This is not a typical bistro. It's a dress-up, old-school, classical restaurant with white coated waiters, who do a lot of table side prep: Caesar salad for two, flambé, deboning fish, etc. Menu is traditional: duck à l'orange, filet mignon, lobster, rack of lamb, foie gras, etc. A few very nice specials did highlight the region, such as caribou and goose, as well as fine local raw milk cheeses.
Went last night with friends - we all live in the city and we were a noisy, English-speaking table. We were treated warmly by the staff as they shared jokes and tales with us - no snobbery. All of our meals were superbly cooked. The creme brûlée was the best I have tasted. To be honest, I did not care for my foie gras poelé, though it was perfectly served with toasted brioche and fig confit, and I thought that my steak somehow lacked something... But I will return in a heartbeat and try something else. Cost is varied: my foie gras entree was 33$ and my beef steak meal was over 50$, so the is pricey!! But, the table d'hôte was 4 services and very affordable at 52$, so it does not have to be crazy-expensive.
The building itself is traditional old elegance and filled with history.
