Made reservation. Seated a few minutes early. Dinner was served very promptly. Had the stuffed sole which was delicious. A good variety of sides accompanied the meal. My spouse had his favorite shrimp fettuccine. Both dishes reasonably priced. The chocolate mousse for dessert is excellent and totally worth every calorie!

I just wanted to be sure to let you know you need ceiling fans outdoors to assist in keeping the flies away. The ceiling fans above the tables would eliminate so many flies sitting on my food or me. It was crazy watching g the swarm Of flies travel from one table full of food to another. Plus it would help create cool air to make customers comfortable. Would be great investment.

Love the food and the staff. Restaurant was a bit noisy, but it was also a very busy day being Mother's Day. They even gave us a lovely sprig of fresh lavender on the way out.

Their food is very different (waffles & crepes), but it was pretty good. Our waiter wasn't all that attentive, although other servers did stop by to see if we needed anything. We were celebrating a birthday, and they served the birthday girl a luscious chocolate mousse dessert that we all shared. I will go back, because I want to try the lobster crepes. We ate outside and there were a few flies that we had to fight off. Having some fans going might help that situation.

Everything at Si Bon is always very good. The only gripe I have is my mussels. They were tiny. Also the mustard cream sauce was not good. The mustard was barley noticeable. And it was over buttery oily. It helped when I asked for some Dijon and I doctored it. The pomme frites always nice.

Our waiter Ivan is excellent!

Always a great meal. Unfortunately we had a child next to us who screamed to get his parents attention and they seemed to think simply trying to reason with him would work rather than taking him away from the diners. Certainly not the restaurants fault.Si Bon continues to be at the top of my list for places to dine.

No matter the reason for visiting Si Bon you will enjoy your experience from start to finish. It’s a cute restaurant and very comfortable. You can sit inside or on their covered patio. Excellent service staff. Friendly hostess. The food is wonderful and creative. Prices are reasonable too. It is always busy for good reason. Philippe knows what he is doing!!

Excellent Belgian food with a flair. Lots of lobster items. One of our favorites is the Lobster Chopped Salad with lots of delicious lobster. Their steamed clams in a choice of 4 different broths is excellent. I particularly like the lemongrass broth. The lobster stuffed filet of sole is scrumptious as is the beef stroganoff. Go there. You won't be disappointed.

Food was neither as fresh nor as plentiful as it was several weeks ago. I ordered the papaya and chicken salad both visits. Also, it would be helpful if you tried to reduce the flies on the patio.

Lovely Easter Brunch. Service and food were both wonderful. Tables are very close together, and the noise level is loud, so not the place to go if you want a quiet meal or a conversation you don’t want to share with others. But if you want good food and friendly, fast service. This is your place.

It was a nice meal. The service was spotty at first but improved greatly as the evening went on. The mussels were fantastic as an appetizer. The sole was excellent, but the tartare has too many diverse seasonings mixed in and they competed too much to sense the base flavor (we probably would have been better served with the tenderloin itself). The wine was nice and the selection somewhat limited but overall well paired. We did not have dessert so cannot comment on that. The ambience is not great but it is situated in a strip mall parking lot so that is no surprise.
