The food and service were good. The decor is pretty. We ate in the cellar which was nice but dark. We followed dinner with a drink on the bar side which is a nice, relaxed environment. Reservations are recommended.

Quaint and cozy. We ordered the house salad and escargots. My hubs had the ribeye and fries. I had the shrimp crepe crevettes. We shared a profiterole for dessert. It was all very good. We enjoyed ourselves, the dinner, and the service.

We went in for drinks but also ended up ordering desert. By recommendation of the super friendly bartender, we got the most delicious beignets with a delectable plum dipping sauce, which I highly recommend ordering if available. All the drinks were well made, especially the...More
