“A real find! Mon Reve Restaurant”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

The food is wonderful and the atmosphere is friendly. We go there about once a month (its what I want for my anniversary every year). Expect to take at least an hour for dinner. Reservations are recommended. The cuisine is French and very delicious. I have trouble deciding what to eat because there are so many excellent dishes. Occasional off the menu specials give a real treat--something different than what is on the menu. This is one of 2 restaurants in this town that get my dinner business. Of the two, this is my favorite!

“Yum!”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

Really great lamb! Meals are fairly large so we did a 'split plate' and there was more than enough food for both of us. Quality was great. Owner was really friendly and hospitable. A gem in Ridgecrest!

“Genuine French Feel”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

We checked Trip Advisor from our hotel and ended up going here for dinner. It was a good choice.

The restaurant owner is French (or at least did a good impression!) and the restaurant had a genuine French feel. It was a Tuesday night but still very busy although we got a table without having to wait.

The food was great. Fresh and tasty. Both of us enjoyed our meals and the portions were not too big (a good thing).

The service was a little slow (it took about an hour for our main course to arrive) and the post dinner coffee was terrible but don't let that put you off! If you are in Ridgecrest then this place is a great place to eat.

“Delicious!!”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

My husband and I went here with our daughter...it was excellent!! We both had the French onion soup, salade prosciutto, and Creme brûlée...all were delicious. The interior is charming with French inspired murals and the server was friendly and efficient. The chef also came out several times to greet customers. What a wonderful little restaurant...we never expected to find anything like this in Ridgecrest, we will definitely be back!

“Would not go back”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

I would not eat here again. Food took a long time and was not great. The salmon we ordered was tough and very over cooked. Stroganoff sauce was nice but the beef was tough . Nice place for ridgecrest but that's not saying much. Just my experience, nothing more.
