Authentic French cuisine! The salmon crepes were amazing and were some of the best we have had. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The decor reminds me of the bistros I've been too in the south of France. I highly recommend this place.

Go there to eat. Quality and taste worth the price. Crisp baguettes on outside, soft on inside. Sandwiches so tasty. Sweet crepes- could have eaten several. Wish they were in Chicago area.

This restaurant has exceptional crepes and omelets. It is always a treat to have breakfast, brunch, or lunch at the French Market. They have recently moved to a new location and you will want to come back, again and again.

I'm pretty excited about trying this place. I make my own laminated pastry and had a great teacher who explained a great deal about the traditional French way to make them. I always enjoy comparing them to others. Additionally, I've passed the Clinch Avenue location...More

The people at The French Market offer a unique menu, and they prepare it very well. For me, however, the seating is extremely uncomfortable. More comfortable chairs would contribute to a better dining experience.
