Took our family of 5 out to celebrate our mother's 92nd birthday. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is beautiful and closed off from the busy Friday night crowds on Park Ave. We all ordered a different dish and everything was perfect. Between the Lamb, the Duck, the Steak, the Scallops and the Beef Bourguignon, everyone's meal was amazing.The staff... More

We had a wonderful dinner before attending a concert at Rollins College. Dominique welcomed us. The bread is wonderful and the wine selection very good. Our server was very attentive and took care of us nicely. I had Dominique's terrine of the day which was excellent as was the mushroom soup that my husband had. For entrees we took the... More

Cafe de France was highly recommended to us yesterday and I know why. First of all it's charming, just the type of small mom chain restaurant that I love. My dad said the French onion soup was the best he'd ever eaten in his life and he's 82! We went back for it today it was that good. While the... More

We had taken a two year break from Cafe de France after a bad Steak Tartar, but decided to give it another chance this evening. It was bittersweet....food was great but the service and ambiance were lacking. We started with the mussels and each had the Coq au Vin....wonderful preparations that we'd recommend. The server, however, was clearly not engaged... More

Greetings Susan S. We are very sorry that you had a bad experience with our staff! Indeed we are going through the usual "before the Holidays" new hiring, and it takes a while to do proper training. We try our best to teach our young recruits what is proper etiquette and what is not! It is not easy, but no... More

My mom told me this would be full of old people and too quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed our food, drinks, and service. Good bang for the buck.

We took friends from Heathrow to dinner as they were a little intimidated by French food. They loved it. Service was spot on and the new chef is tearing it up. Most of us had the elk. Perfectly cooked and tender. My friends ride the train to Winter Park often for dinner. This was our first. We will be doing... More

Cafe de France is not only a calm and lovely place it is a wonderful simple taste of France. The Pate is fresh and made right there by the owner. The food is not over done but just the right amount of flavor with the simple French bistro flare and freshness. The room has high ceilings and the atmosphere truly... More

Paris is our favorite city in the World ... And a little bit of that is in Winter Park... A simple very French cafe with French cooking and an outstanding menu. I strongly recommend this cafe with French music...pictures of French cafes...an outstanding date with my wife....

On Our first trip to Winter Park we were looking for a "unique" place for lunch and came across this restaurant. It looked cute & the menu was different than most other places in the area. We were seated promptly & placed our order. It seemed to take forever for the meal to come ( there were only 2 other... More
