What a great place. Once you're inside the restaurant, you get the charm of the atmosphere and the smell of beautifully cooked food right away. It's small, but doesn't feel crowded and is not loud. There were 5 of us so we tried many dishes--standouts were the tourte and the bouillabaisse. The decor and presentation were as well structured and thought out as the food. (Even the bathroom is cool.) And, for once, the desserts were as good as the food. The whole experience was just such a surprise and a treat and exactly as billed--French with an American twist.

I was warmly greeted upon entry and the entire staff could not have been nicer. The entire menu looked delicious. I finally settled on the bouillabaisse which was superb. I plan to dine here frequently.

The place never fails! Bringing newcomers to show this restaurant is always a joy - they are stunned from the first bite and keep on thanking me for reviling “the secret jem”.
The chef is always on point but his hospitality exceeds all expectations. Have been here multiple times and have always been quite pleased with the whole experience!

Absolute wonderful dining experience. We ordered the flash fried whole snapper and the bouillabaisse. Both were very flavorful but turned delicious when you dipped the snapper in the herb infused vinaigrette and when you bit into the dipped in bouillabaisse saffron aioli crostini.
What topped our night was the service we received. We normally don’t dine out with our newborn, but since the restaurant is on our way back from the pediatrician, we had to stop. Very pleased we did as the owners were very patient and accommodating to our newborn and were very attentive to our every need.
Recommended if in the area.

Delicious food, homey atmosphere. The waitstaff was attentive and polite. We were even greeted by the chef to see if our food was prepared well. I loved the Ribeye steak with the cognac sauce. My wife got the special which was lamb prepared in a clay pot, Moroccan style. This dish could have been spicier, as we both love spicy food. Great place for a special occasion.

Super cute! We sat in the patio, where we sat & chatted w/the heater on. Got served by a very nicely lady who seemed to be the owner. The food itself was fantastic esp the truffle oil fries.
Later the chef/owner came out to introduce himself, super friendly just to say hello & thank you for coming out to his establishment. Would def go back. Great from, great srvc!

Cozy cute restaurant and good food . Ordered Red snapper and Ribeye steak as a main dishes. The red snapper was very good especially the sauce came with fish was really good and it double the taste better. Also other starter was pretty good. Only thing bothered us was noisy at patio. The patio door slamming sound was really loud every time peoples are in and out. But good food and good service made up this little issue.
I will come back to try different food.

Wonderful French cuisine, beautifully presented and delicious. The portion sizes are ample, but not so large that you will be too full for dessert. That is a good thing, because the apple tart is amazing!

The prices are on the higher side, but for a special occasion, this restaurant is worth the price.
