Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Slow Food movement member and theater-district bistro serves mid-priced French fare and fine wines, with glass-enclosed garden dining available.
Fun, Romantic, Reasonably priced – My favorite salmon in town... but I've recently sampled the steak and duck, fantastic.
Try for the garden room if possible, its very cozy.
great little place – Great ambiance... try to get seated in the "garden" Food was very good. Service was good. Make a Reservation!!! It gets crowded during dinner/theatre times.
The Perfect Date – I choose this place for my last date based largly on the reviews on this site and I must say it ivd up to it's billing. The food was great (although the arugala in the arugala salad needs to be chopped) the service was not fantastic but pretty good (inubtrusive, great on a date) and the ambience was perfect.
EXCELLENT! – Try the salmon - I was a bit concerned about the fennel - but this dish's combination of textures and flavors left me wanting more. I will definetly go back for another visit.
Not bad, but... – Came here for brunch a while ago. I liked the space, though it pushed on the "faux" French a little too hard. The food was, well, fine, but nothing to write home about. Maybe it's different in the evening, but I'd give this a 7/10 rather than the (approx) 9/10 it gets on average
A Real Find – This wonderful little bistro in the theatre district was recommended by my parents. They weren't wrong. We sat in the charming garden room-- completely full and a bit loud but not overwhelming. Service was excellent. Both of us had the duck, which was delicious, perfectly cooked and accompanied by a wonderful polenta and a sort of sour cabbage. This was an excellent value and a wonderful dinner experience. In fact, we've already made a reservation to go back!
Great private room – We sat in the garden room. I had a appetizing mixed green salad, chicken w/ great mashed potatoes and a pretty good creme brulee. Waitress was nice but didnt know some specials and was alittle off, think she was new. Overall a plkeasant experience.
Very Good!! – We had a great time when we took my friend out for lunch for her birthday! We sat in the garden room, which is open year round & very nice! The little fountain in the back, and even though it the place was full it wasn't loud or stuffy. The gazpacho was GREAT!! Never been a big fan but would come back again just for that. The food was very good & the service was very friendly!!
A ten and a gem – It was recommended by a friend and boy was she right on! The ambience is sweet, the garden room is beautiful, but you are there for the wonderful food. The Crisp Spicy Duck was sublime, but leave room for dessert. Have the Valhrona Chocolate and Carmel Mousse or the Lemon Custard. They will use up all your points for the week but it is worth it. You can also find a very nice wine for a reasonable price. Go there and tell all your friends!
