Very busy and full restaurant. Lucked out with a corner table. Otherwise definitely would have been uncomfortable with so many full tables so close together. Waitress was super busy with lots of tables luckily we were not in any hurry. First time eating there and was going for gluten free meal. Had the fried chicken sandwich and firecracker slaw as a side dish. Did not like the flavor of either the sandwich or the slaw very bitter was expecting firecracker to be spicy or tangy not bitter so maybe just personal preference or misunderstanding what firecracker flavor is supposed to mean.
Great food, safe surroundings, excellent service, great value
Dining on the sunny patio punctuated by plants all around was very pleasant. My organic salad had the very best organic Romaine lettuce and very tasty maple dijon dressing with fresh apple slices - tasty. The coffee was aromatic and our server was very accommodating, pleasant and eager to please. My husband's burger was superb. We always look forward to having lunch at French Meadow in September/October to take pleasure in seeing the three red (Japanese?) maples but alas, our drought and hot summer was too much for them this year, we think. Very positive experience all around. Thank you.
All was good except for minimal parking. Very difficult to find any place to park.
Their back patio is amazing in the fall. You do have to deal with the occasional bee, unfortunately, but no more so than any other patio this time of year. Their lattes are delicious :)
Too noisy!! Neither my friend nor I could hear each other across the table. The noise level ruined our experience.
It was a beautiful evening in the patio!
Very tasty breakfast. Good portion size. Very friendly and efficient waitress.
As always, food and service were great. Server was very pleasant and engaging. Only complaint is they were a little skimpy on the fries. Everyone ran short so we ordered a family order. We love French Meadow, both locations.
Our server was great! Food was good, coconut cake was wonderful!
We had the Curry with chicken and the Blackened Fish Taco and really enjoyed both dishes. The combination of flavors in the curry was excellent. I can't wait to try something else off the menu.
Love the patio!
Raves for the flatbread appetizer and the roasted beet & pear salad. The salmon croquettes were dry.
Had avocado toast, too salty and otherwise tasteless. My companion had the breakfast quesadilla, very greasy and somewhat burnt. I will not go there for breakfast again.
Beautiful night to sit out on their patio. Food was amazing. We started with roasted Brussel sprouts and Rosemary potato flatbread - so awesome and so much! We took 1/2 home for tomorrow! The blackened fish tacos were amazing and again such generous portions. The scallops-and especially the ginger carrot sauce were melt in your mouth good. And finally the steak salad was perfect as always
Our family celebrated a birthday of a now nine year old and it was fantastic outside on the patio. The owner was there and made sure everts was going well for the celebration! The food was delicious and beautifully cooked and we brought home leftovers to enjoy another meal at home! The pastries were a celebration in themselves! I highly recommend the French Meadow Bakery!
We loved the food & the variety of the menu options.
The food was excellence!
Excellent as usual.
It was my first time at French Meadow and I enjoyed it very much! Food was delicious, back patio very quaint! Loved all of the planters with flowers, kale, herbs, etc!! Service a little slow but probably because of short staff like every place else!
My friend of 19 years and I always choose French Meadow for breakfast when we get together. The food and service has never disappointed in all those years, and this weekend was no exception.
Great tasting quality food. What else do you need? Seating booth was spacious and the ambience was very cozy and comfortable. It was pretty quiet at 1030 am on a weekday. I would stop by here almost everyday if I lived nearby.
The food was great fresh and tasty.
i highly recommend this charming bakery/cafe. The outside deck is spacious and full of blooming plants. Lovely for a pleasant weekend brunch. We will have to try dinner there, too.
Great place to meet a friend for lunch or dinner.
The outdoor eating area was lovely, the service (including trainee) great and the food wonderful.
We like going here because members of our group are gluten-free. The service was just terrible this time however. We had to find a server to order, we had to request more water/coffee.
The service wasn’t very good. Our server seemed very annoyed by our requests / questions. Wasn’t very helpful at all.
Beautiful patio, stellar service, fabulous food as usual!
Tasty food and charming service. We were delighted and will be back soon!
Awesome as always.
Casual ambience; interesting menu selections; something for everyone.
Enjoyed a nice evening at French Meadow Bakery on Grand. We were able to make a last minute reservation for five on a Saturday night. Food was good (not great), wait staff friendly and helpful, atmosphere really pleasant. We will eat there again.
Breakfast burrito is the best I’ve ever had.
All are great but Anna is absolutely amazing!
The SPA salad is phenomenal! We also had a great server.
Had a nice lunch on the back patio area. Fish tacos were really excellent, with plenty of greens. Service was solid and attentive. Great neighborhood spot!
Patio was the choice and the reservation rewarded that. Service a wee bit slow, but fine. Food was large amounts. Quesadilla was a bit dry.
Still an enjoyable and good choice
The server kept reiterating that the fries were called Pommes Frites in a condescending unnecessary way. Like I get it, it's "French" Meadow but you knew what I meant.
Great meal just out celebrating the weekend!
