Perfect Romantic Dinner location with a French twist

Had a really delicious dinner. Prix fixe menu requires that you have dessert, which is also delicious.

Researching tripadvisor for restaurants in a nearby neighborhood, I came across this fairly new restaurant. It definately meets and exceeds the things that other contributors had to say. It's a small, intimate place that has tables both inside and out. The ambience is cozy with an "ocean" theme suitable for the mostly seafood based cuisine. We were reading the menu... More

We were very excited to finally find a wonderful seafood restaurant where the seafood is not battered and deep fried. The new owner, Edith, is an absolute joy. We started with the escargo, which was a wonderful new twist on the snail - not smothered in garlic butter - but a refreshing start of the evening, as well as the... More

don't let its small size fool you, it's big on taste! Everything we ate burst with flavor. From the fresh baked olive bread to the final desert, a great evening. Appetizer of escargot and a tomato, mozzarella, basil salad with balsamic and a smattering of pesto, wow that pesto works wonders. Entree was fantastic braised catch of the day and... More

I loved the food the owners are very nice, small place but all in quality from the service to the desserts home made. I highly recommend this place, they have excellent choice of wines and on monday I also love to bring my bottle of Chassagne Montrachet no corkage fee....Cheers!

We are regulars and love this place. Consistently freshest fish. The Tuna Bolognese is one of my favorite dishes anywhere in the world. The new French owner has made it even better- she is a super pastry chef.
