We did the tasting menu for $55 and it was well worth it. Every course was delicious and very well prepared. This is a gem of a restaurant especially if you enjoy French food.

We joined friends here for dinner, last week. They are regulars, but this was our first visit. The food was quite good. The oeuf du pecheur was amazing: the mussels in egg and cream were rich and delicious. My trout was very good.
