    Consistently delicious food and friendly service. The trout amandine is a particular favorite. I also recommend their seafood entree specials that are a creative mix of fish/seafood and accompanying vegetables.

    Celebrated Father's Day and a special birthday - great Parisian vibe on corner in Media. As experts in all things pertaining to mussels, we all agreed they were fabulous with great bread to dip in the amazing sauce. We had the scallops, trout anf filet maon dishes - all were wonderful.

    My only complaint is that My hubby and I ordered mushroom omelet with SWISS cheese rather than the goat cheese. We were specific and told by our server that they could do that. So the omelets both arrived with goat cheese, ugh. Couldn’t eat it.

    Sitting on the porch for Dining Under the Stars, we had our favorite entrees, the hanger steak in shallot sauce and the pan-seared trout in an almond-butter sauce. Delicious as always. I also recommend the angus burger with carmelized onions and swiss, the crepes - particularly La Mer and La Brie, and (when it’s available) the beef carpaccio appetizer.

    It was Dining Under the Stars (DUTS) night in Media, which is always a lively atmosphere. We ate outside on the tables set up in the street, so it's not as polished and quiet as the indoor experience of course. Food and cocktails were great as always!

    We had 3 people seated outside on the small deck and everything was delightful. We were outside but shaded from the sun and noise of the street. The food was wonderful and service very good. Of course delightful weather helped - but generally very positive experience

    I LOVE this restaurant. It is my go to restaurant whenever I want to go out and don’t feel like experimenting with a new restaurant. I stumbled upon this restaurant during the pandemic and have gone numerous times. It is SO GOOD and never disappoints. You can confidently order anything off the menu and know it will be great. We took our kids here for Mother’s Day. They are kind of picky eaters so not all restaurant visits go over well, but they loved everything they ordered. No one left anything on their plates. It’s nice to have a place to go and know everyone will eat their food and enjoy it. And a bonus, the cocktails and wine are also very good. I’ll be back many more times.
