We were looking for quick and easy French food and we tried this place since it's quite near our hotel. The servers were very nice and accommodating. The escargot were good and duck confit as well.

Perfect little bistro serving the best onion soup I have ever had. The waiters are very pleasant and vibrant. We went there for a quick lunch and had the onion soup, escargot, creme brûlée, and profiteroles.
