Something is wrong when u ask for the things you ordered 2-4 times & you do not get them. The croquet madame was basically a ham & cheese on toast that they covered in sauce. Not even melted cheese!! All the seafood smelled fishy as...More

Lovely restaurant with very good service. The mussels were some of the best I have eaten. My only suggestion is to order any salad with dressing on the side as they tended to be over generous when pre dressing the salad.

We ate breakfast here with friends, ordering different kinds of pancakes and French toast with coffee. Everything was tasty and nicely served, but I had a hard time finding anything very French, much less Provençal, about the food. I somehow imagined the pancakes would be...More

I have not been there for brunch, but I would expect long lines. I don't know if you can phone for reservations. In my opinion, nearly any wait is worth it.
