We were here a little over a year ago, and made a promise to come back then. And we are glad we did - we had the best restaurant meal in over a year! To start, we discovered that they had one of our favorite...More

Wonderful food! We had Tourdenos,and it was fantastic. The wait staff took extra care to explain our choices, and they were able to accommodate both gluten and dairy allergies. The salads were amazing, and the vegetables were al dente. All in all, we were very...More

A French restaurant serving typical French cuisine and doing a very good job. Relaxed environment, we had driven all day and went as we were. Good food and good wine.

The food is really good and the service is excellent. Great for a family experience or romantic dinner. Good wine list and the food is well prepared. It is a favorite spot regardless of the occasion.

We were very disappointed with this experience. Other reviews had mentioned that the tables were close together. That is an understatement. There are literally inches between the tables from side-to-side. The service is pretty good mostly because the server is probably at one of the...More

The wine, a Pinot Grigio and a Pinot Noir were excellent. The Escargo were small and had not much flavour, they could have done with a few more herbs in the butter. The mushroom soup was bland no excitement here.. The place was overcooked as...More
