We had been meaning to try this restaurant since it opened almost 2 years ago. A groupon was the perfect opportunity. We were not disappointed. The decor is sleek and sophisticated. The service was excellent. My husband had a salade niscoise and mussels in white wine. I enjoyed the special tuna dinner. They gladly substituted superb Belgium Frites for the... More

My husband and I just had a wonderful date night at this restaurant. This is the second time we went there and both occasions have been flawless! We arrived a bit earlier than our reservation to take advantage of the half price specials on beer and wine. The "Stella" was calling our names of course. There's nothing like prepping for... More

Dont let the outside fool you, lovely decor inside. We have tried most of the 12 types of mussels offered-love the curried (lightly curried with apples and parsley-just try it and dip your fries), the moutarde and cream, delightful, the asparagus with celery I was talked into but was a wonderful blend of flavors, garlic and creme, leeks and celery.....something...

We went for dinner last weekend, and the restaurant was somewhat empty for a Saturday night. The food was decent, fair price for what you are getting. Our waitress was quick and attentive. Overall, it was a good dinning experience.

The mussels were delicious....the remainder of our meal was not. Our main course selections left everything to be desired. The service was gracious.

I will say that the mussels are amazingly delicious. I did not like my salad. French onion soup was pretty good. There were only two waiters to serve a completely full restaraunt, which sits about 150 people. It was so understaffed it was ridiculous. Unfortunately this would be a wonderful place if it weren't for the 2 hours it took... More

Great service, terrific ambiance and wonderful food. What could be better. Even the vegetable sides are well prepared. Not inexpensive, but worth every penny of the almost expensive cost. Our party tried three different mussels preparations and each was really good. The fries are exceptionally good too and served in a paper cone in a wire sleeve - very attractive.... More
