French Table - Bradenton Beach
It has a cozy French atmosphere.
Christophe, the chef, will prepare you delicious dishes from the south of France with fresh products, and typical french bread as well.
Marieke will be glad to attend to you, with the help of her daughters, to ensure you have a pleasant evening in their little family restaurant.
We are repeat diners, so somewhat biased, but standard is always wonderful. Food is beautifully prepared and the service unobtrusive but extremely attentive.
bien françaisUn repas très bon les patrons très aimables
very good meal
I was very impressed with the food at French Table. You could taste the freshness in all of the dishes we ate. I was also very pleased with the portions - they were just the right amount which meant when it came time for dessert, I had enough room :) The restaurant is owned and managed by a French family and you can tell they take pride in their service and the quality of the food they serve. French Table reminds me of dining in an authentic French restaurant - what a great find on the island! We have already booked our next reservation!
My wife and I were spending a few nights in Anna Maria and had read the great reviews about French Table. We were warmly greeted at the door by the owners' daughter and were seated promptly. Marieke made a point to introduce herself and her husband, who was cooking in the kitchen, and she explained the menu and preparations.
My wife had the delicious mixed salad with goat cheese and shrimp flambee, both of which were excellent. Obvious care had been taken in the selection of the vegetables in the salad, as nothing was the least bit bland. The goat cheese drizzled with balsamic vinegar was extra delicious! The flamed shrimp and accompaniments were perfectly prepared and tasty as well.
I had the mussels gratinee and cassoulet, also both delicious. The basket of homemade bread included a dark bread with walnuts and was excellent as well. Preparation of all these dishes was very true to our recollections of our visits to the SW region of France.
Ambience was lively and open, with happy table chat easily being heard at surrounding tables. This was a great dinner choice!
Outstanding service, meal and environment. It is definitely great French country cuisine. We loved our meal and the quaint environment. The prices were excellent for the food and wine.
Super friendly. Great sunset out the front windows. Great food. Get a loaf to go!
Wonderful dinner, food was delicious and the owners absolutely fabulous. Thank you for a wonderful evening!>
Outstanding local French restaurant that earns support
Delicious food and great service!!!
Authentic French Food. A lovely restaurant across from the beach in Bradenton Beach. Operated by a married couple (he is the chef, she runs the front of the house) who were born and raised in France, it is a great experience. The chicken and mushroom with cream entree was lovely and they gladly substituted rice for the fries for me. The Casoulet was delicious with tender duck and juicy sausage. Do yourself a favor and order the dessert sampler. We’ll be back next time in town.
fantastic food very authentic , everything was perfect
Perfection! Love this restaurant. Great price and exceptional food.
Incredible food and menu. Service was perfect. Merci
Highly recommend. The best salmon and créeme brule anywhere!
Excellent French home cooking; less like going to a fancy restaurant, more like having a meal with friends.
What a great place. Amazing food / great family that owns and runs this quaint place. We would definitely go back to this place— we would be regulars if we lived here. Awesome !
Great place! Make room for this place on your visit. We’ll be back!
Wonderful find in Bradenton Beach. Super Provincial style French Bistro with perfectly prepared dishes - sauces were worth going for on their own. Onion soup, was best ever and home baked bread terrific.
Don’t be but off by narrow wine list; it’s balanced, good quality and reasonable.
Second time & just love this place! Such a quaint atmosphere, wonderful hands-on owners & true French comfort food! The French onion soup puts the American version to shame. Will be back ASAP!
Food and service were wonderful! Definitely a place to eat on Anna Maria Island!!
Great place.... Saturday is a good evening to go. Their slowest night.
This was the best food we had during our trip. Super authentic! The owners were very nice!
I have been diving by for years and never thought much about it until invited by friends and what a treat
It is a must eat!!
A neighborhood gem! Excellent for social distancing at this time, with every other table blocked off and our server wore a mask. The food was authentic, delicious, well portioned and well priced. We had the onion soup and goat cheese salad to start, duck breast and cassoulet entrees, and creme brulee to finish, not to mention a lovely Cotes du Rhône wine. Everything is made fresh in house including the amazing bread. A lovely family run enterprise that we will be sure to return to again!
In this age of coronavirus, we felt very safe. Tables were apart and staff was well-protected. The meals were fantastic! Have already recommended this place to others.
Adorable restaurant, great food, friendly service!
Always good, food & wine
Very friendly owner / staff
Intimate setting as there are only 4 tables (3 now during covid 19). Excellent service as the owner, wife and daughter are the only employees. Food was great!!!
Something different in a beach town. I had the cassoulet with duck leg. The duck was very tasty and tender. It is served with white beans and a nice bit of sausage. My wife had salmon and she was very pleased with it. Wine and beer and soft drinks were available. The service was very good.
Great family run restaurant. Food was excellent.
Fantastic setting, delicious food, and warm n friendly staff. Perfect for a date
We’re frequent local diners and were happy to be able to dine in again. The food is consistently very good and tasty. The owners make you feel like you’re dining in their home. Very welcoming 👍
Very nice family owned restaurant. Food and service was excellent. Authentic. Highly recommend
Great food, service and wonderfully homey atmosphere
Amazing food! Amazing service! Amazing family!! Love this place!!
We had an absolutely phenomenal meal at French Table. It is a charming place and quite different from other noisy loud spots in Bradenton Beach. The French Onion soup was perfect. Lighter, fresher than the norm. Broth was delicious, onions were sweet and perfectly cooked. Salad was also great. The garlic shrimp were wonderful. Exceedingly fresh, sweet and delicious. The mussels were fantastic. Plump and tastefully prepared. The pomme frittes were the best I have ever had. The Flan was a wonderful way to end the meal. Not too sweet as many can be.
Wen we return to Anna Marie Island we look forward to another wnderful meal at the Frenc Table.
The French Table is a hidden gem! What a charming place. The owners were so friendly and made us feel very welcome! We had a great conversation another the food and our daughters! I highly recommend the French Table!
We had a lovely dinner for my birthday at The French Table! The service was outstanding (my husband had an opportunity to practice French with the very gracious owner), the meal was simply delicious, the wine was excellent, and the ambience was very quaint. We felt transported to a romantic little restaurant in France for the evening and that was exactly what we were hoping for! Merci!
The food is the star of this family-run French restaurant. Authentic French cooking. The food is flavorful. The wine sauces are superb. Glad to see a family-run business offering something different and better than standard beach resort fare. Don't be scared off by the French food. The place isn't stuffy or pretentious. Quirky and quaint atmosphere with very good food.
What a treat. The food was delicious, service outstanding! We were a family gathering of six and wanted to enjoy food and conversation. The BEST! The background music was low, lighting perfect and spacing between tables allowed for each to feel as though a stand alone. Thank you to the owners and staff for a memorable evening!!!
