No need to go to France for great French food. Small intimate family owned restaurant located in strip mall in Bradenton. From the moment you walk in you feel like you are in France. They start you off with fresh baked crusty french bread. Had Cauliflower Bisque that was delicious. The duck breast was also delicious. All vegetables are as fresh as you could imagine. The creme brulee for dessert should not be missed. You will not find better authentic french food with-in 50 miles. Once you have experienced this restaurant you will be back with friends. It is THAT GOOD! Spread the word.

Located in a strip mall at Manatee and 75th st this is a unique family owned bistro. Elodie is the hostess her husband the chef and their charming son tends tables like a pro. The food is fresh and authentic French cuisine served to impress. The portions are larger than traditional french servings , flavors and sauces are on the mark. The restaurant was a bit warm as the kitchen is close, wooden chairs are uncomfortable after an hour. The family service is warm and endearing. Worth your visit....

The restaurant is presided over by Elodie herself, who takes your order. The atmosphere is "Bistro Chic," I guess you'd call it. The food is exotic and exciting.

Just went to Elodie for the first time after a recommendation from a friend. We very much enjoyed the entire experience including the service, the ambiance and of course the food. Elodies is definitely a family affair and she is a vibrant enthusiastic ambassador who makes everything sound good. We shared a mussel appetizer which was spectacular and then enjoyed the duck and a special gulf shrimp entree with mashed sweet potatoes and vegetables - both were very good. We are leaving for Michigan (snowbirds) on Friday, but will definitely return when we get back to Florida in the fall.

Elodie was recommended by a friend of my friend and most certainly did not disappoint.
Do not be dissuaded by the unassuming location in the corner of a strip mall. Elodie's delivers top notch, authentic French cuisine in a casual atmoshere.
The crusty bread with walnuts presented before our appetizer was of the highest quality and an indication of their attention to detail. Both the chicken dish (a special) and the scallops were delicious although the apple dessert, while tasty, was a little difficult to share as it was made up of a whole (rather than sliced) apple.
Elodie herself is utterly charming and her son, our waiter, was not only professional and charming he was so cute we wanted to take him home :).

We wish this family owned restaurant the best of luck and highly recommend a visit!
