Fined her last night. Had the Lobster Bisque which was wonderful! Great atmosphere, pleasant staff. A bit of a limited menu as I was hoping to find Cioppino but had great food anyway. Pricey. A nice visit. You will want to make a reservation.

We had different types of oysters and they were delicious and fresh! I didn’t really like escargot toasts as they were pretty plain.. although I like escargot in garlic sauce normally, but these ones were just not so much flavourful. I also had a lobster...More
