NOT a TRUE French Restaurant! 10/3/2006

My wife, my two sons and I went to this restaurant a few months ago -since we had received a $100 coupon through Comcast- and expected to see at least one true French speaking individual in this so-called "French Restaurant"...to no avail. No, the owner isn't French, the waiter/waitress isn't French, the hostess isn't French and there's no French chef. However, since I'm fairly easy going, I would let all of this non-Frenchness go if it weren't for the food, which wasn't true French either. Now, I have lived in France for over 7 years and kind of have an idea of what true French food ought to be like...whether the "nouvelle cuisine" or other! Unfortunately, the service was horrible too! To make this story short, it really bugs me when a restaurant tries to be something that it isn't - and then capitalize on it! For example, I have never been in a Chinese restaurant where the owner and cook are not Chinese or of Chinese descent! I don't want to seem pretentious but when I go to a French, Italian, Chinese et al. restaurant, I am paying for an "experience." Otherwise, I might as well go to "Red Robbin" and eat good American food. But restaurant owners shouldn't try to portrait an experience on their clients that they are unable to and then charge them twice the price for that lie. That's dishonest and unethical! more

Le Gourmand 8/19/2005

Le Gourmand is located in sleepy Ballard neighborhood. It's a tiny house that has been converted into a restaurant. The cuisine is French but the owner, Bruce, uses what's locally in season; produce and fish. His wife makes the desserts which usually consist of ice cream or sorbets. This place is a perfect choice for a special occasion. The decor is like a scene out of a Mid Summer Night's Dream. more

Goose bumps, people! 5/5/2005

We go to this homey french restaurant on our anniversary every year. I believe this place used to be a house and they remodeled it to a small cute restaurant. The waitperson is so professional and friendly that she will make you feel at home even when you don't understand some of the vocabrary in the menu. Basically you pick your entry and appetizer which is from about $30, then you'll get warm vegitables with entry and cold salad after meal. Bread is great and from a bakery (I always forget to check it out) in Ballard and coffee is from Lighthouse (my favorite!). When I had their salmon for the first time, I got goose bumps all over my body. So Good. The owner/chef has his own herb garden in the back, and he always comes out to greet and chit chat with each customers. You need to make a reservation. more
