I've eaten at this restaurant maybe 4 times in the past couple years, most recently for a business lunch. Lots of potential here but something stops me from putting it over the top with a better rating. It's so cute and unique that it could be spectacular. My dining companion and I both ordered crepes which were delicious but it... More

We really like this place! We both work downtown and dine in the city often, we feel there are very few options in this area so when we find one we like we want to make sure they get some recognition. Located in the far corner of the mall away from the other restaurants, L'Eiffel has a cute courtyard for... More

Recently enjoyed lunch with a high school friend at L'Eiffel Bistrot in South Barrington. Have been there a few times in the last 2 years and each time we are not disappointed. Waitstaff is attentive and knowledgeable on the menu items. We began our lunch with French Onion Soup; very tasty, nice broth, right portion of cheese ... Delicious! We... More

I had been looking for a nice little, romantic restaurant to take my wife for our 25th Anniversary. You know, the kind of intimate setting where you could look into your dates eyes, reminisce, talk with each other and actually hear what your partner is saying. With all the chain restaurants now, I thought this wasn't a possibility. Then I... More

We found a new shopping mall in South Barrington called the Arboretum. After finishing our shopping, we noticed a very nice-looking French restaurant and went in. They offered a large choice of sweet and savory crepes, a few sandwiches and a pasta dish plus a couple of lunch specials. The three of us ordered savory crepes and a dish of... More

This bistro has a delicious & varied crepe menu. It is a favorite place for lunch, but just ok for the dinner service & dinner menu.

We met a couple of friends for brunch here, but we got there a little early. The restaurant was just opening so we were waiting outside when the owner (nicest, most kind person I have met in a long time) invited us in and offered us coffee until the restaurant officially opened. I was so touched by his kind gesture!... More

Being Paris lovers stopped into L'Eiffel Bistro and Creperie. Very nicely appointed with great service. They have happy hour from 4-7 Tuesday -> Friday. We also ordered a nice cheese and pate plate. We definitely want to return for dinner.

I have lived in the area for 5 years and just tried this restaurant for the first time this year. Their crepes are fantastic and my husband had a wild game platter that was very interesting and different. I will definitely be going back!
