“Fun brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

Jumping little joint on the weekend for brunch
Full of attractive and prosperous 20 and 30 somethings speaking French, Englsh, Spanish etc.
A bit of a fight / wait to get a table.
While the prices are not cheap, the quality is there and the service is prompt.

As long as you don't mind the crowds and you don't have a bone to pick with the prosperous few, you'll love it.

“Great but expensive brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

We went here for breakfast/brunch on a Saturday. The place was busy but the staff work very hard to get you a table quickly which I really appreciated. It is expensive but since we were on holiday, we didn't care, and I didn't think it was outragrous by any means. If you like sweets, I highly recommend their chocolate croissant - it is amazing! Decor is a little strange (giant bug on the ceiling?) but it's a cute place and a great place for breakfast.

“Getting a little full of themselves”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

I have been here several times for dinner and breakfast. The food is consistently good and the service is generally good but I feel like they have read their own press and think they are special at this point. It is expensive and not as good as other places close by that are half the fare, in my opinion.

“Pretty Good....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

This place was pretty good. It's cute inside -- I will say the giant bug (fake) on the ceiling was a little disturbing. Why would you make that part of the decor? Anyways. We ordered:

Beet Salad - this was delicious.
Frisee Salad - very bacon-y but yummy. My friend devoured this.
Branzino
Pork Tenderloin

It was good. Was it OMGAMAZING? No. But it was a solid meal and worth the value. Our service was also really good. I would say this isn't going to impress a french cuisine enthusiast but most people will walk away satisfied.
