Ambiance amazing, food and service mediocre. Preferred the pre-pandemic menu. I ordered mussels and maybe there were 10 in the tin bucket. Before it was much more generous. They renamed the menu French Tapas, so the portions are smaller and the price is the same, not a good value anymore.

So happy to go back to one of our favorite places. It was palpable how happy everyone was to be there-including the staff.

We enjoyed the food, the fun and the fellowship. The service was not quite up to par. But having dined there in the past, we will look forward to our return visit.

I ordered the ciopino and the fish inside was salmon. The shrimp inside was the size of miniature shrimp and the scallops the same. The muscles were not fresh. This is supposed to be a French restaurant yet they serve tacos. The fresh baked bread was foamy and made of cheap ingredients. The 8oz filet was not fresh. The French fries were good. The French onion soup was overcooked. For the price of the dinner I would not recommend this restaurant.

Food was great as always. So fun to have so many Mussels options. French Onion soup is always like being in Paris. Service was a bit slow and inattentive but it’s also like being in Paris. The women at the hostess stand went out of their way to help us get drinks and the attention of our server

The mussels provencale had broth with no flavor. Caesar salad was good. Beef bourginon was average.
Overall very average. Had their special oysters a few months back and they were delicious. Friday was disappointing.

One of our first outings after getting our second vaccine shot. We met out-of-town visitors, at outdoors and stayed there undisturbed for many hours. The only negative was that they had run out of eggs by 1:30 pm, but I am sure that they never expected that many customers. It was a beautiful Sunday. We will go back again, as this was our 4th visit in so many years.

What you'll experience at MIP depends on the day and hour. What Culver City has done to its downtown area shouldn't have happened; it's chaotic!

Came for brunch on Sunday - really great food and service. Was a great buzz inside but was pretty busy in there and full. They also had the heating on which made it too warm at the back inside - especially during covid, not too smart!
We have eaten outside on the patio and that was much better especially now their staffing levels are better to cope with all the extra tables

Honestly I usually love this place but today the service was so inexcusably bad :( bottomless brunch is a rip off because they only refill your glass once or twice. It’s usually a regular spot for me but now I’m truly not sure if I’ll be back for a while

First and last time here. Total waste of $100. Took 5 minutes before we were even greeted, then when our appetizers came, no one told us what was what on the charcuterie and cheese plate. Also the escargot was just slightly room temperature. Our waiter didn’t check on us at all while we were eating apps and only once during the actual meal. I had wanted a bit of pepper for my potatoes but only had a couple left by the time he came around to ask how everything was. My friend had the artichoke, which was dry. Now wanting to leave, we had to go inside to search for the waiter who was seemingly standing around doing nothing. Took the credit card, then didn’t present it for another 5minutes. For the cost of this meal, just the bare minimum of service would have been enough but the fact that the food wasn’t good and our waiter was non attentive, lowers the value even more. Will not be coming back.

The food was shockingly terrible. Lobster ravioli had no salt and all you could taste was super “fishy” lobster. Also extremely underwhelming charcuterie board

The hostess was so kind over the phone and when we arrived she greeted me by name. The food was very good, too. The atmosphere is casual and it’s a great place to have conversation over a steak or mussels and wine. We will be back again soon!

I used to really like this restaurant-- it had a classic french bistro menu. They recently completely changed their concept and menu, and now its small plates with everything from tacos to duck confit. I found the menu too large and confusing, and the food overpriced. My friend and I ordered caesar salad, crabcakes, and scallops w/ risotto. We liked the salad and crab cakes. The scallops were just two scallops each on a tablespoon saffron rice (I would not call it risotto). The plate also included an inedible charred lemon slice and a forkful of overdressed spinach leaves taking up most of the plate. It was hardly an appetizer portion for $18, and it was not very good. If this restaurant is going to do a menu that competes with Akasha and other more upscale restaurants in the area, they will have to improve their game. They used to have a solid classic french bistro menu, and I really hope they return to it.

We ordered all you can eat mussels but had to wait almost 1 hour for the first plate! Then the same for the second one finally we left! It should be called “All you can wait” The waitresses hardly come around the tables! Disappointed!

They advertise bottomless mimosas but didn't have them because of Easter. They were charging $14 for one mimosa, which seems pretty out of whack with their brunch menu which is priced $14-$18/plate.

Our waitress was cold and rude and didn't check on us until after the food was already served. We had to flag someone down to order drinks. Our food took about 45 minutes and was served cold, there was hard cheese on my croque madam. They offered to comp the returned food but still made us pay for the overpriced drinks which was $70 with tip out the door. Horrible experience.

The service was pretty lousy. They are nice but not attentive. Literally had to flag down the waitress to take the order. No real menus just on your phone which, to me, is rude. My mom is 90 and needed to look at a menu not a phone so had to read it to her. The food was acceptable but nothing special at all. I loved my Chablis. Wouldn't return.

A ladies brunch with my vaccinated friends was in order and MEET was the perfect spot! We had a variety of lunch and brunch dishes that were all delicious. My only mark off was for the potatoes that came with my yummy Lobster Crepe. They weren't crisp and needed salt, which is something I rarely say. My Bellini was lovely and while the passing traffic could be a bit startling, I really did enjoy the bustle and ambiance.

The restaurant was charming. The food was great. We sat inside and the music was very loud and we were unable to hear each other without speaking loudly. The manager advised that he turned the music as low as possible and disconnected one of the speakers. That did improve the experience.
