We had lunch here, and were surprised by how good it was, absolutely delicious. It’s a small place, the menu is not huge, but everything looks good. The only downside, it’s a little bit pricey...so can’t do this every day. But we’ll be back.

My only suggestion...the chandelier in the middle of the room needs to be cleaned. It might add to the atmosphere, but dust seems to be hanging on it, ready to fall on the next guest’s plate.

The restaurant is furnished with antiques from various estate sales with each table and its chairs being different and a wide array of wall hangings. That said, the hodgepodge works and the atmosphere is surprisingly warm for a storefront restaurant with a semi-open kitchen.

The menu features gourmet items typically found in French restaurants (frogs legs, escargot, etc...) and is priced accordingly. Each our our appetizers and entrees was prepared well and was enjoyable.

I found the prices to be a bit high although this is typical for French restaurants and somewhate reflective of the delicacies available. I'm not a huge fan of this cuisine but Khloe does a good job of preparing it.

While at first we were simply disappointed with the food, we left completely disgusted with the whole experience. The appetizers were nothing short of below average, and though the entrees were slightly better, when the bill came, we knew we would never be back. Amongst one of our entrees was a $28.00 " steak at poivre" we thought we had ordered. Upon ordering, we were told that the cut of meat listed on the menu would be replaced as it was out of stock, but when we received the bill, we saw that we were charged $48.00 for the entree we had originally ordered. Apparently, the waitress only then let us know that the replacement would be a $20 difference in the price of the entree. We paid the bill and were not just disappointed in the food, but felt taken advantage of. We certainly do not recommend this restaurant to anyone, unless you are looking to pay an arm and a leg for below average food at best!

Can't believe you are in Fort Lee as the restaurant has killer ambiance and a NYC hip vibe to it provided by Nina. An eclectic French bistro with always delicious and innovative meals. The Interior of black walls and floor give off a modern, chic, clubby vibe which is paired with mismatched country chairs and tables. Candle holders thick with melted wax are everywhere. A killer music playlist is always on that completes the experience. It sounds weird, but the whole decor works to provide a sensory pleasing time.

It is small so you may have to sometimes wait, but what is the rush??!! It is also BYOB which is a real positive and keeps the bill tolerable. Speaking of which, your bill is presented in Cuban cigar boxes to round out the whole, unique experience. Has become our favorite restaurant!

First time I tried to make a reservation whoever answered the phone was rude. So I didn't. Second time walked in with a reservation, terrible music blasting, asked if it could be made lower and was turned down flat. Left and went to Fontana de Trevi in Leonia, where the grownups eat. Not going to try again.
