Absolutely fantastic experience. The food was incredible, especially the escargot and the trout! Beautiful view of Falls Park. Absolutely incredible night.

Outdoor seating was perfect for a summer evening and the view of the Falls for my out of town guest was wonderful. We both had the trout and finished every piece on our plate. It was very good. Service was good and we were not rushed. I was early and was even able to sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine beforehand. This is one of our favorite restaurants in Greenville.

The food was fine, but I'd say not great for the price. Service was friendly and also just fine. The real reason to come here is for the view of the waterfall. I'd suggest ordering some small plates and a beer or a bottle of wine and looking at the waterfall, rather than doing a full-on meal here.

Overall this is probably my favorite restaurant in Greenville... sitting outside by the Falls. (We usually bring our dog, and they always bring a dish of water for her.) The food choices are different every time we come, and I've not been disappointed with any of my meals. The wait staff is always friendly, HOWEVER the service can be pretty slow, so be prepared to sit awhile. If you're in a hurry for a quick lunch I would not eat here, but if you have the time to relax, enjoy the view, and whatever company you're with I highly recommend La Passerelle!

pleasantly surprised. The food was very good, I had the steak frites (a strangely difficult dish to get nicely done) which was very good. The next time I'm in Greenville, I will be going back just for the steak frites. My daughter had the ratatouille and my wife had the trout. Both were very good. My only complaint, and a very minor one, was the service. Our waiter seemed a bit distant and did not respond quickly.

Early lunch out by the Reedy River was a great way to celebrate a morning graduation. The patio is well shaded and overlooks the falls. The host was very friendly. Our server did an excellent job with refilling drinks and water. The food was delicious.

Long waits for food. Grilled bread listed as part of cheese board but did not come out with the plate. Bathroom out of service - asked to use public restroom which after the arts festival which had been going on that weekend was literally unusable. Food not consistently attractively plated. Overall disappointing. Fortunately delightful location and food tasted delicious despite poor service and presentation.

The food was good but menu selections were minimal. On this night, they were out of items that cut the menu down to a few selections. The service was not good. After an hour sitting at our table, the waitress asked if we wanted dessert when we had not even received our entrees. No apologies from her. Sitting outside, we were right beside the public restrooms which generated a lot of foot traffic. Very disappointed.

We came for brunch there day before Mother's Day. Great location with outdoor seating where you can watch the waterfall and people enjoying the park. Food was good, great croissants! Service was lacking. We had a reservation with requested a high chair but after waiting for 10 minutes and asking 3 different people, my husband had to go find one. Service was very slow. Server was polite but inattentive. Had to flag her down for water (she was supposed to leave a carafe on the table), didn't tell us the specials or soup/omelette du jour, went long periods without seeing her and had to flag her down again 10 or 15 minutes after finishing dessert to ask for our check. But the food and atmosphere were enough that I plan to give this place another try.

Loved Passerelle. From the food to the ambiance to the wait staff and the price. One of the nicest meals we've had in a while. Shrimp and crab app was to die for. Steak frittes prepared just right. Setting is at Reedy Falls. Perfect for sitting outside. Wouldn't know you're just off main. Put this on your must eat at list.

Great location. Service was very good. Food was good, but portions were very light for a brunch menu. Lack of appetizer choices (only fries). Disappointed with the “Frites “ ...expected them to be a little more like a French Bistrot. ...and would have loved a Steak/Frites offering...a staple in any bistrot. Would return for dinner, maybe not brunch.

We highly enjoyed our meal. The food was amazing. One of the best omelettes I have ever eaten. I was disappointed with the attentiveness of our server. I am unsure if he had too many tables, or if he just didn't care, but there were large time lapses between when we expected to see him and when he actually arrived.

Still, the location and the food would make me return again the next time I am in the area.

This meal was awful and overpriced. The appetizer of “crusty bread” was not a piece of baguette as indicated, but a couple of pieces of toast. Typically, in my experience, French restaurants give a piece of baguette without charge, but if you are going to charge, it shouldn’t be dry toast points. My steak frites was awful. The frites were clearly just big frozen fries which had been drenched in garlic butter so they were mushy, as opposed to authentic French crispy frites. My “bavette” steak was cooked well, but it was room temperature. I overheard from the next table someone else had the same issue. I made a reservation to celebrate my husband’s birthday, but a reservation was not necessary as almost nobody was there. Despite indicating on the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday, absolutely nothing was done to recognize the occasion. My husband ordered seared trout, and it was gray and had clearly sat for some time under a heat lamp, as the sauce on top of the fish had congealed. We barely ate half of our food, but when the server took our plates, no effort was made to inquire as to whether there was any issue. The meal was terribly overpriced, even if it were good quality, and the extremely poor quality just added insult to injury. AVOID THIS RESTAURANT AT ALL COSTS! Terrible food, overpriced, and disappointing.

Everything about this restaurant was surprisingly incredible! I went in expecting a mediocre service, with Americanized French foods. However, I received a wonderful array of foods just like I remember in France, super friendly and down to earth service, and a drink list that exceeded what I was expecting!
