Robust dinner entrees, such as the lamb shank niçoise with white-bean cassoulet ($25.50), always model locally grown vegetables that change with the season. After a long day of hunting rare eBay goods, diners can chomp on a roasted rack of lamb in rosemary sauce ($29.90) or compose a pastoral ode to the frog legs provençale—a crispy appetizer prepared in the French rural style ($9.25).

Patrons conclude meals with European desserts of crème brûlée ($6.50) or bananas foster ($7.50). The wine list, contains more than 80 French and California regional selections available by the glass ($7.50–$8.50), bottle, or hollowed computer monitor. The interior of the French Market Grille evokes a cozy country house with its working fireplace, warm yellow walls, and soft music hummed by a team of invisible grandmothers. Patrons can dine in an upholstered nook or in an airy outdoor patio bedizened with fresh flowers.

French Market Grille

French Market Grille, a charming sister restaurant to downtown San Diego's Hexagone, celebrates the rich culinary heritage of France with an elegant spread of braised meats, local market vegetables, Mediterranean seafood, and tasty French and Californian wines. The impressive bill of fare treats guests to bistro lunches of salad niçoise and eggplant sandwiches, dinners of roasted rack of lamb and coq au vin, and desserts of crème brulée and apple tarte tatin. It also delights with its bouillabaisse—a fish stew that the San Diego Union Tribune once called “too perfect to pass up.”

Guests sip Beaujolais amid the flowers and sunshine of the brick-walled patio or curl up to the interior's crackling fireplace for a romantic dinner date or even more romantic business lunch.

Customer Reviews

Wonderful service & delicious food.
Nancy G. · October 21, 2016
Nice restaurant. Had the Crab Cake with Phillo Crust and Bell Pepper Sauce for a starter and it was nice. For the main had the Mushroom Ravioli with Ratatouille Sauce and it was just excellent. Wife had the soup of the day, and fillet. Said both very good. Nice place, excellent service, reasonably priced wine list. We will definitely go back.

Went for dinner on a week night and the place was nearly empty! Despite that we had a superb time. Lovely French music in the background, very attentive waiter (who happened to be the owner!!) and excellent food and wine - they have some really, really good wines by the glass. Patrick (owner) provided us with some helpful and excellent recommendations and we thoroughly enjoyed the dishes served and we came away with enough for dinner the next night at home. Loved it and will go back for sure.
