We had a dinner with friends on a pretty busy Saturday night (the place was full). I walked in with a preexisting expectations set high based on other reviews and was initially a bit disappointed with the appetizers: I felt they somewhat lacked in taste, although not in presentation. However, I will admit that the main course (Duck Magret) was spot-on, although my wife was unmoved by their Halibut (no Sea Bass that night). The deserts were amazing all around. Also, keep in mind that their wine list is short (there's no other way to put it) and they were out of several choices that night. All in all, I did not feel disappointed, but not completely satisfied either.

The wife cooks while the husband runs the front end. Great food, and I like the husband, but all is not quite well, compared to Cafe Sparrow, located a very short distance away. The strip mall location is unfortunate.

Great meal in a cozy, warm environment. The food was perfectly cooked and delicious. Wine list interesting. French chef and very French restaurant without the attitude sometimes found in France. Great for a date or to bring your business partners.

Quiet and delicious. Surprisingly quiet on weeknights and delicious as ever. We find the quality of food and serving size to be exceptional. The value is in the flavors, service, presentation and selections. Our dinner bill with bottle of wine, two entrees and dessert was only $130 - this is unheard of for the quality.

Outstanding food - French with a California style. Excellent service as well. A lovely, quiet place for a fine meal.
