Charming bistro in an unexpected storefront spot. Food is consistently very good. Well-balanced summer tasting menu is lovely. Not a large menu, and to me, that means everything is fresh and prepared to order--which it is at this bistro. Some may find it a bit...More

We go every year or so for special occasions and the last time was truly memorable. Shared the snail appetizer, a fish and a lamb dish. Everything was divided up and presented beautifully as a tasting menu. Had the desert trio, tres leches, creme brule...More

Bravo! Classic French bistro. Warm, gracious environment, though petit. I personally love the rack of lamb. Great desserts, especially the line up of creme brûlée.

Calling itself a French restaurant, even in Kenilworth NJ, takes a bit more than a French name and accent. The hostess is in shorts and sneakers, for the French ambience I guess The food is overprized ($30+), blunt and tasteless. Foie gras is just a...More

This is my favorite French restaurant, great atmosphere, handful of tables, very cozy. Some think it's expensive, some say you get what you pay for. Menu is constantly changing, my favorites are bouillabaisse, magret de canard and pan-seared Foie Gras is simply amazing. Chef Philippe...More
