Went for a friend's birthday and they were extremely accommodating to my friend who has a lot of dietary restrictions. Food was great an wine list was too. Check out the upstairs wine area.

Spent some time at the bar with a few martinis. Each of which was perfectly made with the best of ingredients. By a bartender who enjoys his trade. The meals had been spot on. Perfectly cooked scalps in a sauce that was, perfect. The seafood melody was wonderful. It has been hard to find an equal so far on this... More

Stopped in after dinner elsewhere in Tosa Village and took a few pastries to go. Tried the pistachio meringue cookies with butter cream filling (wow!), the chocolate chip cookies (great!) and the almond croissants (extra wow!) Selection was slim as expected at 9pm, but still had delicious finds. Atmosphere was pure French charm....were we still in the Milwaukee area??

As a first time customer, I was instantly taken back to one of the cafés I had visited in France a year ago! The café has sidewalk seating with umbrellas, and indoor seating on the main floor and second floor. NOTE TO FAMILIES: the indoor seating on the first floor fills quickly, so if you are told you have to... More

A friend was getting some treats and bought me some mousse. It was pretty good. I haven't eaten a meal here but hope to sometime.

Finding the place which is tucked back on a side street is an interesting challenge, but worth the effort. They only take reservations for groups of six or more, but we were seated quickly. Service was excellent and our waitress was constantly checking on us. We had several of the appetizers and all were incredible. The cheeses were particularly good.... More

I came in for a late dinner and after waiting a few minutes for the waitress to notice me I was given a menu and ordered the scallop crepes. Within minutes I had a lovely plate of crepes, which came with a nice salad of mixed greens. The crepes were delicious, with a wonderful sauce. I would be happy to... More

Both service and food were average. Maître looked like he would rather be doing anything else as he marched us upstairs. Server was pleasant and efficient. Food ranged from pretty good to terrible: Charcuterie plate: minuscule, but with a really good, teeny tiny scoop of liver pate French onion soup: truly awful, strangely thick and completely tasteless-worst thing we ordered...

We love this restaurant for breakfast or lunch. Breakfast is not full service, but the food is well worth the effort. Lunch is so relaxing, with standard French offerings. I particularly like their Quiche and Croque Monsieur and Croque Madame. The bakery is out of this world goodness. Dinner has left us disappointed mostly because they do not seem to... More
