Very cute bistro with adequate service and nice small menu of traditional French selections. We had very good dinners, and the portions were large enough that a main course was plenty of food, with a bottle of delicious French wine, of course. Lovely informal evening.

Neighborhoody restaurant with French theme. Have gotten bad service in past but this trip service was good. Food well prepared and drinks (especially the Mules) were great.

Very friendly, great breakfast on Christmas morning. Much better option than breakfast in a hotel. Great cappuccino. Atmosphere is intimate, French cafe style. You won't be rushed from your table, at least on Christmas morning!
