Not my first time at the restaurant but this time it was even better than during our last visit. We were warmly greeted at the door by the owner and sat outside by the water. Ordered escargots and the endive salad as our first course. Delicious! We then had the duck which was crispy and moist and the veal blanquette that was also good. Beatrice was our server. She is from Paris and did an amazing job ! We love her!


We will be back again!

Extremely disappointing especially the wait staff. The waitress actually argued with me over an incorrect glass of wine that was brought to the table. The food was subpar for this type of restaurant.

The ambiance was nice. It is in the style of a French cafe. However, you better bring a lot of money if you decide to try this place out. For example; Dover Sole $55. Onion soup $9.95; French Fries $7.00; Pate appetizer $28. We had three of us for dinner with no alcohol or soda and the bill was $144. The atmosphere was nice but the prices were a big put off.

So disappointed. We’ve been here 3-4 times before the food is fine and the service has always been slow, but we put up with it because our friends love French food.
Last Saturday we sat down promptly at 6:30 and our friends arrived 5 minutes later. We ordered drinks, had appetizers, salads a bottle of wine and our main entrées. We were having a very nice time when the manager or owner came over and said somebody was waiting for a table and could we leave.
We were shocked! He just asked us to leave after we just spent $300 at his restaurant in less than two hours! My husband was so upset he went back and told him so. He denied that he asked us to leave but we all heard the same thing, he had a table of 4 waiting for the table and could we leave.
It was rude and unappreciative. We won’t be going to the restaurant again. I’m sure they don’t care but I feel better for letting other customers know what kind of place it is.

An all-around disappointment. Glacially slow service (even by the low standards one expects on a Saturday evening), mediocre, bland food...(maybe the first French restaurant I have ever been to where the chef must not have heard of those wacky condiments salt and pepper....) escargot and fore gras were utterly forgettable...and to top the evening off the waitress was completely unapologetic about throwing an extra bottle of wine on our tab....guess we’ll keep searching for a good French bistro in North Palm Beach County....

I have been to the Cafe multiple times for the in the past 7 years. Each was excellent and why I return for special occasions.

However, this was not one of them. The onion soup was exceptionally salty! Tasted like they doused it with celery salt.

The veal Osso Buco was prepared with an unusual sauce that did not pair wth the dish. It was not complimentary and harsh. It also was excessively salted or spiced.

Every restaurant has a bad night. I will come back but I thought you know.

We were underwhelmed. We follow a gluten-free diet, and came to this restaurant because they offered a wheatless chocolate cake dessert. Before being seated, we told our server of our dietary needs. Her response was, "I can guide you." OK. First, without asking, we were led outside. Second, when we chose a table, the server wanted to separate the two tables for seating another couple right next to us. We were only the 3rd occupied table at this point. We prefer to not dine with strangers on our shoulders, so we had to find another table. As to "guiding" us on gluten-free options, what we heard included, "You should be alright", "I think that's OK" and similar not very helpful "guidance." On several occasions, we had to ask explicitly to check with the chef on a question -- we can only hope that was actually done.

In conclusion, our meals were average, service was weak, but the dessert was excellent (and, presumably, gluten-free). Going forward, we won't be including this property on our lunch rotation. If you are from cold climates, the sunny, warm marina environment may cover up the weaknesses we noted. But, for locals, there are just too many good options to be underwhelmed.
