Our first visit. They had some specials in tribute to Julia's birthday so our dessert was cherry clafoutis and was a perfect finish to our meal. We had a great bottle of St. Emilion Merlot, small plates of Tartelette Flambeau with bits of bacon, caramelized onion, and fromage blanc, Local mushroom stir fry (shiitake, garlic, Provence herbs, shallots), and entrees...

We enjoyed two courses and wine pairings and then dessert. Our party of four was totally new to French cuisine and dining. Our server was friendly and helpful, and the owner friendly and welcoming as he explained the pairings. The salmon and lamb entrees get rave reviews, also the tomato tart. Much is locally sourced and the setting is intimate... More

This is a small restaurant. I have been several times. Sometimes it's only a couple people there and sometimes I need to sit at the bar, because the restaurant is full. When I came for brunch I had the wild mushroom crepe. It was delicious. I shared the porfiteroles and sorbets with my mom. The profiteroles were were ok. I... More

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.
