"Try it if you have never been..."

We had dinner at The Odeon to meet my daughter's boyfriend's parents from Philadelphia. They just loved the food and our server was very nice and helpful. Fresh salmon tartar and fresh fluke were my choices. I asked the hostess how long she worked there and she said 13 years. I always have a great meal here. Plenty of choices for everyone's diet. Nice wine and beer selection. Try it if you have never been and visit again if you haven't been in a while!

"Such a wonderful place"

I haven't been to Odeon in a few years and I'm so glad we went back. Had a wonderful lunch there, great service, great table, great atmosphere and great food. Odeon is an oldie but a goodies, and wears its years very well. The bar is still awesome, the whole place is welcoming, alive and all around just great. I love going for a late afternoon lunch, sharing a nice bottle of rosé and just hanging out, enjoying the food, the people and the place.

"Just a great classic"

Have never been disappointed - it's so great, you just have to go and try it! It is an American-French bistro, but that title does not do it justice. It's 'old school' but is still so fresh and charming and at the same time a nice amount of bustle and people-watching.
