The food here is excellent! The menu is not large, but Chef David does everything to perfection! I routinely start with the foie gras, and often have the fillet. Make sure you save room for the dessert! The creme brûlée is amazing!

We visited this restaurant as a special occasion, and had hoped for an elegant french dining experience. We ordered the tasting menu, and a very nice bottle of wine. We were surprised to be the only ones in the restaurant, and it was a Friday night during prom/graduation season. The food was alright, but nothing that was terribly creative, or... More

This is really a fantastic place. The food is incredible, authentic, simple and fresh. Nice decor, very relaxed, and plenty of space between tables. This is not an inexpensive place--so be warned there. But for a very nice night out if you like french food--this may just be the place for you.

My husband took me here for date night and it was exceptional. The chef/owner/server/host was exceptional. I had the foi gras, sea scallops and creme brulee. We were the only couple there on a cold Sunday evening. I hope they get more clientele!

I had the opportunity to have dinner at Chez Grace recently and wondered why the place wasn't packed. This was fine dining at its best. Lovely decor, white linen table cloths, great ambiance. The chef was the server and was attentive without being too arrentive. I had the pear and brie salad, which was exquisite. The best salad I have... More

From the moment you walk in to this lovely intimate little space with its charming Parisian decor and twinkling lights, you will know you have chosen a worthy place to celebrate life's landmarks. Chef greeted us at the door, showed us to our table, took our order and served us the meal, each course of which he prepared and paced... More

My son's 23rd birthday meal was a fantastic experience. The food was fresh and very flavorful. Chef was full of personality and very proud of his establishment. The foie gras on carmelized pear was out of this world!

We were in town for a convention, and looked this place up on Trip Advisor. It is in a small strip mall between a Mediteranean grocery store and a felafel restaurant. But once you're inside the ambiance changes dramatically. It is simple and elegant. OK, the menu is presented on copy paper, but it changes frequently. You pay by the... More

Celebrating my daughter's birthday, we could not have imagined a more perfect restaurant to do so. We had very high expectations before arriving based on reviews and every one of our expectations were joyfully exceeded. We opted for the six course tasting menu lovingly and freshly prepared, presented and served by Chef David, a master. We had foie gras, butternut... More
