Went here for a birthday dinner in May 2017 and honestly was super underwhelmed. It all appears to be authentic French cuisine but doesn’t taste like it. I’m basing this off of my experience in France and living in Belgium for a year. I adore...More

This is our favorite casual French restaurant in Birmingham. We go for lunch, and try to get there early because it gets crowded quickly.

There’s usually a pretty long wait for a table, but it’s well worth it. Order the vegetable plate if you are vegetarian or just looking to go meatless for the night. It’s delicious!

Always a wonderful lunch. Very simple French country cuisine with Frank Stittsspin spin on flavor. Recommend the small plates over all others. Make sure you ask for a recommendation of wine with your meal.
