A bit of France in San Diego! – We keep coming back. The food is consistently great and reasonably priced. We make friends each time at the bar or in the dining room, and run into them again and again. Seems the word is out and people keep coming back. Olivier is a great chef and the staff is delightful, welcoming us by name. Rochelle suggests special wines and aperitifs. We always feel welcome. This is our favorite place to unwind after a busy day, or to take friends for a special event. So nice to have French quality in our neighborhood!
Overpriced and no country charm here... – The atmosphere is hardly romantic or oozing any country charm - avoid the patio; you're practically eating in a busy street (Adams Ave.) Inside, some tables are too close to each other so you could at least describe it as cozy. Their breakfast menu doesn't offer too many options and portions are small. The french fries were good but they need to work on their bouillabaisse recipe -blah and overcooked. The desserts were tiny and average - the chocolate dessert seemed like it was frozen and thawed just before dinner. Waitresses were flustered for an early Sat night dinner and the restaurant was only half full. Gave it a couple of chances but it failed to impress us. There are some excellent new restaurants cropping up in San Diego and this not one of them.
University Heights' French bistro oozes country charm with a menu of provencal comfort foods in a quaint, rustic space. – In Short
With seating for just 40 people, plus a few more on the small patio if the weather permits, Farm House harks back to the smaller sidewalk cafes of Europe. The interior paint chips perfectly to evoke an old farmhouse feel, as do iron accents and fabric chair backs. Candles light each table and the half-circle bar, while rustic French classics illuminate the menu. Escargot Risotto and roasted tomato soup stand out on the appetizer list. Flat-iron steak drenched in blue cheese butter can't be beat for dinner.
