Cute sidewalk cafe on Espanola Way. Service was good. Lovely salads. We enjoyed a gnocchi dish with sage and truffle, a wonderful pate, and a delicious dish of rum-seared scallops. Menu has traditional French offerings like sweet or savory crepes. Quiet area so outdoor seating was nice. Walking distance to the beach.

I went her with a French person and it was quite good. The place inside is tiny, so we sat outside in the patio area, which was pretty - but don't go when it's cold, since there are no heaters.

Food is good and coffee is much more better than normally available in US. Everything is more closely what I've used to see in Paris than in US. To me everything was fine and normal but after staying in US for a while this might even look little rude. Actually I don't like normal US style extra friendly style. It's... More

We ended in this restaurant as we had enough Italian or South American food. Very nice setting with outside area at the side , not on the street. Loved the escargots ! Duck salads was with chicken instead of duck but tasted well. Good food, we had a lovely evening !

There were three of us for two mornings so we tried a lot of dishes including Oeufs Cocotte – PROSCUITTO – GRUYÈRE, Oeufs Cocotte – SMOKED SALMON which both were lovely, our daughter ate MUESLI and I had MONTAGNARD. Truffled bacon in MONTAGNARD definitely not to be missed. Yes, the service is a bit slow but who wants to rush... More

This is NOT french food, its a poor imitation with a hefty price. I am local and heard so much about this place, decided to check it out, it's a Tourist Trap! Waiters don't care, food is mediocre at best. Go to Pauls or Downtown for French food. I cannot believe I was conned to go here, what a waste.

This restaurant transported me back to Paris with the most adorable location and fantastic food. Cider, escargot, and a hearty salad reminded me of travels in Normandy. Perhaps the most authentic French bite I've had outside of Europe.

I went today to A la folie following recommendations from friends and have to say really liked it at first. The food was also good. However, when I wanted to pay the waitress informed me that they dont accept American express cards. I didnt have other card with me nor cash so felt lost. When I asked why they dont... More

I've been there too many times over the years and it always charms me. It is simple and unpretentious. Simple menu, nice wine, pleasant staff. If I owned a place this would be close to what I would enjoy operating.

See my review from February 2012. Same food, but even better this time. They got Kronenbourg Biere in addition to Stella, just as I suggested. Started with a wonderful glass of Chateau Doisy-Daene, perfect for a hot day and just the thing when I come here next time and have the pate. My wife's salade was a home run. My... More
