Substance over Style – This little modern french bistro/bakery is a wonderful secret gem in Culver City. Located in the Buttercup Warehouse, it filled up for Sunday brunch with a high turnover where we were lucky to get a table. The lunch menu is more limited than the dinner menu, but if offered fabulous moules frites ($9 mussles and a side of french fries ($1.50)) in a tasty white wine cream sauce and also tender coq au vin for around $10. You can get a table or sit at the busy counter, either way, the food is delicious and cheap at the same time. Well worth a visit!
(came here a few months after this visit: fries were soggy, croque monsieur really heavy)...hit or miss.
Excellent little French place – I've been here a number of times for lunch. It's within walking distance from where I've worked so it's very convinient. Their salad with prawns has been a favorite, though their pasta dishes aren't the best. The lamb is excellent here. A bit steep for lunch, it's actually quite cozy for dinner. A great local choice if you're in the area.
Best. Soup. Ever. – The french onion soup they have there is just as good as the soup I had in the shadow of the Eiffel tower. The bread was the perfect consistancy, warm in the middl.e I cant rave enough... it worth parking the car.
Food so good – Great overall experience, the food was sooooo good! We started with the calamari, and for entrees we had the half roasted chicken and the chicken crepes. Everything was very tasty and the service was decent. I wish we saved enough room for dessert because they were gorgeous and mouthwatering! Next time we will go and start our meal with dessert :) It is a great place to go for a great meal and it's not too expensive. Highly recommend.
Casual bistro fare in the heart of Culver City. – The Scene
This renovated warehouse possesses all the casual friendliness of an authentic Parisian bistro, complete with friendly waiters with heavy French accents. Sky-high ceilings, large picture windows and hardwood floors warm up the restaurant's capacious space.
The French cafe's menu is a throwback to classic bistro fare. Since portions are generous, enjoy a hearty meal with a bottle of French wine from the restaurant's eclectic list. Escargots arrive hot and buttery, loaded with lemon and parsley. Traditionalists will enjoy the steak au poivre vert, glazed in peppery cream sauce, and the tender veal shank, dressed in a tangy mustard seed sauce. Lighter eaters should opt for one of the menu's 14 salads, while vegetarians will find themselves limited to a plate of fresh fruit or the crepes Florentine. Desserts are exceptional, especially the individually sized mousse-cakes that are round and colorful like miniature hatboxes.
A++ for Food and Service – My husband and I have been here many times for brunch on the weekends. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. The waitstaff is always very attentive and friendly, and the service prompt. They have delicous desserts and coffee (they have a great Cafe Mocha). My only complaint is that the tables are a little close together and it can get noisy, but you can always sit on the patio if you're looking for a little peace and quiet.
Delicious french cuisine at a reasonable price! – This place has a fabulous menu, great wine list and incredible desserts. It is the best place to splurge and have a decadent dinner without going broke. Try the filet mignon.
once bitten, twice shy – the first time we went to la dijonaise, we were floored. the quality of food was way above what we expected for the prices. the decor is that of a loft - high ceilings, large industrial windows - but that works against it too, as voices do carry and tables are close.
it's a great date-place when you don't want to be obvious about the fact you're on a date. in essence, it's not a captial D-date place. a little d. but in a good low-key way.
anyhow, the second time we went here - we wondered if maybe our judgment was clouded due to the excellent wine by-the-bottle prices. our calimari was rubbery and not crispy, almost inedible, and cold. the crabcake was crispy, with a medley of complimentary flavors, but the sauce was ice-cold and the underlying julienned vegetables were crisp, but also cold.
i wonder if we experienced the true character of the restaurant the first -or- the second time that we went... in both instances, our server was charming and affable, and our seating choice, despite the fact that we didn't have reservations, was excellent...
since the first time was love at first bite, and the second time was definitely a disappointment, we may try a tie-breaker... but at $70 for 2 appetizers, a salad and a bottle of wine, it may have to wait a few months.
Beautiful store, great location, good food! – I have been here a dozen times and overall I love this place. It is located in the old Helms Bakery building next to the Jazz Bakery in Culver City. The store inside is beautiful. The ambience is wonderful and it is a good date place. The food is reasonably priced and is tasty. Their desserts are amazing! It does get busy at peak times and if you dont make a reservation you may wait.
a great find! yummy and inexpensive – My bf and I go here all the time. The food is fresh and inexpensive and the desserts are awesome. The specials change frequently, but i have yet to order a dish that I didn't like. Fancy french desserts for around 4 dollars each! Can't beat that! It's pne of our favorite spots.
