This was a pleasant surprise in a small, historic section of Little Falls NY. We stayed in a suite upstairs, and came down to dinner, picking from a wonderful (though pricey) French menu. The food, presentation, and service were top notch.

Great place to go for an evening out especially when you are tired of fast food or chain restaurants. The menu is French cuisine and excellent! The waitstaff is courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend!

An absolute wonderful restaurant located right in the heart of Little Falls, NY. Chef James provides a large selection of French cuisine that doesn’t disappoint. Be sure to leave room for the Bread Pudding!

This was a nice, cozy inn with beautiful rooms - we stayed in the Boucase Studio - and just across the street was a nice view of the canal. Price was reasonable. We didn't get a chance to eat there. Our room included a living...More
