Quite, pleasant atmosphere. Owner and server were very helpful with meal suggestions. Once we understood the concept of the menu we were hooked. We spent 3 hours of conversation supported by terrific food and excellent wine pairings. We will return. It is a real gem.

If you love french cuisine and fine wine, you must eat here. My wife and I adore this restaurant. The attention to detail and wine pairings make this a luxurious date night. The Owner personally pairs each course and dish and when you are lucky enough to meet him, provides a prologue to each course. The servers are trained and... More

Maybe the kind feelings of a dog would give this $28. steak a few licks.....Anyone else should avoid it......A friend (acquaintance really) recommended. i can understand why he can gladly count all his friends on the fingers of half a hand......The place was empty and doubt it is ever crammed with people.......To its credit great white tablecloths.....A small rib eye?...

In the middle of Carytown, lies a true hidden gem of genuine French cuisine. Sorry CanCan. The environment is cozy, intimate. Staff is discrete, knowledgable. Cuisine is savory. Highly recommended.

AMAZING wine selection, and just a homey feel. The food is great and I love the owner. He heard we were thinking of a trip to Paris and gave us a ton of recommendations. They really know what they are doing here and everything is high quality.

We wandered in for lunch on Valentine's day and loved it! The brunch was tasty and the bistro atmosphere classy but without pretension. A surprising experience in downtown Richmond only a short distance from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

In fairness, I've only been here once. My friend and had Sunday brunch here. Even though the menu prices look reasonable, extras like toast cost extra. We both ordered the Florentine omelet. It was small but tasted ok. Because i was still hungry, i asked for an order of toast which I split with my friend. The biggest surprise was... More

My 87 year old mother loves French food. On a whim, on a Thursday night, we went in so she could have something light and delicious. Amour came through! A tomato peach gazpacho to start, followed by fois gras and ribeye. The portions are smaller than Americans are used to, but just right by world standards. Everything perfectly prepared and... More

We had been told that this was an up-and-coming, under-the-radar restaurant, a favorite of the couple who recommended it. We were sorely disappointed. Perhaps, because it was Richmond Restaurant Week and it was a prix fixe menu, the quality was less than usual, but we're unlikely to go back to find out. For the first course, my husband ordered the... More
