My wife and I had a most enjoyable dinner at Beaujolais last night.

Its ambience is charming and very typical of bistros in France.

It's casual without being too casual, and upscale without feeling stuffy.

The place is popular so expect to wait a bit for a table during peak times.

Regrettably there is a lot of hard surfaces inside, including a cement floor, which can make it a bit on the loud side.

However, if you're looking for thoughtfully prepared and authentic French cuisine, served in an intimate communal-style room that exudes a lively energy, then Beaujolais is an excellent fit.

The wait staff were friendly, attentive and French.

A word to the wise: The French generally dine at a much more leisurely pace than Americans, especially during dinner, so expect your food to take a bit longer to arrive than you are likely accustomed to... You will find that it is well worth the wait.

Also, don't expect your food to come out looking like an Applebees platter. The presentation will be elegant and pleasant, but not flashy. Their fare is authentic French, not "Americanized" French.

The food itself is delicious... and for the moderate price charged, represents a real bargain.

The French onion soup is simply amazing.

You can't go wrong with their signature dish: fillet of halibut in champagne sauce with Parmesan crust.

Although we did not have room for desert they do look incredible; and judging from the number of diners that ordered them they are obviously very popular.

Overall we enjoyed a great meal, for a reasonable price, in a very pleasant atmosphere.

The only reason I can't give Beaujolais five stars is due to its somewhat high noise levels.

Bon appetit!

The food is amazing. Every dish I've ever had was either very good or simply mouth watering, especially the filet mignon (about $22). I've had steaks for three times the price that are not as good as the filet. The deserts are simply scrumptous, especially the fruit tarts (about $6). I would come here if the prices were twice what they are.

The atmosphere is simple and unprententious. You feel like you've escaped to some small out of the way Parisian cafe. The service is "slow": if you want to eat and run, you'll feel stressed. In Europe (and Cafe B.) the idea is to relax, enjoy a course, and then have a few minutes to chat before the next course arrives. My wife and I typically spend 1 1/2 to 2 hours for a dinner there, which is perfect for us.

Cafe B. is my favorite restaurant. I have been there maybe 15 times since discovering it a couple of years ago. I would be happy to come every week. It has become a favorite for anyone we've ever brought with us. I always look forward to going there and I am always quite content by the end of my visit.

In short: I come for the amazing food, but the ambience and the interactions with the waiters add to the enjoyment of the experience. Just don't come if you're in a hurry.

My husband and I love this restaurant. We frequent it even though we're not Eagle Rock residents. It's casual, the food is good, the waiters are friendly and efficient. We have brought a lot of our friends here and we plan to bring more soon. I recommend this restaurant. It's simple French country food and not at all pretentious. As a mater of fact I think I'm eating dinner there again this Friday :) And don't mind the bad reviews at the bottom of this page. You should try this place. Find out for yourself. You won't be disappointed. And who knows, maybe those bad reviews come from competitors...

We are going to this place since a year and never had a bad expeince, the decoration and the atmosphere are just like those little French Cafe place in Paris that i miss so much.
The food is also delicious and the owner and the staff are very friendly, i was disappointed to read some bad comments about that place but i guess that those come from people who usually like more coke and pop corn than a fine dinner. W e will come aain and again as long as the place will be like it....

Just addicted to it!!!!!

It's a great kept secret and one of my favorite french restaurants. If you need an eat-and-go dinner, which many americans are accustomed to, (like entrees in less than 20 mins after order is placed) then this is not the place for you. If you are still in love with your wife, or with a gaggle of chicks and want to gab over some delicious wine, this is your place. Food is authentic and bistro-like, not 5 star over-the-top elegance. Again, go somewhere else if that's your impression of french food. This place is how your average frenchy eats---think "Cheescake Factory" of Paris, but more intimate, better food, and a smaller menu. The wine list is adequate--you won't get Lafite Rothchild 1982 in here, but it will be good and reasonable. Totally reasonable. Oh, and if you hate hot waiters with french accents then this is definitely not your place. -xo to all you lovelies, Blair

Pros: Good food, good choices, romantic

Cons: parking, not for children

I live down the street, so I frequent this place often. The staff run a tight ship and are very friendly and professional. The food is incredible -- perfectly cooked steaks, yummy side dishes, and all the cheesy buttery goodness you can handle.

Good ambiance inside. Not too casual, not too formal, good lighting and atmosphere all around.

I highly recommend this joint if you're in the Eagle Rock area and want to have your palate sing.

