Thierry and Patricia Moity were previous owners of Patou Bistro in Charlotte, NC and Cafe de Bruxelles in New York City.

Delight in Chef Thierry Moity's traditional French cuisine. Chef Moity, who has been cooking since age 13 in some of the finest French restaurants in Europe and New York City. The French cuisine is influenced by a combination of traditions-Patricia comes from the northern part of France near the Belgium border, while Thierry's origins are deeply rooted in the central provinces of the country.

According to Chef Moity, the food is served fast paced and in generous portions." I want everyone to feel welcome in my restaurant". We are working against the stereotype that French food must be intimidating and expensive.

    Such a lovely restaurant. We had the trigger fish special with shrimp sauce! It was delightful to say the least. Our waiter was so helpful and kind. Don’t miss going here and get the Marie Antoinette’s Left cocktail 😊

    Cold duck confit, overdone flounder, wine crystals from bottom of bottle in my husband’s glass and they charged him for it. Our friend’s mussels were good…. Will not be returning.

    My father in law, who has traveled extensively in France, and recently returned from a multi week trip through Provence, absolutely loves this restaurant. He asks that we make a reservation every time he visits us in Wilmington. The lamb chop special was the best any of us had ever eaten. Simply prepared and perfect. The mussels are a perennial favorite. Don’t skip the desserts. Cheers!!

    Warmly greeted, quickly seated at our requested table. New cocktail menu was a hit (4 out of 4 thumbs up). Broad, mostly French wine menu though some confusion by the staff. Wine selection sorted out and we had aces from apps to dessert. Again, 4 out of 4 meals got high marks for taste, temp, originality and exceeding expectations. What a great evening.

    We ordered a merlot that was in the menu, and it was not available. Not sure if this was a supply chain issue or inventory planning. Our server was polite and attentive. Great job.

    Th atmosphere was great for our anniversary celebration. Second floor was quite comfortable and charming. Food was excellent as were the wines. Our server - Drew - was really exceptional in terms of knowledge of the menu items, courtesy and engaging in conversation and overall attentiveness without "hovering". Just a great experience for our first visit. It will not be our last.

    We waited a very long time for our meal. It was clear the kitchen was closing. We were the last shift. I ordered a steak medium well and it came out rare. Basically the offer was to take my meal off the check and have a nice evening. I walked away without having a meal after an hour and a half. It was our anniversary - we come here all the time, usually have an excellent experience - very disappointed this visit.

    We had a wonderful meal on Sunday celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. We requested a room upstairs as we heard it was a little quieter up there. That proved to be true. Our waiter, Drew, was personable and helpful. He was waiting quite a few tables, an dit did not impact our service. We will definitely be returning as there are many other entrees on the menu I would like to try.
