My wife and I went for Valentine's date night and it was awesome. The cocktails were delicious. I had the Honey Bee, which was an amazing creation with cardamom infused bourbon, honey, citrus and bitters. My wife had Qu'est-ce Que C'est, which she assures me...More

On this evening visit -- We usually are there at lunch -- the salmon was juicy and crusted nicely and the oyster appetizer was fresh and tasty. The brie appetizer was a little more viscous than I like, but the atmosphere and service by the...More

The cute French guy with the tattoos who waited on us was perfect, as were the escargot. Delicious food and ambiance. My husband had the fresh fish sandwich and frites and loved them. Definitely will return when I'm next in the area.

I've reviewed this restaurant before, but our recent visit was marked by the special entrees offered. We order off the standard menu only half the time because the chef's special offerings are so tantalizing. This time it was swordfish, teder and not dry. The host...More

Cocktail menu has some very interesting choices. We tried Pear Ginger and Spirit Animal, both of which were excellent. We enjoyed the chicken liver special appetizer and especially liked the Pate de Foie, made on site. The pâté was accompanied by dark fruit jam and...More

The host knows gluten sensitivity is an issue, and knows ingredients well to counsel us. Lamb shank was tender and sauced well -- not heavily. I am reluctant to leave after a meal because the atmosphere is so warm. Bartender loves to craft a cocktail...More

This is now the best restaurant in the Pioneer Valley (with Blue Heron in Sunderland giving it a run). A charming proprietor and excellent French cuisine.
