I have been here numerous times and I have never ben let down. I am sad to see that Gregg and Keila left bad reviews for them. I have eaten French food all over the world and I dont think they deserve it unless the service was terrible. I ordered the steak frites and cheese and we all got carried away. The menu is good and the wine menu is quite extensive. I rarely go downtown to eat and this was a treat.

The only reason to go here is the atmosphere. Food not memorable or very interesting. Service was kind and attentive but every single dish had an issue. We had the escargots, beet salad, hanger steak and coq au vin.....all just ok. The location is good...wish the food matched the atmosphere...overall rating...meh.

The food and cocktails were delicious. The only issue I had was that all of the oysters had grit/sand in them. Major faux pas. Not acceptable even when I prepare raw oysters at home.

Fun restaurant in a different part of town We went here for lunch; it's not a bad distance from our work in East LA. I've been wanting to go for a while, having heard that it serves authentic French food at reasonable prices. The menu was varied with usual French Bistro-style fare, but the ambiance was more gastro-pub or modern. They had a good range of wines by the glass. We ordered Croque Madame, which was solid, if not the best Croque Madame we had ever had. We also had the Bouillabaise. Again, perhaps not the best Bouillabaise of my life but a solid good job. The staff were friendly and generous (when an item was left off the bill and I pointed it out, they did not charge me). Parking here is an issue but there's a small lot across the street for $4 if you cannot find street parking. I wouldn't want to park too far away after dark in this very industrial neighborhood, though there are other bars and pubs on the street so there may be a surrounding of other people.

Deeeeeeelicious! I came here with my parents for my birthday and we had a lovely time. We came on a Sunday and one of us got the prefix menu (we all tasted and loved it), another one of us had the steak, and i had the macaroni and cheese with a side of green beans. Aside from the delicious food, the service was exceptional and the wine I had (a cap franc) was full bodied with an incredible flavor. I ordered some sort of chocolate coffee mousse for dessert and savored every bite. The ambiance is casual-dressy, the space is charming, and the staff is friendly. I can't wait to go back!

The location of this restaurant was great and the service was very attentive. Beautiful restaurant. However, I was slightly unimpressed with the food. The menu, for starters, was short, and the appetizer my dad ordered was really small. I ordered cocktail, which was not up to the mark as this place is famous for their cocktail. That being said, I simply enjoyed the experience.

I came here twice and the first time it was quite an experience I really enjoyed the atmosphere- the open kitchen and the light bulbs like lighting was visually satisfying ! my meal was decent - i like there flat bread with fruit- very refreshing! I tried there Creme brulee twice- first time was decent, second time was not to great- only because they had just finish making it so I guess the Sugar had not completely harden. I saw Absinthe written on the wall of the bar area and since Ive never tried it - the set up was really cute..the brought out this miniature Sink like nob which drips little drops of water on the sugar cube and then voila' I was very much intrigued and left decently buzzed =)

Disappointing French fair in Downtown LA. Looks nice on the outside but uncomfortable and unsatisfying on the inside. I have yet to meet someone who has experienced Church & State and actually enjoyed themselves. To be avoided!
