The menu here is very French with options such as organ meats and exotic recipes and sauces that we don't find many places around here. Staff is friendly and service is excellent. The only drawback is that they are closing permanently on 16 Dec 2017.

Our favorite restaurant in the Boston area and we are very sad to learn that they will be closing in December. We enjoyed our meal as always, and only found out this news the next day. Definitely want to go back at least once more!

We went for dinner on a Thursday night- ordered a drink and ordered. Didn't even get half way through our drink when our dinner came. Fantastic food but seemed very rushed. Not as relaxing as we would have liked
