    Le Hamburger is actually a cheeseburger, with your choice of Gruyère or blue and port-grilled onions, which add a pleasant hint of sweetness to this perfectly pink patty on a butter-slicked bun. Read more

    Great bar, interesting and unique cocktails and friendly bar tenders. Food choices on the small side but escargot, salmon, trout and frites all excellent. Prices reasonable. Service very good.

    5 plates between two people is plenty and for around $70 with drinks and dessert, it's a steal. Pork rillettes are super tasty and so is their chocolate crepe cake. The champagne beer is worth a try!

    Small plate plate bistro classics like Croque Monsieur, Mussels with Curry & Escargot are all good. Entrees like Coq Au Vin are also available. Good wine selection. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Raw oysters and smoked salmon w avocado were fresh and delicious. Also loved the pretzel croissant with spicy mustard sauce. The vanilla creme brulee was perfect. Service and ambiance were lovely

    Good place. Would have been great if they kept the old Brasserie Joe menu combined with new look and vibe. Everything is an "almost" terrific. Skatewing, Chicken paillard and the Burger when in doubt.

    The chicken paillard and coq au vin are amazing, especially for the low price! The spaetzle is definitely the most delectable side, and the pink grapefruit and champagne sorbet is a must for dessert!

    AMAZING food. Crispy duckling and the salmon with leeks were to die for. And try the lemon tart. Perfection.

    Once you get over the English menu with French pop ups here and there, I recommend the French "traditional steak with frites". Classique mais terriblement efficace! :)

    I'm a big fan of the lamb meatballs, a straightforward-looking dish brought to life by hints of mint and basil and a lively piquillo pepper and tomato sauce.

    The smaller plates include no-brainer hits such as toasted goat cheese with a tangy tomato marmalade and tuna tartare brightened with lemon and mint.

    The duck confit is made with wheatberry and candied cherries, while scallops come with a lime beurre blanc... a perfect, fruity twist on the classics.

    Great experience, overall. The steak tartare is a sensation, the truffle cauliflower is top notch, and the pistachio pot is divine.

    Great Mac cheese, tuna, fried duck skin, filet mignon, and choc mousse for dessert. Wine: belleruche Grenache/syrah red or Marc Breder Vouvray.

    Mac n cheese and smoked salmon are a must. Wine on tap is a fun idea, but the wine list has better selections. Definitely a must!

    The Pacific King Salmon is delectable. Coupled with a wild mushroom side, I thought I had died and woke up at Benihana.

    Well-executed unpretentious menu of French cuisine. Crowd is varied, and make a reservation for dinner unless you're willing to wait for a bar table.

    For a night scene it's more late 20's+. I wouldn't really go looking to meet people either... it seems like a lot of groups that came to just hang out with each other :P

    Not as much of a favorite as Brasserie Jo was (this replaced that) but it's a fine Sunday evening downtown dinner option. A bit pricey, and the staff is not well drilled. Read more
