Decor is pleasant, with nice jazz music that's possibly a little too loud. Tables spaced reasonably so you don't feel too close to neighbors. A slightly European vibe. Would be good for a date, or a small group getting together.

Short Rib, Duck, risotto, onion soup, bisque, and asparagus soup all excellent. Baked fish was a little overcooked, but very tasty.

Drinks made very well, good wine list.

Great service. Will be returning ASAP.

Food was fantastic as always. Great service. Only complaint was we were sat up front near the door. Every time it opened, we got blasted with some cold air. One of, if not the best restaurants on the eastside.

Thanksgiving has become so much better now that we make reservations. Neither of us loves Turkey. The food was absolutely amazing. Every bite was delicious. Escargot & Foie Gras to start. Followed by tender Braised Lamb Shank & Crab stuffed Salmon with shrimp bathed in beure blance. We could not ask for anything more.

Our service was excellent. This is our second visit and on both occasions our wait staff was outstanding. They suggest terrific wines, and are knowledgeable about the menu. Love it. The food did not disappoint either, very unique meals and they are done really well. Cooked just as requested. A great experience overall.

We tried so many things and they were all wonderful. We ordered the bone marrow and the chef passed along the message that he was dissatisfied with how it turned out so they didn’t send it. That is a perfect example of excellent service. Don’t serve something you can’t stand behind.
We throughly enjoyed all the food. The bouillabaisse was LOADED with seafood. Our party was beyond satisfied with food, service, and wine. We will be back.

Really enjoyed this hidden jewel in the community. The food and service was excellent. I liked the knowledge of our waitress in explaining items on the menu and specials. I like the hint of the middle eastern atmosphere and items on the menu. I would recommend this place to my friends.

I attended this restaurant on sweetest day. My partner and I sat for 20 minutes without anyone coming to check on us or even offer a glass of water. The table next to use was attended to twice in this 20 minute period. We left and dined at another restaurant.
