Three of us had lunch, two pasta dishes, one pulled pork sandwich. All the meals were excellent, tasty, fresh. I had the linguine saliciccia, it was incredibly tasty.

We wandered in the restaurant by accident.I would definitely eat there again. The only minor complaint may be that the lunch was a tad expensive.

It's in a strange location, a strip mall, but the interior is charming.

High quality French cuisine in a surprising location - a mall. Every course was high quality. If you expect the traditional French dishes to be cooked to a high standard you will not be disappointed. Free parking - in a city where you have to have parking change wherever you go - was a bonus. We didn't even have to rush to plug the meter. Great wine to compliment. It is family run so don't expect chique or "young sophisticated" - but it is done just right.

Excellent food! Our party (6 of us) had 2 fish entrees, bouillabaisse and 2 meat entrees. Everything was extremely well cooked. A generous portion of homemade bread with balsamic dipping oil was offered right away. The risotto accompanying the meat entrees was perfect as were the vegetables. The lamb osso bucco melted in the mouth, as did the beef short ribs. The fish was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented and the bouillabaisse was excellent. The house wine was also excellent and served in very generous glasses.

The room is casual, paper napkins, no tablecloths and several clever prints on the walls. The location is a bit out of the way, located in a corner of a mini-mall, next to a bank - it was a pleasant surprise to find an extensive menu and wine list. The weeknight we visited there were several empty tables, but I understand weekends are busy so reservations are recommended. I think this neighborhood restaurant/bistro is a great value and well worth seeking out.
