Our concierge recommended this restaurant and I hesitated as their website is a bit outdated. I am so glad we went. The food is great but the real standout was our waiter George. He genuinely wanted to make sure every diner was well taken care...More

Traditional, mostly French food. Great wine list. Competent, friendly, and fast service. Nice interior with a wild collection of old stuff and decorations. Recommended.

We had the filet steak combo, and it was good. Warning: if you ask for medium but express concern about pink or bloody meat, they will recommend it cooked well done. If so, the meat will be too well done to actually enjoy the flavor...More
