Beautiful atmosphere in an old train car with delectable lunch and dinner choices ! French Cuisine with many other selections like Tortiere, Poutine, Escargots, Filet Mignon, Crepes, French Onion Soup, Quiche and more.... Great choice for an intimate dinner or group party!! Excellent selection of desserts to top off the evening!!

I had the opportunity to have dinner with my two Grand Daughters last night, they thoroughly enjoyed it! The Calamari apparently is the best my oldest Grand Daughter has ever had and sends her complements to the Chef! The Scallops St.Jacques were excellent.

Made a reservation for 7 asking for chairs as two people had mobility issues. Got 3 chairs and four people squeezed into a banquette meant for 3. Took twenty minutes to get water and to take drink orders for four. Another while for menus to arrive. Food took upwards of 1 hour and twenty minutes to arrive. Yes it was... More

My wife and I came here for the first time for her birthday supper and found the food great! I have to admit that I was a bit concerned with ambiance, etc from the pictures, but from seeing the dining room and the train car I quickly discovered that my concerns were unfounded. My wife and I are fairly picky... More

Seafood platter is exceptional; good service with European atmosphere, without the snobbery. Consistently good.

One of our business colleagues brought us to this restaurant for dinner. I immediately wanted to sit in the train car. Our server Curtis was fantastic!!!! The food was good but not the best I've every had. I loved the atmosphere and the small history book that is brought to your table when you sit down. Had a nice time... More

I hadn't been for a few years. Was looking forward to dinner. I had what I picked out what I wanted before I got there. Onion soup and filet. The onion soup tasted ok but all the onions were like they were mashed liked baby food. The steak (filet) was ok but they used too much seasoning salt. The steak... More

A decent restaurant with some excellent food let down by staff trying on tomfoolery - decanting wine not requiring decanting in an attempt to impress. It did not. A starter of duck pate with Fig compote was delicious but accompanying pear & onion was nasty & unnecessary. Chateaubriand was beautifully cooked but hadn't been seasoned, at all. Ridiculous. Get your... More

We went for an anniversary celebration, had reservations and were seated promptly. Service was excellent until our server for some reason was pulled into the main dining area. The host brought out our meals that had been sitting under the warmer for a bit, but were still delicious. We did not see any server after that. after our meal we... More
