I hosted a small business dinner and found the food and service to be great. The restaurant was lively but not too loud, and the menu offered plenty of choices without being overwhelming

Coc au vin was wow. Eggplant canape was good. Enjoyed the Pineapple coconut dessert. Good ambiance. Just disappointed with the lobster salad. Just didn’t like it.

Our second visit and excellent again. This time it was a Sunday and we had a slow paced dinner. I had the Black Sea bass & wanted every bite. My husband had steak frites and loved every bite as well.
