A fabulous restaurant for diners who are conscientious about their food. The restaurant caters to paleo, keto, allergies, etc. The French cuisine was delicious. We enjoyed the stuffed mushrooms, escargot, burger, duck and rabbit stew. The children’s menu is the best we’ve seen. My son loved the salmon and veggies.

Don’t be intimidated by this restaurant. The staff was so welcoming and taught us so much.

The restaurant is in a quiet office lot and is smaller than we thought. We came in at 5:30pm and the staff were busy inside the kitchen and we had to wait a bit to get seated. The drinks came out pretty fast. The appetizers and entrees were very tasty and worth the wait. We tried the rabbit dish, the steak dish, the sea bass dish and they were just awesome. The desserts, creme brulee, upside down pinaple cake and caramel. were just to die for. In all, it was a very good dinner for us.

Went to Sapiens Paleo Kitchen for the first time for my wife's birthday. She is Celiac and was excited to find a place that was 100% gluten free. The menu is great with a dish that will suit any taste. We both decided on the rabbit. It was delicious but just a bit salty for my wife's taste. We took our own wine as they do not sell alcohol. The service was great. The waiter did an excellent job explaining the restaurant's dedication to it's menu. We will be back for sure!

We didn’t realize when we booked the table, that it was a fixed price menu for Valentines s Day. We were a bit reluctant but we decided to stay. Boy we made a good decision! Unlike other restaurants on special occasions, Sapiens’ cuisine was sublime! Nothing was freshly made and yummy.
Thank you for a special evening and we will of course be back

Sapiens serves interesting and tasty French inspired dishes that are delicious. Their vichyssoise is one of the best soups I’ve had in years!

As an added bonus, the restaurant is totally safe for Ciliacs, making Sapiens a favorite restaurant for my Celiac wife.

The service is a little weird. They mean well but could use some training to raise the caliber of serving to match the high level of the cuisine.

As Arnold says, I’ll be back!

This was Valentines Day with a special 3-course menu. I selected the Seabass and wife chose the NY Steak. Atmosphere was very nice with French background music playing. Service was attentive and appreciated. Wife’s steak was humongous! My slice of Seabass could have been larger as I was still hungry after finishing my plate, so I guess serving size depends on what you order. (Wife shared her steak) we were rather disappointed that our dishes were luke-warm when delivered. Our fault for not pointing it out, but...but we were hungry. The fixed menu starter soup and dessert were quite appetizing.
Concluding, nice little bistro restaurant; looked at regular menu which had some nice selections. Try if you are adventurous for French cuisine.

Our waiter was very inexperienced--he didn't know what some of our food was or how it was prepared (quote: "I have no idea" with no offer to find out). He poured water with the pitcher resting on the glass's lip. He didn't return to check on us after serving and when we flagged him down from another table for salt, he brought a sticky grinder--which another waiter then needed for another table (they only have one shaker?) We had the overpriced prix fixe Valentine's dinner with tough and 1/3 gristle steak and overcooked and tough asparagus. The vichyssoise was delicious.

The food and service were outstanding. Our waiter Joseph was very personable, attentive, and enthusiastic. It was such a lovely surprise to find a Paleo French Restaurant! The onion soup and terrine were excellent and the 24 oz steak was amazing! We appreciated being able to bring our own wine and the corkage fee was reasonable. The addition of white table cloths would be a lovely addition to an already amazing restaurant!

The food and wait staff were excellent. What shocked me were the separate charges for refills of regular ice tea. I was asked if I wanted more tea and I answered yes so my glass was refilled before I finished it. 9$ for 3 small glasses of tea full of ice was ridiculous

The food was absolutely amazing! We had the bruschetta as an appetizer, and it was fresh and unique with beets. I had the meatloaf which was flavorful and a great texture - I hate a "mushy" meatloaf. It was juicy and I could taste quality of the meat used. It came with wonderful veggie side and potato au gratin. My son had the rabbit and it was delicious. There was enough for him to bring left overs home. It came is a wonderful Dijon mustard sauce that was really balanced and flavorful. We ordered the side of brussel sprouts with carmelized onions - really different from what I have tasted - super fresh and light tasting. We also had the plantains on the side which were nicely prepared and came with a really delicious dipping sauce that has a little kick to it. We couldn't pass on desert and had the chocolate creme brulee and apple crisp - delicious! The brulee was incredibly creamy, rich and smooth but not overly sweet. The apple crisp was right amount of tart and sweet - perfect for fall! The ambiance is warm and inviting and feels a little European. It's also BYOB so don't forget your wine. We made reservations for a Saturday night which is recommended because it was full. The highlight of the evening was a visit from Chef Aurore, who checked on us along with with several other guests.
