Friendly service. Excellent crepes - crispy on the outside and tasty, high-quality ingredients on the inside. We had the fruits de mer (shrimp & scallops w/bechamel sauce) and the vegetarian (broccoli & tomato). Nice bubbly by the glass on New Year's Eve. Old bistro atmosphere w/fireplace and lovely French music set the stage for a late lunch after seeing a... More

The crepes are fantastic and they follow the good old french recipes. My favorite is seafood on a light white sauce and of course the crepe suzette. Can't go wrong with any of the crepes and a nice selection of french wines also very affordable.

While traveling by the local bus, my mom and I discovered this jewel. I can only imagine this place is great during the summer, with patio seating in the back. We both had a basic crepe and they were priced reasonable, and very tasty.

Found this restaurant on a trip to Chicago. I had an amazing beef bourginion crepe and a strawberry crepe. People in my party also had a ham and cheese crepe that was really good. The waitress overheard it was my birthday, she brought out some whipped cream with a candle and sang "happy birthday."

One of our go-to places. Consistently good with excellent service! Fantastic FOS! The beef bourguignon crepes were great. The waiter recommended a smooth red blend that wasn't even the most expensive wine!

I recently dined at La Creperie with my granddaughter - she had been there before and wanted to share it with me. It was delightful! We sat outside and I would highly recommend doing this. It's wonderful outside space - and you don't feel as though you are on top of everyone else. She began the evening with French Onion... More

A Lovely spot to have brunch! We enjoyed several crepes this morning--but the curry chicken crepe was tremendous! And the cold potato soup as a starter was perfect for a hot afternoon! Very refreshing! The spot was very busy, and the wait staff was apologetic and as helpful as possible.

We were walking up the street and found this place and immediately fell in love the minute we walked in, as if we walked back in time to our trip to France. We can only speak of the crepes which were delicious. So many choices! When we are back in this Chicago neighborhood, we will definitely return!

Very tasty food and looking forward to returning. Good service, and the place is clean. The music is a French delight which adds to your adventure. Thought the coffee and onion soup were extremely over priced. However, my crepe was excellent and price was acceptable. My visit was mid April, so the outdoor garden area wasn't open yet. Looking forward... More

There is a way of dining in Europe generally, and France in particular, that Americans tend not to appreciate. Likely not because of any predisposition, but because there aren't many opportunities to engage in this kind of experience. Both my wife and I find this to be one of the finest such experiences we've come across since moving back to... More
