On parle français.

Only French is spoken at the French House so you’re guaranteed some great conversation with your meal. We are first and foremost an educational institution, so even if your French is limited, there’s a space for you. We welcome people of all levels of French. If you do not speak French but are accompanying a group that does, please don’t worry. We’ll make you feel at home.

Have a seat here and enjoy a great view of Lake Mendota with your French House dinner or lunch.
