Cute, artsy French bistro in The Heights. Tabletops are all different, each with a painted scene on them. The Forestiere crepe was excellent; the baked Camembert big enough for four to share, washed down well with a glass of red.
Quaint little French bistro in the heights with sweet and savory crepes, several French staples like escargot and a wine list comprised of mostly French wines. The escargot were fantastic and the porc Normandie is highly recommended! The nightly dinner special is also such a great deal, an entree and two crepes for $16!
THE SPACE Situated in a nondescript strip center, this bistro has an interior that is an entirely different story, with a welcoming bar and a handful of colorful tables creating a dining area with a warm French bistro feel. Soft lighting, wood floors and scattered cushioned seats along with a long cushioned wall bench create a cozy atmosphere. Seating in the bistro is snug and it can get uncomfortably loud, particularly if there is live music. A small but pleasant outdoor front patio is ideal for lunch or brunch during good weather. Wheelchair accessible.
THE CROWD Runs the gamut, from couples out for a romantic meal and singles at the bar to groups and families (There is a children's menu available but rambunctious children would not be appropriate). Great date spot or for small groups. Dress is casual.
THE BAR The centerpiece is a nice selection of premium liqueurs and alcohols, The restaurant offers both specialty cocktails and wines by the glass or bottle. The small wine list features French wines of varying quality and price.
THE BILL Entrees from $19 to $26; specials as high as $34. Major credit cards accepted.
WHAT WE LIKED Baked camembert, French fries, mixed greens salad, New Zealand lamb ribs served with mashed potatoes and vegetables ($18) and Tornedos Rossini: beef with foie gras, fig chutney with vegetables and frites ($24).
IF YOU GO Lunch: Monday to Sunday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dinner: Monday to Sunday, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Reservations are recommended, especially for Friday and Saturday nights. Free private parking lot across the street from the restaurant. The Harels also run a custom bakery business on-site for weddings and special events.
RATINGS Overall barely O.K. Surprisingly expensive for bistro fare with slow but well-intentioned service and dishes of inconsistent quality. Has the potential to evolve but would not visit again anytime soon.. Only the test of time will tell if Salé Sucré will survive long enough to realize its full potential. I hope so.
I like supporting small business, specially when family owned, and this bistro deserves all 5 stars! the camembert cheese, the lamb and the chocolate crepe they were all superb. great atmosphere for a romantic casual dinner.
Best crepes in town! wine list is well priced and Cheff Phillippe and Son are always around making you feel at home. very cozy atmosphere.
