This restaurant has great decor. The food was magnificent. I had the beef bourgenon, my wife had the Fait Maison pesto chicken. The leisurely fashion in which our meal was served reminded me of the times we have dined in Paris. A welcome surprise find...More

Delicious French homestyle food (not the fancy stuff). Prepared with care and attention to detail. Will definitely return if ever back in this area. Small number of tables, so be sure to make a reservation.

Food is pretty good, servings are kind of small, not cheap either; despite the previous two shortcomings I still like it. The Coq Au Vin was delightful, on another occasion I had garlic scalloped potatoes and was as pleased as punch. Their operating hours are...More

Had lunch for 4 on a very busy weekend. We expected service to be a little slow but our meals arrived surprisingly quick. The salad portions are large enough to share and prepared very well. Sandwiches equally as good. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

Truly the best restaurant in town for lunch or dinner! Make reservations since they are only open a few hours a day! The food, ambiance and people are the greatest!

I always have the filet mignon, rare. It's always excellent! It is topped with either the peppercorn sauce, or garlic butter. Both are great, but I usually have the peppercorn sauce. My side is always the layered tomato... More
