“Great romantic restaraunt, excellent food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

I picked this restaurant due to other reviews indicating a good place to take a date for a romantic dinner. The place is small, cozy, very pleasant and met all of my expectations for ambiance and for food. A great date was had!

“Food was great but just fell a bit short for us”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Don't get me wrong we had a great meal. The mains were very good, lamb, short ribs and a first class seak and paella. It's pretty crowed, very casual, parking is valet only, decor is ok. It's is presented as a casual, local French place and that is exactly what it is. Would love to give it four starts but we hold those for really great experiences.

“Really good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

They serve delicately prepared food (not mass produced) which tastes really good. The staff are very nice. The only challenge with this place were the tables which were so near each other that it made it feel a bit cramped up. A bit pricey though, but you get quality food

“The perfect experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

The menu is gorgeous, the service impeccable, and the food perfection. We enjoyed our evening immensely and should note that the owner/chef is very present. This is a well oiled "machine" and not to be missed.

“Great French Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

This location, in what must have been a great home sometime in the past, has comfortable and friendly feeling. Nice bar up front, cocktails are well made like my cucumber martini. I enjoyed grilled wild Georgia shrimp on a bed of tabbouleh for the appetizer. It was a nice contrast of texture and temperature, warm shrimp and cold tabbouleh base. Entrée: having avoided a dish with beef and butter for many years, I broke down and enjoy some veal picatta, prepared with cage free raised veal. Delightful, I could have ordered a double portion however I’m glad I saved room for the Cherry and Almond Tort. Looking forward to another visit.
