    This is one of the best French restaurants I have been to. Completely authentic. Food, service, and ambiance were fantastic. Prices were very reasonable. This is a must visit place in Breckenridge. Absolutely 5 stars.

    This is exactly what a small neighborhood French Bistro should be. A few tables, a bottle of great wine and excellent food in a family run restaurant. All our entrees were delicious and the appetizers, were so large that with a salad you could almost make that dinner. La Francaise is definitely on our “Let’s Go Back List” the next time we are in Breckenridge.

    We have had a place in Breckenridge for about eight years now and thought we knew every restaurant in town. We have a number of favorites but I thought we would try something new. I read the reviews and went purely based off of those. The food was outstanding. This is truly one of the best restaurants in town, and that is saying something considering the quality of a number of the restaurants. The small setting and cozy atmosphere are terrific. The family who also owns the bakery, (also ridiculously great breads and baked goods), is a joy to meet and offers outstanding service for a great dining experience. I am a fan of foi gras, and they offer several variants, all outstanding. I had the short ribs with foi gras on top and it melted in your mouth. Great new addition to the already great town.

    This is not our first time there. The restaurant is ran by a family. They really care about the place and it shows. It’s your typical French Bistro ambiance. Even though the restaurant is on the small side, but it’s not noisy at all and you can have a nice conversation. The food is amazing. We always have the bread basket , and it’s huge. The tartare is amazing , the onion soup as well. The desserts and coffee are a must as well. We are so delighted we have this restaurant in summit county

    We lived in Paris suburbs for a year... and fell in love with the food/cooking/taste. Having lived in Breckenridge 5 years full-time now, we're huge fans of the LaFrancoise bakery. When the bistro opened (same family ownership) we knew it would be great...and it was/is. Great menu, service, ambience (at least for BreckFrench :)) and food was amazing. Highly recommend.

    We ordered the charcuterie and cheese plate half board and it was plenty for four people to snack on. The drinks were very nicely made. And the entrées we enjoyed where the Beef Bourguignon, the duck breast Tartine, the Ravioles & St. Jacques with the scallops and the lobster pasta. All were just amazing would encourage people to dine there while in Breckenridge.

    Unfortunately the food was absolutely terrible. The risotto was over cooked and over sauced. The beef burgundy was fatty. The French onion soup had no flavor. And the ambience looking into the kitchen , which wasn’t all that clean or organized was also disappointing

    The food was absolutely wonderful! It ticked every box we could’ve asked for with French cuisine. I could go on about the presentation, timing, flavor. I even got goose bumps at one point. Unfortunately, the only negative I would say would be the cleanliness. Towards the end of the meal, we noticed black dirt, fuzz, dust chunks (something) in my husbands water glass. It hadn’t been there before. That’s when we looked up and noticed the thick layer of dust on the fans, air vents, and fire sprinkler system. We mentioned it to our waitress and she said she’ll tell the owner. When we got our check, nothing was discounted comped or anything. Which is fine, but unfortunate that the customer service was lacking in this part. We had not made a fuss about the thick dust in the water (and probably in our food unnoticed). We wanted to make sure that no one else had the same issue and notified a second person casually as we left. My husband even made a point to not make a scene and only gestured to the ceiling and fire sprinkler system to make sure the employee saw. That’s when our original waitress walked up and said it was on the list for the next day to be addressed. I hope they do address the amount of dust on everything because this truly is a wonderful restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Hopefully next time they do more for customers who might have an issue, especially those who don’t want to make a scene. I highly suggest this place, it’s a great little nook with wonderful food, even if their priority isn’t customer satisfaction.
