Loved it...we ordered a number of dishes from the menu and shared. One of the rare places to serve a torchon de foie gras (it was delicious). Service was attentive and knowledgeable. Pricey but well worth the experience.

We get here by chance and ordered the meal of the day for lunch. It was not very sophisticated nor fancy but real fresh and good. Maybe it was surprise factor, we were not expecting anything in particular. The restaurant is from the same chef...More

I hosted a group upstairs for a corporate lunch. As we know, heat rises and it became very hot up there. They brought in fans for us. I thought they handled it well.
