When we entered the restaurant, I was immediately transported to a friendly neighborhood style cafe in the 7th arrondissement of Paris. Upon entering, you see a classic old-school long wooden Paris bar to the right. We were warmly greeted by Kathleen and promptly seated in the dimly lit dining area to the left that was decked out in eclectic wall coverings and art. The close-together tables ring the room and in the center are tables as well. The overall feel of the decor is that of a charming mismatch and set a relaxed atmosphere. Dale, our server, was attentive and went out of his way to describe dining choices and put us in the mood for a dining experience. Throughout the evening, the restaurant filled with patrons and the really nice observation of our group was that while the restaurant was full, we could easily carry on a conversation without feeling interrupted by other diners. The regular menu is supplemented by a chalkboard menu of evening specialties. What can you expect if from the food being served? Prepare yourself for skilled French cooking that will absolutely delight your taste buds. We dined on salmon,Dover sole, crown rack of lamb and a filet mignon. The wine list was extensive and reasonably priced. As the dinner progressed, Dale became more animated and was joined by other servers (Michelle in particular) who were all but bending over backwards to provide quality service and a dining experience we would rave about. They were successful. Save room for dessert as you simply cannot leave without trying the crime brûlée or profiterole. The evening was one of the best dining experiences we have had in months in the KC area. We have already booked a reservation for next weekend’s Bastille day celebration, which we understand will be a Montmartre cabaret with singing and dancing. Can hardly wait.

The atmosphere and food make this restaurant quintessentially French! Sometimes we just go for drinks and the happy hour is awesome!

This is a small, quaint restaurant downtown K.C. It has a lot of charm and amazingly great food. Call beforehand and they will make your visit extra special. Great date night!

Make sure you call for reservations. A small but very popular and authentic French bistro. The menu changes daily and they always make great recommendations. Oh la la!

This was our second time here and we had the same waitress (Jill) who is superb. Some of the best food and wine I have had. Every entree was great.
