About Au Revoir
Located in the heart of Hillcrest, Au Revoir Bistro saw it's first day in November 2010, a new born of the Mastellone family (Arrivederci, Il Postino, Buon Appetito, etc etc). Typical Parisian French Bistro, Au Revoir, has a casual ambiance and an atmosphere that transports you directly to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Our French Homemade Cuisine is a perfectly inexpensive recipe, a little bit of tradition, an ounce of modern French cooking inspired by different regions, and a big cup of love from our Chef Dédé and his team. Some of the house specialties are "escargots", "soupe à l'oignon", "boeuf bourguignon", "coq au vin", "frogs' legs", ...Et Voila !

Au Revoir Ratings and Reviews

This was our first time dining at this establishment. It won't be our last. We loved the quaint ambiance and the friendliness of the staff. Service was very attentive. We highly recommend the sea bass. The best I have ever had in my life! I still can't get over how delicious it was. The escargot was served warm, not hot as it should be. Disappointing. One other note: if you ask for water, they will bring it, but will charge you without telling you. Other than that, it was a very enjoyable dining experience and we will definitely return and recommend to others!

Service was friendly but somewhat lackadaisical. Salad was great. Beef Bourginon had metallic aftertaste. Quail was overcooked and dry. The escargot was overcooked. I've been here several times before and had a good experience, this time was disappointing.

Our reservations were for 7 pm. We were seated Immediately and our food order was taken promptly. Then we waited an hour and twenty minutes for our first course. I ordered the salmon which was over cooked but had a delicious sauce. We finally finished our meal at 9:20 - two hours and twenty minutes after arrival! When we received our bill, I was surprised to see a $2.00 charge for tap water. Au Revoir has been one of our favorite local bistros for years but this is the second time we have been disappointed in the food and the service was deplorable. It was Bastille Day, the restaurant was packed but they had to expect the crowd. The neighborhood now has another French bistro and perhaps the competition will require Au Revoir to improve.

Service was excellent - nice little French place with good atmosphere. Salad was good, but small; scallops were very good!; bread and garlic butter delish; lavender frites were amazing; mussels were fishy so we sent them back. Would go again. Good beer and wine.

I love this place- delicious food and great value. My only complaint... If you're going to offer bottomless mimosas, there's no reason to be rude when people ask for a third round. It wasn't packed. There was no wait. We weren't being loud or disrespectful. It felt like we were being encouraged to leave. We specifically sought the place out so we could have time to catch up between old friends, but the service went from excellent to sour very quickly.
This is probably our 6th visit.
It has become very popular and our last two visit we had no reservation and couldn't get in. We took a friend who had not been before and she order the veal chop which was one of the specials but no price was mentioned. She I didnt ask since most entres were in the mid $20 range. Her's was $35 and she was upset. We had the steak with frites which we had several times in the past. They must have changed their meat supplier. The steak was larger but very tough.

My wife and I tried Au Revoir based on other Open Table reviews. We found the food to be very good. We each had a different appetizer we had never tried before and found them to be very good and the entrees were tasty as well. The service can be a little slow if they are busy. They are very good at getting you seated (reservations recommended for sure), getting your drink order including consulting on wine choice, taking the meal order and serving it. They could have come be the table during the meal a little sooner than they did....make the rounds so to speak just a little more often. If you are not in a rush then the pace of service is suitable. If you are on a tight schedule this isn't going to be a good choice despite the wonderful meal.
Not a happy diner
We have been to Au Revoir many times. This was a very bad experience and I do not think we will return. The food was good as always, but the service was rude, abrupt and very unpleasant. We were celebrating a birthday and hoping to enjoy ourselves. That did not happen.
The waiter we complained about came over and instead of apologizing, he was argumentative. I would think since we are regular diners, they would have been more conciliatory, but that was not the case.

We have eaten here many times and are always more than pleased. The mussels and frites are the best in San Diego, and every salad and entree we have tried has been beautifully prepared and delicious. The feel is a cross between french country and neighborhood bistro. Service is attentive but not cloying. Au Revoir is definitely one of our "go-to" places.
Excellent Food, but too busy for quick service
Three of us went and we enjoyed the "fish of the day (which was halibut provencal), the seabass plate, and the steak. Each was really excellent. They also have my favorite wine--a Sanceere. The only problems with this restaurant are that (1) it is a small restaurant in a small strip mall with inadequate parking; (2) because the food is so good, it is very popular--be sure to make reservations; and (3) it is so busy that it is sometimes difficult to get the waiter's attention. But I would definitely go again and again. Next time I will allow more time.
