One of my favorite special places to eat but apparently it has closed. The phone number says "No longer is service" and the website is gone. So sad to lose this place.

One could easily drive by this hidden jewel. Not only is the food authentic, but it is also reasonably priced. Every day there are chalk board specials in addition to the menu items. This time I had their famous French onion soup topped with Gruyere cheese and a buttery crouton. This was undoubtedly the best I have eaten. The broth... More

A great restaurant for French faire food, the escargot were excellent, a little pricey but worth the experience, a small hole in the wall type , with great food. The sea bass special that night was fantastic.

Just had a delightful French dinner in Misson Hills (on Sepulveda Blvd, a few blocks south of the 118 & just south of San Fernando Mission - East side of Sepulveda, adjacent to the car dealer). Very cute & nice - French-looking & French-feeling - ambiance, with Edith Piaf's and Charles Aznavour's songs of the '60's softly playing in the... More

The waitress was rude when she messed up my order and told me not to eat it instead of apologizing for her mistake.

Been going here for quite some time now, my parents use to dine here, who were introduced by my grandparents. Friendly service, owner always remembers me, and visits our table every time. Since he has been back in the kitchen the food has gotten even better!!!! Which is hard to believe since it was already so delicious. Not at all... More

Haven't been here for a while so I thought I'd drop in for dinner. French Onion Soup! Still one of the soups best around. For my entrée, I chose the Pork Medallions. It was a good choice. Very tender pork, topped with a touch of sweet BBQ sauce, along with mashed spuds and some not over cooked veggies. The only... More

Finally, a decent (understatement) French restaurant in the San Fernando Valley! This restaurant is hidden and can be easily missed while driving. Across the U.S. Post Office, Nissan and Toyota dealers, this gem is not to be missed. Very cozy and romantic atmosphere! Each seating table will provide you ample privacy. The owner Michel will "roam" around to maker sure... More

Friends recommended L'Affaire. After living in France, we were craving authentic French food. Michel, our host, introduced himself in French, and the evening got better from there. The lamb shank was fantastic, as were the linguini & clams, and both the chicken & veal marsala - and the chocolate cake is to die for!
