This place is the BEST! Beyond delicious pastries and bread, the French Gormet has small packaged meals and soups. And a huge selection of wines. Plus a french restaurant. This is gem, tucked away in this residential area. Must Vist!

I flew all the way from South Carolina to try the new spring menu created with Chef Art. To say it was worth it is an understatement. I had the best flavored wings. The perfect Mac and Cheese. Phenomenal French onion soup and over the top truffle fries. The hidden alley dining was spectacular and well maintained in accordance to all the covid rules. I was absolutely impressed and I highly recommend that you try the place out too.

Welcomed and seated promptly (outdoors due to COVID), the service was excellent. The charcuterie board was quite good with a lovely pate. My duck and bean stew (forget the french name, it was the special) was delicious. The desserts were unimpressive, with my creme brûlée the consistency of fondant. Overall the meal was pleasant, the food taste, and the service exemplary. Skip the desert. I can’t speak to the wine list (which was extensive) as we are not wine drinkers, and the ambience was ordinary, due to seating in the alley (again, due to covid).

the wait staff was amazing! Very attentive. We had a reservation and it wasn’t clear with the line down the sidewalk if we were to wait or go right in.

We wined, dined, & desserted. Fabulous restaurant and bakery. What a treasure! Also an amazing wine selection. A private collection that we were able to participate in purchasing. This is a true French treat.

This review is only for the takeout portion of the bakery. Called them up first because I wasn’t able to find cake slices for pickup on their menu anywhere, and Jamie, was very informative and polite. Basically, the glass display has a wide array of croissants, frosted sugar cookies, quiches, brioches, cake slices, fruit tarts, palmiers, mousses, madeleines, creme brulee, etc. They also have meal prep sized entrees, salads, and quarts of soup ready in the refrigerated section. The inventory was amazing, so it took me awhile to decide! Either way, they had 3 staff members readily available to help, but not pushy at all. I have to say, one of my last-minute impulse decisions was probably my best… The spinach cheese mushroom croissant. The BEST croissant I’ve ever put in my mouth. On initial bite, you get this crunchy crustiness on the outside, from the baked cheese on top. Meanwhile, your mouth is slowly being seduced by the soft, buttery, luscious layers of croissant inside, that provide contrast to its exterior. And, of course, the middle is filled with the savory never-miss combo of spinach and cheese, balanced by the silky earthiness of those sliced mushrooms. Worth the $5.50. The classic butter croissant was also excellent. A sugar brioche roll was yummy zapped in the micro for 15 seconds for breakfast the next day. Cake slices: Raspberry Bagatelle – My favorite–tart, fresh, sweet, light yet creamy. I couldn’t stop eating this. Lemon Buttercream – Also yum… I love lemon desserts! Millennium – Not typically a chocolate person, but Josh recommended this, and it was great too! The perfect balance of richness/bitterness, great textures, and white and dark chocolates. Would get this one again. Carrot Cake – This was good, but I’ve had better. I prefer mine a little more moist, and with a cream cheese frosting. My least favorite of the 5 slices. Strawberry Bagatelle – Like a good strawberries n’ cream. This was delicious, but I’d probably pick the raspberry over this, bc I think the tartness from the raspberries makes the flavor profile more interesting. The strawberries are also whole, so the bites weren’t rationed out well, to cake. You either get the biggest chunk of strawberry, or none, per bite. Note: I didn’t see a designated parking lot, so it’s La Jolla street parking you’ll have to find. I was just in and out, so the 2-3 spots of 15-min parking on the curb served me well!

We dined on a regular basis at the restaurant when there was indoor dining pre Covid lockdown. The warmth of the service, the savor of the food remained with us for long after each visit. Every time our appreciation only increased. The concern we had after it closed, per regulation, was allayed by their excellent take out facility. We have tasted most items offered on the menus and never been disappointed. The food is delicious, the delivery superb. May they go from strength to strength. More power to them!

The French Gourmet has great food and during these days of social isolation I like to get some of their takeout dishes like pot pies and quiches which you can heat in your oven at home and enjoy.

I went to the French Gourmet in PB and they had  the most clever Outdoor Restaurant set up I’ve seen yet. They took an alleyway that was just for trucks and turned it into the sweetest little bistro. So not only was the food amazing but the decor was so clever! And my omelette with goat cheese and herbs was absolutely fluffy beautiful and Scrumptious! Of course the bread is always delish and the perfectly roasted potatoes were a treat. The whole atmosphere is so well done you almost for a moment get carried away to a bistro in Paris and you forget where you’re at! we were so full we didn’t get a chance to eat the beautiful French pastry desserts we were offered, next time!

This is definitely the best bakery in town! They have almond croissants that are perfect every time. And their banana breads and banana nut muffin are really good. Haven’t had dinner here in awhile but from what I remember the Salmon was really good.

I’m a regular at the French Gourmet and can’t explain how glad I am that this gem made it through the COVID lockdowns. This establishment is a gem, I am lucky enough to work a few doors down and regularly get coffee, breakfast sandwiches and after work pastries or baked goods! The staff is friendly and the food is consistently delicious!

Still the best pastries around.  I have to come here every time I’m in town.  Their tiramisu is my favorite.  The chocolate millennium cake is also a winner.  Their tarts are so delicious!  Love love love
