Our waitress was so friendly and helpful with the wines and there were quite a few by the glass--love that! We took our time... More

We were invited by a friend to celebrate his birthday with 8 other friends. My wife is fluent in French and enjoyed talking to the owner who personally greeted us in that language. We enjoyed great service and food and a great atmosphere, we will be back

Their Sunday brunch is really treat for the senses. The fresh squeezed orange juice for Mimosas, the homemade Blood Mary mix was the fun start. the menu had omelets, crepes, entrée dishes, eggs, and fruits. We attended a brunch party with 20 people. They set us up in a beautiful style, they executed all orders well, and were attentive. I... More
