We hadn’t been there for over a year. We soon remembered why. The food just wasn’t very good. In a town with so many awesome choices, we could do much better.

Was a little chilly, so I sat inside, although the outside seating was quite lovely with its evening lighting. There was not as much "atmosphere" inside. Service was very good. Had the mussels Passerelle (saffron cream sauce - WOW!) and trout to follow. Lovely, lovely dinner. Definitely would go there again!

This was a mixed evening. We had not been to Passerelle in awhile and were looking forward to it. Started out well, good service , appetizers and some champagne. But then it took forever to get our entrees. Apparently one order was holding up the others. So the steak and frites for $27 arrived lukewarm, dry steak as it was already sliced and warmed over what appeared to be frozen fries. The chicken entree was burned, and covered up with some gravy, but as least hot. The root vegetable tartiflette was delicious as was the arugula salad. Chocolate mousse was good for dessert. I just expect more at this price point, especially house made fresh fries when that is the only thing served with the steak. The ambiance is a little lacking as well, just seems tired. Not sure there is enough here to return.

We ordered the crab salad and the beet salad. The crab salad was canned crab on a bed of lettuce with cucumbers and was not good. The beets in the beet salad were raw and not pickled like the description on the menu that was served with unripened pears. The French fries were the only thing good that we ate. Nice outdoor seating and atmosphere. Too bad the food is bad.
