    Little Sparrow is the new crown jewel of west side dining. The experience was phenomenal, and the food was exceptional. An eclectic sense of charm and a warm, welcoming atmosphere sets this restaurant apart, demanding your return.

    Our first time experience was impressive. From the moment we parked until we left, the staff was phenomenal. I can’t emphasize enough how important customer service is to being a repeat customer. 10/10 Bar service, and our dining experience was wonderful. We all ordered the famous cheeseburger with frites, and everyone thought it was delicious. 10/10 The ambience was beautiful 10/10

    Service was extraordinary, welcoming, and friendly, as if we’d entered a Parisian neighborhood cafe we frequented on a regular basis. Food elegant and intensely delicious. Just finished up my leftovers today for lunch. Creative flair, without going overboard. And Linton Hopkins bread and butter from The Buttery, with “Little Sparrow” Edith Piaf singing in the background. Typically like trying new places but this is a definite “go back for more!”

    The menu and servers should be clearer that the steak frites on the menu is ground beef, not steak. The dish was fine but a bit pricey for a glorified hamburger. Not what we expected.

    Food was very good. However, lady at table next to us(3 feet away) had several coughing fits during our entire meal. And, man at table to our rear thought the entire restaurant needed to hear everything he has to say followed by even louder laughter. He thought he was the real life of the party, but made our meal much less enjoyable. Overall, restaurant was very loud

    This was our first visit to Little Sparrow. The menu was spectacular and the food was awesome. Our server was Christina S. and she was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable of the menu and probably could’ve been more knowledgeable of the bar selections. We had an issue with the wine chosen, and she owned up to the problem and corrected it on the spot which was very admirable. The manager, I think her name was Lindsey, was very supportive as well. All in all a great experience,

    What a gem of a restaurant! Everything was excellent with the exception of the pasta bolognese, which I believe you should take off the menu as it is just not on par with the rest of all the other great dishes that you offer!

    I've never written a negative review about a Ford Fry restaurant, so this is unusual for me. Little Sparrow is a good concept--traditional bistro/brasserie setting and menu, slightly updated. The meal started well, with outstanding baguette and butter, and descended from there. Steamed clams were overwhelmed by a spicy tomato sauce. Cod was not fresh and definitely past its prime--inedible. Poulet was okay, but drowned in a brown sauce which destroyed the mashed potatoes. My biggest complaint was the lack of wines by the glass. In a good French restaurant, I would expect at least a good white and red Burgundy, a good Bordeau and Rhone. The only chardonnay was from Oregon. The only reds by the glass were a mediocre Rhone and a worse Pays D'oc. At this level, how about a Coravin? The clientele will definitely pay for it, but we don't want to always have to order a bottle. The only redeeming feature was an enthusiastic staff, although the kitchen was slow, even when the restaurant was not busy. Maybe the kitchen is the problem, because it is hard to get a reservation, but there were many open tables on a Tuesday night.

    The Onion Soup, Filet Américain, La Vi En Rose, and Ice cream with fennel and olive oil we ordered was phenomenal. The Jasper Hill Harbison was a bit difficult to cut through to serve and eat, but still tasted good. Our server, Katie, had the best energy and made our dining experience such a positive and great night to remember that we are for sure coming back.

    Pulled up to the valet stand and the valet just stared at me - we were the only ones there. He didn’t move to open my door, much less my wife’s, but waited for me to get out the car and walk toward him. As soon as I did, he let fly the loudest, most obnoxious belch. So loud he laughed and said, “mmm, that was a good one….sorry!” That kind of set the tone for the rest of the evening. Our food was quite good but to say the service was lacking would be an understatement. It took thirty minutes to just to get a drink. The bartender was out of grapefruit juice, any decent gin, the EH Taylor bourbon I was offered, and Averna Amaro; plus they had no Sauvignon Blanc or Cabernet Sauvignon to offer by the glass. It was comical that they couldn’t fulfill our table’s drink order. Once our food finally came, our server forgot our sides. He offered a perfunctory apology and then disappeared again only showing back up after we flagged him down to give us our check. The food was delicious but the rest of the experience was sorely lacking. Maybe get better help at the valet stand…at least ask them not to belch at guests as they arrive.

    Beautiful restaurant. I had the Dover Sole. It was a whole fish deboned tabelside and served with capers and a brown butter sauce. Hubby has the pork belly. It was good but very rich. Daughter had the bolognese. Also good but rich. The French onion soup is amazing. The frites raclette were a good shareable side dish. But very heavy The service is impeccable.

    Upon arrival, we opted to sit at the bar. Service was great especially for Bar Service. She knew her stuff very well. Loved the tartare and sweetbreads. Dessert Ice Cream was great too. Wine by the glass list could be better in my opinion. Will definitely return!

    Must dine! Hands down THE best French onion soup out there, the beets & endive were simple yet flavorful and the ‘adult’ spin to a soft serve cone … yes please! I went with a group of friends who don’t particularly fancy French cuisine - little sparrow, you changed their mind!!! P.s. we all took the gnudi with truffle home as a next day meal. Even better.

    We were really looking forward to trying Little Sparrow because we loved the former restaurant in this location - JCT Kitchen. We were disappoited with Little Sparrow. Our server was wonderful, as was the ambiance of the new space. However, the food left much to be desired. Very few wines available by the glass. The glass I ordered was Breton "Trinch" Bourgueil. It was a 4-5 oz pour for for $15 that tasted "old/stale". I didn't realize until towards the bottom of the glass that there was a good bit of sediment in the bottom of my glass - end of a bottle perhaps?? Our order: - Beet & Endive salad as appetizer: somewhat tasty, beets tasted like they came from a can/jar; only a Tbsp of goat cheese. - Ricotta Gnudi - very tasty, but only 5 small pieces for $24 (listed as an entree!) - Dover Sole - delicious! we shared, but we should have ordered individual portions - Frites with Aoili - too thick and greasy - very disappointed - Chilled Artichokes - side dish that was bland, colorless and falvorless We won't be going back.
