Small, quaint BYOB that sits right on Rt. 30. French farmhouse decor with a wonderful menu. We were there on a Friday night and there was a lovely couple performing french music. The food did not disappoint. Highlights: charcuterie board and trout! The board presented...More

A surprise local cuisine. A taste of Paris in our back yard. Fine French food served in a quaint atmosphere at reasonable prices. You can't go wrong with their onion soup and their Escargot. Save plenty of bread for dipping.

My recent visit was a true letdown. I ordered the special for the night, which was $38. The portion was unusually small. I have to say that the wait staff was great. However, this does not compensate for receiving an appetizer size dinner entree. I...More

The restaurant is in a odd place and you might not think it looks like much but the food is great. It is also a BYOB. I think this restaurant is also great for lunch.

I've eaten many meals at this venue, never a bad or poorly prepared entree. Their paella is one of my favorites, other dishes very good. When not busy the service is excellent and the quietness perfect for a business type meeting or discussion. I've tasted...More

So sorry for the delay. I hope you had the chance to go and enjoyed your meal. I find on average that I spend about 25 per person for lunch and around 35 at dinner.
