I didn't find it particularly French. The food was good; limited menu; difficult location; pleasant outside dining. A colleague had steak and said that was very good. I enjoyed the meal and the ambience. I'll go back again. it was at least that good.

You can make it by phoning the Restaurant, or just go even without reservation, you will be served. If you are dinning in number, better reserve on phone.
