Authentic french restaurant. Good service. Fairly casual and not expensive. They offer several very reasonable fixed price three course menus with half dozen choices for most courses. We were four diners and had a mixed experience - half the party thought it was pretty good and the other half were not so impressed. Two of us had duck for example and one was good whilst the other was very undercooked and not very meaty. The vegetable side dishes were rather sparse.The carrot soup was overpowered with cream so you couldn't taste any carrot and the french onion soup very rich. However, may be this is just typical french cuisine and some of us liked it and some of us were not so keen.

We went here for lunch based on tripadvisor reviews. It was a good choice, authentic French from decor to food. Food was great and the price was right. Restrooms leave something to be desired. This place is worth trying.

I had lunch here today at this charming bistro in Pompano. The onion soup ($6) was one of the best I've ever tasted. The beef burgundy ($9) was excellent, very flavorful and accompanied by several different vegetables. My friend had the frogs legs ($30) which he said had a wonderful tomato sauce. The atmosphere is pleasant, the staff professional, and I would definitely return.

We enjoyed our appetizers, entrées, and our dessert.
Thelamb Shank was very tender, melt in your mouth. The sauce complimented it nicely, not swimming. The Pepper Steak was also fantastic. Our server was very knowledgeable. He made great beer choice and we will definitely return.

Their full name is 'The French Place Belgian Bistro'. Having both traveled to Belgium, my sister & I stopped by to look at their menu. The variety & reasonable prices enticed us to go for lunch. We're so glad we did! This was the best of 4 meals we had last week in the Pompano/Lauderdale area. It was so difficult to choose, that we ordered 3 entrees for the 2 of us. For starters their home baked bread was great. The Oysters Rockafeller were 6 oysters on the half shell with a combo of spinach & bacon & topped with a delicious Hollandiase sauce. The seafood crepe is not to be missed! The seafood in it included [at least] little oysters, crab meat, fish & squid. The flavorful sauce was oh so good - rich seafood flavors made with lobster! It was so full & fluffy, it was nearly like an omlet. And how often can you choose a rabbit dish - for lunch no less? So we also had the Rabbit a la moutarde [in a mustard sauce]. It was tender & tasty & accompanied by 1/2 of a baked potato, fresh asparagus spears, carrots & spinach. Everything was excellent including the service. The Belgian flag & art on the walls along with the cusine transport you right to Belgium. Next trip to the area, I will certainly return.
