Nice restaurant with a Belgium flair and imported beer from Belgium. Dishes are varied with Belgium and French cuisine. But, desserts are American. There's also a nice sitting in the side walk for coffee outside with friends.

The good, service and ambiance are all fine but the overall experience is not a French Brasserie. We had the 3 course tasting menu offered on Tuesday evenings. First was a bonus, smoked tuna on a crustini. Delicious. Second course was stuffed peppers. Tasty. Rock...More

We had a party in the back room for our grandsons graduation from University of Richmond. We made reservation a couple months in advance and it was excellent for a large group. They can easily accommodate that number.
