Returned after 5 years. Expectations were high based on our last memorable meal. It's was good but expensive for the quality and presentation. I feel like they have lost a step. Crowded as ever. Our waiter was great. Based on our visit this time, very few French eat here. Next visit I'll look for another option

So much good to say -- service, food, ambience. Our waiter was attentive and considerate; he balanced the leisurely Eoropean pace with a US pace, allowing our family a great night out without feeling either pressured or delayed. Every menu item was fresh, well prepared, and delicious. Though the tables are tight, we felt comfortable and alone. We will go... More

I visited with a group of around a dozen from my work. We had a excellent time and the food was superb. I had cod, which I'm quite picky about, and it was exactly as it should be, cooked to perfection and served with well-prepared and tasty vegetables that fit the fish perfectly without overwhelming it.

Have walked by this place 1000 times and have always wanted to try it, well I did the other night and was not disappointed. We sat outside, the weather and the atmosphere were perfect in the courtyard. There were 4 of us and they were able to seat us easily, surprising for a Saturday night - but it was early.... More

This place is so charming. We were greeted and shown the menu on a large chalk board. We had three courses and they were all fantastic!

Excellent french food served by friendly staff in a pleasant bistro is the best way to descibe our dining experience. We had heard about this bistro and after checking trip advisor decided to try it for lunch. The duck confit was perfect, accompanied by beautifully cooked potatoes and wilted lettuce. My wife had the ile flottante for dessert and it... More

This is a great choice if one is really in the mood for classic French bistro fare. The escargots were deliciously buttery and garlicly, the steak equally well prepared, and the deserts were all one could hope for. The wine list is broad in its offerings from around France with a number of special occasion choices as well. The service... More
