I had the mussels and loup de mer with roasted potatoes and shaved leaks. Both were great. My wife had the salad special and Scallops St Jacques and really enjoyed both. Good wine list.

Very good food but sketchy service. Ordered dishes to share. Appetizer, salad and entree delivered at the same time in order to share. How does that work? Dishes were very good. Enjoyed the salad special and the trout.

This is a wonderful small restaurant with very authentic French food and a great, reasonable wine list. We also had great cocktails. Had the cassoulet- mmm and escargot! Very relaxing and not touristy
