    We went there for the Summer Lunch Special and as usual it was excellent and a very good price. I had the Red Snapper Almondine and it could not have been better.

    Loved it but they changed their chocolate mousse and it was far inferior to the rich chocolate mousse they once had.

    A great place to relive the Parisian experience with traditional quality French dishes. I had Coq Au Vin, hubby had Duck and both were absolutely great on every level, presentation, quality, value and great service! It was a first and will definitely be returning for many more dinners to come!

    The dining room is very cramped, so different parties are uncomfortably close, with no privacy. The clientele seemed to be mostly geriatric regulars. The service was good, and the music was okay, and not too loud. The prices are high, but the food quality and amount were not commensurate. I had lamb chops, but there was only a tiny amount of lamb meat in my serving. I was definitely not satisfied by my entrée. There are better values and better food elsewhere. I won’t return.

    I dined with 3 friends at lunch. We all ordered the catch of the day, and all agreed our lunch was excellent Since the menu indicated vegetables were part of the order, we did expect more than one slice of carrot and one brocolli floret. But the fish itself was plentiful. It was a perfect serving size for ladies, maybe not enough for a man. We loved that we could easily hear one another.

    Bistro Le Cep was wonderful, as it has always been. We wanted to give them time to get settled with a new management, and they have passed through their time of mourning and emerged just was they were before. The Easter special menu was quite predictable, and quite wonderful! All the old favorites and the duck and lamb were perfect. We love Bistro, and will be back again and again.

    I've been going to this restaurant since it opened and always loved it, but last night was a major disappointment. The menu has been severely diminished and many favorites are gone. Service was curt and bordered on rude. We were celebrating our twin grandchildrens' 1st birthday in absentia and it was the same place we celebrated their birth, but, boy, have things gone downhill in a year. I regretfully cannot recommend this place any more.

    Came back after a long absence. Food quality has not suffered. Sea bass was delicious. No bouillabaisse though (pandemic casualty). Hopefully it comes back soon. Bing Cherry desert was good. The wait staff was friendly and attentive but the bus/water girl needs to paste a smile on her face, not bang dishes around and at least pretend she likes her job.

    Cozy upscale French cuisine in a friendly welcoming atmosphere. We enjoyed their Rodeo Days special Menu at dinner. The pate appetizer, salmon bisque, duck and quail duo, ribeye steak and creme brulee were all delicious. Our server Efrain and other support staff were all very pleasant. They even decorated our table and lit a candle for our son for his birthday celebration- nice special attention to details. We will definitely return for this fine dining.

    Initial service seemed rushed to order but we showed it down by only ordering the next thing after the first arrived. Food was pretty good and the restaurant was cozy, great for conversation. Duck was good, but the beef liver was really good - enjoyed that a lot . Creme brulee was ok, not the best.

    The food is delicious and worth the money. The staff are very friendly and helpful about menu items that you might not know a whole lot about. The atmosphere is rustic and charming, although in some isolated places I did notice some paint flaking off the walls. I suppose the one other thing I could say is that the booth chairs are not very comfortable, if there were some cushions it would really be a perfect experience.
