Just a great little place and the food was delightful. Very personal and truly has the feeling of the owners.

The place is very cozy, however the ligthing made it very hard to order and see your food. Thank God my husband had a small mac-light in his pocket. When I told the server about this he just laughed. Wait to he gets older.

The food was delicious, the sever was friendly, and the service was outstanding. Our party ordered a mimosas, bakery basket, burger + frites, vegetable omelette, and croissant sandwich.

We love Chef Race's cooking!

The food was very good and our waiter Alex!

This was a 50th birthday for my neighbor and a very special celebration and I had requested a nice table and we were seated by the kitchen and bathrooms unfortunately. They also did not do anything for her birthday which was disappointing :( If it wasn't for Alex, it would not have been such a good experience.

I enjoyed the flexability of Bearnaise the most! My pary was very surprised when our waiter informed us that we could choose any entree from the full menu rather that just the items listed under the Brunch section! That was a great beginning! Also, we were allowed to switch from the Mimosas to the Bloody Mary, then back to the Mimosas again!

We loved the basket of breads. The selection was excellent. Two people in my party had the steak and eggs which they stated were excellent. My friend and I had the smoked salmon eggs benedick. We both agreed that the eggs were cooked perfectly. The food was fresh and the portions were large! We will defenately return to the Bearnaise! Ofcourse, we'd love to get another TravelZoo deal!
