The food is all very well prepared. It's not cheap there, but everything is delicious. Lots of outdoor seating, and every table has a heater in case you need it. Service is excellent.

Third time here. It’s just lovely. Service is always great and the food has never disappointed. Always trying new things on the menu but we always get the escargot, whoever decided puff pastry should go with the delicious herby snails, deserves a medal. And the cassoulet is the perfect cozy home cooked meal you never knew you needed. Little Frenchie is a gem.

Service was lacking! Slow and not all that attentive. Order of beans came when we were all done eating, still put on the table, still charged. Food ok, but overpriced for a “bistro”

Absolutely delicious! I been here multiple times for brunch and wanted to try the dinner menu. The gnocchi was spot on. Melt in your mouth goodness. The beef short rib was pretty good too. It has always been spot on every time I go.

It was awesome! Our server was named Katie and she was the best. Helped us order and even had them split the orders so we could share. She also came to check on us at the right moments. Food was delicious! Will come back.

We were really looking forward to our night here for my husband’s birthday! That being said I know many places are understaffed, but paying high prices for subpar food and service doesn’t feel good. We waited almost 15 min to be greeted at the host stand, once we were it was pleasant but already I was concerned. When a waitress made it to our table she was very rushed to the point where she got our drink order wrong!! Then our entrees came before our appetizer and salad! I got the mussels that were unfortunately dry and cold and my husband got steak frites and his plate was mostly frites and a small cut of steak. Our escargot was brought without a spoon and the seasoning was bland. I think we had high hopes and really nothing was even in the good category …. Service, food, or experience.

Food was okay once it came, but we watched my eggs and smoked salmon sit under the heat lamp on the kitchen counter for several minutes while our other dish was still cooking. Of course, the eggs were cold when the server brought them to our table. On request, they warmed up the eggs, but kitchen should have synced the dishes to avoid the problem. Overall, dishes were a little overpriced for what you get.

We had to returnee the Onion Soup that is there specialty, the Escargot, second specialty, was also tasteless, over all I would not recommend this restaurant, there are many more better ones.
On the positive side they did not charge us for the Onion Soup !!

Delicious and unique meal (short rub hash and burger) served by excellent and responsive staff. We chose outdoor seating to enjoy the lovely California weather. Signing up for the newsletter gets you a free dessert, in our case a very pretty but watery creme brulee; did not add to the meal so don't feel bad if you forget to sign up prior to dining because you should try some other dessert instead.

The waitress was very friendly and the baguette was good. That's about it! I had the runny eggs with smoked salmon and they were flavorless. My wife had the Nicoise Salad and it was not good. She ate about half and took the rest home to throw away since she didn't want to insult the staff. The albacore that was on the salad was dry and tasteless, it would have been better with canned Bumble Bee tuna. In a nutshell, order a glass of wine and the baguette and forget everything else.

We walked 6 miles in Coronado and had reserved a table for lunch the night before. We wanted to try the Michelin rated restaurant and we loved it. Mussels and truffle fries and Salad Nisoise. Baguette on the side. Really delicious.
