Great food, intimate ambiance – Waouwwww!!!! I've just read the previous reviews and I'm really surprised... I had a really nice time in this place.
I dined there last saturday night with my fiance; we booked on opentable ; and we had the most romantic night ever.
There was an artist who was singing the old French classics, it was beautiful! Not too loud, just perfect.
We had the escargots- simply delicious- the fish special -the sauce was unbelievable- and the filet mignon - tender.
We shared a dessert crepe, which was huge and delicious, it reminded me of Paris.
I recommend this place, I will go back there.
No, No, No. – We arrived in time for our reservation and were seated promptly. Our waiter came and explained the special, which is what I wanted right off the bat. The downfall was that wasn't what my boyfriend wanted but since I really wanted it and the special was for two people he agreed. First course was Nicoise salad something fishy and bland and room temperature accompanied with artificial tasting citrusy oil. Terrible. Second was pasta. I know how to cook, I am a culinary school graduate so I know for a fact that pasta only congeals into a cold disgusting lump when it has been sitting out for awhile. This was exactly what we got. A congealed lump of flavored pasta coated in a low quality olive oil. Third was crepe It came huge and this excited us because it smelled good. First bite was pure fat. I think I actually took it right out of my mouth. By the time I got to my third bite I passed the rest to my boyfriend who was still hungry and very angry about the lousy food. The dining room is VERY noisy with thier band (not music but Noise).We were sitting in a secluded corner in the room and still had to lean over to hear each other. The bill was well over $80 and was the WORST waste of money (in a California restaurant, the other was for Bobby Flay's restaurant in NYC). We left feeling very cheated and very disappointed. I urge everyone to NOT believe the website of this place.
THE WORST FRENCH RESTAURANT EVER – I choose a French restaurant because it had to be good no? WRONG. None of the employes were smiling to us, the worst was the busboy, you can tell that he do not like the job there. Ok we are not senior because I thinks all the patrons were over 60s, but can we have some service at our table Please. The food was ok, I had a crepe with chicken a way too much cheese, I couldn t finsh it, the Tuna salad of my friend was good but the Mussels were too salty, we told to the funny busboy who never changed it and no one asked why our plates were almost full. Ok ready for the worst part, when I went to the bathroom at the end of my meal, I saw the chef pick up some FOOD FROM THE FLOOR and put it back into the pan, IT WAS DISGUSTING. If only a Health inspector was there he will close this place right away. I didn t say anything but I HIGHLY DO NOT RECOMMEND this place. Terrible experience.
Okay Bistro on Little Santa Monica in Beverly Hills – When we got here at 6 pm, we were the only ones here. The waiter was nice, and the open kitchen is hidden behind a counter. The atmosphere is decent, filled with rows of French Bistro tables and fake Mona Lisa paintings hanging everywhere. There is a small accordeon band that entertains and sells their CDs at the same time. The salad was good, big portion, but great dressing, the crepe was more like a calzone, a bit overstuffed with paperthin crepe surrounding it. Not bad. One of the more affordable restaurants in this ritzy area.
Great lunch, tasty and reasonnably priced – I work next door to their place and have lunch there up to 3 times a week, I love their salads, big enough for two, but that I eat all by myself ;) If you want to indulge yourself, try their French fries too (definitely the best in the neighborhood) and their Napoli panini, not French but SO good.
Service is good. They also deliver and are pretty fast.
I definitely recommend that place.
Is it a joke??? – We ordered some sandwiches fand salads from them, it tooks an hour delivery, then the food was really salty and the salad was a way too old. Half of the people in the company complained about the quality of the order. A review wrote that it s cute that the delivery man is french, ok and... I m not looking for a date but some good food for my company and it was absolutely not. I finally called them because my boss wanted his money back they took my number but never called me back. Do not do the same mistake like us and find a restaurant who wants to stay in this business.
Parfait! – I am a self-proclaimed Francophile and my friend told me she just HAD to take me here. It was a fantastic night! The ambience was great! Very quaint yet chic at the same time. We ordered some coffee and dessert, and it was simply perfect. The service was fantastic, we didn't feel rushed at all, and the food was terrific! We cannot wait to come back here another weekend!! :)
Best Lunch for the Money – I worked in Beverly Hills, and used to order from this place frequently. They were always polite, on-time, and pleasant. If you work in a certain radius around their restaurant, they would deliver the food. They always had the cutest, french delivery guys. That by itself, me being female, was a delight. But to top it off they have great lunch specials....enough food for two people for under $11.00. The food is absolutely delicious. I miss working in Beverly Hills, just for that reason.
Good food – The food here is great. The fries and tuna sandwiches are awesome. Cute, quaint place for lunch. The service is good and you really feel like you are in Paris.
As good for breakfast as for dinner – I have to disagree with "zerocalorie" cause I first tried Cafe Marly for dinner, and my husband and I loved it so much that we came back the day after (on Sunday) for brunch and we liked it just as much. The hostess greeted us warmly and welcomed us back, the scrambled eggs were perfect, and the fruits very fresh.
We live in the neighbourhood and we now dine there quite frequently, and still enjoy it a lot.
