Met a friend here for breakfast, and it was ok - nothing to complain about, but also nothing to rave about. Service was excellent, probably the most noteworthy item. Pastry and latte were good, but you can find better in Richmond. The selection is limited, and nothing really stood out about the breakfast.

Had lunch. Told our table would be 20 mins although several empty and directed to the bar. Drinks very expensive. Mediocre wines at premium prices and I think I paid 7$ for a beer poured from a can. Eventually, we were ushered to one of the free tables. We had the steak sandwich which was tasty but had maybe 2oz... More

I had lunch here to help celebrate a birthday. The restaurant was quite impressive with a long list of wine, beer and cocktails. The French soup was to die for. It was served in a big crock and was quite tasty. Since it was national cheeseburger day, I ordered one. It came on a home-baked bun and was about 2"... More

Tell me how it is that a place that can serve a strawberry and banana crepe or a Nutella crepe can't serve one that combines Nutella and banana

Visited this restaurant with a business dinner. Excellent food and really good service. I didn't order the steak, but several companions did and it was also excellent. The trout was boneless with a delightfully crisp skin and I would definitely get it again. Roasted Brussel sprouts also great.

It's more of a popular date night venue, as the bar is typically full of people out for some fun in the heart of Carytown. Also, a bit pricie for the average food - but don't get me wrong - it's still good food; just know that if you really want a gastronomical experience you might keep looking.

My wife and I have been here a number of times but have never reviewed it. Now it's time. Food is always excellent. Big portions and rich, some some meals can be split. Good wine list and reasonable. The atmosphere is cool and French, and our service is always great. Great job today by our waitress!

Totally enjoyed an impromptu "snack" at a fav restaurant in Richmond! French Onion soup is "to die for" and the warmed Nrie is amazing with its sweet topping !! Always a pleasure dining here!!

The restaurant decor is absolutely gorgeous and it has great atmosphere, I will give them that, but when it comes to food, it is average (at best) and overpriced. Take it from an European who has lived in France for a year and a half.
