This cute little french restaurant is my go to whenever I'm missing the cafes in France. Most of the wait staff is French, and the ambiance is very "French-esque" too. I absolutely love it.

Below Average at best - had read some reviews that were descent, but certainly didn't live up to them. Maybe this is the best this neighborhood has to offer but not up to the standard of other casual French dining venues in other parts WEHO, West LA, Sunset, etc... Very disappointed and a waste of $!

Good service after a minimal wait that yielded us delicious Eggs Benedict, but they repeatedly ignored our request to have the sauce delivered hotter with authentic French snootiness. Not a biggie since we acknowledged it might curdle (though it rarely ever does) and accepted the risk. Nonetheless, it remains a charming respite from the frenzy. That, alone, is a good reason to return. Area parking is tight, so be sure to read all signs if venturing into the surround neighborhood.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Los Angeles and they still delivers.
Nice atmosphere, nice food and good service.
If you want a relaxed restaurant this is the perfect place.

Came here for Dine LA week after hearing great things about the restaurant for years. Looks quaint and cozy and french. Bakery items as you walk in are very tempting. Service was friendly enough -- no complaints. Everything about the prix-fixe was just sort of okay. Plenty of food, but everything just should've tasted a bit better. The french onion soup actually had too much cheese, if such a thing is possible. Ultra heavy to eat and not frankly enough soup. Had the Moules frites to follow -- where again they were good but nothing special and i've definitely had better down in culver city. Tried a bit of my wife's lamb stew. I thought the lamb stew was served atypically on a plate in an odd off-white cream-ish sauce. Would've expected a bowl. Would've expected something more flavorful. Had them box up the desserts: chocolate flourless cake and lemon tart. The lemon was excellent and the chocolate was far too sweet and below average in taste. Definitely skip the chocolate flourless cake. All in all, if the bill had been a bit lower, i might be more forgiving. Felt like a lot of calories consumed on a meal that was good but nothing special.
