We always come here when we are in florida for vacation. We come for dinner sometimes and for lunch/breakfast sometimes. We were sad to hear that as of Jan 1, 2015, dinner will no longer be served at this location- only breakfast/lunch! We wish that was not the case! The curry shrimp are absolutely amazing for dinner. We always get dessert crepes as well. Personally, I like to keep it simple. I love the butter and sugar crepes. My mom likes the red fruits with ice cream. You really can't go wrong with the dessert crepes.

We also came another time as well this week (didn't reserve through open table) and had breakfast. My mom got the sweet and sour crepes and I got the other breakfast crepe option. Very delicious.

I definitely recommend this restaurant, but am sad that it will no longer be open for dinner!!!

Great service for our group of eleven. Delicious food and quiet nice ambience, perfect for conversation and enjoying family. We liked the french radio and the waiter was very good, attentive, but not intrusive. Escargots were a highlight as well as the quiche lorraine and chicken normande. We will return!

Good selection of French entrees. Food was prepared just right and tasted great. Excellent service. Not very busy when we visited on a Friday night.

I had been here once in the past for lunch - great crepes and sandwiches - so was looking forward to returning for dinner. The minute we walked in, I knew it was a mistake - the place smelled FUNKY. I mean like an old sock, not like yummy French food. The waitress was very pleasant and attentive, but everything seemed a bit dirty - even the wine glasses were filmy. The baguette was fresh, but the butter tasted like some fake greasy spread. The beef bourguinon was tasty enough, but not the heavily flour-laden sauce. The sides were scalloped potatoes - again too greasy - and a flan/quiche that would have worked on its own, but not as a vegetable side dish. In sum, a heavy, unbalanced, grade B- to C+ meal.

This restaurant never fails to deliver a fine meal. I only hesitate to expose it to the world. I make the most of it "off season'"

Visiting our home on Longboat off-season and decided to give the Creperie a try. Went on a quiet July Saturday evening and were promptly greeted and seated. Both of us had the chicken dish served in a crock which was very tasty. I started with mussels equally good. Had profiterole crepe dessert which was announced as very large and indeed it was! Large and mighty good. Service was friendly and professional. Look forward to our return visit.

We have come to your restaurant for 10 years. We brought some friends with us who just bought a condo and they loved your place and thought the food was delicious. So I know they will be back!!
