There were 8 of us that ate here this past Sunday, March 18th. The waitress was attentive, but not pushy and the food was great. I have already recommended this restaurant to a colleague. We ate their for brunch and to get caught up with our kids.
Went for dinner after a movie at the Landmark. Comfortable neighborhood place. Reasonable wine selection, great escargot, and stuffed chicken and trout special were perfectly cooked and excellent. Chocolate mousse dessert was rich and quite large. Good value for money
We stayed for hours. A few had been there before but not all of us together. The staff was great. Went back for brunch on Sunday.
Anniversary dinner when great. Tuesday's are set menu option night. Duck confit was yummy with pickled pear walnut salad. This French bistro is a San Diego gem. Never an outrageous burden on the wallet; has with great value. Note: Can get overly warm inside when the kitchen gets cranked up.
We've been wanting to visit Au Revoir for quite a while, having heard great things about it. I was particularly glad to see there was an easy place to park. Upon arrival at 6:00 p.m., the restaurant was near empty. We had a reservation, but were not welcomed by name. The service was not especially warm or cordial; rather, efficient. The food was outstanding, and we would return just for that. Onion soup was requested, but never delivered; I'm unsure whether we were charged for that. The fish plate was generous, and well done. The scallops over risotto were excellent. The filet was also excellent. One guest had a dinner salad, which was fine. The bread was not fresh, merely okay. the garlic spread (no butter) which accompanied the bread was too liquid, and readily spilled. The white house wine was tried, and was surprisingly very good.
Lovely little French restaurant with authentic French food. Small and a bit noisy but delightful and affordable.
I felt the service was poor based on the fact that we were never asked if we would like a drink before ordering our dinner. I had to bring it to the wait staff's attention that no one asked us if we would like something to drink other than water.
Also the timing of the meal was off. It would have been nice to enjoy a glass of wine and maybe some bread prior to our meal arriving. Also a bit pricey!
Great food, great place to enjoy a well prepared meal
Au revoir is a wonderful place to dine and have fun. The food is delicious and service is friendly and attentive. Thank you Au Revoir for working so hard and making a delightful evening.
We had 6:30pm reservations on a Saturday. They were out of 4 items...No mussels in a French restaurant in San Diego?
We really loved this place. Located in great area. Parking in front but was full. Service was good and food was high quality and excellent. Prices were reasonable.
Great lunch as usual. Maybe a bit on the salty side for the seabass and the lavender fries, but nothing to be disappointed about. The waiter was super nice and very professional. A great place to eat for sure.
Great meal! A very French menu. Service was very good, and the atmosphere was exceptional. It was a real treat for my wife's birthday, and reasonable prices too!
We were there on Valentine's Day, which was our mistake. They were crazy-busy but only had two wait staff and two bussers. Everyone was so very kind and doing their best but it was too much for this little restaurant. With our long wait at the table for even menus, the price for the Prix fixe menu was unreasonable - 3 people came to $275 with one average bottle of wine, add the tip and I was at $325. I highly recommend them for their food and their service but don't go on a holiday - the place is just too small.
The food was amazing as well as service. Would love to go again. I loved the lobster bisque and will sea-bass. Very tasty!
Very relaxed atmosphere. Food was outstanding. The risottos and creme brûlée were flawless. Solid wine menu made the pairings work nicely.
Great food! Great service!! Pate and Camembert were delicious and the Salmon/Scallops were amazing!! We just found our new “place!!”
Best brunch in town for the money
The food and service at Au Revoir never disappoints. Great French food at very reasonable prices. You can’t go wrong.
The inside was lovely, quiet and easy parking on a Wednesday night right outside. Our waiter was ver attentive and the food was very good. A quiet gem.
Have never had anything less than delicious. Mussles, salmon, scallops, duck, cheese plate -- all worth going back again. Really appreciate a restaurant quiet enough to have a conversation with our dinner guests.
Thank you, Au Revoir!
