“Great for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

A fun lively place for lunch. I had a turkey and cheese baguette toasted to perfection. The sandwich was juicy and yummy. The lunch specials looked different and delicious. I'd definitely return.

“Maybe we were just unlucky..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

We heard such good things and we love French food so we were excited to try it. Sadly every thing we had for lunch was so bland... Both soups had no flavor and my husbands smoked salmon was such a sad portion. Nothing anyone would get full off of and we are not even big eaters. The service was pretty terrible.. not enough servers for a the lunch hour.

“Very overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

Saturday brunch very rushed and we ( 6 people) were crushed into a nook at the very back. Food unexceptional. For being know for "croque monsieur" it was pretty bland and soggy

“Yum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

I've lived in charleston for 5 years and just experienced this place for the first time, it's amazing! Quick bites, super reasonable prices and very, very French! Get the croq openfaced because its so much bread otherwise. Very quaint space but fun community tables make it interesting!

“Great spot to have a meal and socialize”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed the atmosphere and food at this small bistro-type place. Diners sit in close quarters around U-shaped counters and choose from a nice selection of French dishes. Bouillabaisse was surprisingly bland for a French restaurant, but the gazpacho was terrific.
