    The Escargot here is amazing and that's my top dish at this restaurant. Their mac n cheese appetizer is pretty good too. Other than that I've had the duck entree, the duck appetizers and it was good but nothing outstanding. The Escargot on the other hand is outstanding and I've definitely stopped by just for that. Delish!

    L'Espress carries a select few foreign beers such as De Konick and Chimay that you don't find in too many restaurants. It's a nice touch. Food is always either good or decent. Great also as a late, late-night goto spot.

    This place has been around a long time, and there's a reason why. Consistently good food at reasonable prices. The other restaurants in the area are a good deal more expensive. I also like the selection and the vibe. The decor is definitely French bistro, although it's a little loud. It's nice that the windows open, so it's almost al fresco.
