I love this restaurant and have eaten here probably a dozen times over the past 2 plus years. Yesterday the food at lunch was great, but the service was slow and inattentive. Other times the service shines and the food has been pretty average. The...More

Sunday late lunch for three, about $80 without alcohol. CLASSIC French bistro offerings, and we could have imagined being somewhere in the 6th. The menu is a bit confusing, with specials, then breakfast, then brunch, then lunch specials, then ala carte possibilities. I'm almost a...More

No dress code; the men in our party were not wearing ties or jackets and we women were casually dressed (jeans), not out of place. The clientele seems a bit older and the atmosphere a bit stuffy, if you don't mind that.
