Excellent French food with a Genuine atmosphere of being in France. The waiters are wonderful ( and nicer than their French counterparts), the menu is French, the music & wine is French. Yes you feel like your 3000 miles east of Philly.

We did the tasting menu for $55 and it was well worth it. Every course was delicious and very well prepared. This is a gem of a restaurant especially if you enjoy French food.
