So good to get away from the Riverwalk. The food was even better than expected. Mussels in pesto garlic wine sauce, duck confit with polenta, creme brulee....all nearly perfect and amazingly tasty. Weekday evening, service was great as well. Just do it.

Outstanding nice little French bistro. Small place in King William area. The mussels are outstanding. I would suggest a reservation due to its size and popularity. The evening I went the restaurant was smokey due to poor ventilation, but the menu is varied. I had...More

Friends suggested this place with glowing reviews, but, sadly, it was one of the worst dining experiences we've ever had. We had reservations, but we were rudely dismissed to the bar for a 25 minute wait with no drink service of any kind, despite repeated...More

Pate prepared in house. Wonderful. Mussels & frites - very tasty. Generous portion. Char - very tasty. Well prepared mixed veggies & jasmine rice were perfect accompaniments. Small but nicely curated wine list covering all price points. Parking is a challenge.

I was nervous about trying out this little hole in the wall, but from the second we walked in, it was fabulous! Our party of 7 was seated immediately, thanks to reservations. This place was packed from the moment we arrived. Food was outstanding. We...More

I ordered a glass of wine with my appetizer and was poured what I would estimate to be less than three ounces. At that rate they should get not less than eight pours from a single bottle. At eleven dollars per 'glass' they're making a...More

found this by chance on our way to the Blue Star Art district, and so Glad we did. Great Food. We had the Steak & Frites- nice!, Pear salad- fresh, a flavorsome onion tart, soup and chocolate mousse. Everything was fantastic. Definite return visit.
