Easter. The food is always excellent as is the service. Lucky for us it is in our neighborhood!
It is wonderful to have the restaurant open again and in a charming outdoor setting. The food remains exceptionally good and the wait staff is efficient and accommodating. We always enjoy the brunch and have never been disappointed. The French Gourmet deserves and has earned the support from the community.
We went for breakfast on a Sunday morning and it was perfect! Great little outdoor section to eat, not too busy, friendly service and the food was amazing. We had our 3 year old with us and it was a comfortable spot to bring him that felt casual enough but with first class food. Also loved the beautiful French soundtrack they had playing. Definitely going back!
First time having Sunday brunch there and we will be back! The food was delicious and my husband now has found a new favorite French Toast! We hope that they will be opening up for more days during the week soon.
Delightful brunch destination. Steak and eggs breakfast and wine selections make for a wonderful Saturday afternoon treat.
Always very well prepared and flavorful food. Fish a tiny bit undercooked, but who wants it dry? Excellent coulis, well prepared vegtables and "Frites". Portions modest.
Small wine selection but adequate for most dishes. Dessert not what I would label as FG did so a little too sugary for me. Always a bit pricey but at least very satisfying. I would return but would study menu carefully.
Welcomed and seated promptly (outdoors due to COVID), the service was excellent. The charcuterie board was quite good with a lovely pate. My duck and bean stew (forget the french name, it was the special) was delicious. The desserts were unimpressive, with my creme brûlée the consistency of fondant. Overall the meal was pleasant, the food taste, and the service exemplary. Skip the desert. I can’t speak to the wine list (which was extensive) as we are not wine drinkers, and the ambience was ordinary, due to seating in the alley (again, due to covid).
The meat and cheese plate was good. Good wine prices!
Delicious food, outstanding service, and a phenomenal wine selection! What an experience! Todd was amazing and really made our night even more enjoyable! Will definitely be back ASAP!
Food-fabulous. Waitstaff-terrific. Cant wait to return!
Hidden gem and would absolutely come back for delicious food that is reasonably priced...
As always , the French Gourmet never disappoint’s me.
The French toast were superb ! The chocolate sauce adds the perfect taste to it all. Thank you French Gourmet.
heaven! cant wait to go back. from the food, to the awesome service, all of it was perfect.
the wait staff was amazing! Very attentive. We had a reservation and it wasn't clear with the line down the sidewalk if we were to wait or go right in.
I made this reservation weeks in advance, knowing my family and I would be traveling to San Diego for Super Bowl weekend. I received at least 2 reminders that my reservation was upcoming. We WALKED 2 miles to get to the restaurant and, when we got there, were told that the restaurant is CLOSED. There was a walk-up and take-out, but no restaurant. Why didn't they report same to Open Table? Why didn't they contact me rather than accept my reservation and remind me twice in the 48 hours before my reservation that my reservation was upcoming? Nothing but a blithe apology and then on to the next take-out customer. Terrible customer service. It's unfortunate because the menu looked great, but we were not going to give our business to a restaurant who had our reservation on file for over a month, reminded us it was coming up, didn't tell anyone (Open Table or us) that the restaurant was closed, or even offer us a latte for our inconvenience. Unbelievable.
We enjoyed the food, French music and good service.
California Eggs Benedict are a must ! Best I’ve had in a while.
It was a total disappointment. We had reservations and had to wait over 15 to be told that they did not have available tables even though there was a table available, but instead they offered us a tiny table next to the bathrooms and were everyone passed by... we did not feel safe there, yet there was no apology and they were sitting other people without reservations in better seating... never going back.
We had a fantastic lunch at the French Gourmet. The combination cheese and charcuterie board was outstanding as were the steamed mussels. Our waiter was very attentive and the outdoor patio was nice. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience!
My Cesar salad consisted of 2 very large sections of Romaine lettuce with very little dressing. On a separate plate were several strips of very good chicken. The salad was not tossed - I ate the chicken alone as there was nothing to put on the Romaine. Highly disappointing and not at all up to the French Gourmet standard.
My guest ordered a chicken sandwich of some sort and ate only half of it.
I did have a small bowl of French Onion soup which was very good.
