“Wonderful French Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

It is the best restaurant in Fresno! Quiet, excellent food, good ambiance, superior service. However, it is expensive count on $120 and up for two people, if you can afford it go! It is well worth the money.

Food and service are the best in Fresno. I love their patio for evening dining and this restaurant has never disappointed us.

“Stuck in time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

It reminds me of a very upscale assisted living facility. Very peach, very 80's, clientele very old. Food is not classic french, more continental. Lots of heavy sauces that are not bad but not authentic either. Service was fine. Didn't like server reciting 7 specials instead of having them written down. Overpriced. You can do better in Fresno if you want high end cuisine.
