Small, intimate bistro with great food. Nice ambience with mix of tables and booths plus few seats at bar area. Also an outside patio in summer months. Nice for quiet couples dinner or for small group of friends. Very popular so reservations recommended. Amiable staff.

Dropped in with a friend to have a lunch beer. We sat at the bar and had beer/wine. Nice service. Added a French onion soup - pretty good. The rest of the menu looked good so will go back and try something else soon.
