“Tasty French/American food on the eastside”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

I have been here twice with friends and have not been disappointed. Wonderful food - I'd never tried sweetbreads before and they are really good! Nice spot on the water - good cocktails.Our group always orders a dish and split it up between us to we can try more items on the menu. If you have room for dessert be sure and order (you might want to split this)- the bread pudding with caramel sauce-yum. This is a go to lunch spot for myself and a group of friends-I cant wait to go back !

“Great place”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Whether for drinks, cocktails or lunch this is THE place to go!! Adored it. The French 75 cocktail was THE best. Lunch gorgeous and staff absolutely super.

Equally good if just popping in for a drink. Fave place.

“Nicely located french restaurant”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Attractive place overlooking the yacht harbor at the Carillon Point hotel-shops complex. The restaurant is across an auto turnaround from the exceptional Woodmark Hotel. Most tables in the restaurant face the boat harbor, arrayed around a sweeping curved window looking toward Lake Washington.

The restaurant has a strong list of wine offerings as well as a typical menu of French dishes. I had the onion soup gratinee ($12), a good but somewhat heavy version of this dish, and duck confit ($20), very nicely prepared with a browned skin and tasty. The confit came with a combination of frisee lettuce and lentils, perhaps not the most successful accompaniment.

From one visit, I can't say whether the restaurant does only a standard-good job with French dishes or has items that are really good. I look forward to more visits.

I enjoy the menu and service, a warm and knowledge team pared with very excellent bistro food. Love the onion soup, but with that said their soup of the day are always outstanding!

“Wonderful Time, The Place to Go!”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

We were staying at the Woodmark and could not get a suitable reservation at the hotel's resatuarant, the Bin on the Lake. So we walked across the plaza to this retaurant.
Turned out to be great luck, as this restaurant should be the place to go in Carillon Point. The service was impeccable and responsive. The food was delicious. Can't say enough!
