Cute place, standard French bistro food, technically well prepared. But if you're a foodie like me you may well leave disappointed. As my husband said, they have good line cooks, but the Chef is not great

Food was very good but service was very slow. Waited an hour for food.

Bland food, nothing seems to have been updated since the Regan administration. Waiter was unfamiliar with the menu items, their preparation, and their pronunciation. Side dishes are miniscule. Once it got busy, the time gap in service stops increased disproportionately.

We went there for a Valentine's day dinner. Reservation was handled promptly, good table. Main course meat was slightly overcooked (both meals). Service was good, but seemed rushed, leading to an atmosphere where you felt rushed. It's a nice place and it seems quite popular, but there are better values elsewhere.

As usual this restaurant was a joy! It is always a pleasure to go there and it is our favorite restaurant in the desert.

This is a favorite restaurant for us ... always a good experience. We have a special table we like, and they always accommodate us.

Sides were cold and one serving of seafood was under-cooked. Husband's New York was really a cut of prime rib -- but it was delicious. Desserts were great.

Food and service was good however they wanted our table for the next serving. We hadn’t finished our dessert and they brought our bill and kept coming by to see if we had paid and time to go. After we eventually left our table when we were finished , service people were there to clean the table before we had gone 10 feet . They tend to jam tables together and not a very private/enjoyable experience.
