The food is exceptional. The atmosphere is lovely and quaint. Our server, France, is the best! We always sit in her section. She has a vast knowledge of wines and is very happy to assist you in choosing a wine to compliment your meal.....

I've been to this resto about 10 times and always loved it. I considered it one of my favorites in this city. A recent visit left me less than thrilled with the food. the service was great, the wine great, the ambiance marvelous still. But my meal lacked. One thing I detest in a restaurant is smelling the oil of... More

Been going to this restaurant for about 10 years now and yes the staff can be a bit cold but as the eveing progresses they really warm up and are very funny and talkative. The food is very French and always good. The wine list is fantastic, as they have many private imports and very affordable, fun evening out with... More

A true French experience. Faux Gras, 2 kinds of duck, cuisse de canard confit, canard breast sliced, a wonderful nutty green salad and Pinot Noir from the Bourgogne. A somewhat reserved waiter and high prices. I thought (for a moment) I was back in Paris!

She was also a good advisor in terms of recommending the proper level of cooking for the different types of meat. The restaurant did very well is serving all of us always at the same time. The...

Not far from downtown, this French restaurant might as well been Paris. We had a wonderful waitress that took pity on a couple from Texas that have about a 3 word french vocabulary. A wide selection of wonderful foods made the evening a memorable dining. A selection from steak to wild game to fish gave a wonderful challenge. White butter... More

Nice place. Good service but the plates are quite expensive for a small quantity. Wines are nearly only from France and are expensive. The salad or a soup is inclusive.

Dashed in here to avoid a sudden rain shower and were surprised with the best meal of the trip. The waitress was patient and explained the menu to us in English - not only translating but describing each dish. We sat and ate while enjoying a view of the streets. Very enjoyable experience.
