Great service, great food, great vibe - intimate, yet lively. My only complaint was that there were too many delicious sounding options to choose from. Stuck with French - Onion Soup and Veal Francaise. Both were terrific. I'd go back in a heartbeat!

Our first time here. Food was VERY good. From our salads, to the French Onion Soup ( thick with onions) , main dishes Scallops, Veal, Chicken, Fish, all very well made and presented.

This happens to be another favorite restaurant I love to go with my husband and friends. Not only do they have the best food, their cocktails are so yummy! The staff are wonderful too!! Make sure you try the oysters for an appetizer!!!

The meal was delicious, the service was attentive; the atmosphere in the old section was cozy and much quieter than the new modern side. Perhaps they could add some items to absorb the sound on the sleek modern section.

This is one of our go-to places, but on our last visit, the service was not what we expect from this restaurant. We felt like orphans... that were passed from server to server, no one checking to see if the food was ok, one appetizer...More

Every course was creative, visually beautiful, delicious. Servers are excellent. The little hot rolls are wonderful, served hot with crunchy crust. The fried oyster appetizer is amazing, served in the shell, with spicy mayo, cold crisp veggies, and topped with caviar; and fried for just...More

Bring a megaphone if you sit in the new area. It is so loud you can barely hear the person across from you.
