This place hasn't changed as bit since the seventies. The quality of ingredients is mediocre especially the Brazilian Steak. Vegetables are either from a can or way overcooked . Fries are a product of overused or over abused oil. I wouldn't recommend. Was wow in the eighties.

I'm afraid this restaurant's reputation of the good old days still holds true, except the food could be much better. Next to the steak, the vegetables are from a can, the soup a l'oignon is good, the cozy atmosphere wonderful.

One of the few old restaurants that still serve same good food with the same taste and quality. The soupe a l'oignon as well as the oignon tarte with the avocat shrimp cocktail are recommended. Prices are convenient and very warm ambiance specially in winter

We are totally in love with this place! As a couple we've already been there several times and have been recommending it to everyone we know. We almost always order the steak with a glass of red wine. The meat is always cooked as requested, the staff is one of the nicest you will ever meet. It is also very... More

I asked for medium cooked stake and they brought it raw inside. They took it back and brought it very dry and overcooked. Boiled carrot were overcooked and very soft. French fries were not crispy at all.

Le Gargotier has been around for as long as I can remember - we practically grew up going to this restaurant and since then, and until our last visit 2 months ago, nothing has changed. It's a very cozy restaurant set in a French bistro decor, with its fireplace, its vintage French posters and old French music. The minute you... More

Conservative, traditional french restaurant. Classy staff, nice decoration, romantic atmosphere. We suggest Tarte à l'ognion, Champignon à la provençal, Mignonnette de veau.

A classic Bistrot that prides on quality and good price. A meeting spot for loyal customer and elite community. Food and wine are well priced. Quality is consistent as well as good service. Boss is always present with customer. On the down side, it's quite noisy and crowded
