Got there early without a booking, no problem. Staff friendly, attentive. Food great - mushroom truffle dressed soup delicious, moules same, and plentiful. Parker had the roasted beet, goats cheese and candied walnut starter and confit duck, which he declared equally good. Good range of wines at reasonable prices.

FABULOUS!! Wonderful food, excellent service, found a local wine for the same price in the tasting room as the restrauranht (which we sought the next day to buy because it was SOO good!Scheid '06 Claret). It was so European-we LOVED it.

The negative posts about this place seemed to be from people who are unfamiliar with genuine French casual cooking. This food is sophisticated and authentic, featuring well prepared, non-fussy French cooking, as opposed to the pretentious food you sometimes get in supposedly French restaurants. My husband and I had an excellent, relaxed dinner here which reminded us of being in a small Paris bistro. Definitely recommend.

We were surprised by the reasonable prices for superb French food. Extensive wine list from low to high prices - mostly French wines but some local & I'd say something for everyone's taste and price range (we had a really good Cotes du Rhone Villages). We shared an excellent starter of Serrano ham & manchego cheese, to die for mussels et frites, amazing cannelloni and a classic crime brûlée

We were celebrating our 15th anniversary and it was very romantic

Service was attentive without being overbearing and we'd recommend this restaurant to everyone that wanted a special night out or just wanted to eat superb food

Will definitely come here again on our next visit to Monterey

I read the reviews and booked a table. We were not disappointed. Having visited Paris a number of times, I found this typical of a French bistro. The muscles were excellent. The frites perfectly crisp, the pork was great and the lemon meringue fabulous . A wonderful Chablis and great service. I would highly recommend this restaurant .
