Went for dinner after a movie. Warm and pleasant small interior reminiscent of France. Full bar and reasonable wine choices. Escargot were excellent with plenty of garlic butter and parsley. Bouillabaisse was generous and tasty and the Côte de porc juicy and tender with s side of very rich potatoes augratin. Too full for dessert but chocolate mousse looked quite good.

While most of the food was quite delicious, my steak was not. I ordered the steak "very well done" - yes, I know that steak should not be cooked to this extent, but that's the way I like them. The steak came out with small amount of blood pooling on the top of the meat. When I cut it, the center was pink and cool. This is NOT well done. Very disappointed. I ate the rest of the meal, and took the steak home, where I completed the cooking process and enjoyed it very much.

Read the reviews and had to try it. This place has been in the neighborhood for quite a while, but under different ownership/names. They found the perfect combination of a pleasing wine list, great food (I had the lamb and my friend had the mussels), attentive service, and the perfect French Bistro ambiance. Will definitely go back!

Tasty traditional French food! I thought the frites dry, the bread was too crisp as if it had sat out a long time. The duck, brussel sprouts and Fr. onion soup was great! We dine here periodically. It seemed like we waited awhile for our entres.

La Bonne Table was fabulous. A friend kept raving about the place, so my boyfriend took me for my birthday. It was so good, boyfriend took his visiting aunt from Toronto along with his parents there the following week. He had the pork chop on both occasions ... it was divine ! ! !

Wonderful food! We were there for Restaurant Week, so we got to try a lot of things. The French onion soup was perfect, with a dark rich broth full of onions and lots of melted cheese. My husband loved the escargot and the garlic butter was delicious. I was full after that rich onion soup, so when they served my duck confit -- 2 large duck legs -- with brussel sprouts, I had them pack it up to take home, and we had a whole dinner the next night. My husband had the trout almandine, and enjoyed it. For dessert we had a perfect crème brulee, with lots of sugary crust and a very creamy crème. We'll definitely go back!

Everything was just perfect; excellent drink, memorable food and lovely, soft anbiance. I love small restaurants like this. Very intimate. Service was first rate and the entire establishment was impeccably neat and clean. The best.

Great little place - great food - good service...!
One little note to the owners - that's also why only 4 stars overall. The pretty small menue needs to change - it is the same for too long and now is fall and should have a fall menu as well...;-) I know you can do it!

A truly great place to eat. Lamb was the best I've had in years. My wife had the pork chop which was delicious, and so large, I got to have some the next day too. Mr. Yo, the dining room manager was a very gracious host and very helpful.

Very little place, cozy if you don't mind having people right next to you. Sorry to say, but we were not impressed with the quality of the food. We ate the mussels (frozen) with fries (also frozen), lamb chops (Costco type), and the duck thighs (well cooked and with good flavor). As per the desserts, we also a sad experience. We ordered the chocolate mousse (very bitter with too much cream on top), and the creme brulee (nice caramelized top layer with fruit, but not the right consistency - liquid like). The service was friendly and efficient.

Delicious French provincial - a small but excellent menu. The night I went they had an appetizer special, a salmon rillettes, that I could happily live on. My lamb and my wife's pork chop were cooked and seasoned perfectly. Portions were surprisingly American-sized, but that's what doggie bags are for.
Atmosphere is friendly and informal.

Disappointed. It got fantastic reviews on OpenTable, Yelp & TripAdvisor, with several people saying that it was better than any meal they'd eaten in Paris. Well, I honestly don't know where in Paris those folks have dined, because my wife & I regularly rent an apartment in the City of Light, and by the standards of the bistros there, La Bonne Table is - at best - middle of the road. Service was great, pleasant & quietly efficient. However, the food was mediocre - not terrible, but far from memorable. Wine was inexpensive, and it showed. Won't be returning.

Warning, this place does not have air conditioning. Came here 7 months pregnant with my friend whose also 7 months pregnant on a hot day. Open air only, and they don't have iced tea! It was very hot. They only serve soft drinks from the bottle. Food was good, but I didn't find it overly authentic. Would probably be a nice date night on a cooler evening, but probably won't be back.

Very disappointed in the food. Just so-so and it was not inexpensive. Overcooked duck and highly seasoned lamb chops. Wait staff was attentive, but restaurant is not worth the cost.

Highly recommended. If you are seeking a great French meal in a relaxed atmosphere, this is your place. The service is top notch and you will feel well taken care of by everyone on staff at La Bon. Don't expect the bar crowd here, this is a quaint and classy place for a great meal and some good wine. You will feel your tough week or tough day of work peel away after dining here. Keep up the terrific work La Bon Table.

I'm a huge fan of Bonne Table and it never disappoints. Fantastic Onion Soup, a new lobster in puff pastry appetizer to die for, and our party had lamb chops, steak frites and duck confit, each perfect. Servers Yo and Victor took fantastic care of us as we sat on a patio table and watched the world go by while feasting on amazing food.
