Every time I go, I enjoy every second of the evening.
Boeuf Bourguinhon is wonderful, so says my husband. I had a marvelous steak (do not remember the name), that comes with fries and a very good béarnaise sauce. They have a good selection of wine (considering that San Jose is ages behind in good dining and wine in general). It is quite expensive when comparing to other restaurants, but for me this is the first "real" restaurant in San Jose.
I personally do not like the dessert selection they have. I had once the creme brûlée, did not like it much, then a rose macaroon, It was well done, as a macaroon, but tasting flowers in my mouth is not my thing, for my it was like eating a perfume, and I also had the profiterole, very good, but not to die for. Considering in general how expensive is dining out in San Jose, I think this is the best option value for your money. I spent $100 for 2 people in Outback (wings, ribs and fries, and some beer), and US$ 200 in L'Ile de France, for an appetizer to share, 2 excellent beef dishes, one dessert , 2 coffees and 2 bottles of wine wine. Make you own judgement.... I do not care about the desserts, just for the dinner I'll go 100 more times.
