Thank goodness the food was good.
I'm a little disappointed as I don't have the names of the dishes. I asked the woman in charge of our group (78 total) but she said it is a special dinner they only put on for French classes coming in for their field trips. DQ had the menu but it was on the back of the permission slip that she needed to turn back in. It was $25 a person-probably wasted a bit on DQ, but I enjoyed almost all of it.

This is the first time I had ever tried French Onion soup. Very good, a little salty
Starting on the upper left was the potato dish. I was really disappointed in this. I love potatoes-all forms except potato salad. I think it had fennel and dill in it-not a fan of either and those flavors overpowered the dish. Next to that is the chicken. It was good, but it was chicken. It had a creamy sauce over it. There is the baguette, then the beef dish. This was awesome. It was bite size pieces in a sauce with wine, onions and mushrooms. I hate mushroom and picked them out, but this beef melted in your mouth and I could pick them out. Then the salad. It was good, but again it was leaves of different types of lettuce. My daughter found it quite funny that they didn't have French dressing...at a French restaurant. Then she found out that they don't really have that type of dressing there, they use more of a vinaigrette. French is the only type that she likes.
This one got a little bright. It was some type of pastry shell that was stuffed with ice cream and covered with chocolate sauce on one side and strawberry sauce on the other. It was frozen solid. The pastry shells were hard as bricks even after letting them sit awhile and were flavorless. I hate strawberries (unless it is in my cocktail) and ice cream and tried to scrape it off. Didn't work, so only ate the chocolate side. I was hoping for something a little more from the dessert.
And the wine was awfully darn good once I got it in my belly.
