    Watch Out for the Waiter Break

    I couldn't believe that our waitress took our order and proceeded to become invisible. We finished our entree, waited about 20 minutes, asked the hostess if the waitress fell ill and was told that she was on her break. In the meantime no one bussed our table, asked if we wanted dessert or acknowledged us in any way. I put a $2 tip on the check just to make sure that no one thought we had forgotten to leave the tip. I'm somewhat surprised that after putting all this info on the restaurant's comment card no one got back to us to try to apologize for their sloppy way of handling waiter breaks. Pity.

    Sometimes amazing

    After years of coming here I no longer do brunch because it's disappointing. I took someone here for a birthday dinner and we had a great time. The fish was seasoned well although I felt mine was undercooked for the type of white fish. I never had such cold brocoli rabe. The Lychee Champagne mimosa was great too. Beer and wines are always a treat here but they may not always have what you want as it varies. The late night 2am breakfast is way better than the overcrowded brunch service. And the french themed brunch options are a real disappointment.But Thank God the coffee is still dark and always good 24hours.

    Get A New Cook, Seriously

    We love the fact that the place stays open and is able to accomodate groups in different sizes... but the food is not good. Menu is decent but the food quality is poor!

    Not recommended

    The food is mediocre (flavorless onion soup, croque monsieur without white sauce) and the service is slow. The only thing going for it is its location. The fries are okay though.

    Never had a bad experience

    I don't eat out all that much but when I do, I either want to do one of 2 things: Try a new place and place my cards (or bills in this case) on the table. It is a risk. A Gamble. Other times, I want to go to a place that is solid, that I know well, and that always delivers the service for said "bills". French Roast is that place. We stopped in last night and as always, sat at the bar. I truly do not understand why anyone sits at a table. The bartenders were fantastic and fun and we adore MATUA (a great NZ Sauv Blanc). I had salmon and my gf the burger. Awesome. Just plain awesome. I love the food, the vibe, the people who plop down next to us. There is an openness to this place and as long as you go in with a smile, sans attitude, you will get exactly that in return (plus a good meal that won't burn your wallet). Love you French Roast. Keep on keepin' on.
