Charming spot in a strip mall offering French classics plus wines & absinthe with patio seating.- Google
"Caramel sauce, ice cream and a raspberry garnished with mint leaf."

L’Eiffel Bistrot & Creperie South Barrington, Il – 2/16/2016 This is my second time at this restaurant… Having enjoyed a wonderful meal last time I decided that since I was in town I would return… As you walk in the first you hear is the French music of Charles Trenét playing in the background setting the stage for what undoubtedly will be a fabulous dining experience. . . Louis Charles Auguste Claude Trenet, known as Charles Trenet, was a French singer and songwriter. He was most famous for his recordings from the late 1930s until the mid-1950s, though his career continued through the 1990s. Wikipedia Warmly greeted by the maître d’ I was immediately escorted to my table… My server brought out warmed French rolls served with tapenade… Tapenade is a Provençal dish consisting of puréed or finely chopped olives, capers, anchovies and olive oil. To cleanse the palate in preparation for the main event… A goat cheese salad consisting of mixed field greens, perfectly sliced apples and a breaded and fried round of goat cheese. All this dressed in a raspberry vinaigrette. Makes me want to learn French just to be able to tell the chef exactly how wonderful the salad was… And for my main course this evening… the Dover Sole Almandine “fillet tableside” served with almonds, lemon butter and root vegetables… The mix this evening…baby carrots, turnips and green beans… and to complete the plating, a round of couscous garnished with a sprig of parsley, micro greens and a carved lemon half… The tableside filleting of a Dover Sole something you should experience at least once in your life. My server became visibly nervous at the revelation that thousands of people would be viewing the procedure… No fine dining experience would be complete without the desert… This evening’s selection along with my signature cappuccino will be at the Tarte Tatin, an upside down pastry filled with caramelized apples which is then baked to perfection… as with the other dishes…, the presentation is something to behold… Caramel sauce, ice cream and a raspberry garnished with mint leaf… Simply spectacular!

From the moment we walked in, they didn't seem to care. Our server changed twice and the one the was supposed to wait on us, didn't. Food was cold and horrible. Didn't get what we asked for. No manager on duty. Place was a wreck. Other tables around us seem to be fine, but that is because they had an experienced server or someone who knew how to do her job. The other ones, didn't seem like they know what they were doing or didn't want to be there.

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.
