The food has just been ok for me lately. The dishes are "overladen" to where it's hard to make out anymore what's in them and they lack taste. I'm sorry! I still really love it there though and the service as always very good!

French Meadow never disappoints and this time our expectations were exceeded. There was no abbreviated menu due to the pandemic so we got to pick from the many fabulous options. We feel safe as plastic dividers have been set up between all the booths. In other words, except for the masked servers, things are very much business as usual and we can enjoy French Meadow indoors throughout the fall winter and spring

Loved the chicken wild rice soup and will definitely order it again because it was very delicious (more brothy based than creamy based) which is my preference, but it was served luke warm at best. I wish it was served piping hot! I will request this next time I order it.

It was good food, but overpriced, and the server checked on us a grand total of twice, and we were one of 3 full tables.

Excellent Old Fashioned cocktails. Lovely atmosphere protected from breezes outside on their back patio. Food was amazing, we had the GF mac and cheese and blackened fish tacos. All was fresh, well seasoned and delicious.

The food was amazing and the ambience was quite comforting. My friend and I had made a couple of requests to add more ingredients to our coffee and the serving staff was beyond amazing, making sure we were always well taken care of! Bring my family here next because of the great service and food!

Had exactly the same salad as my go to order at the Lyndale Ave location, but it was sub par at best. I couldn't finish it and am unlikely to return.

Service was horrible, our waiter was nowhere to be be found and when asked a question he told us to go inside. I will give it another try because I think the place is good but I will avoid his section at all cost.

Staff were very accommodating. We asked for patio dining but were soon pestered by a couple of bees so we asked to move inside which the waiter did promptly.

The food was very good. We ordered the breakfast burrito and corn blueberry pancake. Highly recommend the burrito. The pancake was good but not exceptional. Service was very good.

Food was a little under seasoned and we're just given the bill after an ample amount of time with no service. Would have liked another drink but we were never asked. I ordered the blackened fish tacos but didn't feel like they were blackened at all.
