I have often come to the French Quarter Market Place to meet friends for lunch or dinner. The menu is HUGE, and the atmosphere is fun. This is a great place for people watching! I have also enjoyed everything I have ordered here.

If you are a newbie, I recommend asking the guy behind the counter who the faster waiter is and seat on his section. Food taste is consistent and HUGE salads make my days. French Onion soup is also good.

The French Quarter Restaurant is a good place for relatively standard food. The dishes sound great, but lose something in the preparation. A few good items, like the muffins, are available. The food is not bad, just kind of ordinary. Just like the others in their group, MIMI's.

Started great with a hearty French onion soup and crispy garlic bread, thought I was going to be pleasantly surprised. Spoke too soon, the filet of sole was rubbery and lacked seasoning. The fish wasn't dry or overcooked, I don't know how they got that texture. The wild rice was tastelss, recommend lots of salt. Maybe they have a specialty, but stay away from the fish.

I had good expectations for the breakfast since it was recommended. While the service was friendly, the coffee was weak and the food tasted overly processed. I had the crab cake benedict. The crab cake was very fried & tasted like something out of the frozen food section. The orange/cilantro hollandaise that accompanied it was bad. My husband had the regular eggs benedict & thought the hollandaise sauce tasted like it was from can. After looking at the menu a second time we realized, there is nothing French or New Orleans style about this food with the exception of the French onion soup. The menu jumps from Mexican, Mediterranean, Italian, American, to Deli stye, etc. The restaurant is trying to be too many things at once. And with a menu like this, I can't see how anything would be fresh. To sum it up you get Disney World ambiance with Disney World food, at Disney World prices.

Both the indoor cafe and the outdoor patio are great spots to perch for casual conversation and a light meal. I often notice other patrons contented to dine by themselves, with a newspaper. A great casual spot easily accessible in a great part of West Hollywood.

The French Quarter, at least for me, is a place to have a good sit-down dinner. Parking is usually a bit of a problem, but once you're past that, you can enjoy a nice meal. I've always sat out on the patio, so I can't attest to indoor tables, but the outside ones are always fun for me. Meals are hearty and delicious. An ice cream sundae followup never hurts either. After dinner, I've enjoyed browsing through the shops inside. The only thing I've ever bought was a greeting card, but the indoor shops are pretty much an experience (ok, I'm exaggerating a bit...but they're nice). Good for brunch.

I donot understand someone's gripe about getting the wrong order, and not speaking up! Come on, it shouldn't happends, but please speak up. I have never had a bad time here, sure they are not perfect, budt they will do anything, if possible, that you ask. If you wanted to dine, go to a fine diningroom, such as CUT, and pay there prices. I believe you were complaining for the sake of complaining-and couldn't think of anything else to say.

Very interesting cute restaurant that seems to be very gay friendly. Went on a Sunday after church. Very crowded for Sunday Brunch. They do offer counter service and the wait was not long. Parking lot was too small for Sunday but they had a parking attendant that would ensure who gets there first gets the next parking place...it was nice to have people just wait in line until something opened. Nice touch. This is a basic coffee shop. Only a couple service issues that I can overlook since it was crowded, Sunday, and 8 at our table. I had ordered a BBQ Bacon burger and out came a regular burger. I had plans that evening so I just took what came. He did write down the regular burger so I will just say it was noisy and I am soft spoken. The Burger came with no fries so you have to order seperate. There is either a mixed greens (not Southern but salad), fruit, or soup that comes with it. I opted of the soup and the choice of soup I made was Crab Asparagus Cream soup. Very smooth in texture and velvety. The taste that hits first was the asparagus, then a hint of crab enough to know it was there but not enough to overpower the first taste and then the velvety texture takes hold on the pallet. I had coffee with lunch and while we were all talking I ordered an Ice Tea (it was hot in there). The Ice Tea is served with a lemon wedge and mint however, I had to ask for my tea twice and when it came I had no garnishes what so ever. Fortunately, my friend did not use his mint. Love mint in my tea.

Pros: Quality with out the price

Cons: Parking too small. Include extras with orders ie mint and lemon with tea

Once you get over the inside-outside patio setting, you settle into the vague famliarity that you've been here before. The food's decent enough, to be sure, but it's very Americanized French food. Our service was really slow and I'd be interested in coming back during off-peak hours if I weren't so inclined to dine elsewhere.

