We found a new shopping mall in South Barrington called the Arboretum. After finishing our shopping, we noticed a very nice-looking French restaurant and went in. They offered a large choice of sweet and savory crepes, a few sandwiches and a pasta dish plus a couple of lunch specials. The three of us ordered savory crepes and a dish of... More

This bistro has a delicious & varied crepe menu. It is a favorite place for lunch, but just ok for the dinner service & dinner menu.

We met a couple of friends for brunch here, but we got there a little early. The restaurant was just opening so we were waiting outside when the owner (nicest, most kind person I have met in a long time) invited us in and offered us coffee until the restaurant officially opened. I was so touched by his kind gesture!... More

Being Paris lovers stopped into L'Eiffel Bistro and Creperie. Very nicely appointed with great service. They have happy hour from 4-7 Tuesday -> Friday. We also ordered a nice cheese and pate plate. We definitely want to return for dinner.

I have lived in the area for 5 years and just tried this restaurant for the first time this year. Their crepes are fantastic and my husband had a wild game platter that was very interesting and different. I will definitely be going back!

We used to live in the area but I never tried this place. My wife raved about it so we stopped in on my recent business trip. Started with escargot, which was pretty good, not the best I've had but close. I prefer a bit more garlic. The bread was great soaked in the extra butter! I had the kobe... More

We ordered the chefs salad and the La Cajun crepe which we shared. Both salad and crepe are substantial being served on 18 inch plates. The La Cajun was stuffed with meat and shrimp. The sauce for the crepe was a tad salty but the chef's salad was fresh and served with fresh strawberries.

We have eaten at L'Eiffel 4 or 5 times over the past 18 months. Food has been consistently good. Portion sizes vary widely based on what is ordered. Some entrees arrive a la carte. Others may come with a salad +/or side vegetable. The seafood crepes are very good as are the shrimp and scallops with black pasta. We can... More

Tried this restaurant last Friday. We found the food to be very good. I had the Hanger Steak with Burgundy Sauce. I ordered it medium, and it was cooked to perfection. My only wish would have been if it were made known that in addition to the burgundy sauce (served on the side, yay!) it was also going to come... More
