This review is from last June. We went there for our anniversary. It had always been one of our favorite local restaurants, and that is why I hesitated to write this review. We had patronized this restaurant for many years since, I believe, before it even used to be Clayton's. The service has always been impeccable, and the soft piano... More

I am sad to say this is strike 3 for Bon Femme. So, I venture back for a so-called quick dinner last night because I wanted crepes (note: for whatever odd reason BF decided that crepes are only a dinner item, very strange for a so-called French Restaurant) only to find the persistence of mediocrity in this former "go-to" restaurant....

We come here several times a year, the food is delicious and they have a nice selection of wine. It is beautifully decorated and a nice place to go for a special occasion. We always leave full and happy! The fresh French bread in the bread basket is = killer! YUM! We always order fish and it is very fresh.... More

The place itself is decorated very well. It has that upscale feel and look. It gives you a feel of an upscale restauarant in a large city. The service was over the top. Our server was friendly and on top of our needs. (if she is reading this review....my husband was concerned for my hair if we sat outside due... More

When my husband and I are looking for a special place for lunch or dinner, we often head to Bon Femme in nearby Valparaiso. Our most recent visit was on a cold winter day and we were warmly greeted by staff. I enjoyed a nice glass of their house cab while my husband ordered iced tea. We were served some... More

Wow! Service and a 5 Star meal where you'd least expect it. After having horrible service from a supposed 'upscale' restaurant in this little college town, we hadn't planned to eat here - BUT we were very pleasantly surprised to find Bon Femme! Walking in to a cozy, quiet little corner of the world where there was almost a full... More

We were headed to another restaurant for lunch but they weren't open so we opted for Bon Femme and they were open. Immediately I knew it was going to be costly. Very fancy inside and all the guests were in suits. We both had a salad, one with shrimp added. And creme Brule for dessert. Our bill was $34. Pricey... More

Walked in on a Friday night and was greeted and sat down at a table with no problem. Food was good and service was great. The atmosphere was nice. Menu selection was good but pricey. Entree portions where fair in the amount that was served.
