A small but perfectly formed menu & a great selection of wines. This restaurant has just opened & I would highly recommend a visit here.

This place used to be pretty good until the new ownership. I sort of felt sorry for them. The food was average - my chicken very dry. No atmosphere to speak of - there wasn't even any music playing. The owner/waiter can't even speak French, so don't expect an authentic French experience by any means. Would rather go to Winehot... More

This was food getting served which looked nothing like what you expected our sirloin steak with pom pom potatoes looked just like steak and fries cooked at home and came at the price of $27.90 or there abouts. Two of us had chicken which was described as chicken wrapped in bacon with mushrooms and sundried tomatoes and some sort of... More

We recently visited this restaurant (party of 4), food was good but the service was pretty slow. For example a couple had arrived long after us, but yet they got their food quite a while before ours. Pretty disappointing considering there was only one chef cooking.

We were a group of 5 and the only ones in this place for lunch on a Saturday, despite this, service was unbelievably slow! The food is nothing amazing, and definitely did not taste even remotely french. The cheese platter was a waste of time with the highlight being the walnuts.

We have enjoyed some great dinners, but since the original French owner sold the bussiness to other - non french - we only went baqck once. Very disappointed. We were seated outside in winter. The heater warmed us up on one side... The serviettes were paper, they used to be linen. The food was mediocre.

I really did not like the food here I have been twice 2 years apart and the food had not improved in this time. I found the service lacking and would not recommend this as the place to dine.
