We have been going to Cafe Beaujolais for 26 years. Never again! We went for lunch today to celebrate our anniversary. I ordered steak frites. A tenderloin steak which neither my husband or myself could chew. (My husband ordered a salad.) My bread plate held...More

I was really surprised at how poor the service was. We had to ask several times for things. The food was served warm to cold and my duck wasn't cooked. But I couldn't find any staff to ask them to cook it more. In years...More

Been going here for years. Always fantastic! Lunch and dinner imaginative and always a treat. Reservations needed.

Maybe we just had an off night. The food was mostly great but for two problems. We were told repeatedly that our entrees were on the way for quite a long time. When they finally arrived we were told a large take-out order and just...More

The black cod came with little ravioli - tasty. Mrs. S had the roast chicken, super tasty. I started with the basil and tomato soup, also yummy. Pleasant setting in an old wooden house on a back street. Dinner for two came to about $130,...More