My folks live nearby and have long recommended we try Beaujolais, so we did last night. A Wednesday night, we were easily seated even without a reservation. The front room was large and already boisterous by 7:15, but we were ushered into a smaller back room, and drink orders were quickly taken. The service was efficient and quite friendly. The restaurant is truly typically French, the decor is sort of faux rustic bistro, complete with framed commercial posters, but the ambience was really animated and active, without being so loud you couldn't carry on a pleasant conversation.

The food was very good. Not the most spectacular, nothing remotely flashy about it, but it will remind many of a fine meal in a boite they ate way back when. I had the escargot, my wife a green salad -both, excellent, and, again, typically French, swimming in garlic. Our entree were steak frites and duck breast in a very, very good sauce. We shared a nice creme brulee for dessert. The service was leisurely, but we were done with the entire meal in 2 hours, which gave us tim to chat, and never feel like we were neglected. The entire meal was less than $100- quite a bargain!!

If we lived here, we would be regulars. If you enjoy good French food, a bit nostalgic, but not hackneyed, and a convivial room, you'll have a delightful evening.

Cons: Parking is not really bad, but maybe on weekends

I read some of the reviews here and was pretty disappointed that people have had a bad experience (or at least claim to have had a bad experience at CB). I have lived in Eagle Rock since 1999 (many days before it was trendy and before anyone even knew Cafe Beaujolais even existed). The waiters at Cafe B are dolls! Although I live close by, I have only been to CB perhaps a total of 6 times over the past year (there are so many options with Pasadena, Burbank and Glendale a hop, skip and jump away). Anyhow, in just those 8 times, the waiters know me by sight; they are always warm, seat me (and my friends) promptly; they are very attentive, gentle in their speech and I've never had a bad experience (even when I was a newbee).

I will say that the service can be a bit slow but part of that is cultural (French culture--all the staff are native Frenchmen). Understand that the French consider each meal (esp. dinner) a special event. It's a time for people to relax, linger over deep conversation, fully enjoy your food and be "in the moment."

Sadly, we Americans tend to always be in a rush which makes us inpatient and makes "us" seem rude. So, the next time you wonder why "you" had a bad experience at a place where most others have had a positive one, before you cut people down, think 1. Either it was a bad night. Let me try it again before I confirm this place is a wreck. Or, 2. Perhaps I'm the A-hole and I just don't see it. People are treating me the way I treat them. Hmmmm...now there's a thought.

All -- Try this beautiful little country-style restaurant before believing some of the very negative views of some folks. People are generally nice if you are nice to them.

Pros: Wonderful servers, genuine French experience, nice ambiance, great food and decent wine list

Cons: Parking, it does get hot in this place (no air conditioning) and it can be very busy

To this day, I have never encountered such arrogance from French waiters until we dined at this Cafe. I have studied in France for more than 10 years. Had never had any bad experience at any restaurant. I have heard many, many, bad stories about French waiters, especially from Cafe Beaujolais. I wanted to give it a try if its really true from what I heard. The food from this place, to be honest, is pretty good, even though it took very long to come to our table. The tiny room has a decent decor, but it was very warm. I was having an OK meal, until I ordered my Espresso. The waiter brought my beverage without ever asking if I needed sugar or cream. I had to wait more than ten minutes before some waiter payed attention. I asked the waiter," Can I have sugar? " He answered ," If you say PLEASE, maybe!!!!!!!! " Boy! I'm not coming here to beg for free food. I payed full price for food which tastes OK. What does that waiter think he is? My Mama?! I have to say please to him! Come On! Don't I have to pay tips !? That's what the waiter is here for , to help customers and to earn tips. I thought a good tip at the end would have taken care of everything. at the time he wanted me to say please, a tip of one penny was what he deserved. I WAS VERY PISSSSD!

The food's okay, it ranges from an unfortunate mayonaissey, out of season salad to a nice salmon plate. The difficulty I have with this restaurant is the customer service. Come on guys, relax. We get that you work out a lot and that your FRENCH. Noted, box checked, read you loud and clear.

This cafe proves true to the French stereotype and gives all my French friends a bad reputation. The servers were so rude! My girlfriends and I were there early to secure a table before the mad dinner rush. The server kept moving us around and rudely pointed out that we were over our time limit...What? SORRY TO BE SO DUMB that I didn't realize we had to inhale our food and leave to make way for others who decided to come during the dinner rush. Then dinner turned to be good, not great but good. But the time we ate the taste in our mouth has already taken a turn for the worse...

