The line is always bad, but there's a reason for that. Because it's worth the wait. Always. I've never had a meal, dessert, or experience that was less than excellent. One of the best meals I've ever had is the shrimp and artichoke with goat...More

The food is wonderful but there is a wait ... but a very worthwhile wait. The wait allowed me time with my friend so it was a win-win.

The French Pantry never disappoints! The service is fast and friendly and every single bite is delicious! The bruschetta is a must when you stop in for lunch! Be prepared to wait but it’s worth it.

I’ve never traveled to Europe, but going to the French pantry can only be described as traveling to Europe........ there is not one item on the menu that is not delicious. Well, nothing that I’ve tried.

All you have to do is drive by and see the people lined up outside rain or shine! The food is French inspired and the deserts are out of this world. The bread they serve and bake are used at local high end restaurants. You...More

You can't make reservations. But, they do accommodate large groups, if you call ahead and tell them how many are planned. I've been to a couple Meetups there where they made accommodations.

I heard that it was sold, but haven't heard any word on a new location. So sad to see the original owners leave. They're a hard act to follow!
