“Moules frites in Downtown to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

My friend from Belgium discovered this wonderful bistro in the charming Downtown area of Sacramento. We have the Moules Frites in a wonderful buttery and lemony broth with fresh bread. Chef Rich does great sauces and and aoli to complement the meal. The ambiance is calm, very continental. There is a charming seafood bar and Chef Rich offers his expertise on wines to complement whatever you are having.

“Excellent food and wine, near the Capitol”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

The food was very good, and the service very knowledgeable and friendly. The pan fried chicken was very tasty. Inside was pleasantly quiet. Some sat outside, even in the heat. Many passing-by knew and greeted those seated outside, as well as the staff.
Their own extra rich ice cream was the best ever; twice the amount you'd expect, but the usual price. It was a cinnamon-vanilla, and a dark chocolate, along with pitchers of caramel and a dark chocolate sauce like nothing I've had this side of Holland.
I stopped by recently on a Saturday night, but it was fully booked. It's not a huge pace, so reserve ahead. It has a nice bar apart from the dining area.
