I hadn't been then in years because of an awful experience, but wanted to give them another chance. Sadly it didn't change my mind. The atmosphere seems so cool but the quality is sub par. Too bad because it looks so cool.

I came here for a thoroughly enjoyable meal. The setting surprised me for how down to earth it was for a French restaurant. The setting could pass for a Mexican restaurant. Extensive wine list. We were served by a French gentleman who was very helpful....More
