Restaurant used to be a local gem. Today they were overwhelmed by Mother's Day crowd and could not keep up. Service, what service? Wait for prebooked sitting was 25 min, wait to order, wait for clean glass, wait, wait, wait. List is endless. Food was not warmed up from the refrigerator. To ask for replacement was hopeless. May be they... More

9 of us for a graduation dinner party on a Friday night in a completely full restaurant. They hit it out of the ball park!!! Every plate was delicious, hot, staff was friendly, relaxed and made us feel at home. The live music wasn't too loud and we likely used over 100 glasses for our party alone as it's BYOB... More

Small, quaint BYOB that sits right on Rt. 30. French farmhouse decor with a wonderful menu. We were there on a Friday night and there was a lovely couple performing french music. The food did not disappoint. Highlights: charcuterie board and trout! The board presented an assortment of pates, cheeses, and jams. The trout was cooked to perfection accompanied by... More

We had heard about a la Maison Bistro in Ardmore a while ago, but we just never made it there. Until this weekend. We were unable to get reservations for a restaurant that we usually frequent. Since my sons were coming in from Manhattan to celebrate my birthday we decided to try to get reservations at la Maison. We lucked... More

A surprise local cuisine. A taste of Paris in our back yard. Fine French food served in a quaint atmosphere at reasonable prices. You can't go wrong with their onion soup and their Escargot. Save plenty of bread for dipping.

We visited this restaurant third time. May be it is a good thing that menu has not changed ( small variations of the same ). Friendly and experienced waiting staff. Food is above neighborhood average. Certain dishes deserved 5 stars. Overall it was very pleasant experience in a dynamic friendly place with a very good food and deserts. Very good... More

This was the worst experience I have had from start to finish I think in my whole life. I made the reservations weeks ago for Valentine's Day. I received a called that day confirming our reservation and also by the way tonight's dinner is prix fixe at $95/person. Okay I guess unexpected but what are our options? I asked that... More

Reviewing the restaurant as a "Bistro," aspiring to very good food with a warm and inviting atmosphere and experience that helps you remember your times in Paris- Background- We have been here maybe 8 times over a 10-yr span. On some visits we had seen a decline in food quality (but price increase) that made us hesitate to go back-... More
