They NEVER told us they only take AMEX and then my boyfriend had to go to their ATM and make 2 withdrawals incurring the fees. I️t wouldn’t have been that big of a deal, except I️ called to reserve and they never told us until I️t was time to pay...What if neither of us had a debit card on us?

Eating out alone can be awkward in some places but never here. I didn’t feel as tho I was taking up too much space or time. Very congenial staff just the right amount of attention
Wonderful food especially the rack of lamb cooked to perfection

Solid French cuisine, service is a little pokey, and special prep requests (medium or well done) are generally ignored the first time around.

This place was nice and cozy. Gave a homey and warm feeling as soon as you walked into the door. The service was okay, server was polite and funny. The food was okay except the beef bourguinon was salty.

I liked it but wanted to like it more. I love French food and I do like the menu. The execution on the appetizer we had (basically fried sardines) was mediocre. The steak was better than average, but I probably would try something else if I went back. Finally, the selection of cheeses and meats were small, but very good.

The hanger steak and fries were incredible, as were the escargots. The French onion was just okay. Service was VERY slow due to it being a Saturday night.

We miss not going to France this summer as we are staying in the USA for nearly 7 weeks so we wanted a restaurant to relive the memories. This place is it, fantastic! No complaints at all, good choice of menus, the best steak I have had in years! Fantastic ambiance, good choice of wines and not over priced! If you are in the area VISIT!

My wife and I ventured to the South Slope to try the French cuisine at Olivier Bistro. The food was delicious, the service fast, and I liked the bill. No air-conditioning, so it was like Paris on a hot day. Glasses of Kronenbourg (1664) and nice choice of wines definitely added to the atmosphere. Nous avons bien mangé. We had fun, I am sure we will try it again.

Really unhappy with my experience. Made an appointment through OpenTable and specified it was a birthday however it was never mentioned once we got there. Once we got there it took 20 minutes for someone to come to our table. We ordered red wine which was very hot (not room temperature). The foie gras was pure Apple sauce, we ordered mussels which we did not know came with a side of French fries so we asked for an extra side of French fries for a child. Once all of our entrees came with French fries we asked for the extra side to be cancelled which they refused. Did not know what to do with 3 entrees of fries. Also the restaurant did not have signs anywhere saying they do not accept MasterCard or visa! Only American Express. Which is strange! Signs only showed accept American Express is accepted. Overall unhappy. Came for my mothers birthday and will definitely not return again.

Loved the feel of the place, the food was excellent and the staff was welcoming and attentive. But I gave it only three stars for service because the kitchen was slow - took a long time for each of our courses to arrive.

Went to dinner on Sunday evening with my husband. This was our first time here. We really did enjoy everything we ate. I had escargot and he had French on oil soup for appetizers. For mains we had mussels and lamb chops. With cocktails, shared drink and coffee the total with tax and tip was $135. We will definitely be back next time we are in the mood for French food.

Excellent choice for our 4th of July. Came for Happy Hour, stayed for dinner, enjoyed the jazz duo, and the service was personal and awesome. The food was the star!! Authentic French it seemed. I had the Beouf Burgonion -- fantastic! Our pate was scrumptious, the pork bely appetizer was perfect. Recommend indeed!!!
