This French girl can attest: this is the real deal! Steak tartare, foie gras, bœuf bourguignon, all excellent. The wine list, while not extensive, is solid and reasonably priced. Great ambiance!

Atmosphere is nice, service fabulous, thanks Paula. We had the regular escargot and the happy hour escargot with Brie. Frog legs were tasty. Two couples enjoyed the sliders and butter nut squash. Nice anchovies on the Caesar salad. Perfect portions for happy hour.
