“French Eating”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

This was a return visit on a different Groupon voucher. First visit all good and a pleasant experience. Last Sunday a different story. Raining NO umbrella stand asked if they could put them somewhere? On the ground in the courtyard!!!! No hand towels in the mens. Hot and humid had to ask them to put the air on. So the entree is share.....this is not a problem except people do not want to share soup if you are going to do this make it possible with relevant share choices. Not enough bread to share with then pate and last visit we had a variety. Mains...my husband's beef cheeks all good, duck dry and skin not crisp mash look like it had been thrown on the plate along with the red cabbage trimmings. Dessert very nice but presentation sloppy, side salad think the dressing might have been missing. NO offer of water. Coffee just warm. The staff are young and obviously trying to do their best but need more training. I think there may have been a change in chef since last visit or it was his day off as it was Sunday. Thought we had found a little gem sorry we will not be returning.

“Terrible. Do not go”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

We got a groupon 5 course degustation which sounded fantastic. Big error. As my husband said you paid half price and you got half the service. Over one and a half hours we had only received two courses and after waiting another half hour for sorbet I was getting more and more frustrated. The food was average and I felt more sorry for those on there second course when we left nearly 3 hours later. I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone. It really makes me question if there is any value in those vouchers.

Service was a joke where they took 20 mins to even clear your table between courses. Did I mention this was only on a Monday night?

“Incredibly rude manager”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

This is just a grubby Groupon ripoff merchant who takes your money but has no respect for his customers.
Avoid this restaurant - they have no sense of hospitality at all.

“Very Rude”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Very bad customer service, don't go here. The waiters were rude, food was awful - it was cold and tasted awful. The service was not as you would expect. Much better restaurants out there
