Disappointing. I thought that a French cafe would be delicious; I got a six inch long sandwich with four Carl Buddig style slices of "roast beef".

Hello there, Sorry that you had a bad experience at the restaurant. You are right, we do the French onion soup differently. We do not use wine but champagne, and we only use a light beef base. The purpose is to make the soup healthier...More

This restaurant recently changed hands from a very nice French fellow that ran it for years. We were happy that much of the core menu remained but with a few new items added, just enough to signal that a subtle, but positive change had occurred....More
