5 stars all the way. The French Table is a dining experience everyone should enjoy.
I have a a slight crush on Gilles our waiter. He’s sweet, professional, funny and ever so charming. A real delight! He does his job with such ease he makes the whole dining experience that much more wonderful.
Tonight they had a set menu for Valentines. Initially I was a little disappointed but soon got over it when I saw my appetizer arrive.
I had the salt spring mussels and clams.
Wow, they were much more than I expected. Smoky and rich on top of a toasted piece of bread. I ate it as slow as I could.
For the main I had lamb done three ways, with a white bean ragoût. The lamb chop wa so tender it just melted in my mouth…it was incredible.
The lamb confit in phyllo pastry was nothing I’ve tasted before. The shredded lamb was rich with flavour while the pastry was crisp.
Dessert was a spinach cake with sweet layers of what seemed like jam. It was delicate and flavourful.
This restaurant is perfect for special occasions or just for a romantic night out. They do not have loud blaring music or an obnoxious TV.
After many visits, I’ve now decided that this restaurant is my favorite, hands down. I was so sad when it was all over.
I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for graciously providing us with a lovely dining experience last week. Jean and I had an outstanding lunch and felt very taken care of by you and Matthew. The other ladies were delighted to hear all about it and everyone looks forward to visiting The French Table again very soon!
We dined at your restaurant tonight for the first time and it was absolutely amazing! The food, the wine, the service, all excellent! I checked out your videos online beforehand and I really enjoyed the Aligoté wine which is from your family estate. The Kir Royal . . . wow! So incredible. We look forward to dining at your fine establishment in the future.

The French Table is a nice change from all the casual and hipster restaurants on Main. The atmosphere is upscale and elegant, but unpretentious and welcoming. I’ve been here for dinner and brunch, and all the food has been wonderful. Luckily for me, they always have some great vegetarian options on the the menu. This isn’t always the case for french restaurants, so I appreciate that.
I look forward to my next visit!
