    Good place. Unfortunately, they are having to close or move due to a termination of their lease, or so we were told.

    Never have had a bad meal. Only problem was that the restaurant was filled on the day we went for a quiet business lunch. Hence we could not get our usual quiet small room. But when the crowd left, we got our business completed.

    Nice quiet, old style restaurant. They did not have some items of the menu, noticeably, the Canard a l'orange and the Grand Marnier Mousse.

    Expected food would be French cuisine so was disappointed that menu was general without any French influence. Bread was not even a good French baguette. Wine list was limited and the French wines on list were not available.

    Had lunch there on a weekday. Quality of meat was not that great. Iron steak ordered as medium rare but came almost well done -- tough (and a bit dry) texture. At least the waitress offered to replace it when I told her. Even I might not recommend this restaurant, but I might want to give them another try on fish dishes as I was told they usually did a good job on fish (and I also noticed many customers there had fish that day).

    Went for a friend's birthday lunch and was so disappointed. Selected the restaurant after reading reviews. The service was horrible and the food was worse. I ordered the crab cake salad and found it inedible. The crab cake had some sort of gooey film around it. After cutting into it, I took one bite and couldn't take another. I thought I would at least eat the lettuce, but that was very overdressed so I ate lunch when I got home! We had to track down staff to order, refill waters (asked 3x before it was done), and before we could order coffee/tea, the bill was dropped on the table (the only time we didn't have to ask for something). The good news is that it was a quiet restaurant and we could converse comfortably.

    We were seated promptly and they fulfilled our request for a table by the window. My fried avocado was delicious. One of our orders was wrong: Alfredo sauce was flavorful but runny and instead of English peas they used mushrooms, which my son hates. My wife wished she had known and that they would drizzle the shrimp crisps on her entree with cocktail sauce, since she hates the stuff. My rabbit was quite good. The souffles were fabulous and generous, and one of them was comped to make up for the botched linguine alfredo. Our first time here, good enough to give them another try.

    The food here was mediocre. We ordered the daily special, pan roasted rabbit, and it was chewy. We had appetizers, entrees, and a shared dessert. Nothing was spectacular. Nothing was even noteworthy. Don't understand how the place got good reviews. Very disappointed.

    So glad we thought of this restaurant! Almost forgot it was here, as it's at the end of State Street so out of the main thoroughfare. The food was fabulous. There were 3 of us and each had something different. The chicken cordon bleu was wonderful, as was my salmon and the spinach and veges that came with it. One person in our party had the filet mignon, which was very delicious and very tender. I will definitely return!

    We went for a quiet dinner to celebrate an 80th birthday. The reservations through OpenTable worked well, and they got our special requests. The food selection and atmosphere worked well for our family, ranging in age from 11 to 87. The food itself was spectacular. We go here for special occasions and would definitely recommend it.

    We were expecting a more "french" experience, whatever that is. The waitress was not able to recommend a good wine - did not know the one we selected. The food was good but nothing to write home about (who does that anyway?) :)

    Nice people and good food, but not the freshest or best ingredients. For example, canned crushed garlic was used instead of fresh garlic. We would go again in the future, as the staff was very nice and the overall product and menu variety was good.

    We have been several times over the years and it is an old school place. Nice ambiance and quiet which is rare these days. Older crowd usually and they have a good prix fixe menu that is a good value. Nothing creative, but good rack of lamb, roasted fish, and grilled steak. The salads are simple and good. It is a comfortable place where you can get a good value and nice service in Los Altos. We'll be back.

    When we arrived the place was empty and we thought maybe we had made a wrong choice for dinner. There was a street faire outside which perhaps caused many to avoid the hassle. After some time the room began to fill. The food was good and the service excellent. We will definitely return again.

    Beausejour exceeded our expectations. The food was exquisite. We ordered the braised lamb shank and the mixed seafood linguini dishes. For starters we had the French Onion Soup and the Salad with a Dijon vineagrette dressing. Dessert was perfectly executed: Grand Marnier souffle. We ordered 1 for each and could have ordered 1 between the both of us. It was piping hot from beginning to end. Be careful not to scald yourself. The dining room we were in was pretty much all ours except for another couple in it. There are multiple dining rooms around. They weren't busy at all the Friday we were there. Our reservation was at 8pm. In a sense, good for us there wasn't a crowd. We were suspicious but had no regrets whatsoever.

    The entrees are good and reasonably priced. The best thing on the menu is the Gran Marnier Souffle - it's out of this world, the best ever. The souffle alone is worth going to the restaurant for a meal.

    We arrived for our reservation at few minutes before 6:00 p.m. Our reservation was at six. We were seated right away and service began immediately. We had our choice of seats and were seated in a room by ourselves. We asked for that area. The service was very good and so was the food. All of us were impressed by both. The portions were good. Some of use asked for bags to take what we could not eat home. The ambiance was good. The prices were good.The only criticism I have is the location. I would recommend this restaurant.

    We've been going to Beausejour since the 1980s, and it has yet to disappoint. We even held our wedding rehearsal dinner here 19 years ago. The cuisine, French with influences of northern Italian and maybe a tiny hint of Vietnamese, is expertly prepared. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxed, and the service is completely professional.

    When walking into the restaurant, we almost turned around when we saw the menu. How do you call this french when half the menu seems to be linguini? The food was fine, but calling it "contemporary french cuisine" is laughable at best. The service was disappointing as I barely saw the waiter and was never asked how I liked the food. After finishing my one drink before dinner arrived, I was never asked if I wanted another, or even saw a waiter until I was done eating.

    I've had good/fair experiences with this restaurant but this time (Easter dinner) the service was very slow and drinks not refilled without asking several times. The food is good but a little bland and that may be that this restaurant serves a large clientele of senior citizens. There is never a lot of choices when trying to find a french restaurant and this one is good especially for the ambiance and nice decor but the food is only slightly above average.

    This is our very favorite pace to take guests as it is a restaurant where you can have a conversation. There are several rooms of different sizes, so it can appeal to a variety of group sizes. The food is always reliably very good. We recommend it highly.

    Great food and very consistent. Wonderful "rooms' where you can have a conversation. If you arrive and are waiting just walk back into the restaurant so they will know you are there. Also I have seen reviews about the staff size. They do have a small staff but why are you in a hurry when you are out for dinner. When our food arrives it is always the right temp and delicious. My wife and I have gone several times and have not been disappointed. If you enjoy avocados try the avocado appetizer it is absolutely delicious. We have been with Open Table for several years but don't write many reviews but Beausejour is a favorite that brings us from San Mateo several times a year. Take your date, you will actually be able to have a conversation.

    Nice room(s) as there are about three dining areas, which offers solitude and quiet when desired, and the food is very good (although not what it was several years back). The wine list needs some attention, as it now offers a few Safeway items, with a couple of high end exceptios. But overall a lovely place for lunch or dinner. And value for money, had to beat.
