Fine dining at its best! Great food and service!

I love this small town restaurant that cooks everything special. Nothing frozen, everything cooked to order, only certain dishes cooked each day. They make everything from scratch. The soup..I got the "vegetable" soup which is called the "legume" soup....to die for! Like a creamed asparagus... read more

Our waiter, Alaine (Alan, Big Al), started the whole evening off with all of the panache you would expect in a french restaurant. A native of Quebec, his description of the specials was peppered with a soupcon of the artist within. We enjoyed every morsel of our food! We were treated to the soup du jour which was a creme...

This small hidden strip mall restaurant is quite the adventure for those willing to accept the challenge. My husband and I have been here twice in the last month and quite frankly, will probably be going again before too long. To start with there are only about 10 to12 tables in this sweet romantic white table cloth establishment. The decor... More

While this is definitely an adult restaurant, we did go there with our kids who are teenagers. This restaurant does not cater to kids, but it worked perfect for us this night. Getting through to a person on the phone was not easy, I had been trying for weeks and only got a full voice mail that would not allow... More

Loved the service and the food. Forgot to tell waiter I was lactose intolerant until dessert and he was concerned. Prices were very reasonable for fine dining!

Like all hidden gems, this amazing restaurante is not easy to spot. No neon signs, no big windows. Just a fantastic restaurante that rewards the curious minds that venture into it. Great wine list and very few items on the menu, all prepared to perfection. Sober decor and french accents transport you to Europe in a heartbeat. Daniel and Alain... More

This is a multi course, price fixed, fine dining experience. The chef was Paris trained and the atmosphere is subdued and for those who take food seriously. Make reservations and plan to spend a couple hours at least. The menu is fixed - you get to choose between one or two items and it comes with 4-5 courses. Make sure... More

Chef Daniel created an exceptional meal for our anniversary! The meal, the ambiance and the service were flawless. Authentic, sublime French cooking at it's best. If you're a foodie, this is your place. No jeans or collarless shirts allowed. Dress up, old school as befits such a delightful experience. We can't wait to come back!

The room is a little small. It appeared as if they staggered the seating so the single waiter and kitchen staff could give close attention to all their guests. My guess is a later reservation would get the best service though there was nothing wrong with the earlier service. There were two soups so 2 onions and 2 veggie purees-they... More
