Having returned from Paris we wanted to try the only purportedly French bistro around. In France our bistro meals were relatively inexpensive (especially the wine) and served well. This restaurant with its white table cloths and high (especially the wine) prices might be somewhere you would choose to go for a special dinner. The food here is less than memorable... More

I booked the private room for my sister's bridal shower in August. The original person I had contact with left, but it wasn't an issue at all. The manager ended up to be in-charge. He was so easy to deal with from the start to finish. The food, wine, and cocktails are superb, the ambiance is perfect for an intimate... More

We stopped by for an early dinner and were surprised by the quality and choices of wines. The limited selection is so well organized that it would be surprising if you did not find, or were recommended, a wine that fits your palate and matches your meal perfectly. We have, since this first experience, returned many times and always were... More

Although located in a shopping mall, this place has enough ambiance to make you overlook the surrounding stores. We celebrated Bastille Day early although this restaurant had nothing special going on for the Saturday prior to July 14th. I ordered 2 appetizer plates (the pate and cheese) as my lunch and my wife got the La Provencale crepe. We split... More

The crepes and salads are really nice. The food is very fresh and excellent. Certainly worth re-visiting if one is in this area.

The bar is very nice and, during the summer months, the outdoor dining section, while a tad loud caused by nearby traffic, is quite enjoyable. The "monsieur" sandwich is most tasty; good wine selection and good service. One of my local faves!

We have dined here many times. Tonite was not great. I ordered the kobe burger with frites for $19. Ordered it medium. What i got was the driest overdone burger i have EVER eaten. My husband wanted me to send it back, but honestly i didn't feel like making an issue over it. Hubby ordered a rare steak and his... More

Love the food. We weren't there for the wine and it seemed the bar was a little on the loud side. Service was good enough. Escargot is awesome! Not into Foie Gras - nothing is good enough to torture an animal for.

We ate here recently for a friend's birthday. We were a few couples, not a big group. The service was alright though not as professional as one would expect. This is a restaurant that cannot seem to decide if it wants to be white linen formal, or corner bakery casual and something seems to be lost in the process. I... More

We visited with another couple and had a wonderful meal. We sat in the bar area, where there was a singer. The atmosphere was great. I think we tried all the small plates they offer! Our service was excellent.
