Nice and quiet at the time we went. Rarely disappointed with anything I order. Lunch and dinner menus are completely different.

The service and ambiance were superb. Our meals were delicious. Allow time while you are there since the chef's creations are for sure from scratch. Best meal we had while in ridgecrest. Reservations a must!

Great food, good atmosphere, amazing owner and wait staff. My wife had the pasta and I had the stroganoff. Both were excellent. And the layer vegetables topped with cheese was phenomenal. Thanks

A place of this caliber is rare to find, it is the type of place you always hope to find. While in town on business my colleagues and I were very happy to have found this place. It is small, intimate, family owned French restaurant...More
