Excellent seafood, beet salad and service. Even with all tables filled it was quiet enough on Saturday night for a conversation with an older person

It is a French-American seafood restaurant in Evanston, IL. True to the French tradition, it had pressed white table cloths, the flatware was changed for each course, and they even provided a seafood knife for the fish. The meal was outstanding in every way. We...More

The food was absolutely fantastic. Scallop appetizers, halibut entree, salmon entree both very good. Several free sorbets and desserts along the way. Thought the great wine list was very overpriced. Happy to have gone this time.

Went there for just desert to celebrate an event with my wife. 2 pieces of cake and coffee came to $45. Ridiculous price. It was good but not THAT good. Won’t be back given the other choices available I. Evanston and Chicago.
