    Service was lacking. Food was just OK. The wine we requested they were out of. The second one….also not available and the one we finally got was not even on the list. Update your wine list! I’ve had better bistro dining.

    Escargot and oyster appetizers were excellent as were the bouillabaisse and mussels. Good wine choices (even the happy hour choices). A little pricey given that the appetizers and wine were discounted). I’ll return.

    Decent french cafe food, but nothing special. Brunch menu was kind of limited. It seemed understaffed and many tables in the dining room lacked ambiance and seemed like it was on the way to be a little run down.

    Service was great. And our waitperson was very friendly! French onion soup was good but a tad too salty. My steak au poivre was over peppered big time to Tabatha my mouth burned - a little l ss heavy handed with that and the salt in the soup and It would be perfect. My husband’s “tart” was more like a flatbread but it was tasty, as was his trout. Deserts were good. Truly the best dish of the evening was the lemon poppyseed soufflé - really delicious! For reference we did the prix fix menu as we were going to a performance after. So value wise it was great. Have had many good brunches here in the past - so I will come back.

    From the host’s friendly greeting to the delicious and well presented food and attentive service, we had a lovely experience at Ventaux! We took advantage of the Tuesday oyster special (and other happy hour deals), which we greatly enjoyed. Andrea, our server, made us feel well cared for. She brought my friend wine tastings when she had trouble deciding between two wines and helped us clean up a spill later on (I swear we hadn’t overimbibed!). Overall, we had a wonderful time, and we plan to come back!

    Our service was just terrible, and inexplicably so. We were there pre-theater, which we explained. We each ordered a drink, which were brought, and then we ordered a baguette, an appetizer each, and a salad each. We waited a moderately long time before any food came -- why didn't the bread come out at this time? Then, my companion's oysters came out. Still no bread (server said she'd have to go see if it was ready??) & still nothing for me. We asked where my steak tartare was - she seemed mystified. Then, the 2 salads came out with the bread. Finally my appetizer came. The baguette came on a big plate but we were not given bread & butter plates each. Also, we had no silverware on our table and had to point that out 2x when the oysters came out. Also, my companion had to ask for an oyster fork as that didn't come out either. Rather odd mistake for a place that supposedly specializes in oysters! Lastly, our bill was extremely messed up. By this point we were really stressed about making our show, but we asked to get this resolved: pointed out to them that my companion was charged twice, separately, for half the bill each, instead of half on each of our credit cards as we asked. The server, again, had no concept, & had to call the manager over who insisted that wasn't the case! At which point we gave up because we had to go. Just bad service from beginning to end. Won't be returning despite the food being tasty.

    Service was great and we really appreciated the reserve set up the host placed for us. We had the Baked Brie, Steak Frites, and the Salmon. Everything was great, though the salmon might have been undercooked, it made me ill almost immediately after leaving. That was the only upset of our night

    Food is average. We didn’t have a waiter. Bartender helped us but had to flag someone down anytime we needed anything. Frustrating. Food is average. Not a good experience today.
