“You can't eat atmosphere!”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

Wonderful look and feel of this authentic French bistro in downtown Bridgeport. To bad the food is not as awesome to the atmosphere. Not bad... just not awesome. Grilled Romaine Salad... great! Steak Frites... not authentic. That being said, we'll be back to eat up the atmosphere.

“Nice surprise in Downtown Bridgeport”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Located right across from the bijou theatre, we were pleasantly surprised with the cozy ambience of this charming little French bistro. The house cab hit the spot and so did the parfaits. Food needs a little more refining.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

This was my second visit. I had the Seared Scallop Chowder and the soup of the day. Both were outstanding. Very tasty.

My only complaint is the size of the portions. Not surprised though since it's a french restaurant. Would be nice to add another 50%. I could have eaten twice the amount of chowder that I received.

The waiter was very attentive, the atmosphere very nice. I'll definitely go again each time that I'm in town.

“Haven't been in awhile.”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

The service is fantastic. The food is very very good as well, but menu a bit limited. Try the steak frites!

“Best Bridgeport Bistro”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

This place is a just one of those rare finds: amazing food, warm atmosphere, and a staff that makes you feel like family. Not to be missed, if you're local, or not so local. Worth the trip.
