We visited this restaurant third time. May be it is a good thing that menu has not changed ( small variations of the same ). Friendly and experienced waiting staff. Food is above neighborhood average. Certain dishes deserved 5 stars. Overall it was very pleasant experience in a dynamic friendly place with a very good food and deserts. Very good... More

This was the worst experience I have had from start to finish I think in my whole life. I made the reservations weeks ago for Valentine's Day. I received a called that day confirming our reservation and also by the way tonight's dinner is prix fixe at $95/person. Okay I guess unexpected but what are our options? I asked that... More

Reviewing the restaurant as a "Bistro," aspiring to very good food with a warm and inviting atmosphere and experience that helps you remember your times in Paris- Background- We have been here maybe 8 times over a 10-yr span. On some visits we had seen a decline in food quality (but price increase) that made us hesitate to go back-... More

A LA MAISON is located no more than 10 minutes from my house but despite this , I had been there no more than 2 times in the ?8 yers it has been at this location. THat will definitely change based on the recent dinner there with a good friend. Appropriately French /Parisian atmosphere, there really is not a bad... More

My recent visit was a true letdown. I ordered the special for the night, which was $38. The portion was unusually small. I have to say that the wait staff was great. However, this does not compensate for receiving an appetizer size dinner entree. I decided to call; the owner happened to answer and said that he'd send me a... More

The restaurant is in a odd place and you might not think it looks like much but the food is great. It is also a BYOB. I think this restaurant is also great for lunch.

I've eaten many meals at this venue, never a bad or poorly prepared entree. Their paella is one of my favorites, other dishes very good. When not busy the service is excellent and the quietness perfect for a business type meeting or discussion. I've tasted companions selections and yet to find one I wouldn't have liked.

A great BYOB. We had an excellent meal with another couple. This is a great place for dates and very romantic. This restaurant has not lost its touch. I have never had a bad experience here. The ambiance is a little loud but this only adds to the experience that you feel like you are at a hip place. You... More

This is a nice place to have drinks after work and appetizers at the bar. It is usually quiet and not too noisy, so easy to sit and chat without being bothered by too many people or loud music. The cheese board is good offering local varieties. I will definitely go back to this local eatery.

We went to A la Maison last Saturday for dinner.. girls' night. We each had different first courses. I had an endive salad with pears, walnuts and feta that was exquisite. The others had onion soup and escargot. And of course we all had a bite of each.....and both were very good. The onion soup was possibly as good as... More
