Le Sacre Coeur
I will say first that the staff is very friendly and the facility is perfectly adeque.
The menu contains every bistro favorite from France, but just doesn’t seem to do them well. The escargot with “butter” and garlic were clearly of the canned or frozen variety then shoved into decorative shells. The butter and garlic mentioned tasted more like cheap oil with pre-minced garlic and the escargot themselves were flavorless. The fried Camembert was acceptable, but had way too much sweet red sauce ladled overtop. If you order this as an appetizer, ask for the sauce on the side to keep it from tasting more like dessert. For dinner, the salmon filet was, in fact, a salmon steak, and rather a bony one. The burre blanc sauce was decent but didn’t adequately cover the rather unpleasant taste of the fish. The lamb steak was tasteless and served with a brown sauce that was clearly straight out of a bottle. My glass of white wine was not pleasant to drink either. I left most of it in the glass. On the upside, the potatoes with both main dishes were edible. We skipped dessert, waiving the white flag of surrender, we could bear no more.
A gorgeous little independent restaurant, with delicious food, an amazing atmosphere and fantastic service. Highly recommended!
Great meal in a lively restaurant
Great service and pre-theatre dinner! The ambience is charming and the food is good.
I love this restaurant so much, maybe my favorite in Angel. This time the wait staff seemed to be really difficult to wave down. Will definitely come back tho!!
