    I am always pleasantly surprised at how a dining experience can be influenced by the restaurant owners participating in the day to day operation. I respect and admire them for their commitment to their business. This dinner was certainly no exception. We had a table near the cooking area and chatted with the owner/chef and his coworkers. On the serving side we were waited on by everyone including the wife of the chef and three others. The food was incredible. The service was incredible. I would go back at least two more times just to try the rest of the menu. We had bone marrow, onion soup, veal, ravioli and goat cheese with bread and salad. This is a special place and experience that should not be missed.

    This was probably one of the best meals our family has ever had. The frog legs, escargot, French onion soup, steak frites and homemade ravioli were all amazing. The service was top notch and the ambiance was perfect. It was fun to watch the chef work his magic in the kitchen too. A unique little bistro in a quaint Breckenridge town. This restaurant was built on love of food, passion for quality and perfection of service. This is a must not miss!

    The food was delicious and the service was great. But if you are a party of two, beware….This is a very small restaurant and my wife and I were celebrating our anniversary. The restaurant was fully booked for the night and we had a reservation which we had made a few weeks prior. There were few seating options for a party of two (most of the tables are designed for parties of four or more). We were seated at a small table that was crammed into the back hallway of the restaurant next to the bathroom door, the drink station, and the rear exit (which was opened several times by employees during our dinner—and it was snowing and the temperature was in the teens). Again, the food was excellent and had we been seated in the main area of the restaurant at a decent table instead of the poorly-located table at which we were seated, I would give a higher rating.

    My family and I visited La Francaise Bistrot for the first time, and it was simply phenomenal! The ambiance was quaint, sitting on polished wood benches with lamps at each table. Leland, our server, was outstanding. He gave excellent advice on the limited, but thorough menu, suggesting excellent wine pairings, menu items, and cocktails. The food was to die for! We started with the bread basket—beyond words. Three different breads with two different tapenades, butter, and hot jelly. For our entrees, we got the Beef Bourguignon, Tournedos Rossini, Filet in Brioche (their current special), and the Duck leg pot-au-feu. Followed by Crème Bulee and Pear with ice cream and hot fudge. Incredible! Thanks so much for the amazing team at La Francaise Bistro! It was a very memorable meal!

    Dinner last night was fantastic! First, every single fish that we ordered was exceptionally prepared, presented, and unique… loved every single one, to the point where we could not decide which one was our favorite! The staff was perfect, they were friendly, courteous and helped us choose dishes and service was exceptional. The chef, Yvan, was awesome. We had table 1 so we were next to the kitchen. He not only took the time to speak with us, but while he was working a full house was continually smiling! He loves what he does and he does it exceptionally well! Highly recommend this restaurant for many reasons!!!

    This place was such a treat. We booked far in advance for a party of four and at the last minute only three could attend. Thankfully we could still get a table. The food was spectacular. I am the fourth member of the group that couldn't make it; however, I was lucky enough to get a lovely Soupe À L'Oignon. The others that did go to the restaurant could not quit talking about the Frog Legs. For entrees they had Steak Frites, Boeuf Bourguignon, and Coq Au Vin. They loved every bite for dessert they had the Crepe and Crème Brûlée. From the moment they walked in the ambiance and family atmosphere were charming and you knew that you were at the right place at the right time. Hopefully we can go again very soon.

    New season menu is fantastic. Chevre salad is best we i have ever had. Lamb was prepared to perfection and scalloped potatoes mouth watering. Large piece of grouper over tapanade was cooked perfectly and delicious. Wine menu is limited but good selections are available at all price range. Service, as always, was personal and friendly. It is clear that thar this family run gem enjoys their work.

    This restaurant was superb all around. I had been looking for another great restaurant in Breckenridge and this one was fantastic. As soon as I walked in I knew it was going to be great. The food was amazing, the family/staff were very nice and helpful. The ambience was great. We ordered almost everything on the menu and all dishes were fantastic. Having lived in Europe for many years I truly appreciate a great French restaurant. The foie terrine and the French onion soup were particularly special. I highly recommend going to this restaurant.

    I am a local and love La Francaise! Food is always delicious and there are always excellent rotating specials. Of course dinner is fantastic, but it is also a good spot to grab a cheese board and a glass of wine. Good service is hard to come by in a small town, but Isabelle and Margot are amazing hostesses :)
