We decided to grab a quick breakfast here before heading home from our vacation. The food was good and came out pretty quickly with the exception of an order of crepes. I had to return to the counter to ask for that portion of our...More

Went based on the many reviews. Lots of great authentic French choices, however the service was a bit rude as it is confusing when you walk in where to order. It is more of a fast food set up.

Ate dinner here and had a take out lunch. It is fine dinning and the service is excellent. The french onion soup was flavorful and the quiche was a whole personal sized quiche. For me it was enough for two days.

We ate croque-monsieur and a roast beef sandwich for lunch. The croque-monsieur is fabulous!! For dessert we had crème brûlée and éclair! Wonderful! We'll come back soon for sure!

If you don't mind a cafeteria style restaurant and can get by with standing in line to order, take the time to enjoy the quaint family style dining area. The mushroom soup was delicious as was the Shrimp Crepe Florentine. The only bad thing was...More
