This an excellent if pricey refined dining restaurant in a great location on St Armands Circle. The room is beautiful and very comfortable. Welcome and service from Justen was outstanding and made the meal for us.
An ahi tuna starter was really very good as was the Grouper and Chilean Sea Bass. Lobster Bisque was good but not memorable and a shared Peach dessert was not so impressive as the description. Maybe we just chose the wrong dish. Wines were as you would expect in this type of high end restaurant.
We would happily return if in the area and would recommend for a stylish meal

One of our favorite restaurants on the circle. The food is always amazing. We had the Lobster Bisque, escargot, Chilean Sea Bass and Veal Scallopini. The Veal was sliced paper thin and was very tender. The Sea Bass melted in your mouth! Our server, Marianna, was very friendly and attentive. Overall, Cafe L'Europe is an excellent choice!!

My wife and I had a great experience. The food, service and setting were fantastic. We especially enjoyed the flaming table-side preparations for both ourselves and our neighbors.

Our favorite restaurant in St. Armand's Circle.. Always great food and excellent service. We had Crispy Duck and it was marvelous. The Bisque was a bit watery... Good wine selections.. Have an after dinner drink outside and do some "people watching"...
