Do you love French food? We do too, and that's why we dedicate ourselves to finding the best places to enjoy French cuisine in Fort Lauderdale. Sometimes chain restaurants just don't suffice, and the desire for the unique and delicious French food can only satisfy. Well, surrounding you are some of the finest French restaurants in South Florida, all of them run by some of the finest French chefs with well-known names and equally well-known reputations. We at 10Best have diligently scouted out these top eateries, and we've listened to our readers and their reviews of Fort Lauderdale restaurants. We share the places that get great buzz, like Wilton Manor's fun and friendly Le Patio and a Las Olas favorite, St. Tropez Bistro. We showcase the ever-popular Sage French Cafe and Lighthouse Point's Le Bistro Restaurant. We have listed those that have proven themselves over time, like La Bonne Crepe and the legendary Cafe de Paris, and 33rd & Dine. Then there is the lovely and out-of-the-way La Creperie, perfect for a quiet dinner any time of the week. And don't forget the truly unique Dania Beach favorite, Le Petit Cafe. We also want to point out good neighborhoods for French restaurants in Fort Lauderdale - Downtown, for instance, and a few welcoming neighboring  suburbs. Ft. Lauderdale is an exciting city with so many of these hidden gems. So when the craving hits, and it certainly will, we'll make sure you get your French fix!