A bad beginning to a nice weekend.
After moving to another table to get away from kids who wouldn't settle down near us, we then had to wait 35 minutes for our entrees (NY steak and lamb).
The baguette, lobser bisque, and Syrah Grenache might have made the wait easier if they had had more taste. And the entrees themselves might have made the wait worth it if they had had more flavor.
Instead, we were rewarded for our wait by being told by a haughty French waiter that if we didn't want to wait, we should try Tommy's hamburger joint down the street.
Next time we will.

First of all it reminds me of a restaurant i had prevously visited when i went to France last year. PERSONALLY...I understand why all of you "Americans" do complain about the S-L-O-W- service.. It's not that they are slow they are letting you enjoy your company, letting you enjoy your food and environment. Must someone wait on your every hand and foot? Some people should get to know what real provincial French food and Service are like then complain. I had a great time with friends at this restaurant it is always a favorite. They have great food. Moderately priced. Great deserts. Great handsome waiters;). A good place to go out with friends or good company.

We had a group of six seated promptly on a Friday evening at 7:00. That, and the occasional visual thrill of being served by members of a French rugby team was the best part of our evening at Cafe Beaujolais. We worked through appetizers that seemed to be assembled directly out of packages from Trader Joes (mediocre pate, boursin cheese). The salads that were built around tomatoes that were out of season and mealy. A soup of the day that was described by our waiter as celery soup, arrived as a cream of brocolli. When we informed the server that we ordered celery soup, his flat response was "It's broccolli- what do you want to do about it" We held out hopes for the entrees, since the place kept filing up, we figured that there must be more going on than our appetizers and the service were letting on.

While the duck was cooked and served nicely, our 4 beef entrees were all mild disappointments, and a steak with frites had the texture of boiled meat. Except for the boiled like meat, the other entrees would have been half decent bistro fare. But the prices ($18-24) for what was offered, and the service which served up swagger but little customer service came up short. Plainly put, for the price, it sucked!

Cons: more swagger than service or knowledge of the menu- food was consistently mediocre.

Oh no!!! We have frequented (and loved) this restaurant since the very beginning. After a somewhat prolonged accidental absence, we recently returned to find, sadly, that everything has changed. To sum it up, they super-sized it. All of the portions are two or three times larger than they once were, and the quality has declined in inverse proportion to the size of the servings. The starter salad was for years my favorite simple salad in town, because it was just greens, dressed in fantastic olive oil. Now it is a massive pile, overdressed in flavorless vinaigrette, garnished with huge wedges of tasteless tomatoes and an inexplicable orange wheel. We were not offered pepper and I understand, because it would not have helped. The same goes for the rest of the menu...I was part of a party of eight and thus got to taste nearly everything on the menu...and overall: blah. If we wanted huge, bland portions we could eat at IHOP. The service, which used to be so attentive, was lousy. The staff can no longer be bothered to refill water, so bottles of room-temperature water for you to refill your own glass are provided...good luck getting a refill once those are empty. Our food arrived at different times and a few orders were mixed up with another table. Saddest of all were the desserts...the once delicate profiteroles are now mushy, huge and tasteless. I honestly believe they may have been pre-packaged and garnished with a squirt of canned whipped cream and Hershey's syrup. SO SAD!!! The apple tart was also massive and bland. What a disappointment after so many years of excellent food and service. The prices are still reasonable, which was the only consolation. However, we will not be returning. A shame.

Pros: a good spot to take your older relatives who are afraid of French food

Cons: an unlikely place to learn to LIKE French food

My husband love going to Cafe Beaujolais for special occasions. The other night we went for our 20th anniversary, and it was perfect. The French waiters were attentive, the food arrived quickly, and it all tasted fantastique! At one point the waiter gently scolded my husband for not touching his spinach flan, so he took a taste and discovered that he loved it. My favorite dish was the chocolate mousse. It was served in a wine glass with fresh whipped cream on top. It was so thick that I couldn't finish it, but the waiter was happy to put it in a box for me to take home.

Cons: Somewhat pricey

We heard good things about this place from friends. We went with high expectations. It was busy when we ordered appetizers and entrees. The appetizers arrived in a decent amount of time, but after we finished them nothing else arrived. We waited patiently until it the restaurant started to empty out and it became obvious that absolutely nothing was happening in the kitchen. We concluded that our waiter had forgotten to place the rest of our order. So we politely asked that they cancel the rest of our order if they hadn't started it. The waiter became indignant and haughty, and loudly scolded "This is not an Italian restaurant!" We still haven't figured that one out, but we won't be going back to find out.

