Will definitely return to this restaurant. We went on a Wednesday evening around 8:00 and was seated without a wait. Our server was super good and I wish I could remember her name. She didn't hover but was there when we needed another glass of wine. I loved the "white tablecloth" atmosphere. It will be a special place to go... More

A nicely priced menu with many authentic French offerings. The Seafood Crepe appetizer was very good and packed with shellfish. The Cheese Soufflé appetizer was quite delicious and authentically French. Oddly, our favorite dish was the Veal Schnitzel, which was fork tender, perfectly cooked and prepared with a delicious lemon butter sauce! The wines are also fairly priced. Our only... More

Our visits there have been nothing short of amazing. Great menu with exquisite food prepared by an authentic Frenchman. We enjoyed this little bistro tremendously. We found the escargot delicious, as well as most fish recipes. Special place for a special occasion as well.

Let me start off by saying that I am going to be a little hard with this review. After living here for awhile, this is the first visit. We have heard a lot about this place which probably created in my mind that this was going to be a very nice experience. To be honest I was a little underwhelmed.... More

This is a gem of a restaurant. Beautifully prepared French cuisine that is absolutely delicious. The Brie filled crepe is phenomenal. The price fixed menu was an incredible deal as my whole meal was less then our bottle of wine. The wine list is lovely with numerous selections. It is easy on Hilton Head to get sucked into one of...

Happy to have "discovered" this very nice place during this time's visit. A selection of French wines accompanies excellent quality dishes, whether fish or meat. Not to be forgotten the very competent and friendly service. And if you come there on a Tuesday evening you'll be able to be served a three course meal at the early bird rate.

This is a nice restaurant but it is expensive and I personally did not like the choices on the menu. I am a picky eater and the only thing on the menu I would eat was a Caesar salad (which only comes in a side not a dinner size; I found this out when she served it.) Luckily, I requested... More
