“Good food, slow but ultimately friendly service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

We showed up a little too early for dinner, so we started with drinks. The champagne was excellent and was a local vintage (can't remember the name). When dinner hours began, our waiter failed to come take our order, but the restaurant had filled quickly and he looked quite busy. He was friendly the whole time and I think the manager had probably failed to realize it would get busy that quickly. The bread and food were amazing when it was delivered and I would visit again, however I would definitely brush up on my French prior to returning. The language barrier was obvious, even with someone in our party who spoke a little French.

“Service was terrible but great food will overcome all.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

Showed up to this very nicely situated restaurant around 1800hrs. The outdoor seating was starting to fill up but we were one of the first tables there. Our drink order was taken immediately and one hour later (not exaggerating) our food order was taken. The single waiter was obviously over-whelmed but when help finally arrived (45 minutes later) our food order was taken 15 minutes later.

Now, once orders were taken, the food showed up promptly. And it was amazing. The escargot was very nice and the canard was amazing. The meats at this restaurant look mouth-wateringly good and the cheeseburger rates as one of the best I have eaten. The french fries and potato chips there will destroy any diet you are currently on.

Overall, I would have given a 5 rating if the service wasn't so bad. I do believe that was an anamoly and would not hesitate to eat there again and again, and again.
