Any opinions on La Dijonaise in Culver City?

The menu seemed very reasonable, when I went. I got eggs benedict and the yolk were parfait. But please, tell me about lunch and dinner...

      Here's a quirk ... your search query (linked above) returns a result for THIS post!

      Sort of like a chicken and egg quandry with a dash of Twilight Zone feel ...

        This post among others about La Dij, of which there are many. Does no one use the search function anymore?

    2. We have dinner there often before going to the Jazz Bakery. Very good, especially for the prices. Excellent crepe florentine and super desserts. Their onion soup is one of the best around.

        I agree. For the price it's very good. I always get the steak frites which I believe is just under $15. I like the fact that it's lively without being a trendy scene.

      2. It's good. Not amazing, but definitely good, some dishes more than others. Actually, one of my favorite dishes there is the (near) titular dish: the poulet dijonaise -- a really nice but not too heavy mustard sauce smothering the chicken. The french dip is good. Warm goat cheese salad also good.

        1. Good and solid, not great.

          I would avoid the crab cakes, but the roasted chicken and bouillabaisse are solid choices.

          1. Not bad for the prices they charge. Had the Poulet Piccata -- it was tasty. Will definitely go back to try other dishes. Only wish the fries were of the shoestring variety.

              The biggest negative is the indifferent service. The food is good and reliable. Just keep in mind that the servers won't be great.
