So happy to find this restaurant. Extremely good service. Wonderfully delicious food. Exceptional menu (we went for Brunch before a Red Sox game) especially the escargots, boards of charcuterie, paté, cheeses. Warm, freshly baked breads. Scrumptious omelettes. Great wine list. We could not have been...More

For me, a Coquille St. Jacques is a good test for a restaurant that claims to be preparing traditional French cuisine. Theirs was sub-standard. It was more of a second-class risotto without a shell. The cream of broccoli, however, was very good.
