The soup was not very good. The cheese plate was excellent. The steak was good, but the frites were very cold.

Nice atmosphere but very small, crowded tables. Salads are tiny but good (they would be advised to add another 50 cents worth of lettuce to make $6-7 a good price.) Limited menu.

Had a great time. Drinks at the bar for happy hour with pleasant conversations with bartender and staff. A few items on the menu, we not available. My filet was a little overcooked for my liking but still very good flavor, asparagus was very tasty as well.

The wait staff was attentive and well-groomed. The food was unique and decadently flavorful.

The ambiance was authentically French, the decor was reminiscent of the 1930's or 1940's. The music was a mixture of French alternative and French Pop. The serving staff was courteous, well-groomed and attentive.

The menu was rather limited and we waited a long time for our meals. The salad was not split as requested and was brought at the same time as the entree. The ambiance was interesting, as we sat in what would be considered a home's front yard.

Extremely good steak and mussels dishes at reasonable prices; great service and pleasant outdoor dining

They were VERY busy and overbooked. Furthermore it was near 90 outside but because their doors & windows were open, it was hotter inside!

Pleasant, intimate setting, good food, attentive server

I called to make sure they would have vegan choices on the menu and was assured they had several....there were none. In spite of very small offerings the 2 of us that were veg had a very good ravioli dish ...the men said theirs was ok...really nice back patio and good server made up for menu issues. 2 of us have been here before when they first opened and had same issues with menu offerings and at that time horrific slow service. The web site does not even have a menu. Not a good way to run a restaurant business! We love the patio which figures predominantly into choosing restaurants in the summertime.

Bon Vivant is an amazing transformation from the restaurant that was previously there. Beautiful entryway and plenty of fun outdoor seating. The food was very delicious. My husband really enjoyed the Paris burger with frites (fries). The salmon I ordered was very tasty, and it was a very generous piece of salmon. I did wish I had more of the cauliflower puree and less salmon, but that is my preference. We had a lovely time and would recommend it as a great date spot.

Our omelets at brunch were a little overcooked, but everything else was so good that we didn't mind.
6/3/2013 10:02:09 PM
food was great, staff was great. all around pleasant dining time.

The server was very attentive to us, but the food just took long before it got served. The food was alright, but nothing special.

my omlette was burned and the french toast was tasteless. But presentation was exceptional. Fruit salad was good.
5/26/2013 12:10:42 PM
service very slow they ran out of bacon and brussel sprouts. we recieved very small portions while the people next to use where 2x the size. hmmm

I cannot believe this restaurant even has open tables on Friday and Saturday night. The food, atmosphere, and company where amazing. I am taking my sister back there this Friday night! I loved the Parisian vibe. Great music. Heard the brunch is amazing, too!

Service was great. Cheese plate was wonderful. Our main course was fair, not very French, overly salted.

The outside Patio was lovely. Not so much the food. The Coq au Vin was dry and tasteless, the Mushroom in philo dough was also lacking in any real flavors.
5/2/2013 4:14:57 PM
Scallops were the best I have ever eaten.
Flank steak very juicy and tender. Disappointed
The Coq au vin was all sold out apparently due to
Unexpected influx of customers on a Saturday. Best not to go there very late at night in order to get more
Available selections. Next time will go before movie rather than later!

We really enjoyed the food. My wife is vegan and they had plenty of options for her. Food was very flavorful. You could tell a lot of thought went into the cooking and preparation of the food.

Bon Vivant is a quaint little restaurant. It feel's like your dining as a guest in someone's home--although it was a bit drafty. The server was friendly, but not exceptional. She served one of the members of our party the wrong dish. Although she decided to keep the dish, the server did not offer to knock a little off of our check for her mistake. Also, another member of our party ordered steak, and specifically asked that they cooked it well-done. When he received it, it was medium rare! They had to re-cook it. I ordered the lobster tails. The lobster was well cooked and flavorful, but very small. It appeared as though it was cooked from frozen. For the price, I would have expected fresh lobster--I felt jipped. I had a larger portion of cabbage and potatoes (bubble and squeak) on my plate. However, the lamb meatball appetizer was delicious. My Manhattan cocktail, although expensive, was also very good.
