This restaurant came with high expectations. The restaurant has a traditional French and marine vibe although the menu did not focus solely on seafood. We had a set menu and the staff help select a glass of wine to match each course. The food and...More

We approached this restaurant with a bit of trepidation given some of the negative reviews on tripadvisor. We had a wonderful time. The service was pleasant and professional and the food was worthy of a star. We had scallops to start and they were succulent...More
