Had Duck Confit for dinner and got terribly sick. Management said "they would check" the next day, but didn't even ask for my name or seem concerned.

We've been here several times and had a nice time. Overpriced but good food. Tonight however was a disappointment. Our server was disinterested and not helpful. Kitchen was not flexible about simply topping a salad with a piece of grilled salmon, really? Must order the...More

Casual dining at its best. Creative menu with a French touch. Great appetizers, large drinks. Friendly, efficient service. Only 2 small issues -- limited parking and noisy when busy.

I’ve met friends here during the week, the food is delicious, service good. The bar is full of a loyal close knit crowd and I’m sure the weekends are very crowded in this little restaurant. Visit on a weeknight, you’ll be glad you did!

I don't believe so - they use predominantly ciabatta bread and brioche buns for their burgers and sandwiches. However, you could probably make a special request to the owner of the restaurant, Marty Levine - they may be... More
