Contemporary French, and Canadian Fare, with elevated casual service, and a cozy but vibrant atmosphere. Sit at the chefs rail in front of the open kitchen, at the bar to watch oysters get shucked, or at a table in the dining room. Great classic, and original craft cocktails, local and international beer, and a wine list boasting Canadian, French, and Italian wines.

First time at this restaurant and it won't be our last. It was a great atmosphere to catch up with old friends. Service was great and the food was outstanding. Everybody at our table ended up with a French inspired comfort food dish: duck confit and venison stew with pastry topping. Both dishes were piping hot and extremely delicious. Food and drink prices were extremely reasonable.

The food was amazing, my husband and I went with a girlfriend for my birthday, we also were telling our friend that we are expecting, the server crafted up some amazing non alcoholic beverages, and after 3 months of water it was a very nice treat. Great experience, we can't wait to go back. Would definitely recommend the duck!

We absolutely love Bon Temps. Everyone is incredibly thoughtful and their dedication to creating an amazing experience for their guests is so obvious. It's always our go to for date night and any important celebration. We actually love it so much that we got married during a family dinner at the restaurant!

The restaurant was amazing. Great food, great atmosphere and the little touch of a glass of champagne to celebrate our anniversary (which we noted in our reservation) was a great touch. The only downside was having to sit at the bar but because the place is so busy i can understand why but a table or booth would’ve made this the best meal of the year.

We had the ribeye and the gnocchi and both were amazing. It was suggested we pair it with a Tuscan red wine which was also perfect.

Staff were always available to make suggestions and take orders.

Highly recommend this restaurant

We expected more based on reviews. Charcuterie board a disappointment. Lobster wasn’t fresh in wontons. Couldn’t taste truffle in Parisian gnocchi. Was really looking forward to going but disappointed in the food. Staff were friendly and service generally good.

Serving a slice of processed cheese with Macdonald's type fries at twenty five dollars for a good hamburger was disappointing. We prefer The Ship.

Definitely would recommend. It was our first time trying Bon Temps and what a wonderful little gem. First of all, there was no rush, even thought we were there for Valentine's Day, but at no time did we feel pressured to leave. We enjoyed a fondue, oysters and mussels... delicious... and a wonderful creme brulee, done perfectly. From the good and reasonable priced wine list, to all the shareable and generous portions, we had a great experience. The server and owners were knowledgable, courteous and caring. We will be back and bring friends! Thank you!

I've already recommended this little gem to a few friends. It's perfect for a date!
Great atmosphere, dark and intimate with great food and service. Bar service is authentic with nice heavy crystal glasses and a reasonably priced wine list. Loved how you could watch the kitchen in action. Definitely returning! Make a res because it is small :)

My experience at Bon Temps was fantastic!! I was seen and seated promptly after entering despite it being quite full and very lively. I ordered the Scallops (sunchoke & truffle purée, balsamic bacon jam) which were as gorgeous to eat as they were to look at!! Our cocktails were so perfectly done that I had to have more than one!! The service was extremely attentive and prompt, not to mention patient when I needed extra time to choose what I wanted. I have already recommended it to friends and am planning to be back as soon as possible!!

We have been to this fabulous restaurant on several occasions. We took a couple who had not been before. We all had a fantastic evening...consistently creative, delicious food, amazing service, great wine list. Great vibe. Also good for dropping in for a glass of wine/cocktail, sitting at the gorgeous concrete bar. Dave is a wonderful owner/host. Highly recommended. Will definitely return.

The date night deal was great however most of the food was over salted. Specifically the beef dishes. The lobster was excellent along with the crème brûlée.the athmosphere was a bit odd with non French music and plaid shirts. But the design was lovely. Presentation of food also good.
