    Open seats and they decide to seat my wife and I next to the bathroom. Only thing that stood out was the chicken liver mousse. Most of the food was pedestrian. They need more substance for the price.

    The ribeye was cooked to the chef's recommendation was perfect... So big, but perfect. Late night romantic looking spot but supposedly a good lunch early in the day also.

    I'm not clear on all thee great reviews. Although I don't get the burger. Service was less than good. A smile isn't the only thing you need. Food is boring and bland.

    Happened to visit during happy hour, and was pleasantly surprised to get such top-notch food at very low prices. Cheese plate, olives and fresh bread were all delicious! Cute atmosphere, too.

    Good macarons, but very tiny! That's why you can get a dozen for only $6.
