My husband and I decided to try La Nicoise Cafe. We were delighted we did! It is a hidden Gem! The staff, chef, atmosphere, and food were wonderful! The French onion soup was the best I’ve ever had! The main course was absolutely delicious, and the sauces complement, and make the dish! My husband had filet mignon which he heartily enjoyed, and I had chicken in a savory sauce that I can’t complement enough. For dessert I had cheesecake and My husband had Cream Brûlée. We both enjoyed everything about our dining experience, and will be going there again! — Anonymous

Overpriced, service bordered on rude and passive aggressive. Tried it on multiple occasions and felt sorry I went there each time. Just because it is an early bird menu doesn't mean that it doesn't cost us a bunch, or that the food and service have to be mediocre. — Anonymous Reviewer

Jaret d'agneau braise. Braised lamb shank served with country style white beans. Not .Instead of meltingly tender lamb shank braised with white beans: Roasted, sliced, and grilled chewy lamb leg served with navy beans from a can mixed with some lamb juice and lots of rosemary. Having said that-I have only eaten there once and this is what I ate. And the chocolate mousse was really good. — Anonymous Reviewer

My husband and I ate dinner at La Nicoise tonight. Truly, this is a crown jewel of Winchester. This restaurant immediately makes you feel like you're at home with the warm, family-oriented environment. And that would be enough for a great review, but the FOOD. Oh, the food. The chef is a master cook and every bite will make you want to come back for more. We had the seared scallops appetizer, Saumon á la Richard, grilled chicken breast, and finished with a slice of cheesecake. Every single moment was out of this world. Don't pass this place by- it will transport you to a better place, a better time, and you won't want to leave. — Anonymous Reviewer

I can't imagine what I was thinking when we went back to La Nicoise. Still the slightly stale, cold baguettes were doled out two slices at a time, the bits of meat in the beuf Borguingion were as hard as rubber erasers, the salad meager. Don't go! — Anonymous Reviewer

Today I had the pleasure of eating lunch at La Nicoise Cafe. Although I am a Winchester resident and the restaurant has been open for 5 years, this was my first time dining there. I guess I'm one of the many who forget there is more to Downtown Winchester than the walking mall. La Nicoise Cafe is just a few minutes stroll from the center of the walking mall and across the street from the Fire House. It was an absolutely fabulous meal, Frederic is quite charming and is an excellent Chef. We were told everything is prepared "in house". The waitress was very friendly and offered excellent service. I found so many items on the menu I would have liked to try that it was hard to pick.. My friend and I decided to order several differnt things to share so we could taste a variety of Chef' Frederic's culinary talents. We were delighted with everything we tried from the Classic French Onion Soup to the Pate Campagne, on to the Croque Monsieur served with a deliciously fresh mixed salad with the house dressing and lastly 2 scrumptuous desserts of Warm Blackberries Napolean and Warm Rum Bread Pudding (we just couldn't decide and had to get both). It was truly a pleasant surprise dining in this little French Cafe. I look forward to tasting more of Chef Frederic's cooking. Take the walk (or drive) to La Nicoise Cafe, I think you will likely return as I plan to do.... — Anonymous Reviewer

My husband and I recently took advantage of the coupon offer and had dinner at this wonderful restaurant. The service was excellent and the owner was delightful and visited our table several times to check on how we were doing and how we were enjoying our meal. The meal was delicious! The presentation was lovely. We will definitely be returning for another visit soon. The coupon made it so much more affordable for us. Definitely worth a five star rating. — Anonymous Reviewer

I read all of these reviews and decided to try it again. It had been 3 years since we last had lunch there and obviously it had grown up. WRONG! I am starting to doubt the reviews on this site. The food is decent, yes. If it has been awhile or your first time, you are treated as if what took you so long. No bread until you order, only wine and beer and the chef literally quit during dinner service. No kidding, stormed out and threw his apron behind him. Thank God he came back because his food is pretty good but this place is a 3. Period! And play French music, not ABBA! Too long in business to be like this...mediocre. — Anonymous Reviewer

What everyone else has said is true. The owner is awesome, and the wait staff as well. My husband and i went there last night for the first time and we don't like a pretentious atmosphere, so we were impressed from the start. This place has the perfect atmosphere- casual, warm, inviting, but it still feels romantic and special. The food was great and reasonable priced. We shared two bottles of wine, the mushroom appetizer, steak frites, and the snapper. All delicious. We wanted to stay for dessert but we were trying to get to a movie. We both can't wait to go back, and that's unusual for my husband because he usually isn't impressed with "fancy" restaurants. — Anonymous Reviewer

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky to be invited to have lunch at La Nicoise Cafe It was one of the best meals I have ever had. I ordered the Portabella Ravioli with mushroom sauce and it came with a side order of spinach that was out of this world Everything was perfect The staff was warm and friendly Service couldn't have been any better Everybody in our party agreed about the food Yes it was a bit more money that some of the other restaurants in Winchester But it was worth every penny Can't wait to go back again and try something else off the fanatic menu Wish I could give it more that 5 stars — Anonymous Reviewer
