The appetizers were tasty but they came a bit late. The worst thing was the main course. So we sat down at 8 pm and our main course came by at 9:15 pm. Meanwhile the waitress never informed us about the situation in the kitchen until I asked her. And she had an attitude. I don’t know maybe she got stressed because of the kitchen being late. But obviously not my fault as a customer.

My lamb dish’s wine reduction was awful because I have this weird bitter taste from every bite. Eventhough I asked for medium well the lamb was so medium.
And the worst part was that’s our anniversary dinner. When I did my reservation I put that note. This is what I get for our anniversary dinner.
Thank you for not being helpful and this unfortunately worst anniversary dinner experience.
It was such a n awful experience.

Food has gotten quite better and the service as well. Took 3 tries but I'm confident they will be consistent now. It took a year for them to work out the kinks.

Weird vibe but nice folks and good food. Word to the wise, the cheese bread appetizer (can't remember the name) is an ENTIRE loaf of bread. It's heavy too. Could feed a small army.

Very good food with not so many French choice on the menu but all and all very good with reasonable prices. I had the salmon and my husband had the fish stew. We enjoyed them both.

Very odd place. We were there from 8pm-10pm on a Saturday night and not one other patron was in the restaurant when we arrived and not one patron came in throughout our dining experience. Waitress couldn't open a bottle of wine - she broke the cork in the bottle. Wouldn't consider it French. Part of the dinner was cold. Very mediocre and didn't match the price range. The only positive was that it was obviously quiet and clean.

unfortunately this place does not seem to have it figured out. seeing as we were the only table in the place, it should've been easy to get our order right-- however there were errors w the appetizer course AND the main course. kind of like an empty subway car, if a dining room is empty, there's almost always a good reason!

Great food and decor. The restaurant is probably new, so the staff is not very good at service, but they will...

Surprisingly great! Had low expectations maybe? But filet mignon with eggs were *so good*. Even though steak ordered med rare came out very rare, it was so delicious I ate it up anyway! This may sound weird, but even the eggs were cooked with a lot of skill, you could tell! Value was unreal. Like, I told them they should be charging more. They won't make it serving $12 steak and eggs with $5 mimosas! Enjoy while you can!

Ambiance and food presentation are excellent. I had the shrimp and scallops entree. The scallops were seasoned perfectly but the shrimp barely. The appetizers of crab beignets, fish sticks & anchovie toast were ok. My friend had The whole sea bass grilled which she enjoyed but could have been deboned. The complimentary chocolate lava cake was lovely as was the delicious whipped cream. Service was good.

The food was great. Very slow service with only a couple tables of people. It took over 30 minutes to get our apps and neither our apps or entrees were served to everyone at the same time. It seemed like they were in the weeds the whole evening and there were maybe a dozen people eating.

Tasty, healthy, fresh, food and nice, authentic atmosphere makes this restaurant an interesting option to consider in Greenpoint. I've dined here on number of occasions and always loved it.
Great place for weekend brunch with friends as well as date night dinner. Kids are welcome!
Will be back!

Beautiful restaurant ! Came here for girls out diner.
The food was amazing (appetizers, diner, dessert! ) drinks were crative and delicious ! The staff was super attentive, and the volume was perfect with a little background music that still allowed for conservation.
Highly recommended for family, friends or events !
