About Le Bistro du Village (fka Crepe du Jour)

Le Bistro du Village was established in 1997 by husband and wife team Mustapha and Donna Snoussi. They had just relocated to Baltimore after living in Paris, France and began their first business by opening an upscale kiosk in the outside atrium of The Village of Cross Keys where they sold crêpes, panini, salads and more. The business was a success and they had acquired the clientele needed which would later support them in the opening of their Mt. Washington restaurant in 2000. The restaurant has expanded with the opening of an all year round heated terrace. Le Bistro Du Village has been part of the "Zagat" restaurant guide since 2003 where they describe dining on the terrace on a long summer evening as "almost feeling like Paris". The owner is often present to greet the guests and assure the quality of the food is at its best.

Reservation was for right at 10 a.m. which is when they opened. With my party being the only ones in there, service was slow. Drinks not so much but food took a while. Maybe they were short staffed that day? Besides that, everything was great. I would go back again and would recommend.

The food at this charming, comfortable, and friendly bistro offers much more than delectable crepes. I'm a repeat customer and everyone I've been with has enjoyed the varied fare, from seafood platters to mouthwatering quiche and salad.

Went with friends for a birthday brunch. We try to find new spots. Food was great. Creeps large and delicious as we're the omelets. Place was empty which surprised us. We would go back again.

I took my mom for her birthday. The service was great, and it was quiet tht we could hold conversations without having to loud talk.
However, I was not to impressed with food presentation. It tasted good, but presentation was minimal to none. Maybe because it was lunch time, I'm not sure.
May consider a dinner reservation to see if there is a difference.

The menu at Crepe Du Jour was very extensive. The execution of the dishes was fine, but the portions were larger than they needed to be. My wife's crepe was large enough to nearly fill her plate, but half of it was empty. The prices were reasonable. The decor needed serious updating. There is a better French bistro about 10 minutes away, so I'll probably go there in the future.

We got in around 11AM and it wasn't very crowded. Wait staff was courteous and indicated we could sit anywhere. They indicated some of the very nice aspects of the menu and some that were not the waiters favorites, so it was nice to get his unvarnished opinion. Omelette and Quiche were excellent. Coffee was below average. Dessert was fantastic...especially if you like crepes, Lots of great choices.

We have eaten at Crepe du Jour several times before and thought we would return with some visiting relatives. Food was excellent as usual. Both men found the portions to be small, although the women seemed satisfied (and one brought some home). Larger appetites will need an appetizer or side to be satisfied. The server's wine recommendation was a reasonably priced white that certainly complemented my meal. A plus is that the restaurant is small enough that it doesn't get too noisy and you can have a quiet conversation without shouting at each other. I thought that overall the food/wine was just a little over-priced, but Crepe du Jour will remain a possibility for us for special occasions. Overall I would probably give a 9 out of 10.

This is our favorite place for fantastic crepes. The menu has several excellent crepe options and several non-crepe dishes for those who prefer something else. The crepes are a nice size and the flavoring is excellent. We also ordered a dessert crepe which was very good. I split it with my son as they are large. I highly recommend this restaurant. There is also outdoor dining. Every table outside was filled as we were leaving. The waiter was attentive and the prices are reasonable. Our crepes were in the $12 range.

I have to admit that I went to The restaurant 10 min. prior it's closing and 20 min. past the closure of the kitchen. The chef was kind enough to try to make us a Croque Monsieur but alas it smelt of dishwasher and burnt ingredients. It might have been different if I would have arrived earlier but the Yelp and OpenTabel info was incomplete.

Went to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. He loves French food and this place was very reasonably priced compared to most French restaurants in Baltimore and DC. The food was fantastic, French onion soup, mussels, savory crepe, sweet crepe, and crème brulee. we loved it all. The wine was delicious and our waiter Scott was extremely helpful and attentive. We have found a new favorite.

The food is always good, but they do skimp on the wine pours. My understanding is that a glass of wine, when ordered usually comprises 6 ounces. Most of the time that we have gone there, the wine portion is only about four ounces. They do not offer a proce reduction for the reduced portions.

The menu looks spectacular. The execution is pretty good, but it doesn't quite match up with the mouth-watering anticipation the menu creates. Everything is good, nothing is spectacular. With moderate pricing it's worth a try.

We were puzzled by the many empty tables on a Saturday night, even if it was July and very hot out. There seemed to be only two waiters and they worked hard, but even with few diners, were slightly off their game.

