“Excellent food, a bit pricey and stand-off-ish!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

A true French experience. Faux Gras, 2 kinds of duck, cuisse de canard confit, canard breast sliced, a wonderful nutty green salad and Pinot Noir from the Bourgogne. A somewhat reserved waiter and high prices. I thought (for a moment) I was back in Paris!

“Nice Evening for our Large Group”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We were a large group to celebrate a birthday. We had a smiling and pleasant waitress that contributed to making the event successful. She was also a good advisor in terms of recommending the proper level of cooking for the different types of meat. The restaurant did very well is serving all of us always at the same time. The atmosphere and décor are pleasant, the restaurant was full. I had the foie gras terrine and it was excellent. Also had the skirt steak that was cooked perfectly. Other meals included wild boar. They have a very good wine selection.

We had a very good evening.

“A Wonderful Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Not far from downtown, this French restaurant might as well been Paris. We had a wonderful waitress that took pity on a couple from Texas that have about a 3 word french vocabulary. A wide selection of wonderful foods made the evening a memorable dining. A selection from steak to wild game to fish gave a wonderful challenge. White butter sauce with squid ink, amazing. Plus, real french fries! Don't forget desert.

“Good food but not enough to eat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

Nice place. Good service but the plates are quite expensive for a small quantity. Wines are nearly only from France and are expensive. The salad or a soup is inclusive.
