Yum!

This small café/bakery is a wonderful place to visit. We went for lunch and loved it. We had the homemade flower essence iced tea, French onion soup and quiche. They also have a large variety of food items to buy. We bought some jams and a wine bottle stopper. The chef/owner was very nice and... read more

Can not comment on their food. Went here specifically for the truffles and picked up a few tarts, pastries and macaroons. There were five of us who tasted the assorted items and some items were good, just nothing exceptional for our taste-buds. You really have to try the items for yourself to judge. For us, it will be a (1)... More

One of the best meals I have had on Staten island, and I have been here 50 years. If you are tired of Italian food or just steak, try this place. The chef is a true master. My wife and i each tried a selectiion from Laurent's menu, which was appetizer, main course, and dessert and were not disappointed. And... More

Unfortunately we never got to try anything. The sign on the door says they open at 9 am. We arrived at 8:30 and waited by 9:20 we were frigid and had to leave. Others came and went for the same reason. I was really disappointed, I've been wanting to go for a while. Probably won't return.

After enjoying breakfast and lunch previously finally had dinner and it did not disappoint! Our meals were perfectly cooked and the service was excellent. The menu has a wide variety of choices not typically found in a Staten Island restaurant. Didn't think we had room for desert but Laurent convinced us to try a small plate of chocolates, a perfect...

This is a great place that would have a three month waiting list if it were in Manhattan. If you came across this place in Paris, you would be happy. Fine food prepared by a very well trained chef. BYOB.

A return trip did not disappoint We were six people who ordered from regular menu and the tasting menu. The five course menu included crusty bread with chive butter, a appetizer choice...the baked goat cheese on greens was wonderful. This is followed by a fish choice, an entree choice,a cheese course and a dessert choice. Each was wonderful and allows... More

Returned for brunch -the raspberry crepes are mouthwatering and my croque madame was delicious -bechamel sauce is amazing. Brought a raspberry crepe to a party and everyone said it was delicious.

Love the offerings for the brunch and lunch menus thru the week and on the weekends, absolutely delicious and everything is fresh and prepared from scratch - You can't go wrong and won't be sorry, certainly would highly recommend during the AM and early PM hours! Not so much can be said for the evening dinners - I found there... More
