“Good food, service & value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

My wife and I had eaten dinner here during a previous visit and had lunch here during this trip (Nov '12). Having somewhat smaller appetites, we shared a salad nicoise, a cheeseburger and a creme brulee. The salad was a little light on tuna but otherwise delicious and plentiful. The cheeseburger was a wonderful surprise. Per our server's recommendation, we ordered it medium, and were reminded that French medium is somewhere between rare and medium-rare by American standards. The hamburger was quite thick, with perfectly carmelized onions, an unusual cheese (maybe gruyere?) and a very flavorful slice of tomato. The creme brulee was in the customary French shallow, oblong dish and was predictably delicious. We complemented the meal with a half-liter of house (provence) white wine, and were pleasantly filled for less than $50. We definitely recommend it.
