We were amazed at the quality of food vs the cost. We had a wonderful dinner here and loved the place! The service was fantastic, the wines were great and the food quality was top notch. We started with the steak tartare and the house bread with a green cilantro sauce. Then we had the scallops with ravioli and the... More

La Sen has become our favorite French/local restaurant. Every dish is excellent. Our favorite meal, duck, is outstanding, both the breast and the duck leg confit. The salads are wonderful. They have the best house wines of any restaurant.

Not only is the food amazing, but the servir has always been wonderful. First they bring you bread with a dipping sauce which is really simple but nice, we have tried duck, the pork chops and the coq au vine and though I didn't try them, my husband swore the escargot was great! I loved their profiteroles and the flourless... More

This is one of our go to restaurants. The food is always wonderful, some of our favorites are the Beef Bourguignon, pork chop or the scallops. Their corkage is reasonable ($15.00) and they service is always wonderful.

I should have know what the evening would be like when the first thing said to the 6 of us as we sat down was that they had run out of wine glasses and we would need to wait until some could get washed. 40 minutes later we finally got the glasses, some bread, and ended up giving our first... More

La Sen is one of our favorite go to restaurants! Quyn and her husband, Hai, are warm, welcoming people. Their restaurant serves the most delicious food! We have always come away happy with the flavors of the meal still memorable. We love their calamari and crab cakes to start. Also their bread dip of creamy cilantro is a perfect a... More

This was my third time at La Sen and it is one of the few restaurants where I initially went because of a Groupon but have since come back without discounts. The food is rich, delicious and comforting. My wife and I especially like it on cold nights in winter. Prices are reasonable and the wine list OK. The service... More

It was a special evening as we celebrated New Year's Eve. Food was very good and except for the prawns we'd rate as excellent. Service and ambiance excellent. We highly recommend it.

Instead of attempting to park in Walnut Creek we decided on visiting La Sen Bistro on Christmas Eve. The seating is tight but the ambiance was altogether comfortable. The salads, crusty bread and dipping sauce set the tone for a great dining experience. The duck confit was crusty and tender and the lamb chops were perfectly cooked (pink) and very... More

Had a 7:30PM reservation here but was not seated for 20 minutes. Once seated it was another 15 minutes before we got a waiter and some glasses of water. We then ordered some beverages and our menu selections. Beverages took a long time to arrive and then we were told that they only had one filet mignon. So we had... More
