The group of the four of us had very nice meals in a convivial peaceful setting. Great place for a conversation. The food was quite good, traditional French cuisine, and very friendly professional service.

If you want French soul food, this is the place for you. Think neighborhood brasserie in Paris. Great cocktails, food, and service. Ask for Kelly. She makes a Sazerac cocktail that would make Angel's weep. This is a favorite with local residents.

Had a very relaxed Christmas Eve at the Bistro. Food and drink superb and a really friendly local group at The bar. Some locals playing guitar and mandolin music off the cuff. This place is really worth a visit.
