    Loved the whole experience, however, the $9.00 fee to use a credit card is out of line. We eat out quite often and have never been charged that kind of fee! How is it that only in your restaurant does this surcharge exist??? Also, told you we were celebrating a birthday yet nothing was done . Yet we saw candles lin desserts going past us. The ambience and food were lovely but those things took the edge off what would have been otherwise wonderful.

    Junior was a fabulous server. He was comfortable describing the items on the menu. I was very appreciative that he commented about the intensity of the spices. Seldom do you find a sever who has tasted the dishes on the menu and has the knowledge to guide you through the menu. He was delightful. And the food was great.

    Outstanding food, drinks, service and ambiance. I had the whitefish and my friend had the salmon and we split the bistro salad to start. All were excellent. We very much enjoyed it.

    My last experience at Aboyer (a year ago) was good, but the last one was mediocre at best. We had the escargots (very bland), the mussels (completely flavorless), fries (way overdone), the steak au poivre (pretty good but *very* heavy on the peppercorn), the profiteroles (hardest, stalest puffs I have ever had), and two cocktails (good). Service was attentive, but they totally forgot a request about the happy birthday candles we requested. That said, they did offer two glasses of champagne. Walking in, we were surprised the place was almost empty on a Friday night. It soon became clear why - it has seen much better days.

    We had a fun time with delicious dishes & drinks on the patio last night. We brought out-of-town friends from the East & West coasts who thoroughly dining at Aboyer as we always do. The young woman provided friendly and conscientious service adding to the enjoyment of the evening.

    What an amazing place?! My wife and I visited for the first time and tried their Happy Hour as our starting point. Simply said, it far exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be back...likely on a weekly basis! The food was great, the service even better, and the atmosphere (we sat outside) was perfect.

    I have eaten there many times and always had a much better experience than last night. The restaurant was slammed with lots of 530 arrivals for the Bastilke day menu, and the staff seemed to be new and had no clue what was going on. We had to wait an hour For our first course. And the fish course was undercooked and I had to send it back. The expediter was excellent in saving the day once he went back to the kitchen, but it was an unpleasant experience this time.
