Nice comfortable French bistro. My husband and I dined here and we were so pleased that we came back with the whole family. Good food, reasonable prices and decent portions. We tried their seafood festival menu and their regular menu as well.

Have been here several times. They took a reservation for 4 that day. Had a choice of tables. Food was good, especially the French Onion Soup and the Escargot. Dip the delicious bread into the escargot (very garlicky). One of us had the hamburger, another...More
