Great food, well environment and nice service. Highly recommended for who seek for France cuisine! We tried it's beef steak, salmon and desserts. No regrets and happy meal experience.

To the Chef: why do you present to your customers such a zero as a French Onion Soup. The cheese gratin was nice, but the soup itself one watery thing, out of the freezer (for sure!), the onions no color (not sautéed in butter), no seasoning in the broth, just plain water. It's the worst onion soup I had in my life and I am not a newcomer to it. I am from Alsace-Lorraine and was virtually fed up with onion soup—the real one. Your restaurant staff is mute, they are not exuberant in any way. I can see they are afraid. Are your bosses shouting at them? (Which is the usual attitude of the French here, I know it, I am living since 15 years in this country). I have met both of your owners several times before you opened the restaurant. I never thought you would perform so poorly. The Sauvignon Blanc was nice, but overpriced at 6$ a glass—and it was just 1/3 of a glass. No. I won't come again.

You must have landed on a bad day. Maybe the chef was absent. The chef is from Belgium and I have eaten at this venue several times and was never disappointed. But I must admit I never tried the onion soup. I will give it a... More
