Terrific food, lovely presentation, great service, upscale but not pretentious, nice ambience, and varied menu. Has choices for vegetarians and meat eaters. Convenient to Fairfield Metro North train station, the Post Road, and I 95.

Offers some food you can get at regular restaurants and diners but in a classy atmosphere. French name and some French staff but feels like an American restaurant.

We've been there twice and really enjoyed it both times and will go back. Good for brunch, lunch, and dinner.

Able to answer questions about ingredients and cater to people with food allergies, special diets, and such.

Overall very positive experience and would definitely recommend it.

This is now our favorite restaurant in CT. Though French food can be rich, the chef prepares it with just the right touch and sauces are not too heavy and can be served on the side. The service and attention to detail is constant.

Went here on a Thursday night a bit later at night. Only about five tables were full. Very relaxing experience. Good service. Friendly. I had excellent Blue Point oysters and delicious rack of lamb. My husband had a really good spinach salad. Ordered Margaritas and was a bit worried they might not be good ( we are from California); I was wrong and loved my drink.

The food is decent here, ambiance is better. Service was okay. There are better places to eat in Fairfield, but I would definitely try this again.

Square dining room, tables well spaced, excellent service throughout the meal.
Waiter explained menu, answered questions, and offered opinions about selections.
Fettuccine, curry shrimp, lobster risotto, sole - all excellent!
Salad and calamari were good starters. Bread mens-a-men.
One scoop ice cream enough for a pleasant end. Other good desert selection too.
Wine smooth! Not rushed whether to order thru to post- desert.
Very comfortable.
