Salut! Bienvenue à Baker Street Bistro! Serving up authentic French cuisine, Baker Street Bistro has been a neighborhood gem for nearly two decades.

Our extensive bistro menu includes French classics such as the Bourride (a rich seafood stew), Duck Confit, and Grilled Lamb Chops. Locals and French ex-pats alike swear by the fresh daily specials, Moules Provençale (mussels drenched in white wine, shallots, parsley, tomato & pesto) and Pain Perdu (fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth cinnamon French toast).

Have eaten here twice, everything was quite good. Really loved their tomato soup. Their $25 early bird 4 course meal is an excellent value.

For my Wife's special birthday Baker Street Bistro was the best choice. Once we entered the bistro the waitress knew that we asked for a window table and it's was my wife's birthday. The bistro looks like a restaurant straight from Paris where we had visited several times. The salads, entrees: my three lamb chops were cooked just right medium rase and my wife's duck were excellent. The salads were very large and can be shared. We had to take home one of the lamb chops, potatoes and my wife's spinach since we were so full. The bistro placed a candle on my wife's dessert for her birthday. The service was excellent - they checked on us throughout the meal and we were not rushed. There are only 10 tables but we did not feel too close to other customers and noise level was acceptable. We had traveled from the East Bay but we plan to return when we want French Food. The prices are very reasonable.

OMG! What a find. Great salads and french onion soup, fantastic entrees and a great dessert to finish things off. Very close seating, but comfy. Can't wait to go back.

Terrific French onion soup. Service attentive. And you can talk to each other.

I would only return for the mussels; they were delicious! The onion soup had a lot of cheese but was lacking in flavor. Unfortunately we ended the meal with lousy coffee instead of strong French coffee.

Nice neighborhood place, good food, friendly and efficient service. The mussels were very good, as was the lamb stew and the steak. Portion size is generous.

Wonderful, friendly people, who provided ok service. Didn't seem to have enough personnel on hand to make it good. Huge portions on the food, but it was only ok. My Croque Madame arrived with its fried egg with the white still uncooked. Servers was nice about my comment, took it back to the kitchen, and it came back to me still with uncooked, slimy white. She took it back and this time it arrived back cooked, so much so that the yolk was smashed and cooked to death. As for the rest of the sandwich, it was smothered in goopy sauce. I don't recommend this dish! There were other things on the menu that looked appealing, should have tried on of them instead. The place is charming, so the ambiance is very nice -- but the food, at least based on my experience, don't expect anything really good here. (My companion had a salad, and she didn't seem very enthused about it as well.)

Always great when you feel like a little trip to Paris.
