Steak, scallops, red snapper: every main course was delicious. Escargot, brussel sprouts, pate and onion soup as starters were also excellent. Throw in some pomme frites, great service and a pleasant cafe atmosphere and it was a great night out.

The food and service were outstanding. Abby was an attentive server without hovering. The duck entree and the creme brûlée were absolutely the best we have ever had. It had been years since I was last at CDF, but we will definitely return soon. The only minor negatives were that when I booked the reservation, it asked if it was a special occasion and I noted that it was our anniversary. Unfortunately, no acknowledgement was made at the restaurant. Also, no manager/chef ever passed by the table which I would have expected. There were only three other tables dining at the time.

The ambiance, service and the food makes Cafe de France a very special treat. If you’ve visited Paris and long for authentic French cuisine, or have never been but are curious about the food, book a reservation at Cafe de France. You won’t be disappointed! It’s a gem in the heart of Winter Park.

Overall, a fantastic experience. The menu is small in size but huge in flavor an options. The service is attentive without being pushy or hovering. The food is expertly prepared. We had the fish special, which was a stripped bass along with the filet. Both were excellent. We will definitely be back!

My wife and I visited this restaurant for lunch and then recently for dinner. The neighborhood where the restaurant resides is fun to walk around. The service is good. The people that operate the restaurant made sure we were happy on both visits. If you like french food, this is a great way to experience it.

CDF offers an excellent variety of high quality dishes that are exceptionally tasty. The dessert menu offered several tasty choices. Service was above par with the staff using the team method for serving patrons. The owner visited each table to check on patron satisfaction. Great food at good value! Would highly recommend CDF for either lunch or dinner.

Wonderful. Great food. The soups are yummy. Green salad is dressed exactly as it should be. Scallops at lunch are perfect. Tempting desserts and a nice wine list AND full bar! Service is attentive while not overbearing. No one rushes you through your meal.
Go. Enjoy!

The experience from the beginning to the end was good! The cocktails really good, my espresso martini delicious and also the fresh baguette. The onion soup it's so delicious and Rich and the salmon tartare flavorful, I recommend it. Then the entrées, café de France beef bourguignon delightful and a fish( I can't remember the name, but they call " the Asian sea bass") it melt in your mouth leaving all the sauce's flavor. Oh! I forgot de pomme frites, simply yummy
Well, for dessert, we couldn't avoid a French classic, creme brulee... Soft inside with a perfect crust, not too hard not too soft, and perfectly matching with a strong espresso.
I can say, thanks for remember me all those flavors.
So, we'll see you soon.

Decided to drive up from Dr Phillips to try this french restaurant and so glad we did. Met I believe by the owner which took us right over to our table. Our waiter Alex was perfect describing the specials and whatever we asked for choices. Our mussels and beet salad were delish! I had the rack of lamb and my husband had the dover sole special both were cooked perfectly. I went for the prorifoles for dessert they were great. Cant wait to return to try other great items on their menu.

We were celebrating a birthday and asked for a table outside for a quieter spot. It was charming, even when the rain blew through. Our waiter was from Moldavia and couldn't have been nicer to the four of us crazy ladies. As always, the food was delicious (coq au vin) and desert (profiterole and crème brûlée) perfect. Winter Park is full of good restaurants, but this one is a favorite.

Wonderful meal with gracious service. Food is authentic French quality. Salmon perfectly cooked with delicious accompaniments. Only suggestion for ambiance is to cool the dining room before guests arrive; a bit warm for Florida in March. Keep up the tradition of fine dining in an intimate space.