This is a very comfortable authentic French bistro with a "neighborhood" feel and a pleasant ambiance. The staff is amiable and the service is excellent. The menu has a nice selection of quality food, including a number of gluten-free selections. The wine list is nice.
Always great food and service. I consistently think of this restaurant for an after movie outing with friends. I often get their trout which is about the best in town.
Very comfortable and authentic and will balance from food service the ambience
The food here is fantastic! I highly recommend Au Revoir and can’t wait to go back.
Excellent food and friendly service. Had both brunch and lunch menu available so plenty of options
It pains me to write this review, as Au Revoir used to be our favorite French restaurant in San Diego. It must have changed owners, or chefs, because our last visit was very different than usual. The French Onion soup had barely any bread, and the cheese was so rubbery, we suspect it may have been mozerella, or something old or reduced fat? They even got rid of the traditional French bowls. The entrees we ordered were mediocre as well. There are so many other new French choices in San Diego that we unfortunately will not return. Au revoir "Au Revoir", c'est bien dommage!
Great food quality st good price! Friendly staff.
Charming bistro, classic cuisine, good experience
I went with 2 older friends and I am no spring chicken so it met the needs both for comfort and food for all of us. Our server was very considerate. He took good care of us and was knowledgeable and explained our choices. We had a wonderful time together due to the quiet at the time we were there - we choose mid-afternoon for that as this is a small and popular restaurant and guess it would be noisy then.
Stopped in for Sunday Brunch/Lunch. Great authentic bistro fare and excellent friendly service.
Made a reservation for four on new years Eve, showed up less and 5 minutes late due to traffic and parking, but we did call to inform the staff that would be a few moments late. Upon arriving we were seated, the ambiance and decorations were nice.
Once we sat down we noticed that there was a prix fixed menu for the night, which was a surprise to us because that information was no where on the website and while the food looked good, we had other dishes in mind that we wanted to try and we were unavailable to.
Never the less, we decided to stay and we could have a lovely evening trying new entrees.
But of course, we didn't have a single person talk to us, or even fill our water classes for 15 minutes. Even though my fiancé and I both made eye contact with everyone on the floor, they would look at us, see our empty table and quickly look away. The lack of respect and just common curtesy we felt was definitely not how we envisioned starting out of New Years Eve.
we decided to get up and leave, given how we still hadn't even received water, or a greeting from a place that expected 60 dollars from each of us minimum for their menu.
Overall, we were all extremely unhappy with the events, or lack of, from Au Revoir. I understand it was New years Eve and there was a larger party in the back, but all of the other tables surrounding ours were empty. Personally I believe that is never an excuse to sharply break eye contact with customers who are just looking to get water, order a bottle of wine, and food.
Went for an early NYE dinner and didn't realize there was a pre fix menu for $60/person. The food was ok, nothing special and certainly not worth the money. It was very over priced for the average quality of the food. Server was friendly and support staff was efficient. Overall I wasn't impressed.
been there before, love it
So glad to have found this gem in Hillcrest. The food and wine was exceptional.
My sister requested that duck a la orange be part of our Christmas dining cuisine. Since the restaurant is located along the traffic path between my condo and the church where we would be attending Christmas Eve service and since duck was part of the prixe fix dinner, we went there.
My sister enjoyed her experience so much that we went back for lunch on the following Wednesday in order to introduce our other sister to the restaurant.
The only negative thing to report is that my brioche dessert selection did not contain the promised raspberries but blueberries instead. No explanation or apology was offered. The brioche also had very little white chocolate. Of course the brioche was highly edible; my sisters'
desserts were fine.
Hands down my favorite restaurant in San Diego. Best food. Best atmosphere. Best service. Best everything.
Au Revoir is an all around excellent restaurant! I highly recommend it!
GREAT food. Memorable dishes, really. Homemade fois gras patê, orange duck, rabbit. Choco mousse. COULD have been of the Left Bank. A bistro, informal. CHEF ANDRÉ master flavor blender.
