Early dinner, should have been easier for the staff since the restaurant wasn't busy yet. After 10 minutes of waiting, a waiter asked if we would like to know who our waiter was going to be. Huh? So we can google him? 10 more minutes...More

Enjoyable outdoor dining with a great wait staff. Food was mediocre, au poivre sauce was well below expectations.

Delightful little restaurant in San Jose with all the ambiance one would find in a bistro in Paris. Food was delicious and our waiter was attentive but not overbearing. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for a lovely afternoon lunch or evening dinner.

Prices are reasonable compared to other restaurants in the San Jose area. I am not saying it is cheap, you should expect to pay $22-$35 for a dinner entrée,$9-$11 for a soup or salad and ~$8 for a dessert. These are actually very good prices...More
