I used to always come here when I am in the area for work when I just need an simple dinner, but not after tonight. It's a French chain but has been pretty good in the past. This time, it took forever to get my dinner and the duck was way overcooked (no pink at all). I always get my... More

I visited the place with a friend after a whole day shopping at les Quatre temps. This place i must say i enjoyed sumptuous beef and the waitress spoke English and was very friendly and helpful. A place i would definitely visit again!!

Many options to choose from and not too expensive. Reasonable quality, but more for a quick meal, not a fancy romantic dinner.

Food quality really poor. I ate chicken filets which were totally burned from outside and not chewable from inside. Burgers were mediocre. Overall undefined restaurant- too expensive to be called fast food and doesn't offer variety for gourmet resto. Wondering how and why it exists! The only positive was the waitress who was very friendly with kids

I was extremely dissapointed in my visit to this restaurant. I chise the steak I wanted and pointing to the picture of how I wanted it cooked. After about 40 minutes we were advised that there was a problem in the kitchen and as a result food was being delayed however, when the food did arrive, it was cold and... More
