My husband and I visited this restaurant on our annual trip south, seeking an alternative to a steakhouse. When we arrived for our 7:45 reservation, the place was quite noisy due to two large tables occupied by large noisy people. Thankfully they left soon after 8:00 and the rest of us were able to enjoy more intimate conversations. The wine... More

This restaurant is totally awesome. We live 500 miles away from it but any time that we are within 100 miles of Ridgecrest we make a point of coming here for dinner. We have never been disappointed. The owner is very gracious and the staff are excellent. If you like French food this is the place to visit.

This quaint little restaurant in the business section of Ridgecrest is so reminiscent of similar places in Paris. Nothing pretentious in its appearance but in quality of food and service, there is nothing like it anywhere near Ridgecrest. The entrees are all wonderful but the chef's handling of vegetable side dishes is exceptional.

We loved our experience in this charming restaurant during our trip in California. We spent a very good moment and we appreciated very much to talk with the owner who comes from the city where we grew up in France.. Incredible !! The service and meals were very delicious. A good restaurant, I recommend it.

My friend, who lives in Mammoth, and I, who drove up from Oceanside, met at Mon Reve for a celebration of her birthday. I chose the restaurant because she and I had been to Paris many years ago. We had a delightful afternoon in the beautiful surroundings listening to French cafe music and enjoying delicious food. We each had a... More

This restaurant is the best in Ridgecrest. A little pricey for some folks but not for what you get in food and atmosphere. I don't mind paying a little extra for the excellent meal. Generous portions and fantastic food. Also have nice assortment of wines, something NO OTHER restaurant offers in this town. Eat there at least once a month.... More

My previous employer would host the company holiday party here. It was always a joke between us workers that we were going to meet at Burger King afterwards to fill up. The quality of food is not good, the portion sizes are tiny, and the prices are ridiculous. Basically go here if you plan to spend a lot of money... More