The French Market is a place that I had driven by for 5-6 years and always kind of wondered about it. 2 Bored friends and I played a nerdy yet entertaining game on Saturday night?.

We Citysearch?ed the 15 closest restaurants to my apartment, nominated 4 restaurants that we all 3 had never been to, and then agreed to choose the one that had the highest health board score. We were all pleased when French Market won ?Restaurant Survivor? as the 2 of us that have lived in LA the longest had apparently harbored a secret curiosity about this striped, awning?ed, and patio?d place?.

For some reason, I had some unconscious 6th sense that this place was somehow known for its pancakes?I was right. My companionette enjoyed a plentiful of evening pancakes that were ?better than we could have made at home? but not quiet ?to die for?.

We were there on a Saturday night between 10 and 11 PM?.too late for a dinner rush (if they even have one) and too early for the uneven pulse of hungry drunk people on their way home. It was actually kind of quiet. The reviews are right?this place is not cool, not hip, the people are kind of not pretty. The crowd is predominantly gay in a way that I am used to and conscious of from living in WeHo, and I noticed it only in the way that I would expect my visiting family from out of town to notice and comment on ?how its so common here? were they to visit and dine with me here.

Menu ? huge, .like Jerry?s deli but cheaper. Even better, they encourage you to make up your own dishes. You could basically order whatever you want and they will make it for you.

Servers were not typical actors in waiting?.more experience and patient. I would come back here. And I write really aggressive reviews for places I don?t like.

Pros: Big Menu, Cheaper than other similar restaurants, people watching, totally doesnt feel LA

Cons: the inside room reminds me of Chucky Cheese or Epcot

on the first day we moved into our apartment. we came here for lunch, every time you drive by this restaurant, you think it's a very popular place, but why? i think the interior is very very tasteless, the food is not french at all, it's just another burger place...how did this place come to this name?

Walking in to the French Quarter I had the strange feeling I had been there before. The decor is the same as every Mimi's Cafe in the country. Getting past that, the breakfast we ate there was pretty good. The strange thing was that even though a member of our party knew most of the staff the service was still slow. While I can't tell you not to eat at French Quarter I also can't come up with a reason to go out of your way to dine there.

I have never walked away without being treated like one of the French Market family. In fact most people take so much time getting to know their customers likes/dislikes its is almost twilight zone-esk to arrive and and already have the drink of my choice on the table before I have even opened my menu. If this is your kind of service: this is your kind of place.

this place is great comfort food. ignore the negative reviews if you are straight and want a good, hearty meal. true, the crowd is old, ultra gay and uncool but who the hell cares? i'm not there to pick up dudes. i take my girl here after seeing flicks at the laemmle's on sunset or dga. it's the perfect, relaxed place to grab good grub before heading home to the west side. get the angel hair pasta with pot roast and bolognese sauce....top it off with an apple crumble and fall asleep with a full belly.

I've had dinner there three times. Every time the food was less then mediocre and the service also desired improvement. They don't really pay attention to you, they don't care about you. Anyway, this weekend I tried their breakfast. What a mistake! The omlettes looked disgusting, had no taste and the potato was totally burned. It was simply inedible. The waiter was not there mentally; he was still comatose from his nigth out. Why would anyone want to have breakfast there when a block down the boulevard there's Marco's with great breakfast that looks and tastes delcious and with a friendly staff. I mean, really, do you really go to a restaurant for just people watching? I go for the food and a good service. I, for the last time vowed that I will neverr go back.

This place should go down in the books as one of West Hollywoods favorites. The food, service and pleasant casual ambiance is consistent as it was when I first found it 18 years ago. If you are in the mood for people watching, I definitely recommend a table on the patio. For something a little more away from it all, try a seat inside overlooking the live fish pond.

The menu selections are abundant! If you have difficulty sorting through all your options, listen to your stomach.

This place is a dinosaur waiting to die. The zombies in this place are a throwback to 1980s wannabe hipsters. The food is so-so and the prices are good. However no matter how cheap the meal it still is lacking. I recommend if your drunk,on social security,or have no where else to go.
