Although I would have loved to see them served in a cone and offer various aoli and condiments. All the food was great , Soups WOW!, Duck Confit WOW! Tarte D’Alsace WOW! Hop Devil Shrimp... More

This is one of our regular spots and we have never had a bad meal. Our 3 year old even asks to go here. Great sandwiches, frites, mussels, salads, and beer on tap.

This intimate restaurant is renowned for its mussels, which come in 3 great sauces. Couple them with well done Belgian frites, dipped in aioli mayonnaise, and you're in heaven! But they have more than mussels and frites, trust me. All their food is top notch, and reasonably priced.

Always a good choice for lunch or dinner. The mussels are always an excellent meal. The salads are large and fresh. I have never had a disappointing meal.

Don't take reservations for brunch so had to wait outside for 15 minutes in the rain in order to get first seating. Very cute place in a residential neighborhood and service and people were very nice. Started with a hair in coffee and dirty mug. Egg's Benedict looked good but hollandaise sauce was lacking and wasn't hot. Potato hash was... More

This tiny restaurant produces food MUCH better than one might expect (except for the consistently high reviews on Tripadvisor). Everything we (party of 5) had last night was excellent: clever, well prepared, nicely presented. Service is not fancy but efficient and friendly. The beer selection is worthy of a much bigger restaurant.

Went during a busy brunch. I had to find the hostess and get on the wait list. After standing over 25 minutes and watching people get seated before us ,my 81 year old mother ( who has been standing the whole time)made a comment to the hostess. The hostess must not have liked it and pulled a passive aggressive move;... More
