Contemporary French
Vincenzo Betulia, the award-winning and nationally recognized Chef-Partner of Naples' acclaimed restaurants Osteria Tulia and Bar Tulia, opened “The French,” Naples' first quintessential French brasserie in January 2017. Trained in traditional French cuisine and having gained a transformative affinity and appreciation for French cuisine while working with renowned Chef Paul Bartolotta at the James Beard Award-winning restaurant, Lake Park Bistro in Wisconsin, Chef Vincenzo has long sought the opportunity to display his French cooking techniques at what he now describes to be the “perfect” location. Paying homage to authentic Parisian brasseries at the turn of the 19th Century, The French transports guests to a sophisticated yet bustling atmosphere and features a brasserie rustique menu inspired by classic country and coastal French dishes.

    My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at The French. It was a fabulous and memorable experience! Everything was perfect -- nice ambiance, attentive and knowledgeable waiter, great drinks, creative menu -- delicious food from starters to dessert! We can't say enough in praise of a restaurant that values its patrons and delivers such a fantastic experience.

    This is our third visit to the French this spring, and each time the food has been more disappointing. While the seating outside is the best on 5th Ave., the cuisine has begun to suffer for whatever reason. Each of the dishes we had were poorly plated, and their "Sunday special" of boulllabasee came in a dish that was the size of a cereal bowl, and was probably the poorest example of this dish that I have ever had. It really should not have been served. We have always enjoyed the outdoor seating, but not again.

    I was quite disappointed with the food. Everything was overly drenched in oil and butter. I ordered the salmon for lunch with couscous the salmon was raw in the middle and the couscous was gummy.I sent it back, they recooked the fish to medium , which wad fine and substituted the couscous with green beans which was drenched in butter and oil. Will not be going back.

    We had several items that apparently are leaving the menu. Please bring them back when seasonally appropriate! Duck with cherries - best duck I’ve ever had. Squash blossoms with cheese...so great. Pear blue cheese salad and duck/lamb cassoulet we’re both wonderful. The food here is always great and the rosé selection is very good.

    Excellent!! A wonderful addition to 5th ave in naples. The service, food and atmosphere was perfect. i could have stayed all night and just watch the peolpe go by as we were seated outside. My husband and I shared the zucchini blossoms which were delish. I got the trout and my husband got the chicken. both were amazing. Too full for dessert after two great cocktails and two great meals. highly reccomend!!!

    Great food, service and ambiance! Wonderful evening. I had the Burrata and Melon appetizer and my wife the Betteraves (beet salad with apples and feta) and both were outstanding. The poulet roti was amazing flavorful and the steak frites was perfect with the accompanying bernaise sauce with perfectly cooked and a generous portions of fries.

    I dine here often - love it - 5 stars BUT: the liquer supply is limited as the only order 1 bottle of the good stuff like Basil Hayden, Reyko vodka, and they don't even carry Grey Goose vodka. It appears that one liquor distributor controls their purchases, much to the customers disadvantage. OTHERWISE THE FRENCH IS AT THE TOP OF MY FAVORITES - TRY IT

    The meals, waiter, and service were excellent. We have had this waiter before and he always explains everything about the menu and specials. The waiter was patient and unobtrusive during our birthday celebration for a close friend. The food has always been excellent, but a good waiter can complete the experience.
