Lots of good plates on offer here. I really enjoyed the Mussels Frites and the Escargots. We also snacked on fresh Oysters and enjoyed some delicious cocktails. We got really good service.

Great food and ambience in this little house turned restaurant. Menu definitely had some creativity that I couldn't quite nail down as to its origins - French/Russian was the best I could describe. The wagyu beef was tremendous. Pricey drinks, though the rest of the...More
