“Good Food; Bad Atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

This restaurant is a study in contrasts. The food is original, fresh, and very tasty. The roast pork sandwich is excellent; the fries are thin and flavorful; the eggs benedict are poached just right. So why will I stay away? Because the place fills up with extremely loud, guffawing people (maybe pretending to be drunk), taking pictures of each other and screaming across the tables. The service is also really sad: a single server was attending to the entire restaurant and also hosting. I suppose she was trying to keep up with the work overload. This is clearly an issue with the management which is either too cheap to hire an adequate number of servers, or so unpleasant that no one wants to work there. I would love to enjoy a local restaurant but won't return, good food and all.

“Very good food, average atmoshere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

We ordered the NY Sirloin and the salmon. Both our dinners were delicious and it had really good service. We went for an early dinner during the week so it was slow when we got there. Had an average small French restaurant atmosphere.
