Charming spot in a strip mall offering French classics plus wines & absinthe with patio seating.- Google
"Great atmosphere, very good food and wonderful crepe deserts."
"Very salty, mashed potatos very gummy, pancetta very fatty and rubbery."

Just stopped off for a light lunch in this bistro, which we have been meaning to try out for a few months now. It was fairly quiet when we walked in, but we were kept waiting for a few minutes while a reservation was entered into the computer system. Ok. Our server seemed nice enough. I ordered a Croque Madame sandwich; something I have ordered on several occasions in France. The food arrived quickly, and the undercooked egg on top of the sandwich concerned me, but I didn't say anything and pushed the raw parts off the sandwich. Once I started eating, however, the overpowering taste of dijon mustard overtook everything else. Yuck. I put my cutlery down as I simply couldn't stomach another bite. The server did come and ask if I wanted another, but honestly, my stomach was still kind of churning from the undercooked egg and mustard. The 1 star review is because we were charged the full $12 for a sandwich I barely touched. We should at least have been offered a discount for that item. The menu did not mention the mustard, or I would have ordered it without. Not a good experience and I certainly wouldn't recommend the restaurant to anybody.

From the very moment I walked in the door and the hostess was incredibly rude, I was glad I was there for the cuisine and not for the customer service. The hostess was rude once again when I asked about our reservation, 15 minutes later... The food was good, yet it took about a half hour to an hour for each course to be delivered after it was placed. I can't say I was impressed with the special "sweetbreads"... very salty, mashed potatos very gummy, pancetta very fatty and rubbery. Won't be returning!

Once you get past the slightly odd menu and the elevated prices, L'Eiffel Bistrot & Crêperie is not a bad choice. The food is actually better than the 21 rating would suggest. We usually go a lunch time and sit at the bar. The patio is nice in summer.
