“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

I would never know about this place if I wasn't doing my afternoon jogs in the neighborhood. The restaurant is small, tucked next to a Chinese place and a gym in an obscure strip that serves a few apartment complexes.
But anyway, the owner is a real French woman from Vichy. Hence, the food is real French cuisine. There are real cheeses, real vines, real desserts, and everything we tried was prepared just like in the Old World. The staff is very friendly.
On top of all that, as you leave, you can buy more of the wine you just had and the price is RETAIL.
Bottom line, I highly recommend this restaurant.

Delicious food, attentive service. Wine list small but good. Do not skip dessert ! Doesn't look like much from the outside but is excellent overall.

“Excellent place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The location off Gate pkwy is nothing special, but the food is great. Make sure to save room for the fantastic desert menu. There are almost too many desert choices. Lunch is often crowded with ladies having "lunch", however the dinner is not crowded and a good bottle of wine with dinner is perfect. The prices are not cheaP, but if you want cheap go to the golden corral.

“Desserts! Desserts! Desserts!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

If you want a great dessert, just try one of these. The lemon crepe cake is my favorite. Lunch is always good...I like the red grapes in the chicken salad. Eating here for lunch is perfect as still have room to share a dessert.

“Like a Mini Paris!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Love the food here & the service is always consistently good. The atmosphere is adorable & relaxed but could easily be dressed up at the same time. The food is always very fresh. The prices are a little more than I would hope, but competitive.
Also, their desserts are AMAZING. They also offer an impressive selection of wine & spirits as well as coffee.
Will definitely return soon!
