First time there and enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was excellent. My only complaint was the fries were covered in garlic and that is not my favorite. Sort of overwhelmed the rest of the meal. Perhaps a little bit of warning for the first timer. Otherwise excellent menu with lots of variety and currently Octoberfest specials.

We went to dinner with my sister and her husband and we all ordered something different on the menus. It was quite pleasant outdoors on the patio and we'd recommend that for sure. I had the Pork chop and it was perfectly cooked with veggies. My wife had the Trout stuffed with Proscuitto and she enjoyed that as well.
Also notable was the liver dinner my sister ordered. She said it was very tasty and tender. They had Octoberfest type beers and I tried one of those too. The house Pinot Noir rounded out the meal. Very nice.

I liked this restaurant that's why we invited our friends to come with us for the lust day in USA. I was expecting to have good food, great service and nice experience, but this evening it was bad. Service was slow, it took 20 minutes to bring our drinks and they forgot to bring the bread. forgot to bring more drinks for our friends, and had to be reminded. Then it took 20 min for our appetizers and 25 min for main course. Food was so-so. My onion soup was ok, but my husbands octopuses was very salty. Our friends appetizers were ok but not great, so they left 1/2 of them on the plate. My lame chops was overcooked and cut to thin, my husbands liver was also overcooked. Our friends pork chop was ok, but they forgot to bring him green beans and his wife had chicken witch was ok. It was Wednesday and they didn't have a fool house to be so late and forgetful.

You will find that this restaurant is an authentic place to obtain some wonderful French cuisine that will tantalize the pallet and leave you wondering why I have not come here sooner
The duck was awesome and I cannot describe to you what that means except you have to try it for yourself and know that your taste buds will jump out of your body for an out of body type of experience.
The desserts and the coffee and the service is wonderful… I would go here on any and every special occasion. For those who enjoy French food this is the place to be .

We have been here many times, but never with 2 small children! We are mindful of other diners and made a 4:45 pm reservation along with ensuring both children had good naps! The hostess thoughtfully gave us a booth removed from the traffic flow and we had a most attentive server, William, who was assisted by another employee who saw to the children’s needs. We still had a chance to enjoy our wine and yummy entrees while the children feasted on pasta and chicken tenders! Everyone enjoyed their meals and it seemed that the wait staff also enjoyed having us! We will be back...soon!

Had a great meal - my first visit, however my friend, which we were celebrating her birthday was never acknowledged, even though I put it on the reservation request & mentioned it as we walked in, & mentioned it again as our server opened our wine.
But the food was delicious & we sat outside by the fountain with the misters & were we very comfortable. I will go back. Just done expect acknowledgement of a special occasion.

Had a fabulous salad for my entree that was roasted chicken with Chinese noodles served in a cabbage bird’s nest.
Lamb chops and mahi-mahi also we’re ordered by our table and everyone was happy with their selections.
The presentation was appropriate to the dish without being overdone.

So glad that they are open! Sunday thru September, all wine bottles 1/2 price, plus bar menu all night. The truffle fries are to die for! Seafood fresh, and menu eclectic. So miss them not being open for lunch! Super good Blood Orange Martinis!

As others have pointed out, meat may or may not be cooked the way you like it. Steak for one person in our party was a tad over cooked. Ordered medium and most of the slices were medium-well. Best to order medium rare and then you can send it back for a little more cooking if needed. The medium rare order was perfect.

Portions were substantial. Our waiter, Joe, was excellent - AND had a sense of humor. We enjoyed dinner, wine, cocktails and dessert. Prices were okay for the service and food quality/quantity. Will look forward to returning.

Lovely and quiet - but it was a weeknight off-season. I can imagine it’s a different scene in season!
