Description: This French & American bistro features contemporary renderings of classic bistro dishes such as escargot cassolette, shrimp Provençal and an off the grill selection for the classic American palate. The décor inside this 70-year old cottage that houses the bistro is rich and romantic, with intimate ambience. The charming bar offers an extensive selection of champagne cocktails and house made martinis; a mural on its ceiling depicts a “champagne war” between cherubs and monkeys holding bottles of champagne. Patio dining is also available in the Garden which sits directly on Pacific Coast Highway. They have Happy Hour from 4:30 to 6:30 PM nightly along with live entertainment starting at 7:00 PM. This is the perfect spot to spend on a date, for company dinners, or just a relaxing night away from your everyday life.

Perfectly prepared filet! The restaurant is a bit old school but if that's what you're looking for, it's a hit. Nicely prepared food with a warm and comfortable space. Nothing too amazing but pretty good all around.

Wonderful french cuisine and excellent champagne selection. Dishes tend to have cream-based sauces so ask for light use if you don't want the heaviness. Very romantic atmosphere. Parking is limited. Valet parking is recommended.

If you're looking for a nice evening this is a good place but it's pricey and a little over done in my opinion. Haven't been back again.

Loved the atmosphere, some tables a little close. Had live music -guy on piano and singing. He was really good. Food was pretty delicious. Except for the lobster bisque. We were told they are known for their champagne cocktails and they were right. They have several different flavors and they are delicious. Be advised this restaurant is pretty pricey.

The food here is absolutely delicious. Delicate sauces, tender meats and flavorful yet mild fish. It would be hard to find a single thing on the menu that you would be disappointed in. Make reservations well in advance - the restaurant is appropriately cozy and they get booked up quickly.
