The food and service were great. The prices were reasonable. I took my wife there for our anniversary. We had a wonderful time. We will definitely go back.

The restaurant was very accommodating to the changes to our reservation. Service was excellent. Food was cooked to perfection. I really enjoyed the French Press with my tea infused with fruit/spices!

Sunday brunch reunited former teammates from the 2017 French women's waterpolo championship team. The selections were appetizingly plated and delicious.

I don't know if it was an off day for them on Labor Day, but I cannot recommend this restaurant. We were there for brunch. The service was bad, the kitchen did not seem to be able to handle the the number of orders they had that day. The coffee was Luke warm. The food was luke warm to cold and the crepe I had was not good. Disappointed.

Fish was wonderful the steak was sent back to the kitchen. Overcooked and Very chewy.
Love the French onion soup.
The server did a good job on expediting my husband second choice after sending the state back

This is one of my favorite locales for quiet lunches and dinners with friends. The food is authentic - very much like what I ate when I traveled in the French Riviera and Monaco . It is cooked and presented well, and the service is attentive and non-disruptive. They actually notice when your mouth isn't full to ask how your meal tastes. :) I highly recommend them and will return often for their Duo of Beet salad, French Onion Soup, and Quiche!

I love the al fresco dining it provides. I love the soft music. I wish they played French music. (Did they? I don't remember. But it would be apropos!) I HATE the LOUDNESS of music and the noise in MOST dining places here in the US. This is why I love George's Bistro in Costa Mesa. It should be publicized more. So many dining places here are SO noisy. I have to yell to be heard by my companion. Even Habana Restaurant in CM, upscale as it is, plays LOUD music! I told the manager about it; she said she could do nothing about it. It speaks of BAD TASTE!

Love this place. This is a wonderful restaurant with a good menu variety. It is one of our go-to French restaurants. Very good value. Reminds us of the casual restaurants (sidewalk cafes) in Europe.

Wyatt the host was nice and professional. However, our server took more than 15 minutes before he even greeted us. Asked for water with our order and had to ask three times before he remembered to bring it. The restaurant wax not crowded so not sure why it took so long. Nice outdoor dining and great happy hour food.

Love this newly discovered French Café in Fashion Island in Newport Beach.
Twice time this week. Joined their reward club and returned to take advantage
of $5 off my meal and I had another special discount waiting at home on my
computer when I returned from another delightful lunch. Once again, David was
the server and he is excellent. Nice to see good food and good service at the same
time.

I have experienced Cafe Beau Soleil for both lunch and dinner and I would recommend it for either. The atmosphere is as close as you'll get to dining at a sidewalk cafe in Paris. The menu is creative and varied. I always feel that I'd be happy with almost ant of their offerings. The ingredients are always fresh and tasty. Try the Cajun Chicken Salad for lunch. I think it's the best salad in Southern California.

I never tire of this place! Their menu has so many yummy items that I never run out of food to try out. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Breakfast is served nearly all day, so if you show up in the afternoon and they hand you a lunch/dinner menu but you crave breakfast, be sure to ask them for a breakfast menu. Enjoy!

This is a nice, simple spot in right in Fashion Island. It wasn't very busy. The ambiance is nice and the staff was very friendly and prompt. The food was very good and reasonably priced. Definetly recommend for a quick stop if you're shopping around Fashion Island.
