Lovely place

It's renovated older home turned restaurant, and quite lovely, Very unassuming from the outside. Excellent food and service. Pricey but quality. One of the best in Olympia.

Came back after a 10 year absence to enjoy the menu Justin and Zoe the owners for the last 4 years have put together. Same funky old house and school house furniture. Food was excellent. They do a good job of offering duck in several ways. Chocolate soufflé is a must for desert. The wine list is extensive. Overall, a... More

This is a special place. Always a pleasant greeting at the door by Zoe to make you feel welcome. We have traveled to France many times and the food here is very authentic, tastes delicious and is presented beautifully. You can take your time and enjoy some French wine while you taste and share different dishes. We have been many... More

We dine here whenever we visit Olympia because it's always outstanding. We began by sharing the wild morel appetizer--excellent. My maple lacquered duck breast tasted exceptionally fine and the shaved Brussels sprouts made a delicious accompaniment. My husband's lobster tarte also was delicious. But the "tarte's" appearance surprised us-a huge puff pastry commanding the top of a thick lobster "porridge."... More

Having honeymooned in the south of France two years ago, this was a nostalgic way to celebrate our anniversary. The setting is lovely, The service is just right. And the food is delicious. We were there on a Tuesday evening, and after the three young women who had only dessert left, we were the only guests. I don't know if... More

We dined with friends for our anniversary. The food was absolutely perfect. Service was very good, a nice selection of wine. We all had a good time. The perfect place for a good meal whether it's a special occasion or not.

Great service and food, very traditional French preparations. Great wine list, let the owners wife suggest a bottle to go with your meal.

This is probably one of the best locally owned restaurants in Olympia. We have had excellent service every time and fantastic food. Add romantic and intimate ambiance and what more can you ask for?! In a house, right by the mall, you can find this small restaurant. Make a reservation and plan to be spoiled. The bread and salted butter... More

Finding quality French food in the US is becoming harder - and this is perhaps the only choice in Olympia. Owners Justin and Zoe have put together a great experience, combining attentive service, quality food, and a great selection of wines. The restaurant is located in a beautifully appointed older farmhouse - and the oak wall, floors and chairs add... More
