Okay ribs, sub-par fries, friendly but uninformed, inexperienced staff. I asked for a dry martini, and I got a glass of vermouth. The outside terrace is comfy on Saint-Sau's main drag.

Chicken was a touch dry but the sauce is good. Ribs were way better than the chicken. Would recommend the ribs for sure. Comes with many fries.

I think it depends on the night. For a weekend if probably wouldn't hurt but during the week you don't need to.
