A simple menu and delicious food! What more can one ask for! Will surely return! The steak and frittes was excellent with a very good tenderloin in lieu of a strip cut...desserts are delicious too!

Our first visit was great - this time rather disappointing. I had the seafood pasta - the red sauce was flavorless and while the shrimp tasted good - the scallops and calamari were flavorless. Service still good and hubby's churrasco was flavorful - so giving three stars instead of two. Will come back but only for meat, never seafood again.... More

Don't be fooled this place is not a French restaurant, I was born and raised in Paris so I have some experience in French cuisine !!! The owner is Argentinian and the menu is all but French. If you look for a French restaurant go to cafe Pastis in Sunset Staff is nice, menu is reasonably priced but not French,... More

We have been meaning to come here for a long time and then we got a Groupon discount via email so we came to give it a try! The decor is French bistro and even better it was peaceful, and classy and the Beatles background music was just that - background music! Lovely atmosphere and a nice change from all... More

This is not a french bistro, but a very good -not fancy- argentinian restaurant. Other than the unfortunate naming, this is a good, fairly priced argentinian eatery, (milanesa: breaded veal/chicken, which my argentinian wife thinks is the best in town), churrasco (steak), etc. Their lunch prices are very, very fair. If you want bigger sizes, you can opt for the... More

For about $12, I had the early bird special, French Chicken. It was a 5 course meal. First they served a delicious garden salad, followed by a cup of piping hot lentil soup, baguettes, my entree, French Chicken, and for dessert chocolate ice cream. All this for about $12. The food was delicious. The French Chicken came with potatoes and... More

The house salad dressing was watery and just made the salad soggy. Bread and pesto were fine. The shrimp and mushrooms Crepes were disappointing. The two Crepes had a total of 6 thumb nail size frozen shrimp. There was a complete lack of flavor. The chicken parm was fair. Service was spotty.

Have been driving by this place for years and never checked them out. Well today was our first visit and I must say why haven't we been here before. This place is a gem with delicious food and great service. Will definitely be back again."Bon Appetit"
