                                      This was our first time at Cafe de France. We were disappointed. It was expensive, the portions were small, and the food was fair, at best. The service was basically non-existent. Finally, we have a home in Annecy, France; and this was not very typical of the restaurants we frequent there.

                                      We had a great meal and service. My wife had the escargot which was the best she had ever had and I had the French onion soup again spectacular. The lamb was cooked perfectly and served with some really tasty sides. This will now be our go to restaurant in Winter Park .

                                      Excellent meal. I had the Beet Salad and excellent French Onion Soup. My wife had the Butternut Soup special. We both had the Beef Bourgonion. All was excellent. Unfortunately, we each had a large Cappuccino about an hour before dinner, so we couldn't fit in the delicious desserts on the menu. We plan to visit again soon.

                                      Disappointing to say the least. What can I say other than why would a restaurant with linen tablecloths not provide bread plates when they bring bread.. when I mentioned it to the owner or manager he apologized but said it’s their policy to bring plates … but then as I looked to the table of 4 next to us that just received their bread .. no plates .. they too had placed bread on the table to butter it .. that is just the beginning of what was a total disappointment. Food was mediocre at best and unfortunately people that want something different and are willing to pay for good French food and good service just don’t have an option.

                                      This is the second time we have been there for lunch. They do not disappoint. I had the lamb sandwich with frittes and I would not change a thing, excellent. My wife had the mushroom bisque and the terrine of the day, again excellent. My only recommendation is that I think their wine list could be a bit bolder.

                                      This was the perfect location for a quiet luncheon with a new friend. The menu offered a delightful fix of classic French cuisine - I chose an exquisite wild mushroom soup and the pork and chicken terrine. Paired with a nicely chilled Vouvray, it was tres bon!

                                      We are not from the area and just picked Cafe de France by luck. Wow what an experience. We both had soup, a vegetable bisque and French onion. Both were delightful. I had the rack of lamb and my wife the fillet. Everything was flavorful and cooked perfectly. Finally the service was exceptional with the entire wait staff working together to give everyone a good experience. I would travel out of my way to go to this restaurant again

                                      I know that staff is hard to come by these days, but I go to Cafe de France frequently and this was the first time I had to wait for our entre to be served.

                                      Lovely little French Restaurant. Food was delicious and appreciated the menu selections available. The service was very professional and waitress was very attentive. It was a nice romantic setting and very nice evening. We will go back!
