We heard great things about this restaurant (and a few not great ones) and wanted to try something different. Unfortunately, we left rather disappointed. The service was excellent, though overbearing at times. I felt like my water was refilled every time I so much as looked at the glass. The food was very good, but it did was not good... More

The prix fixe lunch was fabulous, service was attentive without being intrusive, and the surroundings were charming! Warm Roquefort cheese tart with carmelized apples, green salad, boeuf bourguignon with spaetzle, le kougelhopf en neige au kirsch a l'Alsacienne with a glass of wine. A special way to celebrate the holidays!

My wife and I dined there a few weeks ago with my father who was visiting. This place was recommended to my wife by a friend and to my father as well from an old high school friend of his who joined us. He told my father that they come here all the time. The restaurant is warm and beautiful.... More

We had a pre fixe meal here and the food was not memorable. The Caesar salad is an up charge and it was not edible. Poor lettuce quality, not quite iceberg but close. Shocking I know. I couldn't believe it was even brought to the table. Lamb and lobster salad weren't bad. Asked for lamb to be prepared medium rare.... More

They grow their own vegetables and the food is consistently excellent. I love the mesclun salad with the VERY garlicy crouton (1 is all you need).

Great food and service. Not stuffy, uppity gourmet. Might see people is tuxedos or just casual. Get the soufflé. Worth it. I have been there as a couple and an office private party. Would go back but probably not at a peak time like Valentine's. Just for a no occasion dinner. Well worth it.

The food and service are always amazing. Ask for Freddy. The garlic toast with cottage cheese is to die for. I always pick Le croustillant au Roquefort (Roquefort tart) for my starter. I could eat that every day. Delicious. Even though I just had roquefort, I can't resist the Roquefort salad. All the lettuce and veggies are fresh. Jacques has... More

We have visited this restaurant in the past and we were thrilled with the food and the total experience. For us, this is a place to visit for special occasions, but we'd visit more often if money wasn't an object. The staff knew it was a special night for our friends 40th birthday and they were super nice and attentive... More
