We were a group of 10 ladies having brunch. We ordered from the brunch menu, lunch menu and dessert. The brunch items were just very average, taste-wise, not really outstanding, but the price certainly isn't. Extra point for very attentive service and not adding the...More

Food was not as expected and service was poor. The recommended special for Saturday was dry and it did not taste as suggested. The main dish was brought before the table was cleared. It was rude and unexpected. We had all the dirty dishes on...More

Three of us had dinner on a rainy night so we could not sit at the inviting outside tables. My wife had the house specialty, steak frits, and except for the bearnaise sauce, which I thought plain, was excellent. Our companion had the chicken grande...More

Our meal was good and met our expectations but our waiter was very inexperienced and detracted from our enjoyment of the meal. Parking garage is a bit of a walk (no fun in a rainstorm) but was free after 5:00 PM which was important.

I went for a business lunch. it was quite enough to hold a conversation. The food is awesome and light. Not heavy portions, and desserts are out of this world.

The food was delicious and the service was great. It was not overwhelmingly French and it had a little something on the menu for everyone. Very nice atmosphere, but not overly formal and stuffy. I will certainly return.
