Besides serving darn good "regular food" they also serve a variety of Crepes, which makes for interesting eating.

This place is like it was removed from France and out into Aspen. Decor is amazing, service was amazing, food was amazing! Can’t wait to come back here!

The perfect dinner was... a bottle of Chateuneuf Du Pape, French onion soup, steak fondue, Midnight in Paris dessert and the funky-named dessert that I can't pronounce. We had a wonderful candlelit dinner and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Lots of smiles. Would visit again.
