This was a very fun "find" for us because good restaurants on the West side, and especially out in Waukesha County where we live, are pretty scarce. We loved everything about our dining experience, except that the waiter forgot to bring bread, and he didn't warn me that a sizeable salad accompanies the seafood crepe. I had also ordered a beet and goat cheese side salad, so together it ended up being far too much lettuce. Everything else was excellent and we can't wait to go back!

This small restaurant is the real thing...it truly felt like being in Paris....what a delightful find! We were seated upstairs and I highly recommend you ask for an upstairs table...quieter and cozy. There was a nice wine list for starters and then we moved on to the salads. The beet salad with pears and cheese was lovely, light and flavorful. Everyone in our party of six was happy with their entrees. Two of the men had the marrow crusted tenderloin and were happy to give us a bite of their generous meal. Two of us had salmon and were equally happy. My husband tried the monkfish..and thought it was delicious. I however had the winner...a ravioli filled with sweet potatoes and served with a brown butter and mushroom sauce. Wow... And when we were done, the gentlemen in our party headed to the patisserie downstairs to choose their desserts...and were kind enough to share with us. Service was top notch, atmosphere was lovely, get reservations, and be prepared to be spoiled!

This is a very quaint speciality restaurant located in the old Wauwatosa business area. The menu will change on occasion due to the season or chef preferences. The service is good and the desert pastry case is a work of true art with the most delicious looking and tasting things. This place is worth a visit.

but good variety, fast service, great wines and the desserts are awesome! Next time I would go for dessert and wine just because i'm a dessert freak.
