    My friends and I had an amazing time! I was there to celebrate my birthday, and it was absolutely wonderful. The food and tea were delicious, the service was great, and the ambiance is so cute and pretty. My friends were so happy I chose this place. I had never even been there before. I found them on Open table, so I was hoping that everything would turn out right as all I had to go on was pictures and reviews. They exceeded my expectations! I will definitely be back. Highly recommend the lovely Afternoon tea experience!

    Unfortunately, the Easter brunch was a bit of a let down. At the price point - I would expect more variety and quality. At a lower price the buffet may have been better received.

    Prix exagéré, services déficitaire, manque de courtoisie. Un facture de plus de 400 USD pour une famille de 3 personnes pour un Brunch buffet improvisé est royalement exagéré.

    Simple, no service provided. We ordered starter fries and waited for 30 min … never received the fries and no one at the restaurant didn’t seem to care, so asked for the check and reserved dinner elsewhere, where the staff was attentive and we ate! The simple things you expect at a restaurant establishment.

    Cheery small bistro with tasty Happy Hour food options. We were there at a less crowded time; might be noisy when full.
