We walked 6 miles in Coronado and had reserved a table for lunch the night before. We wanted to try the Michelin rated restaurant and we loved it. Mussels and truffle fries and Salad Nisoise. Baguette on the side. Really delicious.

Very overpriced. Fish has a rub on it that ruins the taste. Wine is a short pour and big price. Disappointed. Probably won’t revisit.

Ordered a few appetizers and asked for them not to come at the same time, of course two of the three arrived together. Poutine didn't have a great taste to it, Escargot and French Onion Soup was great.
Food was very slow to come out, I wanted to give a higher rating but considering the price of the food I expected a little better for my money.

Birthday brunch was fantastic! Four of us enjoyed every bit of it, coffee, pastry to die for, mimosas, tasty food and a very good waiter. It’s a cute place! We are indoors and tables were spaced apart, doors and windows open front to back. There were nice tables outside on the sidewalk that look perfect too, umbrellas and plenty of space for pedestrians. I want to go back to try more of their entrees! The menu looks good, French but all very recognizable to American palates.

Our waitress and chef went out of their way to accommodate my dairy intolerance. Our waitress was outstanding. She was cheerful, professional, very familiar with menu items. She truly made our experience so much more fun and memorable. The food was excellent. Overall a great experience.

Wonderful spot in Coronado with nice outdoor seating to celebrate a friend's birthday. Our server, Robinson, was absolutely fantastic - he made our day. The ambience and service was wonderful! All the food tasted very good, but the presentation was lacking and amount of food on certain plates was overwhelming. My mother ordered the short rib "appetizer" and the plate arrived absolutely piled with french fries surrounding the short ribs - she could barely find the short ribs. It was smothered in gravy with egg on top. It looked so unappealing. She searched for the short ribs and ate that, but couldn't eat the fries because they were all soggy from the gravy. It wasn't elegant or eye appealing. Would be much better if the fries were placed in a separate small container on the side. On the opposite spectrum - my friend ordered the sole entrée and it arrived with just 2 simple pieces of sole on the plate and no other garnish - the plate looked as if it was accidently taken away from the chef unfinished. I had the hamburger and that was delicious, juicy and the cheese! I recommend. Though, I would have preferred a stronger cheese or blue cheese ;-)) For dessert - Robinson brought a Crème brûlée with a candle to celebrate my friend's birthday :-)) It was delicious with yummy berries!

The dinner was fabulous. The meal was perfectly prepared and the flavors were great. We loved sitting outside. The restaurant had a railing along the sidewalk with flower planters that gave the seating a very European feel. Best of all, our server, Robinson, was amazing. He was friendly, attentive and helpful. He had many tables he was managing, but he always made us feel as if we were his only customer. We will return!

Service was excellent. Food was a little lacking in flavor (onion soup was very watery and quiche a little plain), but overall OK. Unfortunately, we were seated at an impromptu table placed outside a neighboring bank which did not allow us to enjoy the ambiance. There was also no lighting, but our waiter (who was great) kindly provided a lantern when asked.

The french fries were wonderful...flavorfull and crispy.
My quiche was so burnt on the top it had no flavor and yet the majority of it was only warm. The steak was okay. I was so looking forward to the quiche after seeing it on plates as I walked by, and I walked away disappointed.
