Chef Jean-Michel Peuvrelle
It's old-school but not outmoded, with an exacting code of beliefs that owner/chef Jean-Michel Peuvrelle has carried with him throughout his life.
Born in Pas-de-Calais in the northern tip of France, Peuvrelle is the son of a charcutier (butcher). He apprenticed in Strasbourg while earning a degree in accounting.
"The best French dinner experience you can get in the area, hands down. Lovely staff, excellent food, and very fair price given all that. If you don’t go, I might actually cry."
"Incredibly relaxed environment with even more incredible dishes prepared by owner/master chef Jean Michel. When you enter you almost feel like you are family as the hostess greets and treats you so nicely. Jean Michel is an extraordinary chef who produces Extraordinary artistic meals."
"Simply excellent French food in a warm and charming environment. Jean Michel has run this place for over 20 years, and how many restaurants can you name that have survived that long? How does he do it? Good food, good service, and a friendly and tranquil atmosphere."
This is a French gem - the wife and I have been here a handful of times even for our anniversary. Their filet mignon is so tasty and and the chicken cordon blu is a nice size portion. This is a great spot in Mountain View and we cannot wait to come back.
I love this place. We did take out just a day ago, and the food is so good . I ordered the filet mignon. It was delicious with veggies, potatoes scallops and rice pilaf. That's a lot and i was happy!!! My hubby had the cordon bleu. He loved it. We also ordered a good bottle of wine and dessert. Everything was fantastic!!! The chef , who I believe is also the owner of this cute hole in the wall of a gem.We are definitely will be one of his first customers for the indoor dining
