We often pass by this restaurant at the end of along day when we are tired and haven't thought about what we will do for dinner. We poke our noses in the door and we always get a really lovely greeting and somehow a table is found for us. The food is delicious and we leave feeling refreshed.

Very accommodating staff. Menu has plenty of options. There are daily specials (today was beef cheeks and a Nutella pear tart). THe steak frites was tasty. The fries must be fried in beef fat. Yum The desserts were good. And they serve Berthillon ice cream! Good but not great.

We stopped by at 9pm for dinner, I speak French well, but they refused to answer in French, I we ended up speaking French and English the entire time !!! I ordered a bottle of wine and the waiter let me taste it, but poured wine for my wife before I approved the wine, and ignored my protest. They cleared... More

An elegant and trendy brasserie with exceptional service. Not typical in that they seem familiar with the concept of sharing plates and even have menu items suggested for sharing. The artichoke cream soup was delicious as was the salmon and the sinfully rich mashed potatoes. Our server was professional and attentive and we felt welcome and at home.

How on gods green earth can fizzy water cost as much as wine? Please enlighten me? Should have had wine, God knows how much that was! Overpriced and pretentious.

Wasn't appetizing and flavorless food. Must be what meal I chose since my hubby seemed to like his food. Service was good. Not sure why it takes so long to get the check and then for them to pick up the check so we can go. That one took as long as the meals being prepared and delivered to us.... More

we sat on the couch for a double table. despite the fact that the restaurant was full for a third, we were asked to sit facing each other at a one table. then finding out that we are not going to thoroughly eat suggested to fall down from the couch and sit at a table by the road. each dialogue...

Visited for dinner. Service was very good, and my steak was extremely good, but other dishes were just average and all left hungry (small portions not too surprising though). For the prices paid, we had hoped for more. We were seated inside and felt a bit like they were just getting us in. They were very nice about it, but... More

This café was next door to our apartment, and was a nice place to relax. They had excellent espresso and latte's. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the morning with a fresh baguette and coffee. They get very busy in the afternoon, but still a good place to chill out.
