I love this French restaurant! The ambience and food are exceptional. Especially the ratatouille! We enjoyed celebrating our birthday here. We will be back!

Would come back again. The food was great, not the very best French food I’ve ever had but definitely good quality. The service was good but not great- it felt like they were rushing us through. Our server (and all the staff) was very nice and attentive, but our entree’s came out immediately as we finished our appetizer, and they brought the desert menu before we had finished our entree. Probably nothing a little training can’t resolve.

Beautiful industrial decor inside (we did not make it to the roof top bar which seemed pretty popular), but if you want a booth you need to request it ahead of time. We thought the service overall was excellent. Our waiter recommended the Brussel sprouts appetizer which was outstanding, but mind you it was huge, came out piping hot with loads of fat cut panchetta. We also had the calamari which was good, not amazing. I shared a burger with my husband which was quite yummy, I really like the bun they used and the meat was lean and flavorful. My friend had the carrot and beet salad she loved, the fries were thin and excellent. My only complaint was the wedge salad dressing was really salty, it also had panchetta but it wasn’t what was causing the extreme saltiness. Get the dressing on the side would be my recommendation. That was the only negative, so if we are up in Long Beach again, would definitely come back.

Salmon was too salty. Wagyu burger didn’t taste as juicy as expected. Brussel sprouts were delicious. Not recommended for taking parents who have really high dining standards.

LOVE this restaurant, mainly because they serve dishes that you don't see on every restaurant menu. Their food is cooked well, and is very flavorful. We ate here a year ago (also during the Long Beach Grand Prix weekend), and it was again a busy night. The portions seem to be bigger this year than last year, and everything was tasty, plated beautifully, and well-priced. The service is always spot-on, so nothing to complain about (oh, maybe the 4% mandatory service charge on top of the standard gratuity). We will be back. Our group recommends the filet with crab, chicken fricasse, beef bourginone, duck breast, short ribs, bone marrow, wedge salad, and OF COURSE the amazing brussel sprouts...yum!! This year they had a guy with a guitar singing and he sounded great. He was a little loud which made it difficult to have a convo with the person a couple seats away, but we enjoyed the live entertainment.

Shannon is the best! Stellar service for our private party of 20. Definitely went above and beyond to make my fiance's birthday dinner fun and enjoyable. Needed to fix something on the cake we brought and she made it happen. Was happy with all of her recommendations. Loved the character of the interior / main dining hall. Was seated in the back by the fireplace so we were comfortable and cozy all night. The live music was really good too. Overall a great experience and would love to come back.

Neither out waiter or the bar tender could answer our questions about THEIR drinks on the menu. The waiter legit rolled his eyes at us and then was horrible service thru out. Ordered the marg flat bread and I have had toaster struddles that tasted better. The only redeeming thing was the brussel sprouts. We left and finished dinner at a different spot

Came here with a group of six for dinner the other night. It was a Friday at 7pm it was neither empty nor packed.

Sat upstairs for it seemed like a more interesting vibe and I had been there before.

Service upstairs was scattered. Delays on order drinks, no settings when food was served and one entree (a salmon salad) came out 45 minutes after the other mains.

Food menu is limited to upped bar food, you can’t order from the full menu downstairs on Friday or Saturdays.

Overall it was very meh. For drinks it is a good place to play games and chill, for a dinner you are probably better off downstairs.

Got there early had a drink at the bar. We like to craft cocktails at home so we do like a bartender that likes to explain what he's doing. Sean was great! Gave us many tips. Our dinner was great and we loved the charcuterie board.. My only ciritic is that the Caesar said was medic i rest best and would not order again....very bland. Loved everything else.

Great meal. Took a client and we had a total party of 7. Started with the seafood towers and charcuterie trays as appetizers. Both were good size portions with great selections. I had the lamb chops which were cooked and seasoned perfectly. For a side we had the Brussell Sprouts which were amazing. Everybody else loved their entrees and we all left in a food coma. Would definitely recommend the restaurant.

This place is very fashionable but they don't act like it: we were treated as if they had just opened and they were just glad we had dropped in, a very refreshing attitude. Food was excellent. The baked brie with fig compote is a good light meal for two and the grilled beef marrow was, if anything, superior to the version of this dish I had at Tavern on the Green in Manhattan. An excellent wine recommendation (the house's own label) admirably complimented both. Desserts were substantial and satisfying. An imposing steampunk aesthetic really pleased my date, who likes such things, and I rather liked it too. I recommend it.

Restaurant is as beautiful, the portions of food was just right. All 5 of us shared plates we individually ordered, and we enjoyed each plate. Brussel sprouts were amazing!!!! Our server was super attentive, and the food runners were helpful as well. Love love love ! ALSO! Our booth was the icing on top of the cake! Great for picture taking and I loved how close we all were to one another but distant enough to still converse.

Everything we ordered came out perfect. We told our waiter that we had limited time and had to leave at a specific time to catch a show. He made sure we were right on schedule. We ordered calamari (gluten free!), shrimp and grits, steak and fries, and lamb chops. All came out perfect. Food, ambience, and service were all excellent.
