Food was good but not as good as expected. Restaurant wasn't even half full at 1pm on Saturday the service was horrible. Took 30 mins to get drinks and then another 50 minutes to see any food! Was so disappointed - will not be going back.

I would recommend to a friend, but here's the deal. We went there for brunch and the food takes a whileeee to come out. If you have the time, great! If you can't stand waiting a while for some food, it might not be for you. We went on a Saturday around noon. The tables were less than a third full, but despite that the food took about an hour to come out. The server was friendly and quick with the drinks, so I can't blame that for the food taking the amount of time it took to cook. Maybe hire an extra cook? But perhaps the longer time is warranted due to the food quality, because the crepes were excellent. And everything is a reasonable price! If you're going here for weekend brunch, want to get some solid drinks and food, and aren't in a rush, this is the place for you.

As always, great place to share a meal. Get’s a little noisy on weekends, so dinner conversation isn’t as easy as it is during week. Food, service, ambience always a most pleasant experience.

Beau Monde is an ideal restaurant for a business meeting (as well as personal). It creates a feeling of "specialness" that I want to convey to my clients.

Scallop crepes were AMAZING. Pate was good. Salad was fine but overpriced. Lobster Bisque was VERY DISAPPOINTING. It tasted like spaghettio's sauce with imitation crabmeat. If that was actually lobster, it was prepared in a way that made it look and taste like surimi (fake crab). $14 was way too much for that, and it left a bad taste in my mouth both literally and figuratively. It was Valentine's Day, so I wonder if they ran out of the real stuff and just found something else to serve for the latter half of the evening.

Seating is critical, should have asked for a different seat we were in the middle where everyone seemed to walk by. The seafood crepe was to runny and I just don't think seafood and crepes go well, my fault for picking that. I'm the other hand the drinks were all great.

What a cozy, romantic treasure! My husband and wanted to see the cabaret at L'étage on Friday evening and decided to have dinner downstairs first. What divine treat. The friendly host and beautiful fireplace were warm greetings as we entered Beau Monde. Everything was very relaxed, not rushed and delicious!
My husband enjoyed the Kobe Burger and I loved the soup du jour and thin crust pizza....and chocolate crêpe :)

A friend and I went to Beau Monde for brunch and on the sidewalk upon entering the restaurant we were immediately transported to a cafe in Paris. We were no longer in Philadelphia. It was cute, quaint and reminded me of the time I went to Paris a few years ago. A lovely experience and the crepes were amazing.

We went as a group of 5 for my daughter's birthday. As always, food was delicious! Two had french onion soup, we shared goat cheese mousse and house salads. Then we each had savory crepes. No complaints from our group. I'm loving the duck breast, Brie and fig crepe; my favorite lately.
Alison our server was great! Several of us are trying to learn french and she was patient when we stumbled over the words, and she speaks it fluently!

The food and the service were great! I got a sausage and ratatouille crepe with a side of brunch potatoes, delicious! The only downsides are that It gets a noisy during the weekend and it’s a bit pricey. We went with my 6 months old and he did good even with the noise though! Recommended anyway!!

I'll start with the positives - the crepes and gelato were excellent. I would come back on that basis alone.

However there was a party of around two dozen that filled most of the restaurant, and the wait staff had a hard time serving them along with the rest of the diners. Because the other party had a birthday celebration, the noise level was higher than usual.

Best crepes in the city. Menu offers a range of fillings that will satisfy the pickiest to the hungriest person. Wait staff is attentive and experienced, and the room feels like it could be tucked into an cozy street anywhere in Paris. Don’t miss the crepes Suzette to finish off your meal.

We went for early dinner, 4:30pm, and they were out of the soup of the day. It would not have been a problem except our server had just told us the Soup de Jour. There was definitely a break down in communication at the restaurant. Don't ask for anything other than what's on the menu. My wife wanted the roasted beet in the roasted salad warm. No can do. I ordered a salad with Tuna medium well and it came out hard rubbery and chewy after our server said that they usually serve it seered rare. My wife enjoyed her crepe and said that it was very good although my salad was so so.
