Perfect cooking!!!Have not had a better chocolate soufflé ever not even in France. The crab cake appetizer melts on your mouth. Coq a vin was the best. I am a believer I'm French food again5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFriday Night in Pacific PalisadesWe were greeted with warm smiles by the owner and the hostess. The owner is French and so were many of Friday night's dinner guests. The staff are young, enthusiastic, fast and get the details right on the first try. The bibb lettuce salad was nearly a full head of fresh, light greens with a vinagrette a tad bit heavy on the vinegar for my taste, but my wife loved it. The scallops were perfect, but slightly on on the cool side. The bread is excellent as is the butter. I cannot buy butter this flavorful. My wife had salmon which was served over peppers with a pepper/red sauce. Very tasty. I had steak. It was grass fed Angus--a bit cool, chewy and gamey but excellent. The chocolate souffle alone was worth the drive from San Diego.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMy second dinner in your restaurantMy second dinner in your restaurant in one month and definitely not the last one.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good preparation andVery good preparation and flavors, can get noisy when crowded, large windows make it appear more open than it is. Small menu, but varied and with a couple unique dishes, the salmon tartar is excellent. The wine menu is limited but well varied and usually there is a featured high quality wine that is featured by the carafe and half carafe. On Mondays it is "no corkage" night and all wines are half price. The wine prices are reasonable to begin with and a bargain in a restaurant like this at half price.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious, betterFood was delicious, better than expected. Only thing not perfect were the oysters. They weren't the freshest and the shucking left many broken shells. This needs to be better.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, the duck confitGreat food, the duck confit "cocotte" was spectacular.
