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

Great little bakery and restaurant we found for a late dinner in downtown St. Augustine. They have a nice selection of French favorites and Theresa and Ellis made us feel like guests of honor. The kids devoured the Chicken Au Gratin. A very nice alternative to the multitude of burger and sandwich spots in the area.

Well, my intention was just to stop in for a dessert, and check out the menu for a future visit. What can I say?- I'm a sweet freak. Walnut pear cobbler. Good stuff. Staff is very cool and welcoming. Jerelle waited on me as if I was having a meal, and was nice. Plan to go there for the whole... More

This restaurant serves real french dishes, but it's not fancy. When we were there, there were not many other patrons because it's summer and hot. We had good service, the food was very good but too much for us to eat even though we skipped the starter course and desert. We will eat there again, maybe for lunch or to... More

Chef Jean Stephane Poinard has put together a menu that would make Julia Child very happy. Chef Poinard has captured a touch of Europe and certainly a 'taste of France'. The menu is a refreahing addition to St. Augustine with great inspiration perfected from his French home cuisine,"la cuisine de meres'. Great specials everyday and his staff is very attentive...

Friday night, two couples, meandering around and found this pretty nice gem - small but still a gem. Had a chef's special for $25 which included soup, entree, dessert and a glass of wine. Rest of the menu had variety with decent prices. We were served by Jerell and she did the right things in explaining the dishes, accommodating a... More

My mother and I ate here this evening. Absolutely delicious! The food looked beautiful and tasted amazing. We had the beet and goat cheese salad, escargot, the cheese plate and of course one of their AMAZING desserts! Bottom line: great food and great service. A must in St. Augustine.