After reading all the great reviews, I had pretty high expectations. The food was good, but not the best by any means. All in all it was a nice experience, with some decent French country food. My complaint is that the dishes were too sauce-y, I had the halibut which tasted OK but the entire plate was sitting in a soup of sauce, also the potatoes were cold. My husband had the fillet mignon. It was a nice cut of meat, but again sitting in a sauce soup that tasted more like a Chinese sauce than anything remotely French. The duck pate was decent and kudos to the Creme Brule, it was the best part of the meal. I agree with other reviews about the plating, it could be better, also the china and cutlery were really cheap, and that always bothers me. Lastly, the service was s-l-o-w. I would go there again, but If I you hungry for excellent French cuisine, then I would go to Figaro in Los Feliz or Bistro K in South Pasadena. A final note, the waiters were friendly, attractive French men, so that alone may be worth the trip.

This is one not to miss. I fnally got over to Cafe Beaujolais after wanting to try it for some time. WHAT A FOOL I'VE BEEN. I should have tried this much sooner! Great food! Small place, nice ambience, and great food. For a French restaurant, very reasonably priced. I spent about $55.00 for two entrees and desserts (did not have wine this time). The halibut was excellent, well prepared with a wonderful sauce. My date had the duck. Now duck can often be dry, but not at Cafe Beaujolais! What a wonderful meal. Best duck I've ever had with a subtle sauce with smoky hints of berry. Fabulous! Just one word of advice: GO!!

My husband and I recently visited Cafe Beaujolais on a whim because I was 4 months pregnant and had a SERIOUS craving for some GOOD French food!

Being raised within the French culture, I consider myself to be quite picky. But, one taste of the Escargot, I was sent to heaven! The waiters of course are not your run of the mill "Rude Frenchmen" on the contrary! They're very nice, accommodating and polite! This is by far my favorite spot and have hooked a lot of my friends. I do not live in Los Angeles and my husband and I drive 45 minutes happily to this wonderful restaurant and know that we?d drive farther just for the cuisine and the wonderful service!

This little restaurant serves some of the best French food ever! My friend's took me there for my birthday and I had a fabulous time! The waiters were all French with the greatest sense of humor! I loved the ambience and the service! We showed up without a reservation (calling within 15 minutes doesn't really constitute a reservation...especially after they tell you on the phone that they have no reservations available), but our waiter was so funny and gracious that he set up a sidewalk table for our party of 8! Talk about improvising! The food was fabulous! We had the salad, escargot and of course lots of wine! The desserts were a perfect ending to a fantastic meal and the waiters with their authentic accents and quirky sense of humor made the night one of my most memorable! Do visit..just make sure you have reservations though!

Ok, I'm not sure what French waiters some of these reviewers are referring to, but the waiters at Cafe Beaujolais are exactly what you'd expect....they are full of snippy attitude, and quite honestly, this is part of the enjoyment of the entire experience, and one of the reasons that I continue going back. I love it! Their parmesan encrusted halibut in champagne sauce is divine, salads and escargot never disappoint, and they always recommend (don't you DARE order merlot, you filthy american) a wonderful wine upon request.

These guys are overturning the stereotype of French being rude. They are friendly and fast. The food is amazing and vegetarian friendly (the salads and soup du jur are always delicious). If you want delicious French food in a pleasant atmosphere served to you by an always pleasant staff - you must check it out. My three tries at Dusty's (three strikes) really made me appreciate these guys all the more.

I have been going here for years and it never disappoints! The food, the atmosphere and the wine are magnificant! I love the escargot, the halibut (that sauce!), the bread, the creme' brulee, everything I have tried has been tasty and worth every cent. The waiters are French and pretty damn good to look at as well. As John Christoff to sing Happy Birthday if you are there for a celebration. Great romantic place for a anniversary or a birthday. I always feel special there. The best French food in LA!

This is one of the very few french restuarants in the US that actually is french! The tables are right next to each other but somehow you feel like your the only table in there. The food is amazing and no bringing the next plate before the first is finished. If you enjoy the good food and a relaxed slow meal that you can savor try this place! They know their wine too so ask the waiters their opinion, I've never been dissappointed here. On busy nights you should make a reservation.

If your looking for the typical french attitude than this is your place. The manager actually threw me and my friends out for ordering dessert only. He said with his little french accent that if we're looking for dessert only we should go to some place else. I had their dinner and dessert before and received the same kind of underminding attitude but not in this fashion. I would boycott this place entirely, the food isn't even that great. You can find much better places on Colorado where service and the food is magnificent. AVOID THIS RESTAURANT.

