    Pricey but good atmosphere and amazing service. Get the garlic frites with truffle butter. So good and perfect for two people paired obviously with champagne.

    Pops for Champagne’s La Vie en Rose cocktail, a sweet drink with Champagne, elderflower liqueur, bitters and sugar, may inspire thoughts of running away to travel the world. Read more

    Waited 15 minutes to get noticed in an otherwise pretty empty room...mediocre drinks, aloof bartender. 30 mins to order and pay for 2 easy to make drinks. I get atmosphere, but this place has none :\

    Trendy place, can get crowded on weekends. Food is pretty good, but I'm sad that they removed the Fried chicken thighs from the menu and made it only available downstairs at the Watershed.

    They have many bottles of wine (mostly sparkling wine) and a handful of half-bottles. I definitely recommend the Black Tiger Shrimp & the Duck BLTs. I would recommend against the Tempura Cheese Curds.

    Mike the bartender looks like Jesus and is a master mixologist with an encyclopedic knowledge of champagne. Ask him what's good from their list of list of small producers... He won't steer you wrong!

    Hungry? You MUST indulge in the Wisconsin Tempura Cheese Curds. They're buttery and rich (and pairs nicely with champagne, right?!).

    Ask Michael for a half bottle of Ruinart and a cheese plate. You won't be disappointed. Ruinart is the oldest champagne house in the France.
