Went here for dinner one night during business trip. The walk from hotel (Marriott Rivercenter) is about 10-15 minutes, not too bad. Ordered the Mussels in Marimiers style (white wine, cream, shallots, garlic) comes with fries. Also paired with a glass of white wine. Very...More

Don not expect a dressy quiet low lit restaurant. It is a casual and relaxing atmosphere. The food is AMAZING! I had taken my mom and daughter after reading the reviews and trying to find escargot. The escargot is tender and superb! The mussels are...More

Recently had dinner at La Frite with friends to celebrate a birthday. We ordered from their Prix Fixe Menu which offered amazing options. We had the best dinner and they allowed us to split two Prix Fixe meals three ways. It was perfect for three...More

Never disappoints!! Mussels with butter and garlic very tasty. Salad with pear and Gorgonzola light. It’s big enough to share. The frites with dipping sauces very tasty. The chicken and mushroom crepe excellent. Top off the night with the creme brûlée. Wine selection adequate.

Agatha Christie’s detective Poirot is constantly reminding people, “I am not French, I am Belgian.” Such is also the case for this restaurant. I have resigned myself at better restaurants to accept informal service. I used to require professional and impersonal service to give five...More

Very refreshing to have such a jewel in San Antonio, where most food is either Mexican or contemporary American. Mussels are very tasty and our favorite entree is Hanger steak. Wine selection is very good, mostly French. The decor is French bistro with white cotton...More
