“Higher Expectations”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

We decided to have lunch there on a Thursday after peak lunch time. It worked out perfect for timing. The noise level dissipated very quickly.
We ordered their specialty burgers. I realize I am a chef's nightmare because I really prefer my beef well done. I stressed that several times to the waiter. Unfortunately, I did not receive my burger that way. They were very receptive to cooking it again to the desired doneness. Second time was the charm...perfect! The burger was absolutely delicious once it was cooked more.
The waiter was very charming and a delight to converse with it.
My husband's dish was cooked to his satisfaction and he enjoyed it immensely.
Overall, it was a pleasant experience if you have the extra time to enjoy your lunch.

“A very nice French restaurant -- good lunch choice”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

I've been to this restaurant three times now, and am somewhat addicted to the quiche (lorraine and an unusual butternut squash and brie). There's a large bar adjacent to the main dining area, with no noise separation -- not a place to go immediately after work unless you like noise. However, this is a superb choice for lunch, mid-afternoon dining, or later in the evening. I joined the frequent diner program as I expect to use this restaurant at least once per month.

“Dinner after work”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Nice setup in restaurant.

For dinner classic steak which comes with fries.
Lots of fries and very thin steak but maybe thats the french way.

“Interesting food”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Went here for a Mother's Day late lunch one year. The service was outstanding and all enjoyed their meals. During the week days it is an expense account kinda place, but more families on the weekend.
