Good food as usual - lobster bisque, crab cake, scallops and shrimp linguine and short ribs. Very attentive wait staff, especially on a cold weeknight!

Love this restaurant. Jean-Marie is amazing! Lots of options and the Dover Sole is out of this world, if your on a budget... ask the price as it is at Market Price. It’s magnificent.

Caodt -- delicious, authentic French food served in an authentic French dining room. There are not many places like it around any more, a real gem. Go for the food, stay for the ambiance.

We “found” Cadot several months ago and keep coming back. The food is very good to excellent. On our first visit, Ramon waited on us and we ask for him every time. He greets us and treats us like family!

Another great meal at Cadot. The food is consistently excellent (Dover Sole and Filet Mignon for us this visit). Good wine pairings suggested. The strolling accordianist was playing Christmas tunes this week.

Went on a date. Ambiance is top notch. Friendly and charismatic French waiter fit the setting. Food was rich and savory. The onion soup is the best I've had. The scallops were smooth and so flavorful. The creme brulee was very good as well. Little on the pricey side but its worth it. Highly recommend.

The food was amazing. However, our server was also working a large table and he rarely came by to check on us after he took our drink and food order. I think we only saw him 3 times over the course of an hour and a half, and he never asked if we wanted additional drinks until after we were ready to get the check. There was also leftover food on our silverware, the server took it and never replaced it.

My biggest complaint is that I had made a reservation over a week ahead of time and the restaurant was nearly empty when we arrived, but they sat us next to the kitchen door. When we left there were still empty tables in much better spots. That crappy table should be the very last one used.

Our waiter Ramon was very pleasant and we will ask for him next time in. The accordion player was also great to chat with and watch him play to any song you requested. They use to have a waitress that could sing well but for some reason she is no longer working there. Disappointing.

Best service I have ever had. The staff was friendly and extremely accommodating, and the chef came to greet us as well. The food is fantastic! Coco au vin is amazing and my favorite dish. I highly recommend for anyone who loves a nice dim lighting and a gentle feel for an evening. My go to French restaurant :)

We had lunch at Cadot - there were five of us and everyone raved about the food. Two had a lunch special that was only $12.00, plenty to eat, and delicious. I had the salad nicois that was fresh with generous helpings of perfectly seared tuna and a delicious dressing. The bread was moist and crusty, and the dessert - a kind of ice cream en croute - was also top notch. Our waiter was attentive without being intrusive, and always seemed to know when drinks needed refilling. Cadot also has a beautiful atmosphere and is refreshingly quiet and relaxing in an era when most restaurants are too noisy and play music that is too fast-paced to allow for leisurely, relaxed dining. I highly recommend Cadot for lunch or dinner.

Everything was great, especially stuffed rabbit leg! But the median-rare filet mignon was undercooked this time (too rare). Last time it was perfect.

I had the lamb and it was cooked to a perfect medium rare. The ratatouille was very fresh. The waiter made sure we had enough time to have a chocolate soufflé since we had theatre tickets. It was my friends first time to eat here and they requested we schedule another visit.

Cadot has a menu that is generally traditional French cuisine. The service was very good, very professional. The food was enjoyable. The interior was much more casual and relaxed than I assumed based on the exterior. It would be an appropriate selection for a casual business dinner or lunch.

Dinner was marred by the waiter who kept trying to up-sell, lingered when unnecessary, and was missing when we needed him. Acted like he was the head waiter with dyed black hair and claimed to know 7 languages.
