Really good French food in a strip shopping center. Priced appropriately, with great seafood options the night we visited. Friendly Manager (Owner?) who personally thanked us for stopping in offered a complimentary mousse for dessert. Very good experience. You should give it a try! Parking lot is a crowded mess, so give yourself a few extra minutes to stalk a space.

We stopped by here based on other reviews we saw online while we were waiting for our tickets to go see a show on the WB studios lot down the street. Overall food was good, service was very prompt, courteous and nice.

Parking was a little challenging in the shopping center because we came around lunch time. Décor was cute but the tables are seated way to close to each other allowing you to hear other peoples unwanted conversation. We sat by a group of three people who loved to brag about their successful business the whole entire time and that was really annoying.

We ordered the chicken penne off the main menu-the sauce was good but the chicken was a tad dry on the outside; also, off the lunch special, we had the salad nicoise. Good dressing with overall nice seared tuna. We ordered the soup special but they didn't have it and to our surprise they gave us a free cup of their vegetable soup to split. We also got to split a free small chocolate cake. THANKS!

It is true that the restaurant is in a strip mall, but inside you would never know it. The owner was very attentive and charming. We never felt rushed or that we were a bother - we could have stayed all night! The food was good, but my risotto was too rich (butter and cream). I couldn't eat more that 1/3. Although we traveled 40 minutes to get there, it was worth it. A good find!

Great French cuisine in a shopping center. The food is excellent, and a short but good wine list completes the experience. The service was perfect. Great place for dinner in Burbank.

Has the warm ambience, decoration and atmosphere of a small restaurant in metropolitan France. Excellent bouillabaisse, fennel crusted tuna, great crispy gnocchi with truffles riccotta as examples of classical French with a flair. Limited but well chosen and reasonably priced wine list, mostly American. A setting for a very enjoyable meal with good company.
