"Great experience. Menu has something for everyone.
My wife and I had the onion soup, cold artichoke salad, rack of lamb and the salmon.
We also had a delicious 2006 St Emillion for $70!
Everything was great. The lamb was like butter and the salmon was sooo delicious.
Cannot wait to go back when they open up the outdoor seating!"

"Our group of five loved the food but the service was terribly slow- two hours for lunch. One member of our party ordered the pasta bolognese and the brought the coq au vin. She just ate it rather than wait."

"Three of us had supper together on a Friday evening. We booked early (6.30pm) which was just as well, since by the time we left, the noise had increased considerably.
However, we were able to hold a reasonable conversation over a very pleasant dinner.
The salads were fine, but nothing extra.
I had the special, which was baked cod with snow peas and a red wine sauce. It was very good. My companions both ordered salmon which they enjoyed.
Creme brulé for dessert was fine but not out of the ordinary.
Based on my two standard tests of a good kitchen (green salad and creme brulé), I cannot rate the food any better than good.

"Very nice restaurant. Good food. Something for everyone on the menu. Very nice ambiance. Looks small from the outside but there are three levels and even a patio outside for the summer. Will def return. My fish was amazing and my daughters pate was enough for two and her chicken also. Took home the left overs. A very good neighborhood restaurant. Highly recommend. You won't be disappointed."

"This was my third visit, twice for dinner and once for lunch. All three times were enjoyable, but service is more efficient and pleasant in the evening. The food was consistently good."

"Everything about eating here-the menu, actual food and ambiance are excellent for a lovely neighborhood spot. They just need to not forget about you once they take the order. Very hard to get waiter's attentiont to order dessert or get the check. Not that they were too busy, either...just seemed a little too laid back."

"Went for a birthday dinner with 4 friends. My friend and I shared mussels for an appetizer and we each had the Sole Muniere - delicious. My boyfriend had Coq au Vin and loved it. Our other two guests are vegetarians and had plenty to choose from. The service was efficient and friendly.
My only criticism is the playlist - all cheesy '70's disco - it was so odd and out of place, it became distracting. A classic French dinner calls for some classic tunes- jazz from any era: Ella, Pops, Frank, Edith - anyone but the Bee Gees!
