Beau Monde Ratings and Reviews
I have loved Beau Monde for many years and is a "go-to" spot for lunch and dinner. In the last few visits, I have noticed the service really lacking- not that staff is impolite, but just not available. Very hard to catch your server as they all appear to be stretched thin, perhaps understaffed? We waited a long time for everything. The food quality is good, sometimes great, but not consistent. The noise level for lunch was ridiculous. There is nothing soft in the space that absorbs any sound so we felt as if we were in a loud cafeteria and yelling to speak. Simple acoustic tiles on the ceiling may help. Lastly, toilet wasn't working (did not flush) and there was no toilet paper. We actually told the staff this at the beginning of our reservation, and they politely said thank you. But an hour and a half later, same situation... again, perhaps not enough staff to handle issues.
Hi. I never do this, but I want the owner to know what my family and I experienced today:
We came as a party of 6 into Beau Monde at Noon. We have been countless times and love your food and ambiance. Today, the short haired female host was very cold when we walked in, which is not a big deal at all. Then, we ordered around 12:10. At 1:00 we realized it had been almost an hour and had not received anything except our drinks. No soups; no crepes. We asked the server and she simply said the kitchen was "a little behind." 1:10. 1:20. Still no food. Mind you, no manager came over at any point to check on us or apologize. As we got up at 1:48 to leave, the host came out with the crepes, looks at us and says, "frankly, the crepes came out in a reasonable amount of time." She then tried to start arguing with us. No empathy, no understanding, no customer service. She then said "well; I'll just take your food back into the kitchen" and we walked out.
This woman could not have been ruder to us. I'm disappointed because I love your restaurant, but I do not plan on ever coming back.
I've been coming to Beau Monde for close to 10 years now and they never, ever disappoint. I actually moved out of Philadelphia 6 years ago and still come to eat at Beau Monde when I'm in town. Great for brunch and dinner! On a cold winter day they even have the fireplace going!
We only have one minor complaint but it impacted our experience. Beau Monde has a charming, French atmosphere. However, they played heavy metal music which destroyed the atmosphere and made it difficult to converse. Ironically, the restaurant was not that crowded and most of the patrons sitting inside were older. So, I am assuming the music was for the benefit of the staff.
A friend and I went last Saturday night thinking the 'Underdogs' comedic group would be preforming. I got the date wrong so we stayed anyway. If you like crepes you'll be in heaven. I got the special which was a lump crab salad. It was delicious, although a bit light on the crab.
I really enjoyed my brunch meeting here. I arrived at 11AM and the restaurant was fairly empty (it filled up around 1PM). We got the escargot and the french cuisine lover in our group raved about them. The crepes are great - a lot of variety. I made my own and it was a lot less 'full' than my friends who ordered off the menu. Seemed a bit unfair but it was still delicious.
