La Bonne Table Ratings and Reviews
We had our anniversary dinner here on Sunday and I could not have been more pleased. The server was attentive, gave spot-on recommendations, and helped us celebrate with some champagne (so nice!). The food and dessert were delicious, and the cocktails were very good and reasonably priced. This place has been recommended to me by friends quite a few times, and I am so glad we finally tried it out for a special occasion.
The overall experience was a delight. We were promptly seated for our 7 pm reservation. It was our anniversary dinner so a friend had sneakily informed them of that. Within moments we were approached with 2 glasses of champagne and a hearty congratulations from the waiter. We started with the cheese plate, warm Demi baguette and bottle of Pinot blanco. All Lovely. However, the entrees were impeccable and truly the star of the show. I had the duck which is served over Dijon Brussels sprouts. The meat seemed to actually melt in my mouth and was flavored and cooked perfectly. My husband had the pork chop which he also raved about. The sneaky part came in the shape of a creme brûlée that our friend ordered for us as her gift. All in all this was an exceptional dining experience. I can't wait for next "excuse" to come back!!!
This is a very charming neighborhood restaurant with great ambience and very well prepared French food. Entrees are limited to five or six, so review the menu before booking. We had a pork entree and a mussel entree and both were delicious and well prepared. Portions were very generous.
We love La Bonne Table! Always a great spot for love, life and celebration. The food is outstanding and delishus and the service is impeccable. Totally reasonable and not overpriced but make sure you make reservations because there are only 6 tables which makes this place warm and cozy. A must try!
Oh my goodness, what a find! I was looking for a French restaurant for Bastille Day and found this one on Open Table. This tiny restaurant in the Hillcrest district is simply amazing. Reservations are a must since this place only has around 10 tables. The food and service were exquisite. The menu is classic French with all the choices you would expect. We will definitely return.
After spending our 19th Wedding Anniversary there last year, we wanted to spend #20 there as well. Excellent choice, Again! We had the Escargot and Duck Confit with some great Pinot Noir.
The food, service and ambiance were perfect. We'll be back again, hopefully not waiting a whole year .
Amazing food & a great, intimate setting! This was our 1st time to La Bonne and we'll definitely be coming back! If you like French food and a unique setting (it's in an old house) then you'll like this place. Prices are reasonable and I'd recommend making a reservation as this place is quite small.
one of our favorite neighborhood places. Stable menu. Everything is good on it. we have tried most things. I gravitate towards the duck which is just yummy very authentic, very juicy, full of flavor, with nice brussel sprouts accompaniement. Steak, chops, moules , all excellent, so are first courses. My wife had salmon rillettes and salade frisees for a meal and it was great. Fine desert . Fine wine. It is all a short modest menu and wine list.. a classic bistro style, of a few good things well done. We always go back and are never disappointed .
Our server, Yo, is great as always. He's very attentive and helpful. Our food was delicious, our friend who ordered steak and frites asked for medium rare but steak was medium well. Thankfully they were nice enough to comp her dish. We always have a great experience here and highly recommend it!
The first time we at there the food was very good and we enjoyed ourselves. But with such a limited menu and not wanting to get the same thing, our choices were more limited. One of the specials was lamb stew. It was just okay but I felt it was overpriced at $26 and was not an exceptionally generous portion. The fish selection was trout and there was no other white fish. My wife does not eat any pork products, is not crazy about mussels and since she eats a lot of fish, she had to order the trout again. The restaurant was fairly busy and the service was great. I recommend it if you have not been there before, but we will take a break for a while and try some of the other French restaurants that have had good recommendations.
Our group of 3 was dining early on a Saturday, so it was very quiet because there were few people at that time. The service was diligent and professional and unobtrusive. Our food was delicious. I had the escargots, which were fabulous and the trout amandine, which was fine. Next time I'll order the moules, which I much prefer to the trout. One friend had the steak frites which was perfect and the other had the special a lamb stew, outstanding. I definitely want to return to explore the menu.
The service was very good and the staff was knowledgeable. We enjoyed a cheese plate and the foie gras and the recommended wine. Dinner was disappointing. I ordered the house special (baked salmon and green beans), but the fish was slightly under cooked and not well seasoned. Green beans were just ok. My wife ordered the duck which was moist and tasty,but the meal was not at all memorable. We ordered dessert and coffee next and again nothing special. I would have preferred smaller portions for both the chocolate mouse and the creme puff/fruit. Coffee was excellent. Total tab was about $150 including tip. Not interested in going back. Much better restaurants in Hillcrest. Still looking for an excellent French restaurant in town.
I took a friend here for her birthday and we had a fabulous dinner. We were deciding between three French restaurants and selected La Bonne Table based upon the menu and the reviews. We were not disappointed! The food was authentic and the service was excellent. It's a cozy spot ideal for get togethers with close friends or a date night.