Food was VERY good, and as others have noted, big portions, and we enjoyed leftovers for lunch the next day.

Highly recommend it, will go back, and hope to see more people there!

I never knew that you could do so many things with crepes......but they do! A wonderful local eatery with a French flair. Servings are sizable so consider sharing! The wait staff was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. I had the coq au vin which was made fresh that day. It was good, but my take home serving was much better the next day. The dessert crepe ( rive droit ) was outstanding.
A must try if in the vicinity.

This was a farewell dinner party for my daughter who spent a year in Paris and I wanted to have the ambiance of a French cafe before she left for another 2 year travel but instead we were huddled together inside (their outside dining in the back garden was closed and the cafe tables in the front were in the hot sun with no shade available.) The wait for a server was too long, we were not offered wine or drinks to start. Wine was not tasted before everyone got a glass poured. When we did get a waiter, they sort of rotated, we never had one waiter and they were sloppy - reaching over people. FAR cry from professional waiters in France. The food was good but not notable.

We were about 10 min late to our brunch reservation on Mother's Day. I dropped my wife off at the door and I parked with my preschool aged son. Owner or manager gave my wife a hard time about being late and was trying to force us to sit outside (windy morning, only about 60 degrees). Wife refused to sit out in the cold, especially with our son. Place was only about half full at that time so I was expecting a huge rush at any time... It never came. I watched same guy give several groups a hard time about being a few minutes late ... All refused to sit outside, when seeing all the empty tables inside.

CDJ has good food. The attitude of the restaurant on this special day overshadowed the good food.

My fiancé and I went to Crepe Du Jour to celebrate an early Mother's Day dinner. It was so nice. The food was delicious - especially dessert! Our server was great in recommending items from the menu to try and was very attentive, but not intrusive. The restaurant was packed and we were seated in the corner near the kitchen. It was a bit cramped and very warm, that was the only downfall. We will definitely be back! It was delicious!

From the outside, Crepe du Jour looks very inviting. Once inside though it's really dingy and dark. The menu is dated along with the decor. Their intention is good, as is their service. The quality of the food is not great because the ingredients are not top quality. The sweet crepes would be a lot more desirable if they were less gloppy. More is not always better. They should cut back their menu and do 20 things really well instead of 50 things so-so. It's still by far the best crepe place in Baltimore...at least they don't serve their crepes folded up in foil to steam the heck out of themselves like someplace else I know.

This was the second weekend in a row that we dined at Crepe Du Jour. We are relocating to the area and are learning our way around. The lentil and shrimp soup is exceptional. Both hubby and I loved it. As for entrees, hubby ordered the salmon and I ordered the linguine with scallops, shrimp, and mussels. We were both delighted. We cannot imagine how either entree could have been improved. Although we do not yet know where we will live, one thing we know for sure is that we will be back to Crepe Du Jour many times!

My husband and I happened to be in the neighborhood and Crepe Du Jour came up on Open Table. We gave it a try and loved it. We both started with soup. I had the shrimp and lentil soup and hubby had the creamy potato soup. We both were pleasantly surprised by how delicious they were. As for entrees, hubby had the beef bourguignon and loved it. I had the Salad Auvergnate and it was just okay. I would not order it again; however, that is really more about my preferences than it is about anything the restaurant did. The couple sitting next to us ordered the same salad and both loved it, this prompting me to try it. I would definitely go back. I look forward to trying the beef bourguignon!

Had mussels with fries for the first time and that is a very large dish! The mussels were okay but the fries were amazing! Had a salad and a savory crepe and was incredibly full. The times I'd been there previously my husband and I had split a salad, had our own entrees, and then split a dessert but since I was there with a group of women that wasn't possible and I ended up with WAY too much food. All good but a lot.

The food at Crepe Du Jour is beautiful - lovely combinations of flavor and fresh ingredients, cooked to perfection. My diniqng companions had the Croque Madame, Croque Nicois (a Croque Monsieur plus anchovies!), and Crepe Sicilienne. I had the Crepe Montagnarde - when I asked the waiter how to pronounce it properly, he had to look at the menu and then said "I have no idea - I have never sold that one before." I suppose he gets points for honesty! Luckily, whomever was in the kitchen was much more familiar with the dish and turned it out beautifully. A few of us shared Nutella crepe for dessert, which was luscious and satisfying. Shaky service, but delicious food.
