Great atmosphere, singers, yummy French food, what's not to love! It was a little pricey, but worth it. I had the veal and it was cut with a fork tender.

Our waiter John Pierre was more than happy to speak French with my 15 year old. She had the best duck she’d ever had and I had kangaroo loin for the first time. We will return.
