Have been meaning to visit for years based on the menu. Finally made the visit from Chapel Hill to Durham. Very upscale/casual French bistro (depends how you view it - nice ambience but you don't have to 'dress up'). Great service and something for everyone....More

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!

The restaurant is located on 9th street, very close to the other restaurants. The appearance of the restaurant looks like a diner but it actually looks nicer inside. Food was fabulous! Will definitely come back!
