The chicken cheddar apple salad was amazing!
Always an excellent experience!
Old school restaurant where the manager and servers chat and care about your meal and your day. Twinkling lights bring a bouyant and calm brightness to a delicious meal in a friendly atmosphere.
Birthday celebration. Always outstanding. At each and every location. Reilly was our waitress and was perfect.
Great ambience. Very private dining. Personable, friendly service. Quality, wholesome food. Good wine list.
This is one of our favorite restaurants!
The food is always great!
Try the avocado toast!!
Thanks - especially for noting the avocado toast, something we are proud of :)
It’s close by..the menu is varied..the staff is friendly...the service was very good!
it is very hard to hear in there which makes it difficult for those who wear hearing aids but otherwise a great place!
Great food, great service (we loved our waitress!) and overall a great dining experience. We all highly recommend!
Glad to find a St. Paul restaurant with a good, hearty, vegan breakfast. I hate having to drive to Minneapolis for vegan dinning. We'll be back!
Food and service was excellent.
There are great food choices and the salads are delicious. The courtyard is lovely. I’ve enjoyed breakfast here also my only complaint is that the service can be slow. Now during COVID it may be understandable, but I’ve had other dinner there when it is slow. The frustrating thing is they don’t check in while you wait so no chance to order bread or something. I keep going back because the food and atmosphere is great.
I always enjoy French Meadow with their healthy choices and tasty food.
I’ve been going here for years and was so excited to bring my friend for the first time and it was a huge disappointment. I talked it up and we unfortunately had a bad service experience. Our server was not friendly or attentive and did not look happy to be working. I tried to be extra enthusiastic and friendly but it didn’t help. I wish it could have been better since I praised it but I don’t think we’ll be going back to say the least.
We went there to celebrate my Birthday and our dessert was not complimentary.
Birthday lunch with good friends.
So nice to meet a friend for lunch in a comfortable chic environment with healthy options as well as fantastic pastries. Wonderful neighborhood gem.
Delicious organic food. I loved the extra safety plexi glass above and between booths. The food was beautiful, service excellent!
Delicious cappuccino. We had the eggs Benedict and I forgot that it came with a salad I would’ve liked potatoes or something Else offered to me. They have a full bar which is nice.
A very pleasant experience, despite the 50° temperature. Good food, good service, nice atmosphere.
The actual food was very good. 5 Stars but the coffee was cool and bitter. We asked for new mugs and was promptly served fresh coffee. Tasted good. Next refill was bitter again.
This will not deter us from returning as staff and the food was exceptional!
I got avocado toast and a latte. Delicious. I love coming here for brunch with a friend.
Amazing food (loved the plant based selections) and great ambience. Our group sat inside, but we peaked at the outdoor space in the back... would be awesome in nicer (warmer) weather. Definitely recommend!
Great experiance and felt very safe! Food and service was wonderful.
The service and atmosphere were wonderful and the food unique and delicious!
We always enjoy going to your restaurant! Pleasant atmosphere, great food and good cocktails! Service is fabulous, can’t wait to go back!
Our party of 3 each tried something different for breakfast. The burrito is HUGE and so good, Eggs Benedict are delicious, and the Omelette with greens is just enough to satisfy and enjoy!
Food great, service wonderful - not noisy so we could hear each other talk. Would definitely go back.
Food was excellent as always.
Great neighborhood spot.
A menu that can meet a wide range of group eating requirements.
Food and service was excellent . Great menu with many options. Would recommend !
I love this place. The atmosphere is relaxing and the food is amazing.
Broccolini was too salty but otherwise great food
My wife and I went here for a short Valentine's Day celebration. The beef rib, Rachel sandwich, and fries were all very good. There was a deal on bottles of wine that was gone, but the waitress did her best to provide an equivalent deal. The service was a little slow and the time we could stay was a little short due to the state's health restrictions, but the experience was great overall!
our brunch at the French Meadows restaurant on Grand Ave in St Paul was a delight and lovely -- everyone raved about the food -- and they paid extra attention to my sisters 80th birthday -- thanks -- I expect we'll all return again and again -- thanks for the food, service and ambience -- g
Valentines Day. The food is normally really good, but on Sunday it just wasn’t.
Brunch, slow but friendly wait service, baseline okay drinks, food was subpar no love/finesse.
Took the family out for dinner for 1st time since Covid. Received outstanding service and tasty food in a safe "Covid-era" dining room. Tables were well spaced apart from one another, and staff took all necessary precautions to make us feel safe as possible.
Food and service is always great at French Meadow.
