I went there for a dinner with friends. Good service and good food. I highly recommend the “raclette” meal if you like cheese as it is the perfect meal to enjoy time with friends or your spouse as you eat at your pace.

First item I ordered they were out of during brunch and one order came out totally wrong. Overall, food was good, but some hits and misses in our group.

We were in Buffalo for a conference and chose this place for dinner. The food was excellent. We shared French Onion Cheese Bread for an appetizer. It was a baguette topped with garlic butter, carmelized onions, and melted French raclette. We both had small plates...More

This was our first visit. Loved it! It's just a short walk to Shea's Buffalo and we had such an enjoyable meal pre-theatre. A great wine list - flights of wine are also available. We started with the brie and honey tartine. I had the...More

Although the acoustics are awful--don't come here if you want a quiet dinner--the food is very good, with much variety. It's possible to eat well here without spending a fortune, but more expensive options are available. The boeuf bourguignon is a safe bet for US...More
