The Dover Sole Meunière was wonderful, as was the Foie Gras, as was our waiter Julien C. We had a horrible experience the night before at Jeune et Folie and needed to get the bad taste out of our mouths. I think this will be a regular thurs event for us.

We had on the sidewalk, so like a real French experience in downtown LaJolla. We enjoyed cocktails, appetizers, the main course and cappuccino with desert. Everything was great!
The highlight was the shrimp and spaghetti dinner.

They really knocked it out of the park with an exceptional meal. The service perfect and unrushed. That's elastically important when you're taking your 86 year old mom out. Thanks for the great evening!

Love this place. I have been coming here for 15 years, but hadn't been back since Covid. Have been twice in the last couple of weeks, and it's even better than before. Food is so delicious and consistent. Staff is so polite and welcoming. The mushroom ravioli never disappoints. Everything else is fantastic too. A few of highlights: Nicoise salad, Moules Frites, Duck Confit ... yum. In the sea of mediocre La Jolla restaurants, I'm so grateful for this place. Hope they never change :).

You can't beat the food, the service, or the variety of wines, but the noise level prevents any meaningful conversation, unless you are sitting right next to someone and raise your voice, which of course exacerbates the noise level. My girlfriend won't go there because of the noise. Maybe lunch would be less noisy. When it was Tapenade over on Fay I usually only went for lunch, which of course was much more easy on the ears. Maybe the loudmouths at the bar are the cause of most of the racket, I'm not sure. I have heard members of the wait staff complain about about how loud it is in there. It's a problem.

You can always count on a beautiful presentation, gracious waiters, delicious bread and fresh butter and fantastic food. The salmon was the best I have ever had, we sampled the mushroom ravioli as an appetizer and had the superb lemon tart for dessert A perfect meal.
