The restaurant is renamed “BL Brasserie”. Very decent place, excellent services, hot plates, great wine. Great food.

Dinner was fair. Portions small. Corkage fee $30 per bottle even if you buy a bottle of wine in their wine shop. Better food elsewhere and some restaurants charge $0 if you have local wine. Name changed to BL Brasserie. Try another restaurant.

Outstanding food! Went for lunch and it was magnificent! Shared the escargot which were likely the best escargot we’ve ever enjoyed. Even in France! I had six oysters on the half shell and she had the potato, goat cheese, leek, pine nut salad. Simply outstanding!

Really enjoyed the tasting menu here, few tables inside, had outdoor seating as well. Each dish was lovely and paired nicely with wine. The service was amazing!

The crispy crab risotto topped with shrimp was good. The pork chop had a fantastic sauce and was cooked passed medium, over done for me. Enjoyed the atmosphere and wine but the glass of pinot noir cost nearly as much as a bottle at home.

My husband and I were so looking forward to this experience and wow, how disappointed we left. It is clear that Chef has lost interest in providing a fine dining experience to his guests. We went on a Wednesday and one would think he'd have...More
