Went for lunch. Cafe is clean and service is nice. The food is what I would call Tex-French, nothing like you would see in a bistro in France. Quantity is the word here, non quality. Portions are huge, per Texas standards. I had broccoli quiche which was just ok. The pommes frites I ordered with it was good. I perused... More

Great dessert and coffee. A perfect place to end an evening out. All of their desserts are to die for. Their bread pudding is one of my favorite

Relaxing jazz and wonderful dinner. Bar accommodated by making peach Bellini for me, my all time favorite and it was my all time favorite. Do not skip dessert, yummy. The French influence on the cuisine - best ever sauces and Caesar dressing. To die for.

I have eaten both lunch and dinner at Bonnie Ruth's many times. It is always a place I like to go with my gal pals because the food is good, the wine is good and you can talk without a lot of background noise.

We love the food here. I love the Cassoulet they make and order it the most. Their pastries are very good, love the Italian Cream cake!

Three if us had really nice lunches. My daughters cobb salad was huge. My quiche and mixed greens was delucious and my husbands chicken and fries was very tasty. A great place for a casual lunch.

I met friends for a birthday lunch on a Saturday. The place wasn't too crowded. probably because there are so many lunch options in Water's Creek. The omelettes, salads. and half sandwich/soup options we ordered were all fine- not special, just fine. The prices are $11 and up with an adequate portion, but the value isn't as good as Panera...
