    As a gal who has spent a fair amount of time in France, it is wonderful to see that most of their servers can speak French! Decent and inexpensive bloody, cute outdoor seating, and cash only.

    Happy hour oysters! Love how they have an outdoor seating area. They also change their drink menus regularly and it's always good.

    I highly recommend this restaurant. It is not easy to find. It's on a growing area of bushwick. The food and service are great. I'll be coming again :-)

    Gorgeous back yard, delicious food and cocktails. The bread is truly phenomenal. Very much like someone dropped a duplicate of Maison Premiere in Bushwick.

    A bright spot for the area. I'm glad to see this place move in. Great French onion soup and hanger steak. Try one of their cocktails.

    Comfy. Quick bite to eat. The fried Pancake is delicious! The place is small but the food is great and the prices are affordable.

    Real nice place, coq au vin is my recommendation. Mominette burger is good, but IMO doesn't compete with the best.

    There's a oyster happy hour every evening and all day on Monday. Cash only, unfortunately.

    Just come here, the way to describe this place is all the inappropriate things you would say after the most mind blowing "session" ever.

    Charming french bistro with the trappings you'd expect, and a beautiful backyard.

    Happy hour oysters are usually pretty solid - can be a miss though

    Beware the brunch pancake. It takes an hour to make and easily feeds 3.

    Garden seating in the back is so cute, skip the food and come for a drink instead.

    Only problem is that they don't take cards. No bueno. Have your cash on hand.

    Really bad customer service...unless you actually speak French. The food (brunch) appears to be all prepared prior to service and then reheated when ordered (exception the eggs).
