Just a wonderful evening with family and all our French faves: escargot, pate, steak tartare, boeuf bouguignon and cassoulet. And a yummy Pouilly Fume ...

Server was attentive, welcoming and knowledgeable. Wascsorry to discover the Steak Sandwich, which in the past was so great...had been changed. Tried it, but found it not as good. Will try something else on my next visit.

Lovely ambience. There are various games you can take to your table to play. They have a few types of drink flights. Breakfast sandwiches are good but small. Went for brunch but brunch, breakfast, and all day menus were all available for ordering.

Lovely little place - sat outside in the back which was nice. There was only one person waiting tables but she was pretty efficient and kept things moving. I had the short ribs and polenta - very good. The ribs were cooked to perfection. Could have used a bit more seasoning but that could also just have been me and my palate. Wine selection was decent. Would definitely recommend for an intimate semi-casual date night.

The food, ambiance, and service at this restaurant are fabulous. The servers anticipated our needs- we never had to try to grab their attention - and the food was outstanding. The eggplant chips were an unexpected highlight.
