This a great neighborhood restaurant with delicious food. It was Hayden's first night as a server and he did a terrific job. The Chef/Owner is hard working and appreciative of you dining there.

Exceptional as always. It is our go to restaurant for a date. The food is top notch, cozy and intimate atmosphere and the chef always has little attentions for us. Highly recommend it.

What wasn’t our favorites
Steak and fries, steak below avg
Chesse and honey appetitizer
Rind was to much and the cheese too runny
Onion soup flavor was good cheese over melted and very stringy
Filet Mignon cooked prefect
But the bearnaise was over cooked or left standing too long
Maybe it should be served on the side
Finally salad dressing was barely noticeable

So glad we have this neighborhood BYO close by. My partner's filet and my duck breast were both very good. The salad with pear and bleu cheese was also delish as was the creme brulee-true creme brulee. I'm always happy when I find a good one. The staff and chef were all very nice and accommodating. We will be going back!

The menu was somewhat abbreviated from that shown on its website. The wait for food was enormous (kitchen, not waiter problem). The food was poor. My wife ordered rare duck and received overcooked/dried out duck. My "Le Mer" had only a small amount ofseafood

This was the first foray for all four of us into indoor dining since the pandemic started, so we were a bit nervous. But we needn't have been. The tables were really far from each other, and the window next to our table was open slightly, which we were glad of.

Service was prompt, and the server did not hover. She was attentive but efficient and left us "alone to talk," which is exactly what diners want during a pandemic.

The chef is French, I believe, and the cuisine is definitely French. Everyone's entree was beautifully prepared: my duck was tender but crispy and the accompaniments were tasty. The beet salad I ordered could easily have been shared by all four of us. As it was, I shared it with one other person, and it was so fresh and delicious that we finished the whole thing between us.

We also shared a chocolate marquise for dessert--dense and flavorful, with lots of sweet and bittersweet nuances.

It feels like the chef customs each dish for each guest. While it may not be true, it's nice to leave the restaurant feeling that way.

Overall it was an underwhelming experience. The onion soup lacked flavor. The main courses were good. They didn’t have much left in the way of dessert.

From a social distancing experience it was good as tables were spread apart and a bottle of hand sanitizer was on each table.

I hope after the pandemic this local restaurant can revive itself

My husband my hubby had magret de canard (duck); I had the fruit de mer (seafood pasta). Both entrees were cooked to perfection! The appetizer escargots bourguignon was full of flavor. Service was great! We talked to the chef briefly, nice man!! Quaint, quiet little place; we will be back!

Be sure to visit their well stocked gourmet showroom and pick up some of the best pasta and olive oils. BYOB.

The place looks lovely but that’s it. The service was slow & we had to ask a couple times to get what we needed. The meal presentation was nice but only one meal out of 4 was hot- the other 3 just warm. I ordered the filet & the bearnaise sauce had congealed. The scallops were chewy & old. The chicken dish was unremarkable. The chef was very nice & gave us a $50 gift card as an apology. The restaurant only had a few patrons, so there was no excuse for our food not to be hot & the slow service

We spent our Valentines dinner for the very first time and unfortunately it will be the very last time, even though the food was very good the service was virtually non existent.
We had to wait for our table and when we were seated it was right next to the service station and we asked to change it. They obliged.
The only waitress in the entire restaurant came over after we sat for approx 10 min. She said she would be right back and then waited on a table that came in about 15 min after us. Finally she took our order and then waited again for the appetizers. After there 2 hours. The desserts came and no one asked us if we wanted coffee. We had to open our own bottle of wine. I had a $10 discount which I told them initially and she couldn’t figure out how to take off the discount; meanwhile another table was complained about the service. I couldn’t wait any longer, so after I wrote a check for the total we left!
Why wasn’t there other wait staff in a crowded holiday occasion?
Poorly managed !!
Gordon Ramsey; they need your help!!

This place is truly a hidden gem. The food is AMAZING....the muscles appetizer is a must have. My family has eaten here several times and out of the 20+ dishes, they were all consistently good. The staff is so hospitable, you feel like you are dining at someone’s house. I highly recommend it and can’t wait to go back!

I tried the new recipe, poulet à la crème moutarde, using smoked chicken breast. The smokiness is quite pronounced, but I thought it good. I just thought the heaviness of the sauce a bit much. As for starters, the tartare de saumon is an outstanding preparation.

Our son and his wife were visiting from Mass. and he had a craving for escargot. I knew of some restaurants that served snails, but not at lunch. So a quick Google/Open Table search for French restaurants near me came up with Bonne Assiette and not only did the online menu list escargot, but it listed two different snail dishes. What a find. Assiette is a cute little French restaurant. It was quiet at lunch, but the service was amusing and attentive, and the food was terrific. I definitely recommend it for lunch, and based on the dinner menu, for an evening meal as well.

We went to Bonne Assiette with our young child. We grabbed an early resy to not disturb other patrons. Despite a quiet atmosphere, wait staff was considerate of our family dining.
Food was delicious. Service attentive. Very rustic cuisine: duck, escargot, heirloom carrots, stinky cheese. Delicious. I would go back with friends and family or recommend to others.

This was our second time visiting and this restaurant does not disappoint. It's a charming little out of the way place- in looks a bit more like a cafe or bistro - in menu, closer to "fine dining" My husband had the Moules Frites and both the mussels and fries were absolutely delicious. Definitely the best he's ever had. Also tried the duck which was wonderful. I had the Crevettes Monaco. (shrimp, mushrooms, gnocchi in a creme sauce.) It was fantastic!
