We would recommend to friends. It's a bit pricey for the quality of the food, the presentation was great. Taste a little bland. Atmosphere was really nice. Overall we enjoyed the experience. Probably a restaurant that we're glad we came, but won't probably return for a 2nd visit.

Waitress wasn’t all that helpful. Very loud, couldn’t even hear across the table. Not a great place for an Anniversary. Steak was tasteless, tasted boiled. Corvina was over cooked.

Always a good time. The service is great. The food is even better. Everything was done proper and the way we ordered it. The foie gras was perfect. A little loud but well worth it.

If you’re looking for something different.. this is the place. Just walk in with an open mind and an empty stomach. They’ll handle the rest. Chilean Seabass is amazing.

Enjoy the charm of a French bistro right here in KC, without the air travel. The staff is great, low key and casual but they take the dining experience seriously. Great parking too!

The food and service were GREAT!!! However, it was very noisy and we could not hear each other very well. Everyone was very nice and one of the waiters sang twice. It was very nice and I would go back anytime.

The food was delicious, but the portion was small for the large price. I had 3 scallops topped with a shred of shortrib, 3 baby carrots, and 2 green beans for almost $40. It tasted great, but not $40 great.

The resteraunt was as I expected, great food, great service and a loud and raucous atmosphere. It is a small place and so the noise ricochets off the walls, but it gives the place a lively feeling. The food was first rate and well presented. The service was also excellant as the waiter was able to answer all of our questions about the food and made sure that everything was exactly as we wanted. He was also personable and told us some fascinating stories of his time in France. Because it is expensive this is my once a year extravagaza, but it is worth the time and the cost.

Everything was absolutely amazing! We were supposed to have a date night on Friday but the snow kept us from leaving our home. Instead date night was moved to Sunday, and our daughter got to join us. The second we walked in we were welcomed by the hostess, she knew which reservation was ours and we had the perfect booth. The food was outstanding, service was wonderful! My one year old devoured her escargot! My husband had the duck and I had scallops and short ribs, it was all fantastic. While we ate another server (Susie) walked around the restaurant with our daughter, which was really heartwarming. The Princess Stephie was delicious as was the espresso martini! We can not wait to come back!
