The concierge warned us this would be a typical French old style cuisine and told us there are many other alternatives for good French Cuisine - he was right! Unless you like the table side show and basic tasteless non-innovative food go to this place....More

Friendly yet very professional staff, fine wine list and very fresh and superbly prepared dishes. I particularly liked the smoked salmon, the filet mignon Continental flambée and the maple sugar pie.
