French Bistro Comfort Mat is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 651.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking and functional Love the mat, we saw it at a place where we were house-sitting and tracked it down easily. I got the biggest one and it reaches across my DW, sink and part of the counter. I wouldn't think of putting it in the washing machine, I cleaned it with a we soapy cloth yesterday (dried in the sun/breeze) and seemed to get rid of some patches of stain/dirt in the areas where there is writing (although they blend pretty well!)

I very satisfied with them. They’re attractive, easy to clean, durable, and are great comfort for my feet. I highly recommend them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bistro Menu I purchased this comfort mat to protect my knees and my husband's ankles. It is doing a great job of easing the pain of preparation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mat - looks good; feels good! I've had a few of these mats over the years, and continue to buy them because they look great and provide cushioning for standing in the kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this mat! I am now ordering my fourth mat. I have used the large French Bistro mat in my kitchen for years. As any such comfort mat would, it begins to look a little worn around the edges after a couple of years. I always reorder the same mat as I love the way it looks, and it is so comfortable by my kitchen sink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I can't tell you how much I love this mat! I find myself taking extra trips to the kitchen just to get a glimpse of this beauty, and boy is it comfortable. I'm going to order another one for our dogs bowls. Go ahead and buy this mat, you won't regret it for one second!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this mat ! This is my second mat . It is wonderful ! Not too thick , the large fits perfectly on the sink, dishwasher side of my kitchen. The only thing I would recommend is not putting it in washing machine to clean, even though the directions recommend it. I just wet wipe it with a cloth.
Date published: 2018-07-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best comfort mat ever I bought one of these mats several years ago and washed it several times and it held up beautifully. We moved to a new home and I just bought two more,one for the sink area and one for the stove area. The only thing I learned was to be careful of the edges as the graphics are a thin sheet glued to the mat. I won’t wash it in the machine again,just wipe it down with a cloth. They looks great in my kitchen and I receive many compliments on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and very charming! I've had one in my kitchen for 3 years and it's durable, comfortable to stand on (there aren't any balance issues standing on it like some sponge type mats) and it's unique and charming. I get lots of compliments on it. After 3 years it's got some stains on it from spills and I'm ordering another one and a third one as a spare. It's perfect in my kitchen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and comfortable! This is the second one I purchased! I bought this large mat several years ago and finally had to replace due to normal wear and tear. That’s how much I like it!!
Date published: 2018-02-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very attractive I bought this for my kitchen in front of the sink. It is very attractive and has a nice finish - if you spill something on it you can easily just wipe it off with a wet rag.
Date published: 2018-02-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful and Fun I am a big fan and wish I bought this mat for my last apt. It is perfect and keeps me from sliding around on the slippery floor. It absorbs the water splatter by the sink nicely. And the French menu theme is just fun for people to read when they visit. I did not encounter the odor that others mentioned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this rug. Looks great and helps my back and legs in front of the sink. I may buy another to put by the stove. Thank you Ballard Design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great support and in an attractive package! It is the right size and provides support for my knees and feet while standing over the kitchen sink. I like the color and design and it seems to be well made. I am pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect kitchen mat Purchased this item in the longer length for in front of kitchen sink area and loved it so much purchased another for in front of stove. This mat has a great cushion, cleans well, and stays put. I like this better than others I've purchased as it's thin enough you don't trip over it and yet thick enough to cushion long hours cooking or cleaning. Also, the design is subdued enough that your mat is not the focal point of your kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I ordered 2 of these for my kitchen to go on hardwood floors. The contrast with the wood added a whole new dimension and they look fabulous! Even better than expected and well worth the cost. Oh yes, and quite comfortable too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second mat I have had this mat for several years and now it needs to be replaced. I'm getting the very same mat because I love it so much. It's attractive, easy to clean, comfortable and fits really well in my galley kitchen. A great piece!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I am very pleased with this purchase. It has made food preparation in my kitchen more comfortable. I used to have very tired legs, feet while doing dishes, preparing food. I especially like the larger sizes available, not the usual small square size available in other places. I also like the lovely script in French. It is attractive to look at. Also it's easy to clean. Love it. Great addition to my kitchen

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Total Comfort ! The look is very chic ; the soft feel is amazing under my feet. It also matches the fancy shaped blackboard I got from Ballard a year ago ! Great gift item too ! Very pleased...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish comfort I bought two of these mats to go in front of the stove and the sink. They provide comfort and are very stylish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like the "real" thing Looks just like a menu chalkboard at a French cafe. Thick rubber provides comfort while standing on it. Does have expected (but strong) rubber odor when first opened; have left it out of carton for 2 weeks and is much better. This is a gift not yet given; I hope the recipient likes it as much as i do!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant and very comfy! Good value for the money and the chalkboard 'print' has some watermarks on it, which are perfect for hiding stains until you can get to them.