My bill was $51.00 which would have been okay if we had been able to eat what was served. We did not order drinks.
I'm sorry to write such a review. We won't return until we can order from the regular menu - your outdoor menu needs your consideration.
Mark, our server was great. Christian guided us on a wine pairing and we were very pleased with his Bordeaux selection. Given the current covid climate, the outdoor seating was very nice. We'll be attending the champagne tasting event next week.
We used to eat at the French gourmet about once a week and loved it. Went once since the menu change and - very disappointing! None of the same tried and true delicious favorites. It seems the restaurant tried to make its menu younger and trendier, but instead killed off everything that was good about the place. It’s also less French than before, IMO. I don’t think we’ll be returning unless the old menu comes back.
We had a wonderful time at the French Gourmet . The outdoor patio is delightful and food and service incredible. We enjoyed appetizers and drinks and then shared the steak entrée for dinner. Love that French Gourmet serves complimentary delicious bread.
The overall atmosphere created a lovely ambiance that only enhanced our meal.
We were welcomed with a glass of bubbly on our arrival, which was a nice touch as it was our anniversary. Service was fine. Nothing exception but certainly nothing to complain about. We shared a plate of hummus but could have done with a little more toasted bread to accompany it. My wife the duck as her main course, which she tells me was very good, and I had the steak au poivre, also very good and perfectly cooked to my desired done-ness. We shared a tiramisu for desert. Tasty but a little dry and heavy. We had a nice evening there and will go again. Have already recommended to friends.
It was our first visit to French Gourmet and it was great! It was a bit chilly outside, so we asked for in-door seating and we got a great booth - it almost seemed like the whole restaurant was open just for us. Spanish octopus was smoky and delicious and so were the scallops. Excellent service to boot. Highly recommend this neighborhood gem!
Everything was amazing for Sunday Funday brunch!! Bottomless mimosas? Yes please.
Also the French toast was awesome
Amazing food and service. Their new cocktail menu is great, and they have a happy hour with their cocktails on the menu every day even weekends 3-6 PM. My girlfriends and I will for sure be back. ALSO forgot to mention bottomless mimosas saturday and sundays.
We had another great meal at French Gourmet. The food is good, the prices are reasonable, the staff are friendly, and it's quiet enough to have a conversation. I always get the French onion soup, and it did not disappoint this time. The salmon Dijonnaise, Sete Scallops and ratatouilles were all carefully prepared and delicious. The only slight negative is the bagatelle may have been a touch on the stale side, but was still tasty. It's nice to have the bakery right there so you can take home a baguette for breakfast the next morning.
Great service, food and ambiance!
Valentine’s Day awesome food and lovely experience.
I love French Gourmet and I think it is a hidden gem. The food was really tasty and creative. I was happy to enjoy dinner there for first time. I’ve been many times for breakfast and lunch but now I will consider it as a good dinner option.
Wonderful food, service, detail, friendliness, overall, était délicieux.
Delicious food, excellent service, moderate price- loved the 3 course meal option. All good.
Great meal. Prix fixe is a super deal. Traditional escargot to start, followed by cassoulet and salmon Dijonnaise, and choice of decadent desserts. Given the food quality and service, very hard to beat. A favorite of ours for years.
Great food, efficient staff. Nice wine selection
The restaurant is back! We were there several months ago and were very disappointed. The service was very slow, the food was nothing memorable. I am very happy to say that they straightened out the difficulties and the food is now wonderful again. The escargot is tender and delicious. The salad was light and fresh. The salmon was perfectly cooked with the right amount of sauce. The short ribs were easy to cut with a fork and very tasty. The desserts were even better than before. The only things that are a bit disappointing is that my favorite duck was removed from the menu and the prix fixe dinner is now more expensive. We will go back now that they food is the great food that we have always loved about this restaurant.
Once again the French Gourmet lived up to my expectation of an outstanding dinner. We usually go for the fixed price dinner options, but this time decided to try other entrees. We were glad we did! The Filet Mignon and Sete Scallops were excellent choices!
Wonderful food combined with great wait staff....Save room for dessert, I could not decide and took an order home.
Excellent service and fantastic food we all had a wonderful time
