“Great neighborhood spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We stopped by on a Sunday night and found the place packed with a great vibe, we felt right at home. The place is smaller than we thought, seating arrangement could have Been optimized ( several 2 tops were seating at tables of 4...)
The menu is very limited but that did not bother us. We both liked our meal and we wish this place good luck as the bartender was telling us that they were expanding next door.

“Worth a repeat visit - classic brasserie (bar/cafe)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We stopped here for a later dinner with our college student and his girl friend. Everyone loved the food. The mussels and fries were wonderful and large enough to split. The aioli made the fries. They have a really tasting burger and their sandwiches were a hit.

Bottles of wine are half price on Sunday nights. The wine list was really quite good
and after getting a taste of several wines we settled on a bottle of Sancerre that we
enjoyed. Beer selection is incredible.

They didn't have (or at least offer) a children's menu but rattled off some choices when
I asked. My child reported that the child sized hamburger he had was great beef and
not your usual lower quality offering from the child's menu.

The place is clean and nice. The food and beer was great. The people working where friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. What more could you want?

“Excellent beers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

Seems every other table had better service than us. Wasn't terrible but not very attentive. The frites are awesome. I ordered the steak frite sandwich. Very good and cheesy! The side of soup, butternut squash, was not what I expected. Kind of runny and a weird pepper sweet mix. My husbands burger was perfect. The meat is top quality.
