Eclair Bistro was outstanding!! The Martini Lounge was excellent for pre-dinner and post-dinner drinks. Our meals were fantastic in every sense. This was my wife and I first time going and will definitely be back again.

Terrific experience - very accommodating. Great cocktails, unusual menu and very nice recommendation on wine.

The price vs value was way out of whack. The server was great. It was a quiet setting and could really have done without the live entertainer that was not a very good. The value we received compared to the price charged for the 4 course meal was outrageous. We will not be back. Very disappointed on our Valentine’s Day dinner outing.

Was very much looking forward to my valentines date with my wife going into his night. The menu looked fantastic online and I was excited and ready. Imagine by disappointment to find out it was a limited 3 course menu with none of the options from the regular menu we wanted. And for this disappointment we got to pay $75/person. I should’ve just left but didn’t want the embarrassment of leaving an establishment I made reservations for a month in advance. I overheard the waitress tell another couple that the linited menu was listed on the website. This was not true. Nowhere on the website did it say the full menu would not be in effect. The restaurant definitely was not crowded enough to require a limited menu. This showed inexperience and laziness in my opinion. I will not be going back to this establishment. With that being said, our waitress was fantastic.

We absolutely loved dining at Eclair. The decor is clean and streamlined. The service was wonderful and T was super sweet to us! The meal was fantastic! I usually don’t eat desert, but once you saw the White Chocolate Cheesecake with sea salt caramel, I knew I had to have a slice, and I’m so happy I gave into temptation. Thank you for a super special pre-Valentine’s Day/Mardi Gras weekend meal; we will be back again!

This restaurant is cozy and tasty BUT the service was ridiculous. We sat down at 6:45 and dinner was not served until 8:15. There is no excuse for that. No apology from the manager, no explanation. We weren't even approached by a server until we asked for one fifteen minutes after being seated. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this restaurant.

Food was outstanding! Not too busy on a Thursday evening so noise level was great for a conversation. Loved the soft jazz music in the background. They have live music in the bar upstairs on Friday and Saturday so will definitely go again!

The food was excellent but there just wasn’t enough on the plate to justify the price. When my wife leaves hungry that’s when you know the serving was small.

We have been a number of times and in the past the service tended to be slow. This time everything was top notch service.

Menu had a lot of great choices. Crab cakes has good crunch on outside and moist inside. Short rib and filet pairing was excellent. Service was very friendly, helpful and professional. Ambiance great for date night or birthday. Live music upstairs was convenient afterward.
