“Good French Bistro”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Very good french bistro food. Would go there more often if the chairs and tables were not so small and uncomfortable or what the French like to call intimate.

“excellent food in an intimate setting”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

This french bistro is located in the center of Millbrook. And it is, like all bistros, intimate. That's rather pleasant and fun for us, but perhaps not for everyone. Regarded by locals as the best dining in town and I can't disagree. I recently had the mesclun salad and filet of sole meuriere. Sole is such a delicate fish that it needs a very attentive hand and I thought mine was on the burner a tiny bit too long. A bit crispy. But quite good. My wife had the same salad and the salmon with mustard sauce which she raved about. Cooked perfectly. We shared some wonderful desert involving ice cream and chocolate but I forget the details of what made it so great. A glass of wine too many I guess. Highly recommended but perhaps not the sole on a busy night.

Have been going for years but hadn't been in some time. Excellent and authentic French food, good wine selection and overall a lovely evening. Love this place!

“Excellent as ever”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

Once again had an excellent meal. Had artichokes for starters and then duck 2 ways as the main; both excellent. They allowed us to bring our own wine ( sentimental value label!) Only 2 small downsides were that the expresso machine was "down" the night we were there and the creme brulee had an overthick and premade topping but the other desserts were great
