Love the ambiance/food and wait staff. I highly recommend!
Super cute little place, lots of color and adorable ambiance. Slow service. Slooowwwe service, and you have to ask for everything (sugar, salt, pepper, ketchup) one by one. Food was very good but not amazing.
Ultimately it was a nice afternoon and good spot for meeting in the middle in LA
Cute place. Limited menu for lunch but good for casual business catch up or friends.
Beautiful lobby of the Pali hotel with a cute courtyard. The brunch menu is a bit small but they have great options to choose from and the drinks are great.
Simonette is a gem. Fantastic food, fantastic service and great cocktails! The ambiance was so warm and welcoming -- there were Christmas lights in the tree and you were inside but the room was open to the outside. ...The menu was just the right size offering delicious, well-prepared dishes for everyone in our 6-person party.
Cannot recommend highly enough!
Food was delicious, drinks (Japanese whiskey with mint) divine, ambiance like sitting in a park at twilight! Definitely returning!
Great spot to enjoy the day with friends. Food and service was great
Met a friend for brunch on Sunday we had a lovely table in the courtyard. It was very pretty, comfortable and we had a lovely brunch. Service was excellent and the food delicious, we both had eggs and everything was perfect. We lingered because it was such a nice setting and we plan to come back.
Cute dining area in a small boutique hotel. Food was good but not great. Cocktails were great. The outside seating and atmosphere was very cute. Service was good except they wanted to push us out at the end although no one was waiting for a table. Overall a good experience but not a great one.
It is a small place so I recommend for a 4 or 6 person outing, nothing more.
Love this space! A lovely retreat in the city. Great food and ambiance.
Dinner was awesome, delicious food and amazing atmosphere!
I found that it was too expensive for the meat quality. A disappointment.
The ambience was amazing. This restaurant was well put together from the beautiful mural on the outside of the building to the interior decor of the restaurant. The food was amazing we received amazing service from the owner it seemed himself. I going to come back to trying their crème brûlée’. That was the only thing unavailable that would have made this the best French brunch spot experience.
beautiful cafe. service was good. food took awhile and everything was a bit pricey.
Wonderful ambience and good food. Service is friendly but could be more thoughtful. We had to ask for silverware, for more tea and water and the menu at 11:30 am was depleted!
Good service, great meal. Had umbrellas for the sprinkles, but couldn’t turn on heaters because we used the umbrellas. Would definitely eat breakfast there again...potatoes are out of this world!
Delightful restaurant. Small menu but excellent food. Ambiance and service were outstanding.
Drinks and ambiance was great. The food was okay. Ordered beef tartare, clams, burger, escargot and the branzino. Good place to have drinks or on a date.
Lovely French bistro with curated menu and cocktails.
The food was good but we had to wait too long for service.
We love Simonette and are so glad they are open again. This has been our date night spot since they opened and it's as wonderful now as it was orginally. We just miss their glorious Paillard!
The food and drinks were incredible, GREAT service, lovely ambience. The perfect birthday dinner for my husband. We'll be back soon!
I love the patio and the beautiful colorful bar, you feel transported to a Parisian courtyard not to mention the mussels were fresh and exquisite. We will be back soon.
The Simonette service and ambiance are top notch! We absolutely love going there and will time and time again. The buckwheat crepe is awesome!
Nice spot with good ambience and everyone is following COVID protocols! Great ambiance.
It was terrible. Took over 20 minutes to place our order with the waiter. They made many mistakes with our food order, which was quite underwhelming. Plus there was gross residue on the glass of our drink, and there was a fly in our drink as well.
They did give us a break on our bill, but we will not be going back.
Great setting. Nice plants. Decent service.
Great for a quiet coffee
Went for Sunday Brunch
nice space , good location
fairly straightforward menu
good for any day lunch
Service was very slow and not attentive but everything else was great.
Truly interesting food and very fresh. Service a little amateur but they just reopened so understandable and it will improve
The restaurant was half empty and the service was not good. They seemed exasperated when we got in. They brought coffee but never the sugar and didn’t come over to check. Besides bringing the drinks 15 mins later, and then the food, the servers barely checked on us.
Service was great but the food was horrid. We got served bad oysters of all things. I only recommend this place.
I just did not love the vibe here! Wish they had more of an ambience....food and service were fine but pretty forgettable!
Service was extremely slow.
Burger was too salty
Fantastic across the board!
If you want a nice ambiance then come. Very limited menu though. More fore drinks and conversation
Good, interesting food that is, by and large, reasonably priced, but the choices on the menu are quite limited. Make sure before you go that there is something that appeals to you.
Cocktails are great, recommend the bar area for drinks. Food is good but not amazing for the price.
My wife wanted French cuisine for Valentines Day. This restaurant was well rated and most importantly- they had escargot. The service was outstanding at every step of the way and the food was excellent - both in taste and presentation. Only drawback - the music. It was way too loud and was completely mismatched with the clientele. Yo, DJ Simon, read the room and take it down 40 decibels - this is a nice French restaurant, not a club. Again, outstanding service - from the valet to our awesome server to the hotel manager (it’s on the bottom floor of a boutique hotel) who got us a bag for our left overs.
