    Fantastique

    Lovely bistro. Superb food. Excellent service. A little noisy. A little pricey. One of the best French restaurants in Philly--or anywhere else outside Paris. Great place for a special occasion.

    a really nice place

    Unpretentious (unlike Parc) with great (and authentic) French food. The atmosphere is comfy and the service is unobtrusive.

    Best Bistro in Philadelphia!

    Bistro La Minette is everything Parc is not! It has that quaint, French neighborhood feel, wonderful Kir Royal, flavorful appetizers (the poached egg and mussels are amazing!), fresh entres (the bass is light and the chicken is full of flavor), amazing mac and cheese and good desserts! Hands down, this is a much more enjoyable experience than the crowded, noisy Parc and the food is better!

    great experience

    I have had three flawless meals at this neighborhood bistro. Service is always spot on even when the place is packed. I particularly enjoyed the egg meurette (poached egg with a red wine sauce). I got the sardines the other two times I came. They are fresh and not as "fishy" as i remember them being at other places. The lamb was pretty killer as well with a white wine braise. The desserts shine. I don't think I have had better simple preparations of some of these desserts. Pot de creme that wasn't too sweet or thick and a tart tatin that was out of this world. I recommend the place highly.

    Allergies

    I happen to have a laundry list of allergies that have recently erupted, so it is feel like a burden when asking about the menu. The kitchen was more than happy to replace ingredients, even making some components on the fly to suit my allergic limitations. As pricey as it was, remember you're eating chantrelles at $150 a lb, and other high quality ingredients of the like, you are certainly getting your money's worth.

    Very hit or miss.

    Could have been an off night, but i rarely spit my food out in public and I love haricot vert...but not these. Both myself and my date were shocked. it was like they'd been soaked in old soy sauce...Could have been the bacon, but these were truly beyond. The steak was very good, but I ordered it medium rare, and you'd think a french loving Philly chef would appreciate that. I got a Medium, to medium well steak. I would have said something, but the staff seemed very confident, and not open to making things better (They brought amuse bouche to the table and I don't eat salmon...and yet no effort was made to bring something else. But then again, restaurants can't cater to everyone I suppose.) The potato side dish was good but overly salty. The Alzacian pizza I had as an appetizer was very yummy, and I highly recommend just ordering that with a nice dry white wine. Skip the garlic soup, it's just ok. And please, please don't order the Coquille St. Jacques, diver scallops. They were sandy, and their lovely taste, and preparation was overshadowed by the heavy orange flavors in the dish. Sandy scallops when they are $15 for two, was the straw that broke our back. We left. Oh and the dessert list, reads like any other french restaurant in any other city. Very sad considering the chef's background. There is authentic then there is snooze fest central: Profiterals, Creme Brulee, Apple Tartes...you get the idea. I was told this place rocked...and was good as Bistro 7, which I ADORE! So I'm going to have to go back, but I'll do it when someone else is paying. Cause I just dropped $120 and I feel totally ripped off, and I hate that.
