Unacceptable! We were waiting for our orders for over one hour. The manager was not helpful, keep making feeble excuses. You should avoid this restaurant at all costs. As we were the only Asian table in the restaurant. I believe we were treated differently!

delicious food, service was attentive. The only minor issue is the portion size for beef bourguignon was tiny for the price they charged. Otherwise, we had a great dinner.

The Caesar was fine. The sauce for the mussels (classic) was tasty, but the mussels were a bit overdone. Service was prompt and accurate.

We were seated as soon as we got there. Service was excellent! I have severe allergies and they made sure that anything that I ordered would be safe for me, down to the dressing - truly appreciated the extra step :)

Pastis Provence moules were delicious. Side salad a bit limp, but dressing was great.

The manager and hostess made all the difference. The waiter had a lot of tables (worker rebellion is real) so he was struggling to keep up. The manager noticed we had been waiting a while came over took the full order and after that things picked up. Food was tasty, came out quickly.

Food was extremely average... had been here before and was disappointed that it has turned into an attempt at a lounge vibe? Weird purple lights and DJ at 11am. Hard pass.

We’ve been eating at MIP for years and ordered takeout through the pandemic. Food is always good. Our waitress the other night, Alicia(?) was fabulous. I do not say that lightly. She was really great!

It was a lovely restaurant. We sat outside and the heaters were on, so the temperature was very comfortable. our waitress, amazing, attentive (but not too much). The only thing I would say was I ordered the salmon and the piece was quite small for the cost ($21). But otherwise a fantastic evening.

Still one of the best little gems. I was excited to see the huge amount of additional seating from the pandemic as I hadn’t been back since then. The food was still excellent as usual and the bottomless mimosas are a great deal.

I made a reservation for Friday at 6:45pm for 5 people including myself, my elderly parents, my sister and my brother-in-law. My folks were the first to arrive. They were affected a table inside which is a quite small and noisy area. They asked for a table outdoors which they thought would be quieter. We enjoy having conversations while we dine. I arrived next and noticed that there was a speaker directly above our heads. We kindly asked our waiter to have the music turned down and he said he would see what he could do. The volume was lowered for about ten minutes and then someone raised it. We again asked someone to turn it down. Same thing… after ten minutes the volume was back up. Finally I went to the hostess stand and yelled. That did the trick until the dessert course. By that time, we figured we’re almost done and out of there. The good points: the food was great, the setting was very nice and the service was good. Now if they could only fix the noise problem.

Of five diners, four had mussels. They enjoyed but at least one had headache after, which may have been a sodium reaction. Great truffle fries with a scrumptious cheese on top. Shrimp tacos (crepes) were good. Desserts were good. Prices a little high, but I'm not a mussels fan. Maybe they are not easy to come by.
Would recommend to a mussels fan.

Maybe I am a snob, but I am used to dining in the San Francisco Bay area. Those areas master the culinary arts and they don’t start from the plate. They start from the moment you park your car to the person who greet you when you show up at the front desk. The lady greeting us was not enthusiastic and had no energy about her restaurant and was not happy to seat us. They were more concerned about selling their 30% off wines. The server would not talk about their beer because their beer was out of service but she was more than happy to nag us about bottles of wine that were on sale. The truffle fries came out and they tasted like plastic. Obviously they were sitting under a lamp because the Parmesan cheese was so hard and dry that it broke in half instead of being melted. They made an excuse about how that is just the way Parmesan cheese is when it’s heated. The beet salad was good but the goat cheese was not my preference. The bass was very dry almost like leather. The beer came in a wine glass and it was so warm. I don’t know what it is about LA restaurants but this place was not a four-star restaurant. They didn’t charge us for the warm beer, or the stale french fries. I still left a tip because I didn’t want them to think that I was just after a free meal. I do not recommend this place to anyone unless they were opting to go to McDonald’s. Can’t wait to go back to the bay area and eat at a true 5 star restaurant.

Food was luke warm. Presentation was under average. Relatively small portion looked lost on a large plate. Duck tasted good. No hint of saffran in the saffran bouillabaisse. Just yellow curry. Service was great. Drinks were good. Prices were okay. Would come back, but prob just for drinks and appetizers.

They service was PHENOMENAL, and made our first outing since the pandemic hit an awesome experience. I am wheel chair bound and the restaurant took the time to call me prior to my visit, allowed me to get to the restaurant early, and made sure I was seated comfortably. Thank you so much!!!

The food is good and ambiance inside is quaint but the makeshift outdoor seating is awkward as traffic zooms by and shakes the canopy causing a bit of uneasiness in your dining experience.

I had the soupe à l’oignon, bœuf bourguignon and profiteroles! The soupe à l’oignon was perfect, exactly the same delicious soupe à l’oignon I used to eat when I was living in Paris. The boeuf bourguignon reminded the one my mother used to make during those family winter weekend meals. The profiteroles were good. The cuisine really is what you would have in a French bistrot and is a great place to go to when you want this experience.

Mussels are still very good, but they stopped doing all you can eat mussels (and server seemed very surprised that I didn't know about it). Prices are high and portions are not great - paid $15 for two tiny crab cakes. Outside dining right next to the cars racing down Culver Blvd.

Went there for Dine LA. The food was great and service was wonderful. The French Onion soup was the best I had in a very long time. They have a happy hour menu until 6 pm (weekdays only I think).
