Ambiance was awesome, but expensive but food and service was good. Hamburger and hanger steak was incredible. Onion soup was average.

Recently ate there with family - party of 7. They took a reservation, food good, but service very, very slow. Portions large, probably oversized. Lovely French bistro atmosphere, long bar, private room available as well as outdoor seating.

A local favorite and "survivor" with the turnover of local eateries, this is an excellent choice for lunch,dinner, brunch or coffee. Very French atmosphere. A true bistro. Excellent menu and service. Only drawback: it is noisy when crowded.

We had a party in the back room for our grandsons graduation from University of Richmond. We made reservation a couple months in advance and it was excellent for a large group. They can easily accommodate that number.
