“Delightful and tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2012

A charming neighborhood restaurant with food that is consistently tasty and fresh. The owner is from Marseille. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. When you would like to feel as if you are in France but not Paris, this is the place to visit for a delightful meal.

“Contemporary Authentic French.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2011

Forget Louis the whatever, La Cigale is a modern space with more of a "lounge" vibe than a place you might hear accordions. The owner is from Marseilles in the South, and this is reflected in the cuisine.
I began with a salade de chevre, very nice, which I followed with grilled shrimp "Provençale," prepared in a tasty seasoning, with a hint of anise. Was quite nice. The light, fluffy rice that came along was actually memorable. My friend had Salmon with ratatouille, and both were well prepared. The owner was very attentive on what was an admittely very slow rainy Tuesday, and he made very good suggestions about food parings. Portion size is on the European side, so do order that appetizer.....it will be good.
