My husband and I are long time fans of Gourmandise. We have loved the atmosphere, the service and most especially the food and pastries. It makes me so sad that our last three visits here have been less than we are used to. The pastries in particular are not as good as they used to be, it seems like they are cutting corners with fillings that leave a bad aftertaste (Mille Fois). The tomatoes in my salad were absolutely mushy, as were my husbands. The quiche was oily. The restaurant itself was not as clean as it used to be with food splattered on the wall and dust on the windowsills. Also, my water glass, my lunch plate and my knife were all either visibly dirty or had hair on them. I'm giving them 3 stars because our waitress Elena, who has waited on us several times, was efficient, accommodating, and so sweet. I did see a waiter spill quite a bit out of a glass of milk for the next table, he looked to see if anyone at that table had noticed (they had not). He wiped the milk off the outside of the glass with his hairy arm and served it!

I work downtown, and this place is a little outside my normal lunchtime exploration radius. I was delighted when a friend introduced me, and I have since introduced several of my coworkers. The lunchtime environment is busy, but I've never had trouble finding a seat right away. I've tried several sandwiches, and my favorite was the French Dip--I highly recommend it! The lunch portions here are just right, leaving me pleasantly full, but not groggy for the afternoon. While the pastries might fall a little short of "authentic," they are quite delicious, and it's hard to resist them.

I have been here a few times. While I haven't tried many of the non-dessert items, the desserts are very tasty. I've had some of the cakes and chocolates, most of which were above average in taste. I really enjoyed the porcupine, which consisted of a chocolate cake, mousse, raspberry filling covered in dark chocolate with nuts.

We usually loved going to Gourmandise for lunch. But, by all means DO NOT go there for dinner. I asked the waitress what her favorite meal was and she told me the tri-tip with fingerling potatoes. When my meal got there I noticed immediately that the supposed "tri-tip" looked like a slab of Arby's processed meat and it even had that greenish/multi-color sheen to it that old meat has. It was so tough I had to saw through it using a sharp steak knife, which means it was not actually tri-tip. The sauce also looked like grey vomit with chunks of blue cheese in it (sorry for that visual). After pushing the meat around on my plate the waitress asked me if I liked the meal and I said "no". She then responded, "Oh, really? Well, it's my favorite." She then walked away without offering to make it right. We ended up getting some pastries, hoping to make up for the horrible dinner. Nope. We got home and tried their croissant bread pudding, which could be compared to a hard brick-very dry and flavorless. The macarons' consistency were also completely off, they had an almost soft bready texture?! So bizarre. I am hoping they just had a bad cook that night but who knows...We will look to spend our money elsewhere in the future. Les Madelines is pretty good if you are looking for authentic (edible) French food.

I am french and met the Chef who gave me and and my friend a free desert. They also did a great job on the large platter we ordered for our wedding in August 2015. It seriously taste like in France! I would HIGHLY recommend the Pailletin!!! the raspberry tarts, and the Millefeuille (the regular one)! you won't regret it!

I love having lunch at Gourmandise. I'm particularly fond of their lox and bagel and French dip sandwiches. I've never been when it hasn't been busy, but service has always been fast and accommodating. The gluten free chocolate cake is as moist and delicious as the most gluten filled cake you can find.

I've only been here on a few occasions. Though a little over priced the bread is phenomenal, and authentic. The pastries that I've had have been very good, Eclair is definitely one of the best I've ever had. I have always tried they're french dip "toasted" as they say, but it really was almost unbearable to eat. It had a strange bitter burned taste to it. And the meat was rather stingy. However I am very willing to try other things on their menu. the waiters have never been terribly nice, or memorable. But out of the 2 times I've bought pastries from the counter the ladies helping me have been VERY VERY nice. That's honestly why I'm giving 4 stars. I remember one was shorter and had dark hair. Young. Very nice, and that ultimately is the different between 2 stars and 4 for me.
