We just stopped in for dessert and coffee on the porch on a lovely evening. Wonderful staff. A very nice place to just sit and unwind. Would have liked to have made it back for dinner another night as the menu looks delicious

Charming little restaurant with a French flair. Excellent service. Food is good, questions should be asked about the menu as it can be misleading. We enjoyed our brunch and will happily return.

This is without a doubt one of our favorite restaurants in Saint Michaels. It is expensive so if you are on a budget, I would skip this place. It is worth every penny though. Everything is first rate and delicious.

My wife and I joined 2 other couples, all here for the first time. All the dishes were excellent, but the ones that stood out in my mind were the Wild Mushroom appetizer and the Cheesecake. We'll definitely return.
