“Not French!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Despite what you may have heard, the luster of the former excellent French restuarant is absolutely vanished. Their French Chef of many years is long gone. They do not even have a French menu now. They may tell you it is but it is not. Check out their menu. The food is average "nouveau cuisine" at a high price. The courses were served one right after the other, just like an American chain restaurant. The main course of octopus was the size of two of my ring fingers. The oysters and foie gras were fine. The dessert was a chocolate souffle and was served with chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream, never happen like that in a French restaurant! Also, the petit fours were served right along with the dessert! We had a five course meal, served in one hour. Finally, the room was at 66 degrees. we froze. Do not waste your time or money. It is very sad, we had eaten here 5 times over the last 3 years and it had been out of this world. skip it now!!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

The dining room is beautifully appointed as one would expect in an upscale French restaurant. The variety of food is impressive and very tasty and well prepared. Service on the other hand is "outdated." By that I mean the head waiter and waiter had a superiority attitude which I found demeaning. I addressed their attitude and received and apology, although service was very cool thereafter. One expects the highest level of service, food and ambience when one is spending a great deal of money on dinner. Overall while the food was very good, the experience was not.

“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Wonderful meal, a special evening. The service was excellent. Wine list was impressive.
The price of our meal was right on target for this type of food and service. Less expensive than the NY/NJ area for this quality. The halibut was the best I've ever had. Great evening.
