This restaurant offers a varied menu for luncheon, including quite a few fish offerings. I enjoyed a delicious cream of mushroom soup, as an appetizer, and a cheese plate chosen from the entree selection. The cheese assortment offered samples of luxury cheeses, that I don't...More

The food is mediocre. When we went, the service was horrible. We were sat and received our drinks fairly promptly. However, our server passed by us 5-6 times and didn't care to take our order. He just looked at us down his nose. Apparently ordering...More

This is a light airy typically French restaurant in downtown Fredericksburg. Very good wine list with wines available by the glass or bottle at reasonable prices. Excellent service because the Hostess also pitches in with bussing in quieter moments.
