Been here many times and it never fails. Very good food. Very tasteful atmosphere. Pick between the bar side or the dining room.

With every bite of each food selection we tasted came an OMG. I am convinced that the head chef here has sold his soul to the devil... the food here is that good. Don't hesitate. Food this good should be illegal.

Hidden behind the bandstand in the center of town is this small French restaurant. A little pricy with not overly generous portions as with most fine French restaurants. Most of the clientele seemed to be regulars and every one new each other. We felt like the strangers that we in fact were. That being said, the service and food was... More

Intimate, small bistro with good food. The rosemary infused olive oil and warm breads start you off. You can't go wrong with the fish chowder and fish selections are cooked to perfection and served up beautifully. Scallops are tender and succulent. Desserts are presented attractively but the main courses are the stars of the menu.

We had discovered this little hide away place on a trip this past June. I went with my son and my husband and enjoyed the food very much. While on vacation in August, my husband and I decided we wanted to go back as we enjoyed our first visit so much. We were not disappointed. The waiters and waitresses were... More

For many reasons I can't explain, this was one of the nicest, most relaxed, pleasurable dining experiences I've had in a very, long, time! Craig (spelling unsure) was our waiter last night. Service was nearly perfect and we had cocktails before our meal, and wine with dinner. Both drinks were well prepared and exactly what I expected. We ordered the... More

Delicious, fresh, perfectly prepared Seafood Port Fino, a regular menu item, and a New Orleans Gumbo special. We were warmly greeted at the door, our server was considerate and friendly, and the cozy restaurant and bar were comfortable. All of the seafood was perfectly cooked and super fresh and our calamari appetizer, entrees, and creme brûlée dessert reflected great attention... More

Yes, a hidden gem worth the effort. The owner(s) captured the feeling of a French Bistro with European flair. The atmosphere was chic, comfortable, and cozy, with only about 10-12 tables. Beautifully decorated interior. I had the Steak & Shrimp Blue Grass, with tenderloin medallions, mushrooms, and a delicate sauce on the grilled shrimp. My wife had the Seafood Porto... More

Located in the depot and surrounded by quaint shops it was inviting. The plank salmon was delicious, the special Citrus salmon was nice but might have been a "Wow" if Blood oranges were used. The scallops good. The desserts were excellent. It included their "Samores" ; Flourless Chocolate Cake; and poached pear. Needs work on handicap access - going in... More

1st time at the bistro, was intrigued by all the reviews. The food spot on. From our appetizer of escargot to the steak/lobster scampi and portabella fillet mignon. The price was a little steeper than we realized even with our $25 restaurant .com certificate. Our waitress seemed new as she was unsure of a few things. The dining room itself... More
