As good as Paris without traveling. Ambiance is charming once you enter from a very small strip center with difficult parking. Food is so worth the hassle/

Dear Phyllis,
Thank you very much for your review ! Indeed, parking can be challenging during peak hours (Lunch time between noon and 1pm. Dinner time between 7pm and 8pm). Complimentary valet is available Wednesday to Saturday next to our neighbor "Thai Spice".
Merci beaucoup !
Andrea & Didier

This small French restaurant was a pleasant realization of all it's reviews. Four of us where able to find offerings on the menu that more then satisfied each of our tastes. The ESCARGO stood out the most. Served a bunch of different ways, mine was with puff pastry. I had a wonderful crispy duck with orange sauce on the side. Two of the ladies had escargot crepes. The last had the Beef Bourgogne. All dishes were superb. Andrea & Didier enlightened our experience with their personal attention. All in all, a great evening at our new best French restaurant.

Having a dearth of French restaurants in Fort Lauderdale, what a pleasure and surprise to find this gem of a true, classic French Bistro on Commercial Blvd! We were there on a Friday night with one other couple.

Didier Martin, the host and owner, and his charming, bubbly wife and chef, Andrea, made our evening fun, seamless and tasteful!

Two of us had escargots to start: classic and wonderful. We also sampled the gravlax, good but perhaps too much dressing. The soup special, eggplant soup, was excellent.

For our mains, we had the seafood crepe in a wonderful, light Moroccan curry, lemon sole, one ordered with mango and the other with tarragon sauce, and the salmon with tarragon sauce. All were truly tasty and well prepared.

We will be happy to go back! Our new, best local French Restaurant!

Merci beaucoup and looking forward to welcome you back !
