    The standout for us at this restaurant was poor service we received. The waitress came over after 10 minutes to say she would be back. Another 10 minutes passed… No water given until we asked. There were 10 tables of people with 2 waitresses, one busboy, 1 girl manning the front reservation area and 2 other men- not sure what their role was. We quickly ordered since we didn’t know how long food was going to take. We ordered a salad, bread and a main entree. The food was good but nothing extraordinary. During the meal we weren’t asked for more water or how our meal was. Overall, I think they need better organization plus training to help improve their service. With so many restaurants out there, this one would be a repeat way down the road just to see if things improved. Unfortunately we simply didn’t feel welcome or cared for.

    Ate at a sidewalk table. A real French bistro vibe! Excellent food and great wine pairing. Had Bordeaux Esprit de Pavie 2016 which was fabulous with our beef entrees. Don’t miss this while in Coronado.

    After reading the reviews I was excited to explore this venue… Got the sea bass which is one of my absolute favorite entrées. Well, very little flavor, extremely small portion and preparation was not terribly appetizing. Served over squash that was no larger than an index finger. Believe there were three of these tiny things… Just disappointing and not at all what I was hoping for and particularly a shame for the price.

    We really like Little Frenchie. Dined al fresco last night. For starters we ordered some glasses of wine, cheeses and a baguette as appetizers. Cheeses and baguette were lovely. For mains we each ordered an entree though we were hoping for the “weekend special” duck confit for two. It was not available. The Niçoise salad was good but not spectacular. The sea bass was very nicely done. Overall a pleasant experience.

    Do NOT DRIVE. There is no parking me and 4 of my friends drive to meet here for Sat brunch. It took each of us about 25-30 min each to try and find parking. The food was actually really good though and the ice coffee! The service wasn't the greatest though, pretty slow.

    This was for a birthday celebration. Our experience was fairly average. We ordered a cheese board with four cheeses and only received three. The cheese pieces were tiny to where it was hard to cut small enough pieces for four of us to get a taste. We did receive the fourth piece when we asked for it. The quiche was tasty, the hamburger delicious but the French dip was very average. We found our meal in all to be average and very pricy for what we received. Service was excellent!

    Our server Rachel absolutely ROCKS! My wife ordered Onion soup as an appetizer and the French Dip for an entree. She characterized both as "just okay." I chose the Smoked Salmon Benedict and requested the poached eggs be served very runny or soft. Imagine the chagrin of slicing into them only to observe yolks that looked almost thoroughly cooked. This was our first visit and we agreed that at a less busy time food preparation and ambiance metrics would increase. Bottom line, this establishment is at its best when the fewest patrons are overburdening its operations. When and if we return it shall be at as close to super off peak as possible.

    I was generous to rate the food 3 stars. The quiche was slightly warm, just a bit over room temp. It would have been tasty if if were really warm. My husband ordered his burger md - rare and it was very rare. He sent it back and the Server was accommodating. I rated a poor value because all of the restaurants in downtown Coronado are over priced. We have accepted that burgers along the coast are often $17. But $22!! The atmosphere was nice and clean. An acquaintance said the short ribs were very tasty. Since two of us were not impressed with our meals, I probably would not return. This is probably the first time my OpenTable review stated that I would NOT recommend this establishment .

    Quiche and Madame Croquette were delicious. The latter can be a little on the saltier side but the texture of the brioche and the flavor of the hollandaise sauce is perfect. Quiche is rich and packed with layers of spinach and bacon. Highly recommend trying either the cronut or cruffin - we got both which were great but they were pretty similar. The yogurt cherry filling of the cruffin was delish and the flakiness of the cronut was better than the cruffin.
