It's an old fashioned, some might say "dated" ambiance, food is good, service is pleasant, you get warm greetings, good for quiet lunch or dinner. Check out special events.

This is a very good spot for French inspired cuisine. The food is always very tasty and well presented without being too fancy or pretentious. I’d only the tired decor was updated this would earn five stars

I believe the fixed price menu is on weekdays and not on weekends. One nice feature is that while the restaurant has a liquor license, on Tuesdays, they invite patrons to BYOB without a corkage fee,
