I had the lobster ravioli which was average and improved with addition of shrimp on tomato slices. But the creme brule is the closest to that perfection I ate in the south of France. It is light and fresh and the crust was done perfectly. All the other creme brules I've had in the last 15 years in the US... More

The ambiance was Nice and bistro style. The galic-pesto oil that came with the bread was extremely nice and the people are very friendly.

Interesting menu but we stuck with lobster ravioli for me and a corkscrew chicken pasta dish for my wife. Chicken a bit bland and she said too much garlic in the sauce for her. I tasted it and it was fine for me. My ravioli had a rose sauce (I prefer white or red) that was not bad and three... More

We had a dinner for four, outside, and each enjoyed a different entree. I had the gyro dinner, which had large portions, with yummy rice. My children each different pasta dishes, all large and very good. Good, attentive service too.

Fun atmosphere and a nice location, but the food was just not very good. Even the hummus was bland. I could handle the food if the price matched, but this restaurant is very over-priced. I would not recommend this place for lunch or supper. You can find something better for your money.

The restaurant has wonderful outside seating with heaters for colder nights. The food was not great, and quite expensive.
