Excellent good food and service. Great French ambience. We will definitely be going again. It is so different from the normal run of restaurants of which there are too many now.
Great food, fantastic service and a lovely atmosphere. Waiters were attentive and helpful. Food was perfect and not over ambitious. Would strongly recommend to anyone and everyone.
We enjoyed the meal and the service was excellent. The waitress was charming and very attentive. The restaurant has a good ambiance and is reasonably priced.
The food and service at French Kitchen was really good. Great food, tasted amazing. The staff are really friendly and the restaurant has great decor
I cannot remember if one is high or low. I would rate the French Kitchen experience as in the second to the highest category. The restaurant was warm as was our welcome. It was festively decorated and the ambience was cosy. We chose from the prix fixe menu, which offered good value. The food was well served and of good quality, although I was disappointed by the less than succulent rillettes. However, the main course was excellent in taste and quantity. A very pleasant evening's dining.
The service was lovely and we were happy with the selection of food on offer. The starters were a bit small given their price - we had the foie gras and the blue cheese croquettes, which were both delicious, but not enough bread for the pate and only two very small croquettes. Both mains - the steak and the Ceasar salad - were tasty and just the right amount. The most disappointing was probably the dessert. We had the warm waffle, which did not feel fresh at all and it was a bit of a letdown. The atmosphere is bubbly and pleasant and we would be happy to go back, but probably only have the main course next time.
My sister and I both had delicious coq au vin, she started with pate and I had leek soup. All very good and all from the set menu which is limited to a choice of 3. Very good service and a reasonable bill. The only criticism I have, which I have quite often, it was busy so it was very noisy, probably because there are no soft furnishings at all. But we will definitely return.
Lovely to have French Kitchen locally for evenings like that - a group of old friends spending a very relaxed evening. Service was excellent, food good value - not haute cuisine but good French home-style cooking.
French Kitchen is a great place to eat. Good atmosphere. Lovely food. Great service. Well worth a visit for a relaxed evening out. Highly recommended.
Had an very enjoyable evening at French Kitchen with friends. The food was good, the staff were friendly and it had a good atmosphere, even on a Tuesday evening.
