The staff is welcoming and attentive. Food here has been consistantly good in our past visits. I had the filet mignon and mashed potatoes with garlic. My wife had the filet also but as part of the $65 prix fixe menue.Escargot, filet and mash, the chocolate walnut house made tart and a glass of wine. I love the bread here... More

I am hesitant to be too positive since this neighborhood bistro is already in high demand! But each time I go there, the food surprises me in its deliciousness. This time I had the mushroom ravioli as an apetizer and it was wonderful. The baguette had the crunchy crust I love. The main dish on my $40 3 course menu... More

5 of us went for New Years dinner. All the food we had was outstanding. Not a marginal dish the whole night. The pacing was great, not to fast or slow. The service was excellent. A few comments that are not food related. The parking was not very good. We had a hard time finding a spot. The cold air... More

The food at this small, quaint restaurant was outstanding! We enjoyed the three course lunch, starting with amazing French onion soup, I loved the delicately prepared pork chop served over fresh green beans accompanied by delicious potatoes, and the chocolate mousse was amazing! Everyone in our party of four tried something different, and we were all pleased. The service was... More

I was born here so I have some cred. Everything is great but I love mussels even though they have all the favorites, escargot steak tartare, and lots of other great appetizers. I had Salmon in a dill sauce with artichokes and my daughter had duck confit which were both awesome. The salmon was cooked just like I like the... More

Came here due to Groupon offer. Been driving past this place for many years and I've always been curious so when Groupon offered discount, I jumped at the chance. The ambiance was very nice and intimate. I love the bright colors and the dining tables. Romantic and elegant! Service was nice but when we came, there was only one staff... More

Not too busy at lunch time. Came at noon and only three other tables. Service was very friendly. Good selection of crepes and salads on lunch menu. Had some bigger entrées if you want a bigger lunch.

Impromptu dinner because we were in neighborhood and Open Table showed availability. Delightful service and ambiance including music (Piaf). Escargot the most wonderful, tender (?wine poached) in delicious sauce, with plenty of crispy baguette for dipping into. Some specials of tuna carpaccio with arugula and truffle oil, and duck breast were great. Bonus of small parking lot adjacent to restaurant.... More

The food here is excellent. The atmosphere is both romantic and at the same time family friendly... It reminds me or little bistros in France. It is off the tourist route and thus really one of the neighborhood gems. Service is very friendly and noise level is such that one can actually have a conversation. Extensive wine list but no...
