I went there recently with friends for brunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. I thoroughly enjoyed the food, service & company. It was out of the ordinary as I didn't know what to expect but as mentioned thoroughly wonderful & delicious.

Interior was small, but passable. Food was copious but not amazing, One server for the whole place tried hard. Staff's kids running around everywhere even after 8pm on a summer Friday night. Promised entertainment never happened. No reason to return.More

Menthe et Couscous is a narrow but comfy little spot in the St. Denis area. Not sure how popular it is, as on the night we were there, we were the only diners. It was fairly late on a Sunday evening though. That said, we...More
