This is a quaint restaurant with a nice ambiance. Service was great and food was delicious. Everyone in our party tried different things and not one complained. It is a little pricey, but you won't feel ripped off. Nice place for anniversary or celebratory dinners.

They did have foie gras the last time I was there. The entrees are country French, not Parisian French. So think stews and lamb shank.
