“Excellent Cocktails”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

We discovered this place last year when we ventured to Brooklyn. It's your typical french bistro atmosphere...except, there is a bartender there named Tamahl. He's a wonderful host, Ask the guy for a recomendation and he'll ask you what you like and he'll craft you and awesome libation, plus they're like $8 or $9 This will continue to be a regular stop during our annual trip to NYC. Ask for Tamahl, you won't regret it. Its agreat place to burn a few hours with friends.

“Excellent French "bistro"”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Very good food, a little crammed but overall a very pleasant experience.
Went there with 7 friends and everyone was very happy with their food. I have been to this place a few times and it never disappoints. Fair prices and good food, what else can you ask for ?

“Very cosy and French”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Cosy and French bar and restaurant with live music at evenings. Service was a little "French" (arrogant) and their burger could not be recommended - the French should stay away from that :-)

“Still going strong”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Since Robin du Bois closed this is now the go to French theme bistro on Smith Street. It is more contrived and business like but it does deliver. It is the most authentic design that you can forgive the neo-French food-court concept. But a lot of the staff are French and they are all professional and charming. The drink selection is high quality and reasonably priced, whether wine, beer or aperitifs. The food is standard Bistro fare plus they always have more ambitious specials. It's a very good place with very good prices. The only negative is that it can get crowded particularly for brunch.
On my last visit the quality and choice of specials was impressive. They still seem to be working hard to make every diner satisfied.
The out door dining is on two busy streets. It is good to see the people strollers but you also have tolerate the motor traffic.

“good is good, but restaurant is loud”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Visited last summer. The food is good, nothing to write home about, and prices are decent. However, the restaurant is pretty loud and my boyfriend and I had a hard time hearing each other.
