We went for dinner with a Living Social voucher. Really weren't sure what to expect, sine there seemed to be many strongly positive reviews and many strongly negative ones. Our experience was perfectly positive. Both food and service were great. Nicoise Salad with Ahi Tuna was excellent. The Spanish Dip wasn't outstanding, but the arepas chips were great. Too bad...

i like the evening ambiance. This is a well established local bar high end and classy. Needs to have a relaxed setting after a long day at work, or a date to impress.

Went here because it advertised itself as a French restaurant. However it was really more of a sports bar with a very limited amount of "bar" food. We all had the pork which was not good-tasted more like cold ham. Fried chicken appetizer was good. Would not recommend and would never go back.

We ordered the three course California cuisine dinner with champagne for two ($92 value). I understand that multi-course meals have smaller portions for each course, but these portions were really small. We left hungry even though we had dessert. The fish in the spicy ahi tartare was not very fresh and the sauce they used just tasted like a seasoned... More

Great food. They just recently changed the menu and it is not bad. The ambience is great and the drinks are reasonable. The only flaw is that when the bartender has he's freinds over, he'll forget about the costumers and just cater to hes friends

I ordered the fried chicken which was greasy and my wife told me later that her chicken thigh was not properly cooked but didn't want to ruin the dinner for the... More
