank you!

    Reservations for three on Saturday night. Seated immediately upon arrival. Seating is very cramped inside. Patio seemed like it would be better. Service was friendly and attentive. Mussels are the specialty. As an appetizer, we tried two of the dozen or so mussel offerings available. Both were great. Also tried oysters. Good, but poor shucking led to lots of shell bits and some smashed oyster meat. Entrees were beef bourguignon and bouillabaisse. Both were quite average. 4 stars for the mussels and 2 for the entrees. Carafe of house Burgundy was very tasty. Sit outside and stick with the mussels.

    Wonderful place for French food. Specialty in mussels. Nice atmosphere - especially outdoor patio on a warm summer evening. Hostess and server very friendly - server quite knowledgeable. Reservations are a must due to the popularity of the place - packed on a Saturday evening - both inside the place and the outdoor patio. Very nice experience.

    This is the second time we have met friends at this quaint French Bistro. The food was excellently prepared again. We took advantage of their happy hour half price small plate menu. It gave us an opportunity to order many dishes to be share among the 4 of us. There are still many dishes we have not had an opportunity to try so we will be back again in the near future. The wait staff was very attentive but not overbearing.

    We have eaten here several times and it never disappoints.vthe food is always an adventure in taste and the presentation is always beautiful. The wait staff is very friendly and always eager to please. I prefer to sit outside though because the inside acoustics make it very loud and if you have any problems such as tinnitus you definitely do not want to be inside.

    My boyfriend has fond memories of this place from childhood. So he suggested it when we were picking somewhere to go for a small celebratory dinner. The Brazilian waitress was very helpful and even indulged us with some Portuguese to see if the BF could understand it. The MacMurray wine was delicious, the Cioppino was divine, the duck confit was delicious, the Onion Soup was pretty dang yummy. I had muscles here during happy hour a while back, and though they were good, they didn't leave me feeling the need to tell everyone about it. We loved the whole experience.

    The seating outdoor is partly under roof cover (where we were) and partly under umbrellas. It was quite lovely and the level of noise was very manageable. The food was great. We had croque-monsieur and croque-madame, omelet, and moules marinières (mussels). The mussels were prepared with just the perfect recipe from France, white wine, onions, fresh. If your mussels are not open, don't hesitate to tell the waiter to change them. Never tempt eating closed mussels. As dessert, we had creme brûlée and it was a bit on the dry side. In the U.S., creme brûlée is usually served mixed with gelatin or something making it like a flan. Something softer would have been better. My Dame Blanche was perfect.

    Dined on 7/27/2014
    The most authentic of the French style cafe's on the westside. The best selection of moule frites around, and I believe the only steak tartar to be found, and not a bad one at that. Lively for lunch, good food at fair prices in a nice atmosphere. Could it be more French? Yes, but hey, it's the best you'll find west of La Cienega, and a 2 hour lunch at MEET is a heck of a nice way to take a long lunch break.

    The food was wonderful, and our server was very knowledgeable about their beer and wine offerings. The Restaurant Week dinner menu had a good range of choices, and everything we tried was cooked perfectly and went well with the drinks our server recommended. I haven't been for lunch or brunch, and so cannot comment on that. The only issue was that with only a single person bathroom, I did have to wait a bit. It is a small restaurant, so it's OK, but maybe instead of a one being for men and one for women, just have both be unisex? This isn't anything unusual, though.

    Went with the Dine LA menu, and was certainly not disappointed - I had the escargots, moules (mussels), and a cheese plate for dessert. Everything was delicious! The parsley butter really went well with the escargots, and when you use the crusty bread to sop up that butter and the lobster bisque that the mussels were swimming in... heavenly! The cheese plate was also very good (brie, another cheese I honestly don't know what it is, cranberries, pears, honey). Service was top notch as well! Great place to eat with friends and family!

For once a French Onion Soup wasn't too salty (I actually added salt to mine...a first!), the trout was good and fresh and the chocolate fondant is a MUST for chocoholics (warning: you will need the vanilla ice cream its served with as it is very rich...not a bad thing!). Went for the first time during DineLA week and will come back. :-)

    Meet In Paris was as a wonderful experience. My daughter and I took my wife there to celebrate her birthday. Our server, Mickey (?), was very polite and helpful. Her recommendations were spot-on! This was during Dine LA week and we found the food was very tasty. My daughter would like to come back for their mussel special during the week and also for the Sunday mimosa brunch. Overall, it was a nice experience. Culver Cirty does have some very nice dining establishments.

    In this great little neighborhood bistro you'll find Parisian classics that are sure to delight without breaking the bank. it's a great spot for Sunday brunch and the staff is friendly, attentive and personable which is the only non-Parisian aspect of this hidden jewel. The moules mariniere are fresh and delicious and the pomme frites are slightly crisp yet tender. Whether you brunch with friends, dine with a date or enjoy solo, you are certain to have a lovely meal and wonderful time in a charming atmosphere reminiscent of the street bistros in the city of Light but in a decidedly relaxed California atmosphere.

    Make a reservation so that you can be seated quickly. The food is great. Good Portions and amazing quality. Fresh and delicious. The space is VERY limited here so be prepared to be seated almost uncomfortably close to your neighbors. Friendly servers, though it took a while to take our orders and for the food to arrive. It was probably due to DineLA event. There were many guests. Lobster Crepe was so good! Savory and touch of sweetness. Steak Tartare was tasty and mussels were oh so yummy. Good place for lunch or dinner. I took one of my best friends here for Valentines date and it was so good we decided to come again for lunch.

    Staff is very accommodating and friendly. Salad and skirt steak were very tasty…mussels were a bit on the sweet side for my taste, however. Enjoyed the outdoor european cafe feel. The place was packed inside and out at 6:30pm so they must be doing something right! We'll probably come back…everything that the waiters were bringing out looked really good. Just wasn't the biggest fan of the sweet mussel sauce.
