"We were there for brunch and it was very quiet. The escargot was excellent and the pasta was very good but very rich. The smoked salmon brunch item however was quite disappointing. The salmon didn't taste that fresh."

"The shortribs were excellent, and the fries were very good. So was the chocolate passion fruit dessert. My husband thought couscous would have been a good addition to the lamb dish. We really appreciated the Tuesday no corkage fee policy. The waiter was friendly, considerate, and attentive if occasionally a little distracted about what we had ordered."

"The food was amazing. The duck confit main was a large portion and the beef short rib in black pepper cream sauce was the best thing I'd eaten in weeks, maybe months! The French onion soup was a sight and unexpectedly sweet instead of salty; go for the salad with housemade bacon and poached egg instead (unbelievably good). Deserts were tempting but we had to run...
Excellent for date night because the food is great and the ambience is lovely. Typical of French style, you will have lots of time to talk while you wait for your order! But when you run out of things to talk to your spouse about, perhaps you've been waiting too long? In the end it was worth it!"

"La Cigale takes me back to a number of bistros I frequent in France, particularly toward the south of France. Learning that I have some dietary restrictions, the staff cheerfully accommodated my requests, and directed me to appropriate selections, indicating how they could be modified. It worked! The wine selections are very reasonable. The canard confit included two legs, so we gladly took a box home. Their home-smoked bacon is superb, and the boeuf Bourguignon is my favourite."

"The beef bourguignon is to die for as are the frites that come with it. We also had salad between us and fresh bread with olive pate. This place could easily become addicting. We travelled all the way to West 4th from West Vancouver - we used to go to the La Ragalade but it is closed. This will be our new Go To restaurant. And, oh yes, the waiter who I believe is from France - great personality along with good service."

"Our server Alaine was the utmost consummate professional. This is how service should be at every restaurant. He was very busy but always attentive. When we ordered a bottle of Pinot Noir that was no longer available, he went out of his way to find other options at the same cost as our original selection. There was a duo perfoming which was a tad bit too loud but the entertainment was an added bonus. The food is on the expensive side but excellent. The escargot in a garlic, mushroom cream sauce was delicious as was my Branzino. My husband loved the French onion soup and enjoyed the beef bourguignon. The peach melba dessert was delightful. Happy that we rediscovered La Cigale!"

"The ambiance was great, the staff was friendly, and food exquisite. We had appetizers, a main course and pre-dinner drinks as well as a great bottle of wine. Given the service and quality of food, we received great value for money. Will go their again."

"Although the menu is small, it was very difficult to decide on what to eat. We sat close to the kitchen window and noticed everything that came by and each dish looked amazing. The specials were interesting and well executed and the French Onion Soup is delicious."
