Very original plates. Very tastefull and delicious. The first part of the restaurant is quite noisy but they have a small room behind the bar that is more quiet. Whatever you chose is fresh and cooked with a high sense of excellence.

I made a reservation at this restaurant for a team dinner for a group of 9. Upon arrival, we were seated promptly and the staff provided complimentary coat check service. The service was good... a bit slow but understandable for such a large group. However, the problem came when we received our entrees. One of my colleagues had ordered the fish special of the day, which was supposed to be whitefish from Lake Superior. Instead a runner brought her a plate of tuna. Apparently, they had run out of whitefish in the kitchen and just decided that tuna would be a good substitution without even consulting with her. At this point, the rest of the table had received their plates so she settled for the dish. We were told there was a miscommunication between the kitchen and our server. She received many explanations but not one apology. At the end she was charged the full price for a dish she didn't order. No one offered to comp a dessert or even a glass of wine to make up for the mixup. For the most part the food was delicious and everyone seemed to enjoy their dishes but with so many great food options int he Chicago area, it is details like this that make the difference. I don't believe that any of the 9 of us will be returning to this restaurant.

Service was not up to its usual standard. The food (crepes) were cool when they arrived and it was difficult to get the attention of our server to let him know. I ate them anyway because we were pressed for time. One of my favorite places but this meal disappointed.

We returned to another great place, and we parked on the street.

Roc started with very flavorful butternut squash soup, and I played follow the leader. I had the same soup.

Escargot was rich with butter, flavor was a little bit different than before.

The main courses for us were the salads., and my salad had some Ali tuna.

We spoke with Hillary through out the evening. She a just a great person with great heart, again we talked just before leaving.

Dessert : I had profiteroles with vanilla ice cream, chocolate running down sides was very limited. The toasted almonds on plate and a hint of Coco sprinkle over all. This time the bitter sweet chocolate was also on the plate. Clear mix up on the number from 4 to 2 profiteroles. One should check or know the quantity before making the commitment to us. I had planned to take to others home, well I learned!

Hillary was warm and friendly. The executive chef/owner (Martial Nuguier) , and Lulu greeted us warmly and we had great conversation about knowing the meal, and working the pepper mills.

We dined for 2 hours and 25 minutes.

We experienced another meal with 💎💎💎💎💎 and the wait service was shaved of by 2 💎💎
They did offer glasses champagne after talking about some of the experience with the waitstaff. The champagne was flowing for us but we don’t like champagne.

Lamb chops were a disappointment. No meat, a lot of bone . Over cooked .
Not much flavor
We saw big thick lamb chops at the next table. Ours did not look like that.

Food is excellent. We had the scallops with braised cabbage and carrot puree, as well as a steak au poivre. Both were delicious. My spouse remarked that he wished he knew how to cook a steak as well as that, and he has cooked many of them, on the grill and in the pan. We also ordered the pate de compagne, which comes with a salad spiced with fresh julienned ginger soaked in rice wine. Very tasty with a few walnuts.

The noise and ambience are conducive to lively conversation, unlike most restaurants these days. We could just barely detect soft music in the background, but we could hear each other across the table, despite a full house. So rare these days.

We went here for an anniversary. The food was good. Our waiter was very nice. Overall we liked it. However the hostess was a bit rude. She took our name and then had us stand to the side while she talked with customers she recognised. She sat three groups ahead of us. Offered to take all of their coats. After all of this she came back to us and asked for our name again. Then the person doing the seating said he'd take us and sat us. Like I said overall we liked the restaurant but the hostess was a letdown.

Very enjoyable meal here on a busy Friday night. The three-course prix fixe dinner was an excellent value given the quality of the food. We enjoyed everything from the bread to the desserts, with the beet salad and the two fish entrees (salmon and seared tuna) standouts. First time here after walking by it multiple times, but it won't be the last.

I’m everything was great. I do wish that when we told our server, we were splitting our dinner, he would have had the kitchen divide the dinner there, and it brought out to the table on two plates. We don’t mind paying a plating fee

Great date night restaurant. The weeknight specials are fantastic. Very quiet and cozy ambiance. We had the lobster fettuccine and the duck but the seasonal butternut squash soup was the highlight of the meal! I will be dreaming of the chocolate hazelnut bars we had for dessert until we go back again. Love this place

I have been to this restaurant three times before, this time was not good. The cocktails were not good, the mussels were average at best. The waiter came and said chef asked if we wanted fries. We said sure just one helping. Another waiter then came and said”you know they don’t come with mussels on main menu only fixed price, so we said never mind. Not good handling.
Price was fair and since we were two of only four people in restaurant, it was very quiet and service was ok.
Very disappointed as before it was outstanding!!

I organized a group of 15 for a dinner on a Monday evening. They gave us our own dining room, so the atmosphere was lovely. The food was amazing and the service attentive. It was altogether a great evening. The prix fixe special was a great deal, but it was much pricier for people who did not order the prix fixe.
