“Early Bird gets the Worm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

the early bird menu is a set fare, it changes daily, We ate there on Thursday...3 courses, bread and a glass of wine...the first course was big enough for the entree, crab with bacon and potatoes, the entree was honey roasted pork with white rice, dessert was an apple tart...Do Not go there if You want fast food, Great Food takes a while, the servers were attentive and very Friendly, the Chef's Wife was talking to everyone in the restaurant. We have eaten there before and the Food and Service have been Excellent.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

We went there expecting a great meal and we were sorely disappointed. We ordered the fixed pre dinner. It was a roast chicken dish. It was so salty it was not possible to eat it. They apparently brined the chcken for 3 days (REALLY?). When we talked to our server about it he just shrugged his shoulders. Won't be going back

“Croque Madame”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

This Bistro is a great place to experience French food. I had a Croque Madame that tasted exactly as I remember it tasting in Paris. The pastries are great. The only thing I thought was not great was the hot chocolate. We will definitely be back.

“Wonderful brunch in St. Augustine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Came here for lunch and had brunch instead. Kids has smoked salmon omelet, cheese platter with fruit and sliced ham, spinach-cranberry- walnut quichette with salad, chicken and pork pâté.
All I can say is the food was very flavorful everyone devoured their plates and the service from multiple wait staff only made the visit more welcoming. My son and daughter only 10 & 14 raves about their dishes. They are not ordinary kids when it comes to food and always order off the adult menu. So for them to enjoy these dishes it always makes me happy.
