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.

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.

the service was excellent. the food was very good, good enough to warrant another visit to the restaurant. portions were generous and flavors were distinct. the small setting meant that it was quiet, great break from the too big and too noisy places.
Good buy limited menu
La Bonne Table is a very cute restaurant in Hillcrest and the service was good. However, since they serve seasonal food, their menu is not on their website. I found the menu to have a very limited selection so there was only one entree that suited my taste.
duck confit craving satisfied
We went here to celebrate our anniversary. Food was perfect, duck confit and French onion soup are perfect. We were greeted by a really nice waiter with champagne in his hands for us. I put on the reservation that it is our anniversary and the complimentary champagne was unexpected but was truly appreciated and enjoyed. Thank you La Bonne for making our special day a truly special one. We will definitely come back.
I wish the food could match it's cozy decor.
First off, Antoinette is very professional and an asset to the place. She is very welcoming.
The decor is absolutely right. They got the feel and look right. I felt I was in a little West Village (NYC) restaurant. However, the food was good, but not good enough to make another trip.

Best Bouillabaisse I've eaten and I lived in San Francisco for 4 years, where they've a few great French restaurants. Can't wait to have my Duck Confit again though... Love how this place reminds me of Washington, DC.
