I've enjoyed two entrees at La Note: The Ratatouille ($16.00), which is served over couscous, is hearty and traditional. The vegetables are well cooked (soft, not crispy), but the dish is tasty. The Raviolis du Jour ($15.50) are filled with fresh ricotta, topped with a...More

I've been here more than once and it's enjoyable, but not worth the long waits that you may experience at prime time. I had the lemon gingerbread pancakes with poached pears, and and the middle of the pancakes were still gooey and partly raw. However,...More

Let me start by saying the food at La Note is always good. Not cheap. In fact, rather expensive for a low-key, casual place. But the food is fresh, well-prepared, deliciously evocative of Provencal (French) cuisine, all that. But this is a restaurant that does...More

Took us 30 minutes on a weekday at lunch in a not so inexpensive place! Obviously popular. A good range and good food. The soups, eggs benedictine and Nicoise salad were excellent. 20% mandatory tip and an exhortation to tip the waiters more is perhaps...More

Visited this restaurant on vacation, and thought everything was delicious! We actually went here two days in a row, because everyone loved it. My family of four ordered the cinnamon brioche soaked in orange-water batter, sprinkled with lavender honey (Yes, it does taste as good...More

Never been before, but will return. Pastry basket! French omelettes, mocha in bowl, atmosphere, delicious food. Well worth a trip to enjoy a Francophile experience. Lots of devoted regulars. Just delightful!!

Came here to eat breakfast before a tour of the University. Very good pastries. The egg dishes were delicious. Make sure to not eat bite of garlic when you mean to eat a potato.

I have not been there for brunch, but I would expect long lines. I don't know if you can phone for reservations. In my opinion, nearly any wait is worth it.
