Spinach and ricotta filled with a tomato-basil sauce
The manager, server and wait staff were all so accommodating!
Food is exceptionally delicious! Service was excellent.
The food and beverage selection was excellent!
It was a little too dark inside the restaurant. I didn't have any issues but I noticed some older people at other tables were using their phones for lighting, and my friend who I brought mentioned the print on the menus was too small.
But with the pandemic precautions still in place I felt safe and had a wonderful time.
I have also had takeout from Cafe Touche and the food was excellent aswell.
It was a beautiful fall evening, they have a tent or outdoor open space with very effective heaters....inside was also very well spaced out. The heaters worked so well we asked to have them turned down. Food and service was amazing as always. This place never ever disappoints.
CT is a regular stop for us and the very nice and heated outdoor dining makes it a great place to dine during the pandemic. On Saturday they made up a plate of linguini for us in white and with the mussel appetizer mixed end made for a wonderful entre. The entire wait staff is always ecellent and we find it to be a good value.
Great food service and patio was very comfortable with heaters
Excellent evening , tremendous service from server Josh, as always.
COVID is a struggle for restaurants and I'm really aware of that because I have family in the business. However, our service wasn't very attentive and I didn't feel that I got a $200+ value (incl tax and a 18% tip) for 2 who were dining and drinking on the sidewalk. Portions were excellent so I have no complaint there. Given the high quality of the reviews, I have to assume that it was an off night or another casualty of the difficulty of putting on a good experience in a challenging scenario.
Amazing Pate, Mussels, and chicken dish... and the Bread Pudding was one of the BEST desserts I’ve ever had!
Great food and service
I’ve always liked this restaurant and I hope it survives COVID, but it doesn’t seem terribly safe. The tables outside are very close together— like 2 feet apart, not six. Most people were drinking, which tends to make people shout and laugh more and generally spew their germs farther. Not sure I will be back. Maybe at an off day and hour, when it won’t be as crowded.
Fantastic food, beautiful atmosphere & wonderful team working there. Feels like you are at a bistro in Paris!
The food, as always, was excellent. Had the French onion soup, escargot and Jambalaya, which I also enjoyed the next day. Our server was top notch.
I was a little disappointed with the reservation system. We arrived on time and were told there were two reservations ahead of us. They also said they were more of a "first-come; first-served" kind of place. If that's the case, why take reservations? The tables were too close together for social distancing and they were all full as was the bar. The kitchen staff was maskless and our waiter's mask was ill-fitting and always hanging at his chin. He was very pleasant but with the noise, he would lean in to hear us and I felt like a sitting duck. I love absolutely love their French food especially the escargot and mussels. I do wish their entrees were more traditionally French and not a hodgepodge of French, Italian, and Cajun. But the appetizers would bring me back every time. So overall, I rated the food 5 stars but the service was only 3 stars. PS the cocktail called the Murder Hornet was off the charts amazing.
Overpriced dish (seafood linguine), little seafood, tough calamari, too much sauce
Waitress was Very inattentive and when we asked for more bread no one told us that there is a charge for more bread, REALLY???
Outstanding service, delicious food.
The staff is gracious and helpful.
I highly recommend this restaurant.
Dinner service took 2 1/2 hours for just 2 of us. Our server though pleasant never explained the restaurant menu week or for that matter anything else.
My salad (part of the Prix Fixe menu) was drowning in dressing - thankfully it was dark so I couldn't see what it really looked like.
Our dessert arrived before our entre. Our waiter was surprised we did not have our dinners. Finally those arrived but my Pork Medallions (part of the Prix Fixe menu) were dry and in a very heavy sauce that had absolutely no flavor.
About the only thing good was the bottle of Cote du Rhone that we ordered and the 2 bonus glasses we received as an apology for the slow service and entre confusion.
This was our first time here for dinner and we were very disappointed. We have attended brunch several times and have always had wonderful food.
Amazing service, great food and wine selection!
We have been several times for lunch and brunch! Never disappointed! Service, food always on point!
Expected more of a french menu but what is featured is more Italian with limited french plates. Food was good and the ambiance is quite lively.
The fish was a bit salty, but great everything else.
too much dressing
didn't have green beans or cherry tomatoes
salad wasn't crunchy enough (should have been boston bibb)
Still a great place just don't order this salad
It was a great night. Sat outside and totally enjoyed our dinner! It was during restaurant week. Worth every penny. Will return soon!
We came for the restaurant week specials and it didn't disappoint. Everything went well and it was a good experience overall.
Never had a bad meal there.........authentic & delicious.
There for Sunday brunch. Everything is great but two things: they should have peppermint oil on hand for a non toxic response to bee season. Many outdoor patios have this. Also the quality of the coffee needs to be upgraded. It would make all the difference in the draw of return visits and word of mouth.
Excellent food and service! Sunday brunch is amazing.
There was a dj there Sunday morning playing techno style music that did not suit this cute French restaurant . Food and service was great though.
Another outstanding meal at a superb restaurant.
Great wine list, delicious food, gracious staff.
Unbelievable food. Fresh blackened grouper...these people know how to cook.
Wonderful French Cajun...one of top restaurants in Edison Park / Park Ridge area
Friendly staff and great food per usual
All protocols to keep people safe during the pandemic are in place. Service was excellent and the ambiance outside under the cafe lights was wonderful. We skipped the appetizers and went right for the pork, and the chicken from the forest (rough translation). Both were delicious. We saved room for the delicious bread pudding.
Great place, good food. I would highly recommend...
By far, our favorite restaurant outside the city. Amazing food, fully-committed staff, great safety standards and incredible ambiance (ie. the outdoor patio). Highly recommended!
Food was good; ordered a salad that never arrived. Will probably return
Kelly was our server and she was wonderful. Do not like the music so loud. Besides that everything was great. Will be back again. Becoming a weekly thing the food and service are so amazing. Thanks again!
There were way to many people without masks here during a pandemic. I did not feel safe.
Excellent dining experience. Sat inside but was airy and spaced well. Felt very comfortable. Food excellent. Service was very efficient, friendly. Would recommend and will go back to dine again
Ambience n service is great the food is better than average but not outstanding but take into accounr we are in this pandemic so supply is short but overall our new favorite place
