We were driving around looking for a place to eat. When the menu was handed to us I did not see the "Can Not Split Entrees" sign at the bottom of the menu. My husband and I are small eaters. I have metastatic breast cancer and very, very little appetite. We were going somewhere after the restaurant so we couldn't... More

Well, it's just as I remembered from visits years ago to the Sherman Oaks venue. Good but not great food (probably missing great because of the raw materials and basic preparations with little creativity), very good service, little or no wine corkage, and a fun vibe of friendliness between customers and staff. All in the food is savory, kinda California... More

We were excited to try this French Café with our friends. However, it took 1 hour and 47 minutes to get our food after we practically begged three times. All I had was a salad which probably took 5 minutes at the most to make....tasted wonderful when I finally got it. My husband had the stuffed mushrooms and they were... More

four friends enjoyed a French-inspired dinner. Coq au vin, rack of lamb, leek and potato soup, escargots all reminded diner of shared meals in France. service was attentive and helpful. conversation was easy. desserts - sorbets and flourless chocolate cake - were enjoyable. this is a good choice in a neighborhood with many alternatives.

We were staying just up the street at the Marriott Courtyard, and so, this restaurant was just about the closest. Had not been here for a number of years (last review 2010), and, my, have things changed. Service is outstanding now. We remembered how it had been, and sort of dreaded to be in the same situation. But, no, the... More

It was our 47th wedding anniversary that week and we wanted to stop off somewhere special just for lunch before arriving our final destination. This place did not disappoint...the restaurant was very cozy/warm feel and service was courteous and prompt. Our lunch was extremely good. We started off with tomato bisques, small salad and hot sandwiches; pork with brie cheese... More

I've been to this spot at least 4 times and previously, it was always a good experience. It caught my eye initially because they serve Sweetbreads, and I love Sweetbreads. Well, the Sweetbreads didn't disappoint, they were as delicious as ever. However, they were the only good thing we had. The onion soup was a very small portion and was... More

We had a delicious dinner during the DineLA week. Didn't expect much due to the lower promotional price, but all 4 of us were impressed. We had french onion soup, escargot, steak 3 ways, fish - all were very good and rather generous helpings too for French cuisine.

We had a lovely dinnet at this 'almost french' restaurant. I had the three courses fixed august menu availlable at 32$. I chose a delicious lobster bisque, the two different lobster tails and a very good chocolate cake. My family chose a different meal, one including pasta and one fish, and two different soups: everybody was happy. They have a... More

The special fixed price menu lives on until August 31, 2016. My Sweetie and I had the "Trio of Meats" from the list. We stated out, after our Martinis of course, with both Caesar Salad and French Onion Soup. We then had our delicious meats with some potato and veggies, and finished the evening up with the hot chocolate cake.... More
