We've been coming here for years and it's been going downhill. They used to have excellent food and service under the watchful eyes of the owners. The piles of excellent pastries in the entry are gone. A double espresso was more like a strong coffee with no crema. We also had omelets on this visit, the salmon was strong and... More

My partner and I were sightseeing downtown and happened upon this quaint bistro. The food was awesome and was equally matched by the impeccable service provided by our server Teresa Will. She was so personable and accommodating.....even offered to take our picture while we were waiting for our food. As I told her afterwards.....sometimes everything falls into place at the... More

Food was incredible. Service was impeccable, our waiter was very attentive and friendly. Eggs Benedict and eggs in a basket were delicious. Would definitely stop in again. Must have flaky chocolate croissant reminded me of Paris.

Truly 5 star food and service in a lovely quaint atmosphere. Chef Jean creates masterpieces with every dish. From the appetizers, soups and salads to the entrees, each spoonful is a wonderful creation of flavor. The staff is exceptionally friendly, especially Sari, the hostess. The service is excellent, always checking on us. Chef Jean took the time to come talk... More

Strolking downtown St. Augustine, we decided to try this "French" bistro. Big disappointment. We ordered the Pork Shank and the Poulet Au Gratin. To sum it up: 1. Very very very slow service with no explanation or apology...did the waiter forget to put in our order? 2. "French" atmosphere was not so French. If they would substitute the American rock... More

This is a slice of France in St. Augustine. Food and service were wonderful. The owner/chef came by to say hello and made us feel very welcome. My husband and son had the pork and and I ordered the chefs special. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We ate here last Friday and enjoyed our food and service was good so we decided to reserve a table for our last night of vacation tonight. What a disappointment . The wait staff were more interested in one another than serving the two occupied tables. The food was ok but nothing special and my husbands seafood pasta did not... More

This is a quaint little bistro that offer top quality food. We did lunch there. The sandwiches were excellent the mini salad that came with it was fresh and tasty. For desert we had a cherry cobbler that was a TRUE cobbler. Fresh, made right there still warm. No added gooey sugar just cherries and a really good pie crust.... More
