Tried this restaurant last Friday. We found the food to be very good. I had the Hanger Steak with Burgundy Sauce. I ordered it medium, and it was cooked to perfection. My only wish would have been if it were made known that in addition to the burgundy sauce (served on the side, yay!) it was also going to come... More

Our family was celebrating a birthday and decided to dine here for dinner. The restaurant was not that busy; however, service was slow. It took quite a bit of time for our drinks to arrive. Mine was made wrong so they politely took it back. It was served to me in the same glass as I recognized my lipstick. Appetizers... More

This is the second time I visited this restaurant. The first time was a dinner around Christmas time a year ago; the mussels was excellent and I also enjoyed the cold vegetable soup. However we found the entrees to be an uneven experience. The second time we went there for their brunch. Their La Complete breakfast crepes come with some... More

We met five friends to celebrate two birthdays. We arrived quite early and sat down in the bar to enjoy their 4-7 pm happy hour. Drinks and a nice bar food menu were $6.00. The bar was very busy. Service was friendly and good. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Three people had the duck breast and said it was wonderful. I... More

Nice place to get some good French food in the surbs. We started with onion soup which had a great broth and lots of onion. I had the Mussels and Fries - you get a tone on Mussels so make sure you are hungry. Fries are perfectly done with just the right amount of salt. Others in our party had... More

Ordered the Escargot – came out very hot and received a roll for dipping into the butter and garlic it was very good also enjoyed... More

The food used to be pretty good, but now it is 'meh' coupled with '$$$'. They had an ownership change and it shows. We ended up there after two other places had long waits and this was half empty, which should have been a warning sign. The maitre'd had us wait while he took a long phone call before seating...
