I have VERY mixed feelings about this 'Bistro'. This is a rather expensive place with very good service and atmosphere. The food is expensive - as is the wine - all of which is easily forgotten...IF the portion were not so... 'Petit'. Remember cuisine minceur?...More

This is our “go-to” restaurant for a special meal, be it birthday, anniversary, or just time out with friends. We feel transported to Paris, and are sure to get wonderful service and excellent food.

Delicious French food prepared by expert chefs. From starter to dessert, they offer dishes which are outstandingly savory. My wife had a lamb tenderloin that was tender, moist and tasty. Good side dishes, vegetables perfectly prepared. Good wine and cocktail list.