I went here for my birthday months ago and still savor the memory. When we went there was no corkage fee, so bring your own wine with no problems! The food was delicious and the atmosphere romantic but spacious and comfortable. Just the booths are a little uncomfortable, try to get a pillow.

This is my new favorite restaurant in the LA area - I've been back at least 5 times because it's just so darn good! I've ordered multiple items from the menu, and I've tasted from other people's plates. EVERYTHING is just divine! I've had salmon, lamb chops, salads, soups. The steaks are really the best though. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

Oh. My. Goodness. My husband I I had just returned from our honeymoon in Paris and were dying for more French food. Who would have thought it was right down the street from our home? The waiters are all native French speakers and the food rivals that of the best Parisian restaurants. Another plus - it's that nice unrushed French dining experience. You are encouraged to linger over your meal. We dressed up, but there were diners in jeans as well. Reservations recommended.

I was totally impressed to find this little hidden gem in Eagle Rock! The food is excellent, the price is reasonable, the service is good, yet the ambiance is relaxing. I felt like I was in Paris! Two dishes to try: Escargot and Lamb Chop! No regrets!

It was supposed to be a special night with my girlfriend. Food was good, but we were served by three different waiters, and everything was slow. Had to ask for things each step of the way, never knowing who our waiter really was. Tried to get our check and had to get half out of my chair and wave, and the waiters still blew by us. Finally had to ask the bartender for our check. Still nothing. Sucks to try having a special night and leave frustrated.

We were quickly seated on a busy night with a jazz band playing smoothly. The service was warm and friendly, without that snooty attitude you expect from a French cafe with such good food. The only drawback was the lack of a decent beer selection for my non-wine drinking friend, but that's not what most people go to a French restaurant for. The food came out in a reasonable time for a busy place with an elegent, yet simple presentation. I enjoyed the duck in a berry sauce, sweet and savory perfection. We spent about $80 for two with wine, appetizers, and an excellent meal of duck and fillet mingon, followed by creme brule. Anyone who appreciates a fine meal in a more casual environment will love it.

So much better than 1 1/2 years ago. My partner and I ate here tonight. I had the rabbit; he, the lamb chops. Both were just excellent. The food was served hot and so delicious. The starter soup of asparagus was very good --- not too salty. We shared the delicious banana tart with ice crm for dessert. Service was attentive and even. The chef is the same as the last visit, but he sure got it together this evening.

Classic French restaurant experience. The food is great. I can enthusiastically recommend everything on the menu. The desserts are even better. The staff put the experience over the top. They are friendly, interact with you and maintain superb service.

I strongly recommend reservations. Seating is limited and meals are not short, so if you end up waiting it could be a while.

I was recommended to this restaurant by my French teacher. It has rarely disappointed. The waiters are very good, and the cuisine is authentic. Not a fussy gourmet restaurant, but good, "real" food. The regular menu is augmented by the daily specials as well as a wine special. The waiters can serve you as though you were in France or move you quickly through the dinner - just let them know what is your preference.
The Whitefish special with mushroom risotto was exceptional. The duck in lavender honey was tasty. I also love the lamb stew that has been on the daily special menu. I usually start with the endive salad with walnuts and roquefort, but the escargot is also worthwhile.

This place is a well kept secret and I'm hesitant to write anything for fear everyone will come here and I won't be able to get a table. But my love for sharing good news makes me tell you.....this is French food at its finest. With sauces prepared with the right balance of herbs, meats are gorgeous, the fish is marvelous. etc etc. I have been to many gourmet restaurants on the fancier side of town and walked away shaking my head. They just don't compare to our neighborhood French cafe in Eagle Rock.
Truly amazing.
Oh, I read someone's negative comments and can only say, maybe a waiter was having a bad night. I've been here a few times and had exceptional service each time. If you get a choice and you want privacy, ask for a table in the back area.
Leave room for dessert.

Maybe we were there on an off night. But the food took forever to get to our table, we had to keep asking the waiter when is was coming (who never apologized for the delay), and when it did come wasn't cooked as we had asked and was really only just ok. Over the course of the dinner waiter never came to check on how we were doing, or to see if we wanted more wine. Very disappointing service.

Eagle Rock has seen some changes over the last few years. One of which is the addition of new and varied restaurants on Colorado Blvd. Cafe Beaujolais brings a touch of France to this neighborhood without the stereotypical "snooty" atmosphere of upscale places. The entrees are savory and tantalizing, but the desserts are stunning in their simplicity and flavor. For those who fear the image of French haute cuisine, this is an excellent place to start. They have weekly jazz nights, too.
