French Market Bistro Ratings and Reviews
The food and the service have always been good. I was disappointed that there were no flowers on the tables for Valentine's Day lunch. I was also disappointed in the iceberg lettuce wraps. I think a butter or romaine lettuce would be more friendly to the dish and better tasting to the person eating it.
We have been to this restaurant several times with great success. This time, however, we were seated in a new addition small dining room. It was very cold in there. Management was aware of this issue and had small heaters to place next to each table. I would have preferred another table in a different room.
We love to eat at FMB. It’s an upscale casual neighborhood restaurant. The service is great. The staff is very friendly. Everyone knows your name. It’s recent renovations have made the dining experience even greater. Excellent wine list and the food is great too!
We went early to have a drink at the bar but it was packed, so we were seated at our table for our cocktails. We all shared the grilled oysters which were really good. I had the Red Fish on cedar plank, served with mashed potatoes and it was very light and mild. I can never pass up their Caramel Custard and it was delicious as usual. All in all, a really nice place for a good meal with friends.
We recently moved very close to the restaurant. We had heard about French Market Bistro and had always wanted to try it....now we are becoming regulars. The chargrilled oysters cannot be beat. They’re addictive. Raw oysters are FREEZING cold and the best I’ve ever had. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of FMB.
I received a Gift Card for my birthday, so we went out on a weekday night and had a wonderful meal. We shared the crabcakes for an appetizer. They were excellent. I had the Cedar planked salmon. In the description, it said cedar planked salmon with Tiger Butter. I wasn't sure what that was, so I ordered a side of Bernaise. The server then had them put the Tiger Butter on the side also. I tried it and it was very good. My husband had a 10 oz filet. It was cooked perfectly. I had the Flan for dessert. It was wonderful. It's not on many restaurant menus for dessert. My husband had the brownie.
