Outstanding menu, hard to go wrong. Features filet cuts with various wonderful sauces. Chateaubriand is excellent as well. Portions are not enormous, but it doesn't matter as everything is almost routinely so good. Service is outstanding from veterant waiters, but can be lackidaisical if you don't get one.

Escargot and Cociel St. Jaque are delicious, as is the French Onion soup. Salads are a bit iffy, particularly the house salad.

Prices are high, but not exorbinant, and your chances of getting a superior meal is nearly assured.

Le Figaro is truly one of the best restaurants in the Quad Cities but often overlooked and overshadowed by the larger, high volume joints. A safe bet to get a very good meal.

Eaten here for 20+ years and never had a bad meal.

Rachid and Therese are wonderful folk. Save room for the Creme Carmel or Merangue Glace.

I love the lobster bisque...so creamy! Chicken bastilla, the spring salad w/ warm bacon dressing. The chateaubriand with béarnaise sauce, and don't forget the meringue glacee to top it all off! Yum!

While the District may be known more for its vibrant nightlife scene, there are actually a few excellent restaurants located here as well. Le Figaro, which serves a fine French menu in a semi-elegant setting, is one such place. The large mural depicting the Eiffel Tower's 1989 Centennial leaves little doubt as to what type of cuisine the restaurant serves, and most of the tables in the seating area are positioned to face the action on Second Avenue, giving them a street side, Parisian feel. Many locals recommend one of the Sp?©cialit?©s Maison (an excellent filet mignon for two; or a grilled beef, lamb and pork plate). However, more adventurous diners will want to sample escargot, Veal Oscar or Denver Sole. Excellent wine list. Reservations are necessary.
