This was a very good restaurant, but it kind of ran its course as upscale French food. We didn't really go that often because it was a little too stuffy, and I think others felt the same. They are currently closed to change the concept, which I think is a fantastic idea, and we will be there as soon as... More

Love it, all my friends and my husband and I ate hear a lot. Great martinis, great service, good food, we all live in Crown Point IN but drive hear for a good meal and a nice place to eat outside in the summer. The only thing Valpo needs to reroute loud truck traffic that is a constant on the... More

This place is good for adults only. It is an upscale restaurant and prices reflect that. $100 for dinner for two is not out of line here. The dinning room is small and a bit crowded so I would not bring children here. The atmosphere is dim romantic lighting and the food is very good.

This meal wasn't what we expected at all. The menu has changed and we didn't see much that appealed to us. They ran out of salmon and cod. When we received the fish dinner, it was too salty. Would not recommend this restaurant.

We stayed in the songbird prairie bed and breakfast and had a voucher to visit this restaurant. The food was delicious, absolutely wonderful. But where they really stood out, above and beyond, was their wonderful service. They were attentive and made sure our visit was perfect. I would highly recommend this cafe to any!

Excellent menu with selection of french and french fusion type dishes. Servers friendly and able to make suggestions based off palate preferences. For example we were told that the meatloaf was good but it was "savory" with some customers commenting on a saltiness that she wanted us to be prepared for. We enjoyed our appetizer of grilled romaine with caesar's... More

Burger was hard and salty, fries were cold and hard. Crab cakes were just ok. Second time eating there. Never again. People think they can just slap some frozen products on the grill and it'll be great. Very wrong.

Elegant atmosphere, wonderful wine selection. Food is always fresh and tasty. From the French onion soup to the salads or fish..full of flavor. Presentation is colorful, prices are fair, deserts and coffee are the best!

I met friends here for dinner on a Friday night. The small restaurant was fairly empty when I arrived but quickly filled up. Service was fine, the somewhat small menu was fine, and the food was excellent. Some entrees are a bit pricy but most are not, and whatever you get, it's worth what you paid! A good beer and...
