    We had a lunch there pre season so not crowded. I took my out of state daughter and her foster child there. The child was intimidated by the menu and the waiter was wonderful with her, answering all her questions kindly and patiently. The chef came out and explained how he prepared the crab cakes. The She Crab soup was the best I’ve had anywhere on the east coast or FL. The crab cake slider size 1/2 sandwiches were delicious. Such a great experience for all of us!

    Even though they were short staffed, the service was still very good, with just a few delays. As always, the food was amazing. An outstanding brunch!

    This was one of our most fabulous meals in Western NC!!!! What a wonderful surprise to have a world class French restaurant up here. The chef was warm, friendly and informative, the waiter was also but more importantly…..the food was outstanding…..an explosion of tastes with every dish. Looking forward to going back soon.

    My risotto came out cold and the flavor was bland. My date had the salmon which she really enjoyed. The prices were very high and the portions were small. The wine selection however was very good and fairly priced. The service was average. Staff consistently came over and asked how things were before you had a chance to taste. There was only one other diner in the restaurant so I don't understand why they didn't notice I hadn't tasted the food yet. Often there was no staff whatsoever in the dining room.

    We thank you for your feedback and are sorry to hear you didnt throughly enjoy your entree. We do wish you had expressed any issues to your server in one of the many times they were attentive to your table as we could have resolved these problems at the time of service. We take great care to provide an excellent dining experience and quality meal to all of our guests which is evident in the wealth of positive feedback from the majority of our guests however we are not perfect. We hope to have another chance to make your dining experience with us wonderful at 10% off. Our prices and portions are reflective of the quality of ingredients and our experience in our field and we enjoy that we provide a relaxed and intimate dining experience focusing on quality over quantity. Thank you again.

    Took my Mom for Sunday brunch and had a wonderful meal and experience. Delicious entrees and excellent service. We thoroughly enjoyed the attention to detail at every plating. The quality and flavors did not disappoint. Thank you for helping us make it a memorable experience for my mother.

    The food was absolutely amazing but it seems they need to have more people working. There was only three servers working the front and they were responsible for seating, getting orders, running food, and making drinks. Their stress was definitely causing some stress on the patrons

    Good: We ate a 4 course preset menu for a Thanksgiving dinner. The choices were great and the food was fabulous! The staff was kind and professional. Not so good: they staff was overwhelmed or they were short staffed, not sure which. The staff working were running hard and doing a good job but there were some delays in seating and eating. They had no bread service and could not find a bottle of the Champaign we wanted. They ran out of one of the dessert choices early in the evening. Bad: hearing the chef yelling in the kitchen. This is a great little restaurant and I would definitely return. I truly think the staff were underprepared for the busy evening. They could have definitely used some help.
