Great decor, wonderful wine service. Happy to accommodate vegetarians. Ok service, depending on the night, but the bartenders are always good. Pasta dishes are excellent, always fresh ingredients.

Wonderful look and feel of this authentic French bistro in downtown Bridgeport. To bad the food is not as awesome to the atmosphere. Not bad... just not awesome. Grilled Romaine Salad... great! Steak Frites... not authentic. That being said, we'll be back to eat up the atmosphere.

Located right across from the bijou theatre, we were pleasantly surprised with the cozy ambience of this charming little French bistro. The house cab hit the spot and so did the parfaits. Food needs a little more refining.

This was my second visit. I had the Seared Scallop Chowder and the soup of the day. Both were outstanding. Very tasty. My only complaint is the size of the portions. Not surprised though since it's a french restaurant. Would be nice to add another 50%. I could have eaten twice the amount of chowder that I received. The waiter... More

The service is fantastic. The food is very very good as well, but menu a bit limited. Try the steak frites!

This place is a just one of those rare finds: amazing food, warm atmosphere, and a staff that makes you feel like family. Not to be missed, if you're local, or not so local. Worth the trip.

Although the menu is not strictly French, you will undoubtedly find something to please you at this cozy local bistro. Also missing is the uptight staff and snootiness that often accompanies pseudo French restaurants. This is a laid back warm and casual place with a real nice staff. The food is good, the wines carefully selected and reasonable and desserts... More

Food was beyond expectation as I didn't really care for the menu. The waiter was very helpful and steered us all in the right direction. Everyone was very happy with their meal. Duck, halibut, oysters, steak, pork chop - really - yum! Nice that they allow 1/2 portions. One sour note - the beans in one of the salads were... More

Great French bistro food, perfectly cooked in a well designed and comfortable space. Great service and a very good small wine list.
