We were a big group of friends and the service was very quick! We all loved the food and the vibe of the place! They had live music during the dinner and the staff was very friendly!

Very cute bistro with adequate service and nice small menu of traditional French selections. We had very good dinners, and the portions were large enough that a main course was plenty of food, with a bottle of delicious French wine, of course. Lovely informal evening.

While being seated at dinner in the cluttered restaurant, I cut my finger badly when I accidentally knocked a glass over while being directed to squeeze past a too-close adjacent table. The staff showed no concern, never once asking if I was ok, and did...More
