Great service. Attentive staff. Fresh hot baguettes were delicious sopping up the garlic butter pesto from the Escargot appetizer! Steak Frites and Duckbreast special was excellent. Mussels were ok. Creme Brulee classic and the Souffle tasted more like Panna Cotta We didn't feel rushed but it was a bit noisy. Great place for family gathering and other events. Would return.

This place will most likely be absolutely packed on a Sunday. It is absolutely worth the wait. The brunch specials are very large, and easily shareable. My personal favorites are the Berkshire Pork Hache, and the Croque-Madame. The Madame is HUGE. Be sure you bring a friend to help finish this massive plate. The cocktails for brunch are interesting as well. Below is a Rum, coffee, and I believe orange juice. It sounds like it will not work but on the wait staff’s suggestion it was ordered. Surprisingly the flavors meshed well together and left us ordering more.

Overall the atmosphere is delightful, a bit of a 1920s feel. Peaceful, but a little loud when crowded. Definitely place a reservation ahead of time if you can.

We love Gaslight so when my boss was here from DC took him here for dinner. The food great as always steak tartare great, spatleze great, mixed green salad great. The mains trout good, moules frites great as always and the roasted chicken good but why change the fantastic sauce to an okay Asian one? Dessert we usually never do but tried them and finally much better. But the table really. Wanted to sit outside but GM Greg called saying outside seating closed but would have a great table inside. Well I asked for a banquette on my reservation and what did I I get a table in the bar. Terrible I would have complained but not with my boss there and also every banquette was free when we were seated. So Greg not a good table.

The noise in this restaurant makes it impossible to either enjoy the food or have a good conversation. We chose it as a place to take good friends from Paris, and it turned out to be an enormous embarrassment. Loud, obnoxious rock music plays while diners have to raise their voices to be heard. The result is an unbearable din. The food is not bad and, and while the staff worked hard to accommodate us, we cannot recommend it and will not return.

Very cool atmosphere and authentic French menu with all the classics. The setting was laid-back - our group had a baby with us and we were totally comfortable being up and around to keep him happy :). The service was very attentive and the food was delicious! A good option for larger groups as well as couples.
