Delicious French food prepared by expert chefs. From starter to dessert, they offer dishes which are outstandingly savory. My wife had a lamb tenderloin that was tender, moist and tasty. Good side dishes, vegetables perfectly prepared. Good wine and cocktail list.

Our group of 9 made a run on the Dick dishes-four deliciously crispy duck confit dinners and one duck breast dish were happily consumed. Two special short rib dishes did not disappoint with fresh horseradish and mashed potatoes. Classic steak frites and grilled shrimp rounded...More
