    the chateaubriand is a must. prix fixe menu includes one of the main dishes and appetizers and dessert. opt out of the dessert on the prix fixe menu and get the souffle for a little extra instead!

    Don't read in the car ride there - lots of curvy roads that made me car sick!

    Nestled in the heart of Great Falls, the old French cottage feel will seduce you into faraway lands. Treat your date to the chateaubriand for two with a bottle of Bordeaux.
