I don't really know what the big fuss is about this place. I went because it had such good reviews but when we walked in it looked chintzy. Like a soda jerk place.
We had blackened salmon which was just too spicy and overpowering and the salmon was overcooked and dry. My friend had a hamburger she said was average but nothing to talk about.
The service was so slow although it was half full of people. Wonder how slow it would be if it was full.
It was overpriced for what you got which wasn't much. No leftovers.
I won't return.

This is a very small (kitchen is bigger than dining area), unusual restaurant that was/is? owned by a young American couple who apparently learned their trade in Paris. The couple started out with a catering business, which explains the lack of a liquor license and the small dining area. The menu is quite limited but with a good range of dishes, eg- meatloaf to duck l'orange. The taste, freshness and presentation of their food is very good. You can bring your own wine. Service is friendly and adequate. It is a place you will probably return to if you can.
ps. the meatloaf is unbelievably good!

From where we live 30 minutes one way and we make the trek at least monthly, should tell you something.

Small place in nice, mostly vacant strip mall.
OK on atmosphere and BYOB.
Always friendly and make you feel at home.
Can be busy in season so reservations a good idea.

Real thing chefs at work here.
Started as a catering outfit and the bistro came second.
French inspired, lunch and dinner menu is seasonal with daily changes.

Sunday Brunch we can't pass up the eggs benidict w/ best hollandaise in town.
Often order croissants or beignets takes 20 min.+ as they are made fresh to order!

This is a wonderful little restaurant. Food is excellent! The menu is not big and changes all the time. Everything is fresh and cooked to perfection.
The scallops will melt in your mouth. And do try the butter cake.
Our waiter was helpful and friendly. If you expect a menu with a 100 pre made dishes on it, then this is not for you.
Will be back there again very soon. :)

This restaurant would perhaps be classified as Continental Gourmet. However the menu has many unusual and therefore interesting items that would assure that each visit would be unique.
Everything we ordered was of the highest quality and artfully presented.
We will return.
