Step in the door and instantly you feel like you've stepped into a small restaurant somewhere in provincial France - Normandy, or the Loire valley, or even a Mediterranean port. Its "quirky" in that its small, and there's often not a lot of room between the tables - a lot of which are bench style, so you could find yourself sitting beside a stranger. This just adds to the ambiance, although it can be quite noisy when full.
The food is what you'd expect from a small French restaurant; and expectations of quality & choice have always been met and then exceeded every time I've been there. The sweetest, stringiest (blame the cheese crouton!) French onion soup I've had outside France, and I just don't know how they can do the faultless surf 'n turf (half a lobster and a small (small????) rib eye steak) for the price.
A decent wine list - both French & new world, and some great desserts (the crepe suzette is divine, and the creme brulee never fails to please). Can't comment on the coffee - never had room for any after I have finished eating.
Firts time I dined there, I was a little startled to have the wine served up in the same small tumblers that the water comes in, but you know, that just adds to the authenticity of the ambience & atmosphere.
If you want a "rustic provincial France" atmosphere, with excellent food and good service, this is the place for you!
