I thought this one of the best meals we have had in NE. We dined on a cold Wednesday evening, the first day they are open in the week and the dining room was packed. We also had a great server who wasn't over the...More

These guys definitely encompass all the good things about being small, using local produce, etc. The food is delicious and the atmosphere if nice as well. I've heard others complain about the staff (being snooty) but I've never noticed them being ANY WORSE than ANY...More

This small bistrot serves good food, mainly but not exclusively French. There's a lot of excellent farm to table produce. If you sit at the wrong table, it can be very noisy. Other tables are quiet.

Chef Dan may not be the regular chef anymore but does not really matter. The meals are always consistently creative and perfected prepared and served. Service is top notch, bar with full service now, so what more could you want?

Bistro Les Gras is not strictly a French-style bistro, but offers bistro-style food from several cuisines. The menu is compact but varied. If you have a chance to try the veal sausage, do so.

It may be my ignorance of French cuisine, but the dishes my wife and I ordered were not exciting. We both ordered fish, which was cooked very nicely. But the sauces and sides weren't that interesting to us.

It is very noisy here, and the menu is very limited. Staff are unpolished and not aiming high enough. Prices are very high. All that said, my dish -- Mussels in a cream broth -- was absolutely delicious.
