Romantic & priced right.

I have visited this French inspired restaurant several times. The food is 5 star quality at a very reasonable price. A small intimate setting, byob and reservations required. A must for anyone looking for a great meal.

Let me start by saying we were a half hour late for our reservation because we mistakenly noted the wrong time when we made the reservation. I appreciate that this did not seem to affect our service, which was friendly and professional. Our appetizer was very good, Camembert w/apples, fig and walnuts on crostini, and my salmon and hubby's chicken... More

The small, intimate outdoor garden makes for a fantastic atmosphere, and the food is incredible. Even the vegetarian dish was amazing-- I will never think about Eggplant the same way. Flavorful, well-textured, not overly complicated dishes, designed and cooked with care. The chef clearly loves and has a passionate understanding of food. Try to get a seat outside-- the atmosphere... More

Great food! No air conditioning. No table cloth. No credit cards. No decor. But good service and great food. Just come on a cool night with plenty of cash and don't dress up.

We had a delightful meal here. We were seated in their back patio outside (at 6:00). Although it had been a hot day the patio was pleasant. The menu is small but varied We both had the salmon and shared a salad and a dessert. Everything was prepared perfectly. You must remember that if you want wine you must bring... More

What a great find for a small restaurant! Dinner was excellent, staff was personable, and the atmosphere was a reminder of New Orleans' famous Court of Two Sisters. I recommend this place very highly! The courtyard really did make the dinner special.

We really enjoyed our meals. Hard to get reservations due to the size of the restaurant. Delicious lentil soup, very nice salad. 2 had salmon, the guys had short ribs & steak. We all loved the food. Nice to have BYOB.

Ate here a Saturday night after a play. We had reservations (a necessity) and the place was packed. We were just a twosome and did end up in quite a small, adequate, but small table. We started with small plates - camenbert cheese and a ricotta crepe. Both plates were plentiful and delicious. For our entrees, we had the pork... More

Had a wonderful dinner with my nephew and husband on Friday night!! Love BYOBs with great food. This place fits the Bill!! The chicken special was quite tasty. The boys told me that their lamb shank was also great. The staff is very friendly and attentive. You can park in the bank lot across the street after 7pm. Would recommend... More

We went there, a group of three friends, and arrived as planned for 5:30pm. We had a lovely time and did not leave until 8:30pm. Yes, it was a week night, but still at no point did someone rush us, or made us feel less than welcome. The food was original, well prepared, and very fresh. Portions were reasonable and... More
