Praline Bakery & Bistro
In the Bistro upstairs, you can dine on all times favorites or on chef's creations like Lamb Stew, Steak Frites, Chicken Pot Pie, Crab Cakes and freshly made sweet and savory crepes.
The Sunday brunch is quite delicious. We came for Father's Day and our party had a wonderful experience. The eggs Benedict are especially good.
Beautiful roof terrace, excellent French brunch, friendly and accommodating staff. We will definitely be back!
Praline can always be relied upon for good food, sometimes outstanding food, and excellent service.
The atmosphere is pleasant, and the noise level is never overwhelming.
One of our favorites and we are regulars for brunch, lunch and dinner.
The waitress was attentive and friendly, and each one of us (we were four) enjoyed what he or she had ordered.
Ate on the patio. They’ve made it really attractive - if only the furniture was more comfortable.
A delightful gem tucked into a shopping plaza. Food is lovely, service friendly and attentive. On pleasant days/evenings be sure to sit on the patio.
As always the food was excellent what let it down was the service we tried to get the attention of our waiter/waitress but ended up running after them and we couldn’t find the manager to voice our concerns.
My husband and I took a friend visiting from out of town. The weather was nice enough to allow us to sit out on the patio. The waitstaff were friendly, cheerful and responsive without over-hovering or interrupting our chatter. The food was WONDERFUL -- our friend could not get over how much salmon was stuffed into her crepe, and my husband said his burger was perfect. Really an all-around success!
We enjoyed a lovely warm summer evening outdoors in the patio dining area. The patio has the feeling of a lovely garden with the beautiful planters full of flowers. Our seafood and avocado shrimp salads were wonderful. We're looking forward to coming back again soon.
Overall my son and me like to have a lunch or dinner at Praline after his Karate class.
We like merguez sandwich and pizza for kids and almond cake for dessert. The food is very good but I have bad experience today with the lady who manage the seat. I requested the couch seat because I have an issue with back and my son is special need. The couch helps him to sit down during lunch or dinner.
So the lady told me that she had 5 people and I cannot sit there. I left the couch but I stayed there for one hour and half and there were no guests. The 5 people were a ghost lol.
My poor back...
A good place to experience French bistro cooking. A good wine selection and decent if hurried service. Been here many times and will continue to come.
We love Praline! The food is delicious and reasonably priced, and our server went out of her way to make sure my sister got the dessert she had especially been pining for (they originally thought they might be out of it), which lived up to her high expectations! This is a favorite Easter brunch spot for us, but I would recommend Praline any time.
Very good food - fresh, simple, clean and very well cooked. A little pricey (esp drinks) but overall we were very pleased and will return, and recommend. Also, great to have European sized portions and not to be outfaced by the food on the plate. Many thanks - Julian
Always reliably excellent French bistro food in a charming, quiet setting.
Praline has long been one of our favorites. The food and service are good and the restaurant has a certain bistro charm. The downstairs bakery is outstanding and is an excellent place to stop for an afternoon coffee and patisserie.
The outdoor patio is a plus in fine weather,
Food not very good.. Omelette was poor
Delightful and relaxing place for catching up with old friends. Varied and not-the-same-as-every-other-place menu and attentive but not intrusive service.
Outstanding, as always!
We were able to sit outside on the terrace which was very nice and quiet. The food was good and the service was very attentive. There is free parking in the lot which is nice as well.
This is a terrific neighborhood restaurant with outstanding fare and service.
Local French Bistro is quite authentic, and the bread and bakery products are superb. Not a spot for a romantic evening but solid and reliable dining.
solid neighborhood eatery. we both had the duck special which was very good, with sweet potato puree and spinach mousse. surprised that we've not seen any new desserts given that the owner is a pastry chef?
We love Praline, but miss the "Frenchness." We were asked to order our dinner before we'd ordered a drink, told the specials or even looked at the menu. We felt rushed- once I had to grab my plate before it was removed with food still on it. And, PLEASE, don't call people in their 70s "you guys"!
My husband and I love this restaurant whether for lunch or dinner. My beautiful arranged Salade Nicoise on a large white square plate was delicious (actually much better than one I had at a hotel in Nice some years ago); my husband had the poached pear/candied pecan salad and topped it off with a Nutella/Strawberries crepe; he was in heaven.
Great food and service.
Bakery is awesome but restaurant is a bit overpriced for the ambiance and food quality you get
Our server, Brian, was exceptional! He was ready with drink refills before we even asked for one.!
One of the best of our local restaurants. The food is always well prepared and delicious. Service is very good. Grab a coffee and extraordinary pastry (best in town) from the downstairs level or linger at a tasty meal upstairs. Highly recommend!
We used to come here often, but in the last year sadly every visit has been marred by sloppy service, inattention to simple requests such as leaving a food allergy item off the plate, not bringing bread, minuscule portions, seafood that had been sitting around for hours such as a rubbery mussel in the seafood salad. The cooking still has great moments but the overall experience has declined toward dismal, sad because it was an outstanding neighborhood bistro for a long while. The bakery continues to be excellent.
Our lunch was delicious and served with a smile!
I brought 3 friends who were new to the place and they're coming back with friends!
Definitely worth a visit!
We started with smoked salmon that was delicious -- we'd come back to have this and wine anytime! My scallops were cooked properly and delicious, but the risotto was a bit heavy and gummy . The opera cake for dessert was excellent!
I love merguez baguette and my son pizza for kids. Almond cake is so yummy.
But I have an issue with the fresh fruit. I ordered that twice but it was not fresh at all.
sorry, I don't write reviews. Each visit is a new experience and to each their own!
Went for New Years Eve dinner, as it was one of the few that were available with a last minute reservation. Now I know why. Most items were fair to average. The only real plus for this place is location, if they had more local competition I think they'd probably be gone by now (or the bakery is supporting the restaurant, hard to day).
The duck confit with lentils was sensational!
Been going there for years. Great for brunch, lunch and dinner, or just coffee downstairs by the fire. Add in the bakery, and Pralines is hard to beat. Reasonably priced, and good value for the money.
A fabulous French local who has now brought in one of the area’s top restaurant managers from Great American Restaurant Group. Great gets better. Wonderful food. Great wine cellar. Save room for homemade pastries!!!!
Food was great as usually. Love the bakery.
Praline is tucked away in an out of the way shopping center, but it is worth the ride to find it. I had the rack of lamb - delicious. My friends had the risotto and scallops - also delicious. And we each had a marvelous dessert. I particularly recommend the signature dessert - walnut cake. Memorable in the best possible way.
