The food was so flavorful and rustic. Such a great menu. Everything we had was delicious. Beef Bourguignon was especially amazing. Bone marrow, Brussels sprouts, French onion soup. All great. The chef came out to say hello and on our way out as well. The staff was friendly accommodating. Great atmosphere.

Cozy cute restaurant and good food . Ordered Red snapper and Ribeye steak as a main dishes. The red snapper was very good especially the sauce came with fish was really good and it double the taste better. Also other starter was pretty good. Only thing bothered us was noisy at patio. The patio door slamming sound was really loud every time peoples are in and out. But good food and good service made up this little issue.
I will come back to try different food.

Wonderful French cuisine, beautifully presented and delicious. The portion sizes are ample, but not so large that you will be too full for dessert. That is a good thing, because the apple tart is amazing!

The prices are on the higher side, but for a special occasion, this restaurant is worth the price.

Excellent food and service. The mushroom tourte was delicious, likewise the duck confit and the chocolate mousse. I didn’t taste my companions’ food - I’m not sure what it was -but they were very pleased with what they had.

I love this restaurant. Owners are chef and hostess, most welcoming. French food is authentic, creative and excellent. Novel way of servicing non alcoholic beverages, ice tea, lemonade. The real basics without a ton of sauces. They have a back patio in the warmer months. Some great dishes I've tried, escargot in small potatoes, beef bourgignon served in a small pot to pour over noodles, great pate, always excellent fish. Mushroom appetizer to scratch at the door for. I would go every week if I could afford it.

Very good place, the food and the vibe. I am not sure whether it is common or because of the popularity of the resuratnt, I arrived a little bit eariler than my reservation time, the lady offered to give me a table first while my friend was finding a parking at that time but I have to finish my dinner within one hour, or I have to wait for my friend to have my table. FYI

We went for the dine LA event and were treated to great French cuisine. The prix fixe choices were good enough to come back. Of course the main menu had more selections. The ambiance was quiet and good for conversation.
Makes you also feel good when the chef/owner comes by to chat. It was an enjoyable dinner.

I was surprise on the noise level. We sat on the outside patio near Robertson. U can hear some of the traffic outside. When I tried to get a table inside, both the hostess n I agreed that inside was quite noisy. The food is ok, but the portion is relatively big. The service was EXCEPTIONAL. The chef, Christian, came out n greet very table. That’s a nice touch.

I had informed the restaurant of several food allergies ahead of time, and I spoke in detail with our server about them before ordering, and the server also consulted with the chef. Despite this caution, all three courses I ordered appeared on the table with an ingredient on my allergy list (which the kitchen had printed out), including one ingredient which I had identified as of particular concern. The mistakes were discovered before I ate anything, but given the kitchen's lack of attention, I would never go back.

I've wanted to try this restaurant for a long time, and I took advantage of Dine LA, and the no corkage Tues/Weds. This restaurant did not disappoint. I wish I had not waited so long to try it!
We had the Lamb Shank and Beef Bourguignon. Amazing flavors! Everyone, including chef and owner were very friendly! We will be back!

THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT BUT THE COMFORT LEVEL AND DECOR WERE MISSING IN THIS LITTLE FRENCH RESTAURANT. UNFORTUNATELY, THEY CANNOT SERVE COCKTAILS BECAUSE THEY ONLY HAVE A LICENSE FOR WINE.

WAITERS AND STAFF WERE VERY FRIENDLY BUT CHAIRS WERE UNCOMFORTABLE AND DECORATION WAS A BIT TOO "HIPPIE" AND FUNKY FOR OUR TASTE

For all of being a neighborhood style restaurant, it was significantly overpriced. I spent less at Bouchon when it was open. Also, for some reason, no valet. Big problem with parking, especially when it was raining as it was the evening I dined. Portion sizes were small. The good things about it was good food and they had inexpensive wines which actually paired well with the food. The somm did a good job.

The ambiance was charming, cozy and romantic. The escargots were different and wonderful. I had the cod, which was delicious and melted in my mouth...my wife had the chicken, which she described as tender and the combination of the herbs transported her back to Paris where she lived briefly years ago. We would definitely recommend this restaurant. What a find!

A Food Affair is a completely delightful restaurant. As fans of french food who have spent a significant amount of time in Paris, Provence, Burgundy, etc., we are consistently impressed by the authenticity of the food here, which is always Gallic in inspiration, but not slavish in imitation of, for example, specifically brasserie or bistro food. The service is wonderful, and you are made immediately welcome. It really feels like a cozy little francophile refuge in the middle of Los Angeles.
