Our experience at Bijoux restaurant was in one word, palatable. The arrival was cordial, the ambience was comfortable, and the staffs were affable. The procession of the courses was precise, the ritual of mending our table at the conclusion of each course was assiduous, and a complimentary champagne toast from the maitre d completes a wonderful evening. However In the realm of 5 stars perfection, the hype of expectation, the gravity of anticipation; Bijoux was good, Bijoux was comfortable, BUT... Bijoux was predictable. After having visited the other two 5 stars "French" restaurant in Dallas, Bijoux is not at the same level as The French Room nor Aurora. Chef Gottlich walked pass our table (one of only two tables on a Tuesdday evening) at least 5 times and never once pause to greet us. Let them eat cake perhaps?

James Donohue the Maitre d was elated to welcome us, Carlos our head server took care of us as members of the family, the champagne stimulated, and the merlot balanced. The ritual of the arrival and the departure of the culinary arts were flawless. I was not a guest at the French Room, not a character in a play; there were no choreography, no anticipations, I was at ease, I did not want more, I was home, I felt right. It was one evening I will always remember. The French Room did not disappoint.
La Madeleine is pretty much known to be a chain french fast food. But in my experience it's been more then just fast food. I love the decor of the restaurant it gives u an old country atmosphere & love the fire place. It's very casual & very comfortable feeling dinning at this place. I love their selection of sandwiches with yummy soups for lunch. And for dinner I enjoy their Mediterranean Pasta. I wish they would come up with more affordable pasta items in their menu.
