About French Connection Bistro
Welcome to the French Connection Bistro.
Established in 1986, The French Connection is a traditional, French café bistro. We serve individually prepared, fresh, French-style dishes, using high quality ingredients. This intimate, classic café bistro offers vibrant breakfast, lunch dining and transforms into a romantic, boutique, restaurant for full à la carte evening dining. Our menus change regularly to reflect the seasonal availability of produce and for a special experience we offer occasional themed evenings, focussing on regional dishes from all corners of France. Our head chef has over 24 years’ experience here in our own kitchen and will cook each dish with attention to detail in accordance with the highest traditions of French Cuisine.
Unlike most traditional French restaurants, we offer an excellent selection in vegetarian dishes and can cater for all dietary requirements. In complete harmony with our French counterparts we offer a great flexibility in child portions, to enable families to eat together.
We were looking for a last minute quiet meal on a Saturday night, so glad we chose French Connection. Ben and the staff made us feel so welcome. The menu although not large had something for everyone the food was fresh seasonal great quality and cooked to perfection. We had Pork, beef and Steak for mains and a selection of deserts. A really nice touch was Ben visiting each table and discussing the Bistros ethos, as the menu has new items added as produce comes into season we Shane returning very soon.
Excellent as usual!
Lovely atmosphere and fantastic food.
Great evening. Many thanks.
Limited menu, not much choice. Pricing structure is devisive suggesting reasonably priced meals but which you find need to be propped up with side orders that make it an expensive night out. Quality of food is very good. Atmosphere is poor due to only 6 diners in. After 30 years of patronage we will not be rushing back
Hi Might be worth upgrading the ladies toilet, it was a bit cold and loo didn't flush too good Food and drink fabx

Great staff friendly atmosphere excellent food
A large party of us for breakfast,well looked after and quite a few converts who had not been there before and will now be returning. Great staff,superb food .
Lovely simple food with great service
Lovey food would defiantly return
The food was tepid and over seasoned and had to be sent back. The waitress was dismissive when I explained about my food. Hugely disappointing as it used to be such a lovely bistro with delicious food - sadly it’s not the case now!
Lovely food and wine and excellent value for money.
The service was dreadful. We had two courses and bread to start and we had to ask for everything as it wasn’t appearing. That’s from the water to the bread to the wine. What a shame as I have loved this place for over 35years. The food was lovely but it’s almost as though the heart had been removed from the place. No sign of a figurehead; just two waiting staff who took 3 hours to complete our service. My first visit to the ‘new look ‘French Connection and it was impersonal and flat.
Food was nice, staff and service excellent, a nice evening with friends.
Very disappointing. We had booked a table for four people weeks and weeks ago and I have to say we won't be rushing back. Not a great menu choice, the a l carte menu wasn't available the night we had booked (would've been nice if someone had told us before we turned up). Starter was lovely though. Main courses all came very different size portions even though we all had same main and they all had to be sent back as only luke warm. Couldn't fault the service but overall the food wasn't great.
Quality of food was lovely could have done with being a little bit warmer though. Service was great, the new owner has definitely improved the place.
Great food Refurbished to a high standard Attentive, helpful staff A restaurant that Stourbridge needs
The sauce for steak was very good
Lovely atmosphere with fine food and wine, served by friendly knowledgable staff. Bar area at front has opened up the space nicely for pre food drinks.
Perfect french bistro atmosphere, small and cosy! Took my mom for her birthday meal and it was absolutely fantastic. Warm welcome and service was great, food was outstanding. Majority of us had the beef fillet, so good we asked where it was from (the manager was very knowledgable and it was interesting to hear the source of their meat). Will definitely be revisiting!!
Excellent as always!
Delicious as always!
another great meal - très bien merci
