This place is now closed. Really snotty attitude by the wait staff and just ok food. The last time we went there they refused to honor our reservation.

We were not impressed. Had a breakfast here. Not very tasty, quite expensive. Slow and not very friendly service at all. Will not come back.

This is a neighborhood establishment which serves very good French food. The owner-chef is in the kitchen preparing delicious variations on classic French cuisine. Home baked breads, nice wine list, attentive service. The restaurant is casual with outside seating that is quieter than the interior. Prices are high but worth it.

I'm torn about Maison Giraud. The food is good, sometimes very good (like the duck fillet & the chocolate souffle) and so too is the service, both better than you can find in many an LA eatery. But... I know what Alain Giraud, chef & owner of Maison Giraud, can do. I was a huge fan of Anisette, the phenomenal... More

Love going to the local Pacific Palisades restaurant, Maison Giraud, on Swarthmore. It's a locals favorite and has been for years. We enjoy breakfast or brunch here - usually the Eggs Benedict or Croque Madame. Nice! Hopefully it'll survive the gentrification of the area! Enjoy.....

Best spot on the street for breakfast or brunch especially on the fun weekend market days. Eat inside or even better, out on the sidewalk in the sunshine. Great choice of menu selections. Pleasant and attentive servers. Our fav is the Croque Monsieur or Madame with iced tea! Yum. Enjoy a la Francaise. ....

Maison is brilliant for breakfast/brunch. The best croissants and blueberry danish ever! Dinner is somewhat limited, but with a marvelous chocolate souffle nobody leaves unhappy. The tragedy here is that the street is being closed down for massive remodel and Maison is now the last restaurant standing and we don't know for how long. Stop by early and often, this... More

We found his restaurant by visiting the organic farmers market on Sundays. We decided that the next time in town we would sit and have brunch. So glad we did. They open at 8am on Sundays so if you get there early enough you can get a seat outside. Great for people watching. My friend was here many months ago... More

Loved breakfast at this small bistro in Pacific Palisades. Amazing breads, croissants and good. We went 2 out of 3 mornings and can't wait to return
