To expect excellent food with a view is a lot. But then to get it, and excellent French Food, at that, is a true treat. What a terrific meal, with superior service. Classic French, but not pretentious. Great wine, entrees and desserts. A treat on all fronts!

If you are looking for a place with french ambiance and great food - come here. The restaurant is very charming and the food delicious. It was very reasonably priced - you could have a prix fix menu salad, entree and dessert for $39. Since everything i was going to order was on the prix fixe it was a bargain... More

I had dinner here with my parents and children. We were all very happy with our meals. As a vegetarian I appreciate that there is a vegetarian menu and instead of simply ordering the one vegetarian meal I can usually find on a menu, I had three entrees to choose from. I had a vegetable napoleon and it was quite... More

If you want foamed or dotted sauces, fusion style, stacked foods, experimental cuisines, go elsewhere. If you want extraordinarily well prepared traditional French cooking, go here. The Beef Bourguignon was one of the best things I've ever eaten. As soon as I got home I went to my dusty copy of Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking to... More

Two of us enjoyed the cocktail menu (pear martini, Fellini Bellini, and the Elderflower Power martini), music and atmosphere, and entrees as well as the Peppermint Schnapps hot chocolate with incredibly thick fresh whipped cream on top. There are some tables outside if you prefer to eat outside. We actually enjoyed being inside and noticed a great deal of natural... More

We arrived on Sunday evening for dinner without reservations and was greeted warmly by the host. We gladly accepted the offer to dine at the comfortable bar and enjoyed perfectly chilled martinis. Without knowing anything about this restaurant, we were SO very happy with our chance and choice for dining here. Very attractive restaurant, well trained and attentive wait staff.... More

Excellent meal, with attentive service in a lovely restaurant with great choices on an interesting menu. Lots of typical brasserie fare plus some updates, such as tuna tartare. The prix fixe is a bargain at $25 for brunch and $35.00 for dinner. This was a wonderful surprise and we look forward to returning.

Wonderful meal in very nice surroundings of this restaurant. One of the newer and nicer dining areas in this region (seemingly). Good basic French food, although we loved the tuna tartare. Steak frittes (sp?) was terrific. The prix fixe is an excellent value. A little disappointed that they were out of certain things on a Monday night but that's how... More
