Stopped by after MLS adult summer camp on a whim, and what a great idea! Fabulous extra cheesy French Onion Soup, delicious glass of champagne, topped off with chocolate mousse for desert! Staff were very patient with us as we shut the place down! Merci!

Great place! This is about as authentic a representation of a Parisian bistro as you could get outside of Paris. Outdoor seating under an awning is nice if it isn't too hot. Indoors is crowded with small bistro tables. Seafood like oysters on the half...More
