Service was incredible. They were short handed today and we arrived early. Instead of just saying they cannot seat us yet, the hostess gave us options of where to get coffee or a drink- solutions!! Amazing. Then said “See you at 2!”

One server was handling everyone. When he arrived, he was so sincere and thanked us for being patient and overall just super kind and wonderful.

Was my first time- my new favorite spot :) and food was incredible. Warm baguette and salads and glass of wine.

Food was good, but it was so loud my table couldn't talk to each other which kind of ruined the experience. We even asked to move tables, but it didn't make a difference.

Service was by far some of the worst I’ve ever had. Sat at the table and didn’t get greeted until 18 minutes later. When the waiter finally came he let us know that he was busy and after explaining to him that he could have just dropped my the table to say he was busy he said “well I’m still busy so do you want to order something or no?” Rudeeee. We ask for a manager who didn’t come over until 45 minutes later. The manager had never been a sever and you can tell. They were short staffed but they definitely could have told us that from the beginning. Hopefully she will take the constructive criticism provided. The good was bland and dry. The crème brûlée was meh. The ambiance was beautiful tho. So eh. I wouldn’t want to go back.

Overall the place is cozy and affordable. However, service not so amazing. Food takes a long time to come. They were understaffed which I understand covid and many ppl out sick. They changed our reservation from 4:30 to 5 because they need time to gather as they were understaffed and we were ok with it but with 2 little kids starving it ruined our evening. Kids salmon arrived completely raw in center and then took 20 minutes to remake??? The kids were losing it at this point. Food either came out too fast, too slow, cold, undercooked or flavorless. I would try 1 more time without kids to see if its actually good.

We had a lovely late lunch on Christmas Eve. The service and food were both exceptional. Jon was our server, and he was most attentive (without being overly so). I wish I knew the name of the hostess, but she was wonderful, too. :)

The food was amazing: Onion soup, duck confit tacos, Salmon Benedict, fries, baguette and butter, and the charred brussels sprouts, which are to die for. Yum, yu, yum. A lovely afternoon; can't wait to come back!

The food was excellent and the steak surprisingly delicious! It was the best steak matched only by Delmonico’s in New Orleans and we have eaten at very high end steak places.

It was a cold evening. The heat lamps were not working and no one was working on that. We never got our wine (which would have kept us warmer). No one offered anything for us. We ate quickly and left

Probably the worst service I have ever had. We were seated and it took 25-30 mins before someone talked to us. And our server didn’t even go up to us, the host was the one that noticed that we hadn’t been helped yet, and she was the one that helped us. Our server finally talked to us AFTER we got our food, which was about an hour after we had sat down. Food wasn’t bad for the price, but it’s very hard to enjoy their food when we were neglected so poorly. I saw reviews ahead of time for this place and noticed that the only complaint that was consistent was their poor service, and I definitely experienced that. Never coming back.

everything was great except the salad nicoise, which was an American style tuna salad instead of the traditional tuna, which I would have expected from a diner, not a French bistro. Half of the European wines we were hoping to order from the wine list were unavailable, so we ended up with an OK California wine, but again, NOT why we went to a French bistro.

Unfortunately, the quality has gone down. The lobster bisque mussels were incredibly salty, overcooked and I had 5 dead mussels. $3 for a small baguette? The escargot was also too salty. The saving grace was the beet salad and French onion soup. I will not be back.

My husband and I enjoyed our first meal at this restaurant. The hostess gave us a choice of table, our waiter was attentive and quick, the calamari appetizer and petit filet with fries were delicious, and their house red (languedoc) very drinkable. We sat outside on the inner terrace closest to the restaurant which was kept warm by heating lamps. The place was nearly to capacity but the service did not let up. We will come back.

We have eaten many times at Meet, but haven't been there in awhile since covid. There lunch menu had less choices and was more expensive. Many of the items I use to order were not on the menu. I realize all the restaurants had to raise their prices, but $80 for lunch, including one glass of wine was a little much.

I went for drinks on a date and was disappointed to learn they don’t have good cocktails. They don’t have any spirits so they try to make cocktails with sake. I wish they had put that on the menu since I would’ve gone elsewhere since we were only getting drinks.

Wonderful food. Everything was flavorful and food temperature was perfect. Seats a bit uncomfortable. Cold, no heater nearby. Friendly and responsive wait staff. Best food I’ve had in a long time. I mentioned my spouses birthday to the wait staff as well as in the reservation but nothing special was done. Bummer.
