The French Gourmet

Our restaurant serves California-influenced French cuisine in a quaint countryside environment. We are a long-time favorite of locals who appreciate the value of the menu and our extensive wine list. After three decades of serving our clients, it is as much an honor and a privilege, as it is a reassurance to know, that while culinary trends come and go, appreciation and dedication to quality endure.

Breakfast and Lunch served daily; Dinner Tuesday-Sunday.

"Buttery, garlicky escargot, flavorful French onion soup, perfectly tender duck confit, and perfectly cooked filet mignon. With an exquisite pastry to top it all off. And the owner and waiter are so handsome and charming."

"This is the type of restaurant that Silicon Valley needs. Little French Bistro vibe, with authentic French waiter who provided the best service and charisma, oh so reasonably priced...and of course delish. Definitely coming back when I visit San Diego."

"We had a lovely time at this gem of a place. It had been a few years since we visited, and we were reminded how good the food was! In fact even though we were both stuffed after lunch, we couldn't help ourselves from buying a cake on the way out, to share at dinner with my extended family"

"This was the last of three french restaurants I ate at during restaurant week. The menu was 20 dollars which was the least expensive of them all and you definitely got your moneys worth and more. The food and the service were exceptional. A must visit!"

"My wife and I were looking for a quiet, romantic place for restaurant week , and one that served rack of lamb. We had heard of The French Gourmet and wanted to try it, but could not get reservations on Friday night, so settled for Saturday at 5:45 PM. We got to PB/La Jolla a half an hour earlier so we could watch the sunset from a little park nearby. It was cold and beautiful and then a short couple of minutes drive back to the restaurant, where we were amazed by the variety of yummy pastries on display in the bakery. Then we were warmly greeted and shown to our table in a quaint room with charming pictures and murals. Loved our food and the price was very reasonable. We had the escargot and French onion soup for course 1, both got the lamb chops, and a Napoléon and Crème Brûlée for desert. All wonderful with great, attentive, and friendly service."

"We always get great food for a great price at The French Gourmet, and a recent lunch was no exception. Outstanding French onion soup (with the crouton and cheese just complimenting it instead of overwhelming it) and a melt-in-your-mouth seafood crepe. Add a glass of good wine and it's as good as it gets."

"We have been to the French Gourmet around 10 times now, and we have never been disappointed.
The service is excellent. There's no hesitation about opening a wine bottle for a little taste before you decide, even if you only want a glass or two, and the knowledge about wine is well above average.
The waiters are observant and know when to approach and when not to. Even at the busiest of times, during Restaurant Week, we were well taken care of.
The food is great, from the pâté sampler to the rack of lamb (my favorites)."

"The service always outstanding, they treat you like friends and family, very welcoming. The food was delicious! We had French onion soup and mussels for appetizer. I love their onion soup, it has a toast on top and baked with cheese. Yummy! For entrée, we had short rib, iron steak, duck Confit, and pork. All food were cooked perfection, especially the pork with green apple, it has a great balance. For dessert, the napoleon was crunchy at the outside, creamy in the inside. The Nutella crepe was creamy and warm. It was outstanding!!!"

"I met with two friends that it had been a long wait to meet. We were busy chatting and the food was wonderful. I had the onion soup and the steak pomme fritte. I am not a great steak eater but this was so flavorful and the vegetables were just right..not crunch and not mush.
They had the oriental chicken salad and liked it very much. It was a great find.Mag

"Had a great three course meal. The quality of food and attentive service was up to the usual standards of French Gourmet. The fact that it was Restaurant Week in San Diego, it made the price especially attractive. A lot of restaurants skimp when they offer deals. French Gourmet does not."

"Went during Restaurant Week for my anniversary. Lovely ambience, quick service. Our server was friendly and funny, gave recommendations when asked, and was very pleasant overall. Our food was delicious and came out at the perfect intervals. The Syrah paired well with both my duck and my partner's steak. The creme brulee was a tad overdone, but that was the only tiny criticism I could find. I love this place!"
