The food and atmosphere here is fantastic. And a wonderful wine selection, of course. Their outdoor dining was compliant with current pandemic restrictions and we felt very comfortable dining there. Did I mention the food was fantastic?!

Very noisy. Service was fast paced and food came out too quickly or not together with the other entree we were seated at a table for what seemed like for 2 and we were a table of 4. They were out of all their special French staples like their Poulane bread and no French fries for steak or moules. The food was bland and did not warrant the prices. They were out of 2/3 beers on tap.
I have been to this location a few times before and other than the slow service which was appreciated, it was great. We were so embarrassed we invited another couple to dine with us that night. Not going back to this location. Think we will stick to their other location in Newport. Au Revoir

Steak was a little overcooked, came out before burrata. Coursing was stacked and overwhelming. Style of ratatouille was not my favorite. Olives were ok. Red wine glass came from the refrigerator as it was cold. Nice experience overall, I enjoyed the staff and the food, just wish good could've been a little better.

Our waitress was all over the place -- took 10 min to bring us our wine and water and then we never saw her again, a bus boy took our order and we had to ask the hostess to send the waitress with our check when we were ready to leave -- then the ipad they hand you is auto selected at 18% tip so you awkwardly change it in the settings, right in front of them, or just sign it and hate yourself.

Seated 20 minutes after reservation time. Inattentive host. Moved to a second table when we weren’t finished. Doesn’t seem like they’re equipped to be a restaurant, maybe just stick to cafe.

To have a pretentious front of house vibe without a pandemic is annoying but to try and maintain that vibe during a pandemic is simply exhausting.

The food was fine but not good enough to make up for the horrible service and seating. The high top was very uncomfortable- consider buying new chairs. Our server with the man bun didn’t bother giving us water, checking on us, or just doing the bare minimum. I had to get up 3 times to ask for water twice and a check. Not worth the $. :(

The DJ was invited to play music that night. It is a great idea in general. It happens twice a month there. The DJ was not aware or he didn’t want to be aware of how loud he was playing the music. After asking 3 people : the DJ, the hostess and the manager to lower the sound he temporarily did it and then turned it back on loud. It was not supposed to be a dance party but the music he played was really not a dinner type music. The management seemed to approve it??
Normally, the outdoor atmosphere is very nice and when it gets to be windy or cold the waiters are accommodative with moving the heaters.
The bathroom is a different story. The sinks need to have some adjustments. Although very trendy, the faucet is too close to the wash basin and you have to be creative to avoid touching the dirty water while washing your hands. The hot / cold water regulator has to be adjusted as well.

Food & ambience were great during these covid times, but the really standout was the service. Friendly & lovely staff who genuinely wanted to make sure we were having the best time and that all of our needs were met. Our table of 3 loved our evening there!

Food & vibes were fantastic. Unfortunately our experience was soured by the worst server we've ever had, GianCarlo. He stopped by our table 2x throughout the night: once to take our order and once to give the bill. We had to flag down other servers and bussers all night to get simple things like plates or a second round of drinks. We must've been sat by a regular or famous person because GianCarlo was at this table all night providing top notch service. After all of this, we had to tip on an ipad in front of him with only options to give 18%+. Wish we could've allocated a generous tip to the staff that actually waited on us .

Lastly - not a deal breaker at all but just take note that there is no liquor on the menu. Wine/beer only.

Food was quite good. I question their Covid cleaning. Our server kept touching his mask all night as it kept slipping. The busboy sprayed some tables but not others. No consistency with new Covid practices. Besides that, everything else was good.

I do enjoy the spot. But on the weekend, the poor staff and servers are completely overwhelmed with the sheer number of customers. Management needs to hire more servers if they are going to expand and add more tables to the parking lot. Our company had to wait more than 30 minutes to get a menu. The servers were trying to be courteous but they are obviously frustrated and exhausted.
