We decided on this restaurant based on a recommendation from a close friend. We were saying goodbye for now to my niece who is leaving for a semester abroad and wanted to enjoy a special meal with her and her and younger brother.

Obviously we booked on OpenTable and I reviewed the full menu on the app as well. It appeared to be at a good price point along with a nice variety for the four of us to enjoy.

Upon seating and reviewing the menu I was a bit surprised to see a very limited menu for restaurant week with a very high price point. To be honest If it was just my wife and I give them the number of restaurants in the local area we both agreed we would’ve walked out. Most restaurants that I’m aware of during restaurant week serve their regular menu and then have a side menu specific to restaurant week. I found the options at this restaurant a complete upsell.

As far as the food I had the roasted chicken which was very good I will say. The other three choices at our table where the salmon and the rack of lamb. The kids didn’t complain about the salmon although the portion was extremely small with minimal garnishments. The rack of lamb was tasteless.

It would’ve been nice to enjoy their full menu and I believe the bar menu at the happy hour time frame which was not available at the regular dining tables may have made this experience better.

The service was fine with no problems they were attentive and polite. They don’t make the menu!

I would not recommend this restaurant.

We loved this place. It was as close as you can get to a Parisian brasserie. Food was very good and the service excellent.

The total experience was great, however the actual entrees could have been more flavorful. If you are looking for quiet, elegant, a great wine list and very decent food, its a winner.

Due to the holiday it was rather tight and our table was small and close to others but it was enjoyable. The best plate is the duck entree. Their in house Manhattan is tasty. If tote looking for a good meal... this is the place.

This is a good everyday lunch (or other meal) kind of place. All three of us ate everything on our plate- which says something!

French onion soup and rack of lamb are outstanding. Duck was not as tender as we hoped. Country French Tartiflette was a disappointment -- the cheese was overpowering. Bottles of wine are extremely expensive. It would be nice to have some wines that are priced at less than $45 per bottle. Tables are nicely spaced so you can have a conversation with your table mates. Service was perfectly timed. We never felt rushed. We had a very enjoyable evening.

Food is decent. Service is wonderful. Nice casual setting. Bourbon Manhattans are exemplary! Scallops are excellent. Lobster Risotto and French Union soup are underwhelming. NATS ARE AWFUL!

I love the happy hour here and that they do it on Saturday nights since I"m never able to make a weeknight happy hour. This is a great pre-theatre dining option. The happy hour menu is extensive enough that you can easily build a full dinner out of it. The food is very good and it's a great value. Service was a bit slow this time. My glass of wine was gone by the time I was halfway through my food. I would have loved to have ordered a second glass (even though happy hour was over by then) but couldn't find anyone to take the order for it until I'd finished my meal.

A big surprise- food excellent, you can hold a conversation, excellent service from Amber. My only gripe is that Open Table wrote me this morning that we were a “no show”. This is annoying especially since I warned the young man at the entrance to “indicate” to Open Table our check-in.

A favorite spot. Thanksgiving pre fix menu selections were perfect. And, best vodka gimlet in town.

Sam's management skills are apparent. And, thanks to all the crew for the hard work on the holiday.

I have been here once before and it was better the first time. It was Thanksgiving and they were busy but still attentive. Thanks Lincoln for taking care of us. The menu was very nice and included 3 courses. The only complaint I had was the Leg of Lamb was fairly tough. My fault for not saying anything but I didn't want to disrupt my other guests with a complaint. I will go again though.

The food was delicious and excellently prepared. Service was good but a bit slow, so had to skip dessert because our parking meter time was up and meter too far away to add time.

We were here for Sunday brunch. There were not too many parties at 1.15pm, so service was very fast and attentive. We had the Viennese pastries with fig jam for starters, followed by crab cake Benedict and a seafood Cobb salad. Some raspberry sorbet made a nice finish. A pleasant way to celebrate an anniversary. And a place we'll consider again on a future trip to San Diego.

Love the food and this place but the last 2 times we've been here, service seems to be lacking. Often times too much times lapses between checking in on us.
