The food was excellent. The service was excellent. The keyboard music was perfect. I have nothing but kudos for this neighborhood gem. The salmon melted in your mouth and if you're an escargot lover, they are delicious in garlic sauce. The keyboard player (Patrick) met all of our requests and greeted us at the table during his break. We'll definitely go back.

Another wonderful dinner. Chef Vincent made a great new shrimp dish that just melted in your mouth! Also had the poached pear salad that was sooooo tasty! The piano man was at his best and it made for a very delightful evening.

Once again, this place has in a trance. I am in love with the duck breast, while it was slightly over cooked, it was still VERY delicious. My bf had the Artic Char and it was delicious! Perfectly cooked. The caesar was a piece of art, and also very good. So far, I haven't been disappointed yet!

Outstanding French Restaurant
We have been to this restaurant for dinner & a wine dinner, about 5 times and it is consistently excellent. Since the demise of other French restaurants in Orange County due to decline in quality or closing, we were ready to give up until Bistrot Massilia opened. Everything that we have had, the escargot, salads, seafood and poultry entrees and desserts have been terrific. We even had a meal delivered to our house one evening and it was equally enjoyable. The servers & chef-owner go all out to make the customer enjoy the meal and want to come back. There is a pianist on Friday and Saturday and this adds to the ambiance. We don't go to brunch except on rare occasions, but will try this place soon. Look forward to our next visit.

a neighborhood gem
found it while looking for a French place nearby on open table. We were delighted to see they had patio dining and it was a lovely day. Everyone ate..no talking as it was too good to stop. We have told friends about this place and they loved it too. It is casual scene and a great brunch place or place to hold a private party. can't wait to go back

A little French neighborhood gem
Bistrot Massilia is located in a quiet part of Yorba Linda and is an authentic French restaurant, including a French staff and owner. The menu is filled with French items, some of which I've not seen before. It's interesting and pleasant to try out the various offerings. All that my wife and I have tried are quite good. The staff is pleasant and capable. We'll go back.

i had the eggs benedict it was pretty good. The food is nothing spectacular, but it's good service and local to grab some brunch with no crowds. I liked the service and the food was edible.

Fairly Goo French Food - Living Soc
Bought a $82 living social deal for $41 and when we got there we found out the fixed price dinner was really $88..okay that's deceptive, no wonder it was dead on a Saturday night.
The bread was good but what you would expect at a French restaurant. The French onion soup was good but a little salty for my taste. The escargot were good slathered in butter. The wine selection by the glass or bottle as extensive though pricy for a "glass" that was half the size of a normal wine glass Then only filled up half way.
The trout was cooked well with lots of butter, tender yet firm.
The Coq Au Vin was excellent. Chicken was nice and juicy, very rich and full bodied.
The mousse was average.

Wonderful French Food
A small intimate restaurant. The food is delicious! Looking for Escargots? One of the few around serving them and made perfectly! Food is very well seasoned and not drowning in sauce, just the perfect amount for flavor.
Can't wait to return!

Tucked away off of a busy street in Yorba Linda is this absolutely wonderful French Bistrot. My husband and I began our meal with the butternut squash soup, which was absolutely amazing; all kinds of flavors going on. Then we had the rack of lamb. This was the most incredible lamb that I have ever eaten in any restaurant! We ordered the lamb medium; it was perfectly cooked and was so tender that it practically melted in our mouths. Added to these already wonderful flavors, the sauce was another mouth-watering addition. A perfect meal.
The wine list was small, but just enough. The atmosphere was classy French, but not overdone.
Bistro Massilia will definitely become a frequently visited restaurant by our family.

Just wish it were closer to me
I discovered this restaurant while trying to find a place that was in between my home in Highland Ca, and some friends we were meeting who lived in Tustin. The food was great! I tried Escargot for the first time and had to order a second round of it. It was the best and I'll probably only eat it there. It's a neighborhood restaurant but it's a great little find. There wasn't a huge crowd which was perfect for me.
I would go there again.
