The restaurant is nice and cozy, with french background music and lots of french elements on the walls.
We asked the waitress what she could recommend between the onion soup, carrot soup and soup of the day. Based on her recommendation, we ended up ordering...the onion soup and the steak with cognac sauce (medium done) along with the house red wine.
Service was prompt and in 5 minutes the drinks were served and, soon after, the food.
We perceived the wine as having a slightly-rough taste. We recommend choosing something else from the wine list.
Moving on to the food, both the onion soup and steak looked good. However, upon tasting the soup, we were unpleasantly surprised to find that it tasted nothing like an onion soup should. We have enjoyed on many occasions onion soup, but this one tasted as if an onion was boiled in water, added bread with cheese on top and served. The specific taste of an onion soup was non-existent, which is why we left it untouched.
The steak was good, even though it was cooked a bit too medium-rare for my taste but overall was ok. The steak was accompanied by french fries and salad, which were also ok.
After finishing the steak, the waitress started clearing the table. Upon seeing the bowl of soup almost untouched, she asked us if we were done with it and after confirmation she took it away as if nothing was odd. In most places, if the food is left untouched the waiter/waitress usually asks the client if there is a problem with the dish. But that was not the case here.
Seeing this, our thoughts were that customers not eating/finishing their dish was a regular occurrence, so we just asked for the check.
After paying we read the reviews posted by former customers on TripAdvisor and came to realize that we were not the only ones mislead by the onion soup recommendation or by the house red wine.More
