    We first tried this local restaurant on a whim, because my husband happened to be at our front door when someone was placing flyers around the neighborhood. We received a warm welcome from the host, and friendly service from the staff. The food is Alsatian - French with a German flair - and delicious; and there's a nice wine and beer list. The decor is relaxed without being overly casual. There's indoor and outdoor seating, and a fireplace at the back. We were so pleased we took some friends there a few weeks later, and we had an equally enjoyable time.

    Service is good at this spot that has seen many restaurants come and go. 2 out of 3 of us think this one will be short-lived, too, because the food is not particularly distinctive nor that true to Alsatian cuisine. The Tarte Flambee is a poor version of those I've eaten in Strasbourg, Ulm and even the Black Forest food truck, with what seems like steamed onions on top, and little browning. Spatzle with mushrooms were very rich, nicely chewy and better. The chicken-salmon-burger entrée offerings don't say "Alsace!", nor do the salads and most of the entrees. We had a nice Pinot Blanc at a good price.

    The restaurant is cozy and comfortable. Decor is classy and sexy. The waitstaff was just ok. We ordered French fries, a flatbread and a ceasar salad. Fries came out withing minutes but the rest of the food took a long time. Other tables that sat after us got their food much sooner and it was obvious the owner/manager saw us looking around that he went to the back and came out with our food instantly. Follow up to see if we needed anything was slow and would have made a big difference. Overall I will go back for the food and the atmosphere but it could have been a 5 star experience.

    Great service, unique food, and pleasant ambiance. A welcome addition to the neighborhood, and definitely worth a trip from Manhattan! The two owners are passionate and knowledgable and very friendly.
