Our service was amazing from our waiter, friendly and polite. The food was great, we started with the warm bread, and shared the Truffle Frites, boy they were both good. I had the Mushroom Risotto, and with the fresh truffle oil, it was also great....More

My wife had the oysters and the seared tuna. Both were creative and superb as was my chicken parfait and lightly smoked salmon. I am not a fish eater, but this was delicate, flavourful and very interesting permutation. To be highly recommended.
