La Bonne Soupe

This is certainly a very authentic french bistro. Great (and simple) food, no matter what you order. The prices are pretty good, particularly for lunch. Very nice!

La Bonne Soupe has great French Country style decor and is perfect for a date or just hanging out with friends and family. The food is absolutely delicious (and a steal for that matter) and the waitstaff is very friendly. I would reccomend this restaurant to everyone.

I've been there several times already, and it's consistently lovely. The salads have a delicious "sauce moutarde" dressing, the crepes on Tuesday are really good, and the onion soup is to die for! The table have this pic-nic look to them, and on the wall there's Caribbean art. Very nice with friends.

The food seems like genuine french food; you'll see that most of the patrons are european tourists. The onion soup is a must; its savory broth, flavorful onions and delicately melted gruyere are euphoric! I go there almost every week to get the soup! Sometimes, with a side of mimosa, but I've had better ones elsewhere. Highly recommended.

We go to La Bonne Soupe every time that we go to City Center & to movie screenings. We always have a tasty meal, & the staff get us out in time. The specials are a great value & really great. We love the crepes! We go here every other week.

My girlfriend and I go to La Bonne Soupe at least twice a month. The fondue is tasty, the soup is a great deal (for $15 you get an entire meal--salad, a soup entree, dessert, and a glass of wine), and the tomato soup is excellent even though we don't normally like tomato soup! I'm also a huge fan of quiche lorraine, and after trying the quiche lorraine at several restaurants in the city, I'm pretty sure La Bonne Soupe's is the best. It can be difficult to get a table on a Friday or Saturday night, and reservations aren't really customary, so do yourself a favor and go on a more sensible night.

I took 6 friends from around the country to this highly recommended restaurant. I had heard about it over and over on Arthur's radio show. Well, I guess it was just because they were sponsors because I was disappointed. We had a reservation and still had to wait almost 30 minutes in a very crowded doorway. Since we were so rushed we ordered the special, decent but nothing special. One ordered a steak frites and said it was poor, not like France at all. To be fair, the service was friendly, and they substitued strawberries for dessert when asked, but I don't think I'd go back again -- ok, maybe if I had lots of time and we ordered the fondue.
