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.

Sat in the patio overlooking the falls and enjoyed an unhurried dinner at sunset. (Be sure to reserve a patio space in advance). Delightful. We shared mussels Passerelle for a starter and enjoyed plump tender mussels in a rich sauce and a plentiful serving. My dinner was a summer heirloom salad with homemade ricotta; decadent and wonderful. The pastries for dessert were fine, but I would not choose them again.
Passerelle is a good choice for quiet dinners with a spouse or date or to bring out of town guests. We always eat on the patio, because it’s one of the most special settings in Greenville and elevates the experience.

The setting in the park is lovely however the food was a major disappointment. We shared three of the brunch offerings but were not impressed with any of them. The dishes were under-seasoned and bland. While our server did a good job, we attempted to catch the attention of another server to ask for something as our server was otherwise occupied but we were ignored. Overall it was a very forgettable meal.

Hi Nathan! I would love to share the sauce with you. It is a spicy mornay sauce. Mornay is a milk based sauce that is thickened with a roux and then cheese is added. We just add a blend of creole spices to it. I will send you our recipe; it will just need to be scaled down for you. Thank you for your business and we cannot wait to serve you again very soon.
