A farm to table philosophy serves as the foundation for all of the items on the menu at Maison Giraud in Pacific Palisades, CA. This can best be seen by the Wednesday menu created around all of the freshest items available at the nearby Santa Monica Farmers� Market.

With a baker and dining room, options on the Maison Giraud menu include breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and dessert selections. There is a fantastic wine list as well, with everything pairing perfectly with the foods available. Examples of choices at Maison Giraud include the signature flat tart full of fresh vegetables, the watermelon gazpacho, the duck filet with apricot, baby turnips, spring onions and orange gastrique, or the chicken Catherine with pearl onions, purple potato, broccolinis, bacon and garlic jus.

Very sad to see Maison Giraud close. Looking forward to Alain Giraud's next great venture.

I will be very sad to see this restaurant leave the Palisades . The food is really special and not of the garden variety of foods you so often find . Everything is well prepared with a good presentation .
The ambiance allows for a nice classy place to meet with people and be able to talk without shouting . I wish everyone all the best, wherever you may decide to go .

This restaurant is closing down in July for renovation. Food is good as usual. Our rib eye steak special was a bit tough with many tendons. The duck was perfectly cooked.

We had another delicious dinner at Giraud. We took friends who had never been there before, and they loved it too. Every dish was terrific. The presentation was great.

The oysters were a small local species from Baja California, rather than others from the northwest, east coast, or PEI - all of which have been better. Once served, the service was
inattentive, e.g., trying to order more bread, dessert and coffee.

We have dined at Maison Giraud several times. The food is still good, but at last Sunday’s visit, the service had deteriorated to the point of awful.

A previous waiter was excellent. Now there is some seedy French guy who does not listen and is a bit lacking in honesty. I had to tell him three times we did not want a chocolate soufflé. I asked that my duck entrée be “not pink.” It came out quite pink. Undercooked poultry is seriously unhealthy.

When I received the check, I noticed that this entrée was billed at $2 above the menu listed price.
Undercooked and overpriced. While this restaurant may gain an extra dollar or two, it may not be in business long if it persists in petty scams of this sort.
