Excellent beet salad, great wine choices at a fair price and interesting entree choices. Been to South of France many times and this place similar to the bistros I visited there. Suggest more seafood dishes, however.

Very loud. Didn’t do very well in regards to incorporating French style foods and taste. The ambience was mediocre. Waitresses were GREAT. Couldn’t ask more for them. My food came out lukewarm. Creme Brûlée was excellent, needed a little warmth too it tho. Fish was adequate but once again, the French style taste was not there. To claim it is a French Restaurant is not the smartest thing to do. It’s more of an over priced American restaurant. Once again though, servers were excellent.

The food was very good, especially the trout, but the highlight was the people. From the host/ hostess to the servers and even the chefs, who pitched in. Everyone was gracious, welcoming, and knowledgeable, making the experience very enjoyable. Thanks to all of you.

Santiago, our server, was very knowledgeable and attentive. Our pre theatre dinner was perfect in every way. We were welcomed promptly and our special request honored. The food is always exceptional and we were very pleased with the mussels and trout Passerelle has become one of our favorite spots in Greenville!

Everything about our visit was just "OK." and nothing to write home about. I think we will return once the weather improves and the outdoor seating is fully opened. We ordered from the Restaurant Week menu and although the muscles are always good, the other items we had were bland. The choice of music playing (modern rock/pop) and the basketball game on the tv really through off the ambiance I was hoping for on a date to a French restaurant.

My wife and I went to dinner as part of restaurant week and did the 3 course special. We have been wanting to try this place for awhile. It is really overly average. We stated with the Cheese platter and the Cheeses were good but he Baguette was very thinly sliced and had to be a day old. We then went in the apps of the Beet Salad which was good and the Mussels we just Meh. No flavor in the broth and the Mussels were not the best quality. For our main course I had the Trout which was fresh and cooked perfectly but they so over did the béarnaise sauce on the vegetables and over cooked the capers to make them as hard as Pepper corns. It wreck a very nicely cooked piece of fish. My wife had the Vegetarian entree and it again was not well executed. Dessert we had the lemon creme brûlée and I had the apple Tartin. These were very forgettable desserts. They were understaffed and not very attentive to service. They were giving us New utensils for our main and just dropped them in the table without clearing the other utensils from our apps. Overall, way too many other options in Greenville than to bother going back.

I had an absolutely great dinner from the restaurant week menu with excellent service. Our table was very near two other tables but it wasn't noisy and I could not hear their conversation and I don't think they could hear mine. The mussels were especially great and as were the escargot and the crème brulee. My dinner companion had never been there and was very happy with the meal.

It was restaurant week so it was busy. Maranda was making drinks and taking orders. She did a great job. 3 of us had the tasting menu which was fantastic. 3 ordered from the menu. It was noisy because the restaurant was full. Restaurant week is a great way to try restaurants.

Lovely dinner celebrating family visiting. The best escargot in town! Mussels also were amazing and a meal in themselves, great for sharing. Trout was so tender and flavorful. Beef bourguignon was also delicious. We were lucky enough to get a table during restaurant week with 3 courses , a great value.

My husband and I had a wonderful lunch at this lovely location on a beautiful day. Confusion about Greenville Restaurant Week was handled nicely by the staff. From the GRW site I had made reservations through Open Table for 1:30 thinking this would qualify for the special. It did not but staff handled it well. I love mussels and theirs were the best I'd ever had. My husband ordered the escargot which were wonderful. He also enjoyed his tuna. The cheese plate was good but would have been nicer if the cheeses had been identified. The staff were very nice but spread thin between the several dining areas.

I brought my mother here for brunch on a Sunday. She is a former French teacher and I thought it would be fun for her. We are new to the area and have been trying out various places. Our table was right by the kitchen and the wait staff congregated there to have extended conversations. It was just distracting and a bit noisy. But while one of the young men who delivered food was up there he was picking his nose, flicking it, and then carrying plates out to tables. It just kind of grossed us out. My mom loved her French toast so the visit was overall very successful but not what I had hoped. I brought my mother here for brunch on a Sunday.

What a pleasant evening at this delicious restaurant. This was my first time dining here and I thought it was very good. The brussel sprout soup was excellent. So were the scallops and escargot. The beet salad was good. After that, i wanted to try more, but we were too full. Will definitely be back.

This was a very standard French experince. Our guests were not accustomed to this type of dining. The beet salad, crusty bread and mussels were phenomenal. The steak frites were very chewy (also very French) were not popular!
The wine was awesome!! We will come back!

My wife’s food preferences are vegan and Passerelle’s chef accommodated them quite well with two very tasty dishes. I had some delicious sautéed scallops and a quite large serving of beautifully prepared steamed mussels. An altogether very satisfying meal for the both of us at a reasonable price which included a good bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.

The food has a French flair, and ingredients are totally fresh. I had a a main dish salad for lunch. It was made from arugula, white "fromage" (cheese), pickled strawberries,a honey pepper vinaigrette, and shrimp that I added as a protein. It was SO delicious and not like anything I've ever made myself. I am gluten free, and our wonderful server was very helpful and friendly in helping me select my order. My husband had a soup of the day and a "day after Thanksgiving" turkey sandwich with an aioli and sage, served on a very nice baguette---he said both were delicious. I wished I could visit Passerelle more often---we certainly will next time in town. the restaurant is charming and on a warm enough day, has beautiful outdoor dining overlooking the Reedy River. I made a reservation on Open Table and was glad I did!
