The first time I ate at this wonderful restaurant was when visiting Case Western Reserve in 2011. We had finished our tour of the campus and walked right across the street to the restaurant to see if we could get in. We had a lovely lunch with soup and rillettte and cassoulet. My French son was very impressed! We have... More

I would highly recommend this restaurant The onion soup was the best I've had. I had the Cassoulet which is braised white beans with lamb, duck confit and sausages. It was excellent. My wife had the Roasted Cod and it was also very good.

A charming nicely situated European-style restaurant with generally very good food (too much balsamic in the pureed root vegetable soup but otherwise excellent and reasonably priced) but you won't want to stay long: you've never sat in more uncomfortable chairs in an upscale restaurant. Hard plastic, the type of seating you'd find at at airport food court. It took me... More

The food is excellent. I had the french onion soup, which has a slightly different twist in that it contains some beef along with the stock, onions, and of course, cheese. The cassoulet was also excellent, full of different sausage, duck potatoes, etc. Much more than one can eat in one sitting. The service was attentive and the location is... More

There are many reasons to come to this restaurant . The atmosphere ,location,staff and the FOOD! Our table shared the wonderful "French Toast", a beautiful mushroom preparation that we all agreed was divine. Service was wonderful,portions were generous. Everyone enjoyed their food and would return for the Trout alone. I look forward to returning again.

We celebrated a birthday here the other evening -- what a delightful experience! Great atmosphere (can't wait to return for the patio and bar some evening), FANTASTIC food, and incredible service -- I've never had so many wait staff serve my table, I felt like a princess! Diverse menu, all fresh ingredients, and unique ways to put it all together.... More

As a native Clevelander, I have been eating at this location for many years, back when it was previously known as "That Place On Bellflower", also a French restaurant. If you love French food in a quaint historic atmosphere (but who wouldn't)...this is the place. Spend a day or morning at the world-renowned Cleveland Museum of Art or attend a... More
