Food, selection, service excellent. You get the feeling that everyone there really cares about your experience and wants you to feel at home. Nice portions, quality food, reasonable prices.

We stopped for lunch and had the business lunch for $14.95, steak and frites , endive salad with chicken. The food was good quality though very little meat in the business lunch. The atmosphere is very french bistro. The waiter was not the kind to ask how we were doing every 5 minutes as per american restaurants, but rather seems... More

Classy interior and excellent service, old school. We had the endive salad with chicken breast and the nicoise, both excellent. The chicken was superbly fresh; the salade nicoise was one of the best I've had. The only disappointment was the escargot. It's been a long time since we tried escargot (were captivated by the best ever in Santa Fe years... More

We went for lunch. I had the Croque Monsieur. It was the hands down best one I have had in the USA! There was one in Normandy, France that was excellent, but this one was even better! For those who don't know this dish, it's basically a grilled ham and cheese sandwich with Mornay sauce on top. Simple fare, but... More

There are few French Restaurants in our area. Relais De Paris is a nice addition. Many traditional French dishes with more conventional fare. They also have French Wines by the glass.

We've dined here several times and always enjoyed our meals. Today, we each ordered the Executive Lunch, a $15 special. The prime entrecote steak and natural free-range jidori chicken were in a delicious sauce Originale, a house specialty. The meats were high quality and perfectly cooked. The special included salad, fries and Arnold Palmers to drink. We enjoyed our table... More

Amazingly tasteful typical French food, "Brasserie style". Whether it is the "Croque Monsieur" of the "Entrecote", everything was as close as it gets from real French taste. Prices are affordable, the trip is more than worth it

Stopped in for a late-ish lunch and ordered an omelette with gruyere cheese. It was divine, served with a green salad and (too many) mixed berries. My glass of white burgundy complemented the meal. Nice decor.

We love this little French gem. Very reasonable food and wine list. Feels like a sweet little neighborhood place in Paris.
