Very nice quaint and somewhat quiet place. Very good service, well priced portions. Our beef Bourguignon was good but was lacking spices and any vegetables beside potato. It was served as described on the menu. Chocolate mouse was large and excellent.

This is the real deal -- a French bistro run by a French family. The food is excellent, fresh, local ingredients, and dinner served at a European leisurely pace. The menu is not extensive because everything is made fresh. We had a cauliflower soup, gnocci...More

We dined here recently for the second time since it changed owners. The menu is limited but the food was wonderful. They did remove several items from the old menu that my husband particularly liked but he still enjoyed his meal.
