The chef, Jacques, is French, too! So, a French dinner is a total delight and delicious. From your entry and seated by the host, you are in Paris again. First rate, all the way! The servings are generous and very gallic and gorgeous. One can sense the very taste of Paris in every plate. Have a great dinner (or lunch)... More

Some friends and I enjoyed a delicious meal here when visiting Monterrey in November 2014. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. The sommelier gave us wine recommendations that complemented our meals. It felt like enjoying an amazing meal in France! Don't miss this restaurant if you are in the area. Your stomach will thank you for it!

They put on a special dinner to welcome foie gras back to the tables in California. 5 delicious courses all including foie gras in each. A classic plated meal, exceptional balance with perfect seasoning. The sauces were amazing. Wines by Richard Oh. This is truly a must dine in restaurant with or without foie gras. Make your reservations now.

Beautiful decor, friendly staff, great service and the food was fantastic. The wine list is impressive and help was offered to chose a bottle to go with the food we ordered. We were not familiar with most of the wines, so this was appreciated. Upon request my son gave an upper limit for what he was willing to spend, which... More

We enjoyed our meal. Service was pleasant and efficient. The food was very good and is worth the 4 stars given. We had a brief but cordial conversation with the owner when he came out to walk the front. All in all, a good experience.
