    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.

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

    Escargot was great - not salty. Can’t recommend the steak but the duck breast was good. Cute interior.

    Lovely patio and $1 happy hour oysters but extremely disappointing dinner. The tuna nicoise was tough and bland. The burger was overcooked. The specialty cocktail was unremarkable.

    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).

    Completely meh in every possible way. Wouldn't go out of my way to eat here, but okay enough considering the limited options in the neighborhood. Cash and Amex only (ATM in the back)

    Everything is good here but you'll take a life time to get it, if and when they even notice you exist. After my forth visit this is it: poor service, long wait, rat infested, overpriced mess..
