    We went to celebrate my birthday. The food was excellent as we expected it to be. The service was impeccable. Our server was a delight and laughed at all of my bad jokes. Due to the football games, the restaurant was only 1/3rd full which made for a very quiet evening compared to the other times we have eaten there. This has become our go-to place to eat and I recommend it to anyone and everyone.

    Service was fantastic! Food was good, but not worth the price. The place itself has cute decorations and eclectic art, a little tight/cramped space; I think the building was originally a house.

    Amazing FR cuisine right here in NOVA! Just back from Paris and we’re talking about this meal with the same regard. Service is always responsive without hovering, wine selection fantastic…. And the Duck was exquisite. We will continue to go for events or just when we have a craving for amazing food.

    The food and service were outstanding. The decor is, eclectic, and a bit cluttered. It was clear this is a restaurant that many people come to in order to celebrate as there must have been at least six people celebrating their birthdays the night we visited.

    Our first visit to this hidden gem and we will definitely be going back. Everything was wonderful. I read several reviews of this restaurant before booking and it lived up to the hype and more. You can tell the staff has cultivated relationships with recurring patrons and treats newcomers with the same level of high quality service from the moment we arrived. We can’t wait to go back.

    Our third time here and sad to say that service was rough - Kate took for ever to bring out our moscatos , said that the kitchen is busy so they probably can’t swap sweet potatoes for the mashed potatoes and one entree plate came out 5 min before the other 3 plates . For a restaurant of this caliber it was rather lackluster for the fact that we’ve had car better service here before . We wanted to keep the butter and bread at the table but it was taken away even after we asked for it to stay … yeah not a good look .
