I must admit, after reading the wide range of feedback on Trip Advisor, I was concerned that the restaurant might be too stodgy for my husband's and my tastes. Quite the opposite! We completely loved our meal! We appreciated the classic cuisine, and it was a refreshing change from nouvelle cuisine. We need to give a special shout out to... More

The experience at this restaurant was magnificent. It was Super Bowl evening and the end of our Winter Carnival experience. Four Americans trying to get by on little French. The staff was wonderful to us. We were spoiled with attention, conversation, and anything we asked for. Watching our selections prepared for us at table side was delightful. A wonderful place...

We thoroughly enjoyed this quintessential French fine-dining experience. The cocktails were nicely crafted. The Caesar Salad and steaks were prepared table-side to perfection. We capped the meal with St. Honore... More
