We had more conversation with our fellow diners than with the waitress who waited on us. Food was decent. Wine was good. The gnocchi was the best thing on the menu. Good for a date but not really kid friendly.

A great find. We were seated in between to other couples that were both local. In a place that has about 20 or so seats that's a good sign. We started with the escargot which were wonderful. Entrees were the duck and steak. If you feel the need to pass on seafood in Monterey this is a great choice. I must say they do offer fish options. All in all good food and good service!

We had a table of 4 and only one meal was excellent. Menu was very limited. I had the veal and that was good, but it came with a small square of polenta. Two friends had the steak and it came with large under cooked fries... That's it... No veggies... Nothing else. For the $27 per plate they need to do more. Overall; not impressed.

I had read the reviews on this place and just had to give it a try. Its an unassuming location, about 6 blocks away from the Monterey Plaza, where we were staying. Just a dozen or so tables, that explains why I couldn't get reservations until 8:15.

We strolled in a bit early around 8PM, and we able to get seated right away. With soft French music, and lively conversations of neighboring tables, it was easy to feel comfortable. We had the carrot soup and escargot, both superb starters...a bottle of fantastic Cote D Rhone, and our main meals were Osso Boco and Coque Au Vin, just outstanding!

I would give this meal a top rating in all catagories of culinery excellence. And I preferred the relaxed setting to a stuffy high end brass and leather eatery. You could relax and enjoy the cuisine!

If you got to Monterey, this is a MUST EAT place!
