Taix French Restaurant
Taix French Restaurant is a culinary landmark. Serving up excellent French Country cuisine since 1927, its glowing reputation is well-deserved. Large, warm and friendly, it has five banquet rooms, and can seat up to 300 patrons. The clientele includes tourists and families who have made dining here a longstanding tradition. The cuisine is consistently good, serving all the country French classics. Anything on the menu is excellent, but the Coq au Vin is a must-try, and so is the Veal Milanaise. There is a large wine list and wine may be ordered by the glass.
hands down the best french food and service. this place is my home on tuesday nights when i break away.i drink their fine wine and enjoy their delicious food . they treat you like family.its a great experience...5 stars and then some.....
Tawdry place. Time to close and begin cleaning the floors. Food presents badly. Not a French establishment by American standards and certainly not by French. Rooms are without charm. Bar is neighborhood hang and has no elan.
The old Basque family that gave rise to the place has left the building ...
C'est pas Francais, mon vieux!
Taix has gone downhill. We've been going to Taix for the last 8 years. We had a horrible experience on New Years Eve 07. We expect our meals to be prepared when ordered, not taken out of warming trays and put on a plate. Pretty presentation does nothing to mask over cooked and poorly seasoned food. Several items on the menu were not available. The desserts weren't edible ... dry chocolate mousse cake (how is mousse dry?) or soggy cherries jubilee (it had been sitting for a long time). Just awful. Our server disappeared for 30 minutes and no one asked how our meal was ... perhaphs they knew better. We have started to frequent other restaurants. There's no excuse for poor quality at any price. 2 stars is generous. I doubt that we'll be back.
I have eaten here dozens of times since the '70s and have never had a bad experience. The staff is ever friendly and the food has never disappointed. The wine is very reasonable by the bottle or the glass. I like the fact that my in-laws have dined there since the '40s. A great treat in LA.
Going to the Taix French Restaurant is like stepping back in time and gives you an idea of what French restaurants were like in Los Angeles in the 50's and even earlier. I doubt there are currently any restaurants in France that are like this one on Sunset Blvd. The dining rooms here are mostly large and unattractive---like a catering hall rather than a romantic French bistro. There are no windows. The service is more like Musso & Frank's on Hollywood Blvd---businesslike and efficient. No charm! Also, the food at Taix is not very good by today's high standards of cuisine. My meal was full of thick cream sauce and overly salted. Taix may be an LA landmark, but it's dining experience is more like Denny's than an elegant French restaurant.
A nice place to have dinner (or supper) after a Dodgers game, while the freeway traffic subsides! Minutes from the stadium and the 101.
However, the 2 times we went there, I wasn't overly impressed with the food. It's decent, but based on the reviews I read, I expected better.
