Healthy menu choices but lunch service was very slow.
Waitress was AWFUL! Food took almost an hour to come. Waitress didn’t acknowledge how long it took and then we had to beg to get the check. Food came out cold & soggy. Normally the food is very good here, but I feel as though the waitress just forgot we were there. The one time she came to our table she made it seem as though we were bothering her. AWFUL, AWFUL, service. She should be retrained or fired.
Service was quite slow and food wasn’t hot but yeah
The French Meadows St Paul garden is really a high point in the city's eateries. Our server couldn't have been better. Overall, our experience was just terrific.
Food was delicious. Wait staff was inattentive.
A bit disappointed with limited hours for some menu items. Came in for sandwich item that was not available after 5
This place is a gem. The sauces they serve with the breakfast quesadilla are wonderful!
Love coming to French Meadow, the servers are very aware of the customers needs, which is vey unusual in these times, appreciate the extra attention given to our requests.
Thank you for serving the customer with class and delicious food.
Count on it..it’s good! Serving sizes more than adequate. Service friendly and good.
I love the avocado on toast. It is so good...and healthful too.
We have always enjoyed the French Meadow before the pandemic. Currently, the service is a bit rough (the server brought the wrong food to my husband despite being told twice what he wanted; the server was also pretty slow to bring beverages, check on food, or bring the bill, especially given that the place was not busy), and the food was not as good as it used to be. For example, my Cobb Salad was missing two of the ingredients listed on the menu description. We hope that things improve as it used to be a great option for Grand Avenue.
Great food, busy but attentive server, desserts were incredible so save room.
Enjoyable experience, we sat on the patio. The service was good but the pace was relaxed. Might be too slow if you're on a tight schedule. Food was great, but a bit over-salted for my taste. Beer selection was good if you prefer IPAs. We had dessert which was delicious. Overall, we had a nice time there and would repeat.
A perfect place to meet a friend for lunch. We had a great time and no one was rushing us at lunch either.
The food was good, but I wouldn’t go back. On the Bill, they charged a 5% “employee wellness” fee. Honestly, if they had just added that 5% into the cost of the food, we never would have noticed. But the fact that we are paying to subsidize their employees health insurance really sucks. Just pay your employees a living wage like an actual job, the way every other country in the world does. I don’t want to support this and so I will not be going back.
We had an 11:15 reservation. Got right in and sat down and ordered. An hour and 15 minutes later our food finally arrived. Our waiter apologized for the delay. We were told they had a bunch of take-out orders the kitchen was working on. WHAT ABOUT US? We were here, waiting for our food. Very annoying that we were pushed aside and the take outs took priority over us. We had a wedding we were attending and were getting very anxious we would be late. The food was very good. We MIGHT be back, but if the same thing happens, we won’t be returning anytime soon. 😩
Overall French meadow is fantastic for brunch. My food was just a bit cold and the eggs over cooked, but still good
We usually love it here, but service was very slow even though we were one of the first tables there for breakfast. Had to wave server down for coffee refills. Order took a very long time for 3 people and the poached eggs for two of us were totally hard cooked for our Eggs Benedict. It was expensive to be so disappointed, but didn’t have the time to send our long awaited meals back. It may be a sign of not enough employees at many restaurants.
I love French Meadow. This time something was off. Our cuppacinos were all cold and came 5 minutes after our food. Two of the 4 plates had the wrong food on them. Funny thing was the place was not busy at all so not sure why things were the way they were. Will still go back and give it another chance.
It was the perfect place to celebrate my sister graduating with her doctorate!! Absolutely delicious food! Dessert was amazing. The service was so friendly and gave perfect suggestions. Highly recommend!!
Food is great, even unusually great. If you like it quiet ask for a seat by the front door. Around the corner will kill you! If you like hollering, shouting, and other rude but fun enterprizes go around the corner where elbows are flying , heads are bobbing, cross table discussions are occurring. Just got to find your niche and then all is well. I liked the place. Once I was directed to the quiet corner.
Server is a little "blah" and says "yes mam" constantly with a bit of a tone. It is odd.
Main dish was good - green curry with fried tofu. They have decent selection of vegetarian options along with meat dishes so good for all tastes. Many good dessert options as well. Potato flat bread was best part of meal.
Our server was awesome! Great food as always.
At noon they were out of their main soup. Somewhat disappointing.
Great food and love the atmosphere - good place to go with friends for a casual night out.
The food was very good. Our server, Reilley was excellent, we felt Covid safe both on the patio on a previous visit, and inside on this visit. The price is a bit high, but absolutely splurge on dessert!
Our server was so bad, that AFTER my son's credit card was run to pay the entire bill, I wrote a note on the merchant receipt that I hope my son would not be leaving a tip due to the poor service. As we we still seated, preparing to vacate our table, the same server returned to our table, picked up the merchant receipt, stood at our table and read the note in front of us, then remained STANDING at our table and DEMANDED to know: 1) had I ever before been a server (yes) and, 2) requested that I tell her what had been wrong with the service she had provided. YES, THIS NUT CASE SERVER THOUGHT IT WAS APPROPRIATE TO MAKE A SCENE AT OUR TABLE. Instead of responding to her demand for verbal discussion, I firmly told her to "get away from out table," as we rose to leave. Immediately, the server loudly shouted for the manager by first name, as IF the manager would be able to stop us from leaving & force us to tip her for her bad service and, now, her bad conduct. (Remember, the bill had already been paid).
We quietly walked out.
I always loved this place. I would highly recommend the breakfast burrito and the tomato basil soup. They have excellent coffee selection as well
I was surprised at the limited breakfast menu, was hoping for traditional pancakes or French toast but had to settle for a dry corn pancake. My husband had the classic breakfast, the eggs and bacon were average and potatoes undercooked. Our server was friendly but had to ask for coffee refills. The cake however was delicious.
I always love French Meadow; the setting, ambiance, and of course the food is always good. But post-Covid space seemed a bit tight. I'm probably a nervous nelly.
The acoustics in the restaurant were quite terrible. they might benefit from putting some noise reduction in the ceiling. We had to talk so loud in order for our party to hear each other just on the other side of the table. I think this is what all of the tables were doing around us, so everyone in the restaurant was essentially just shouting over each other.
If you want organic food and options, this is the restaurant for you!
Food was great! I always enjoy the tempeh rueben sandwich. The staff was very helpful on the busy day.
The food was excellent. the service initially was very prompt, but slowed down as restaurant filled. Took a long time to get bar service. Wait staff were knowledgeable and pleasant. Gen Mgr came by to apologize for the wait getting check. otherwise an overall good experience.
Our party was very happy with the food preparation and service.
AVOID IT: Rude, Terrible Service!!!
Have been to this restaurant many times in the past but will not go again! Had a reservation, arrived and requested a booth on the patio. The man doing the seating never looked up from his screen, mumbled and was rude from the start. When a booth opened up, we asked a waiter if we could move and he said sure. When we started to move, the man doing the seating returned and yelled at the waiter and told us to sit where he put us. I followed him and told him he was rude and had bad customer service. He started yelling at me and waving his hands around in my face. At that, I turned around and went back to my table. He followed me to the table, yelling and still waving his arms. I asked him multiple times to leave us alone and he refused to leave so me and my husband left the restaurant.
I sent an email to the Manager the next day detailing our poor experience and have received NO response. Real great French Meadow, real good.
Normally French Meadow has been consistent, but today the service was poor and slow, there was an issue with the food, and it wasn’t replaced in the way we asked. Nothing was taken off the price, either. We won’t choose FM for breakfast again, sadly.
The ambiance, food and service is terrific! Highly recommend this place at either location.
