As with anything attached to Frank Stitt's name, this place is so well done. We tend to go here for drinks before going next door to Highlands for dinner. I love the atmosphere-- it's classy but casual and always quite lively. It has an energy to it without being trendy. A French Bistro to a T. In my experience, Bouchon... More

i have only gotten the burgers here, but they are sooooo good that i continue to go back. the restuarant is very small and so are the tables; however, that is only a minor setback. their coconut cake is really good too and i don't even like coconut

Love the farmhouse style layout and boules court out back. Great burger and croque monsieur. They have pastis as well. Wide range. Moules and frites very good as well.

The food is always fresh and consistent. The menu offers a variety of dishes from hamburger to fresh catch. Their fries are always crisp and non greasy. Service is excellent due to the longevity of the staff and good training. Owner and Chef Frank Stitt can be seen in the kitchen as he goes between Chez Fon Fon and Highlands.... More

We had a great meal at Chez Fon Fon. I had the snapper special. It was cooked just right. The only drawback to the restaurant is that they do not take reservations. We got there at 5:45 and it was an hour wait.

Burger doesn't disappoint. Excellent skinny fries. Never a bad meal or experience. Usually there is a wait, but it's worth it.

I had heard of this place for years and finally got a chance to go...I enjoyed it very much. I had sea bass and my husband had the burger and seemed to like it as well. All in all, a nice experience that we plan on repeating, very soon.
