This is clearly a placed loved by its regulars. Solid French food. Stalwart servers and an unexpected goth bartender. I’m glad I had the experience.

This small French restaurant is easily identified by the large French flag in front. Reservations are a must. It is small. The food was on point, good value and helpful wait staff.

We were recommended this place by my sister from Long Island and by golly it lived up to her description. Very traditional French style bistro, small but excellent menu. The soufflé was to die for, the ladies were adorable very attentive and chatty. This was a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Make a booking so not to be disappointed.

Lovely little French restaurant! Only noticed it due to the French flag outside the building, otherwise it doesn’t look much at all from the outside.
Inside it’s really quaint and lovely staff, nice pictures everywhere, lots of jigsaw puzzles everywhere too! Very reasonable prices, small menu but enough to choose from. Would highly recommend.

I absolutely adore this place!
The fabulous family that runs it are not only French, they’re quintessentially French!
This is a very small place with the best food! Seriously, very, very small.
Very bistro. Small tables. The whole place seats maybe 30 people.
Make reservations and don’t be late. Or at least have the common sense to call and let them know.
The food is remarkable.
If you want their famous Soufflé, order it with your appetizers!
I always leave happy, and overly full with rich French food!
