Had lunch for 4 on a very busy weekend. We expected service to be a little slow but our meals arrived surprisingly quick. The salad portions are large enough to share and prepared very well. Sandwiches equally as good. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

Truly the best restaurant in town for lunch or dinner! Make reservations since they are only open a few hours a day! The food, ambiance and people are the greatest!

Nice and quiet at the time we went. Rarely disappointed with anything I order. Lunch and dinner menus are completely different.

The service and ambiance were superb. Our meals were delicious. Allow time while you are there since the chef's creations are for sure from scratch. Best meal we had while in ridgecrest. Reservations a must!

Beware of what you order, great service exceptional actually but be aware of way too much butter/oils in cooking, over cooked dishes, terrible onion soup ( consensus). French owner/operator who was very good, however way overrated for food. Not as good as other french restaurant...More

I always have the filet mignon, rare. It's always excellent! It is topped with either the peppercorn sauce, or garlic butter. Both are great, but I usually have the peppercorn sauce. My side is always the layered tomato... More
