Went here with friends to celebrate a birthday. Great updates on French Bistro Classics like Moules, Salad Nicoise, French Onion Soup, Frites, etc. Recommended for experienced European travelers who are a bit bored with tired French bistro food.

I took my college age daughter, her friend, my 13 year old son for dinner. Made reservations on open table a couple of days in advance. Seated within 10 minutes. It was cold out so no outdoor seating. Our waiter was very prompt and attentive...More
