My customer took us out for dinner here. Was absolutely wonderful. Atmosphere was nice, food delicious. Portion sizes were very generous. I ordered the pork shank for my main and there was enough to feed 2. The chocolate mousse was beautiful too!

French-inspired dishes served by informal but exceptionally pleasant service. We were 3 people at the table and ate an almost perfect meal with flavors that were separated when they were soiled and mixed when it was right. Recommended!
