“Huge breakfast. Excellent coffee”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

This is a frenchstyle breakfast restaurant - wait till you get seated place. I got an omelette with ham and cheese that could have feeded a whole army. Had to leave most of it. And fresh fruit that was wonderful. Ordered Cafe au lait but got a big cup of espresso that actually was very good. A bit expensive

“Nice and popular place for Lunch”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Good food. Good service. It was a bit crowded on Saturday for lunch because it was the weekend and popular.

“Best Place Near Theater/Union Square Area”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We have tried Zingari (horrible), Scala's (a factory, with lots of chef turnover and noise--food can be great but the prices are high), Grand Cafe (bad food and noisy), and bunch of others. In the end, this is our choice for pre-theater dining near Union Square. Service is always reliable, wine list even by the glass is pretty good, prices are reasonable, and the food is predictable and good--not exceptionally over the top, but good. Escargot and salad frisee are particularly nice, chicken is always a little overcooked. Onion soup is great. No surprises. Always honor the reservation promptly. A full bar with a good choice of vodkas. This is where we eat in S. F. in this area.

“A genuinely French restaurant in decor, style, food and service”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

We loved everything about this restaurant. We had Brunch on a buzzy Sunday. The atmosphere was so French and the service and food were top notch.

“Wonderful Brunch”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Great brunch and outdoor cafe! The food was amazing (I had the french toast + a double latte) and the environment allowed you to linger a bit.
