This is the same facility as the old French Cafe but not the same quality. My wife had the Swordfish special and it was very salty and terribly overcooked I tasted it to confirm. When we mentioned it to our no personality waiter he would...More

This was an excellent meal without being heavy. Sat outside on the patio and had a delightful waitress who helped make decisions. Although you can purchase a bottle of wine and drink it there, we elected to have individual glasses. The food was great and...More

Love this little out of the way place. Carved from an old store emerges a store, wine shop, restaurant. You would think it might not know what it wants to become but it does. Very casual atmosphere, open cooking area, wine bottles from all over...More

Let me begin with a caveat: don't go here if you're in a hurry; grass grows faster. (Note, however, that the above is based on a single visit and might be horribly unfare.) My wife and I did not care about the wait. We went...More

We scooped up a patio table for two on a gorgeous spring evening and shared a small plate light dinner of radishes and butter and a potato and cauliflower raclette along with cold Pinot Grigio. Perfect weather, food and location -- we loved it.

Surrounded by a terrific wine selection is just the beginning. We enjoyed the bresaola ( air dried salted beef) and caprese sale with buffalo mozzarella. The bread and fresh butter arrive complimentary with your order. I noticed the bread and butter can be ordered as...More

This place is not for everyone but there is no better place for a night out. Country French Style food in a wine store. This is a slow pace relaxed atmosphere. Definitely not fast food in quality or speed. If you notice your waiter is...More

The ambiance of this restaurant is extraordinary. It is just one block off of the busy market area and seems romantic and almost hidden. Although they do not take reservations we were able to find a lovely cozy table on a cold Nebraska winter night....More
