Good food and elegant bar.

This is a good choice to have a non-chain restaurant meal. The service is good and the decor is pleasant. I found the limited menu with the lack of pictures a pleasure.

Great place to go for a special lunch with friends. The atmosphere is great for business lunches. The menu isn't too expensive and it is a special treat.

The food here is excellent - the best in town, and probably the best in the MBS area. In particular the desserts and pastries are fantastic. The menu changes regularly and always has interesting options. Service is excellent and the restaurant itself is nicely laid out and tastefully decorated. It's also by far the most expensive restaurant in town, so... More

The restaurant is streetside at The H Hotel. It is touted as a French-style cafe. We entered from the hotel and could hear the noise before we arrived. Acoustics do not lend to a quiet atmosphere, but everything else about this restaurant is excellent: the hostess, service, the menu selections, the food. Waitresses wore white shirts and black ties, spoke... More

Consistently delicious food and a great place in the summer to sit outside. They were very accomodating to special diets.

Though we were told it was like a trip to Paris, the only thing truly parisian about the place was the decor. The dishes were thoughtfully prepared. Service was acceptably unobtrusive. Dessert and coffee should be considered for late night enjoyment!

The food we have was excellent. Very delicious and the portion sizes are big. We had the Rueben ($13) and Turkey Club ($12). Service by Audrey was great. Never had to ask for a refill. The decor is very nice.

We have been here in a mid of a day on saturday, it was obviously empty and we clearly disrupted their slow time and preparations for the evening. Decor is chic pretending to be french provence type. For the US restaurant they prepared a nice cup of cafe latte, though far from a proper italian/french one. Desserts selection is great... More
