Everything we had was delicious, especially the fondue. The fondue was rich and filling so we had salads as our main meals. Both were fresh, unique, and tasty. Bread basket and, of course, croissants came home with us for breakfast next day. We hope to return when next in the area.

I saw another review that said that this was a jewel in Rockville Center. It truly is. Food was delicious and inspired, service were impeccable and the ambiance is very charming, very romantic. We will definitely be returning here.

This is an intimate jewel in the heart of Rockville Centre, serving an eclectic selection of inspired creations, beautifully presented & absolutely delicious. We were greated with fresh flowers on our table & a bread basket including warm melt in your mouth zucchini scones & corn bread. The meal was paced somewhat slowly, but this may have been a function... More

This place has been a romantic treat for myself and my boyfriend since we started dating 4 years ago, and it's always amazing and lovely. Usually, we come for dinner (the tea soaked skirt streak is one of the best things I EVER ate - there breads are also worth noting: crunchy French baguettes, addicting carrot cake-like bread and delectable...

Great little restaurant, only seats 20 or so people. Maybe 10 tables. Great fresh food, nice menu, intimate service. A real ladies lunch spot. Take your time and relax. Everyone will enjoy. I bring my mom here once a month. Always a great meal. Reservations are a must!

My 14 yr. old daughter and I wanted to have afternoon tea. We were looking for a cute, authentic place were we could get the whole tea experience, with little desserts like scones and finger sandwiches and tea. We also didn't want to have to drive so far and this place was only 15 minutes away. I was a little... More

I met a friend here for lunch. It has about 10 tables and the tables were all decked out with white linen tablecloths and floral china plates. The decor is very cozy and "homey" and the food was great! I had the beef bourginone (spelling??) My friend had the quiche. We both enjoyed our meal and I then pigged out... More

This was our first time at this small quaint cozy cafe. It has appx. 10 tables. We did have a reservation. Our appetizers were the mussels in wine, pretzel pizza with chicken & beef barley soup. Not a crumb or drop of soup was left! The main course we had was: salmon with honey mustard coating, skirt steak, filet mignon... More
