Unabashedly French. But creative. The food is all delicious, and everything works. Wine is well chosen and well priced. Service is attentive but not intrusive. Decor is elegant and understated. We enjoyed this very much, and got a few ideas for our own kitchen. A...More

This is the kind of restaurant you feel a bit nervous on entering, worrying about what order to use the cutlery while doing a mental check on the balance of your credit card. We were looking for somewhere to take some elderly relatives (who were,...More

Yes, they were nice and the place is pleasant enough. But it's far from what the price tag would suggest! I don't give reviews like this for fun, I was genuinely shocked.
