This is classic French country cooking that is a stand out in an area with many good, but not great places to eat. Salads are good, the eggplant appetizer phenomenal, and entres such as the Poulet (chicken), Steak, and Grouper (special) are standouts. Best wine...More

The food was not as expected for this price range. We both had the duck, with orange sauce. The sauce was bland and tasteless. The asparagus was so-so. The duck was not fresh tasting or cooked to the way I would expect for $28 a...More

We stopped in for an early dinner and had a lovely meal. No reservation, but no wait at 6 pm on a Saturday. Quiet, good service, good food. French-ish menu, but with items for those not inclined to be continental.

Heard they had wine flights. Bartender said "No more." Asked bartender for wine recommendations, but she had none. I looked at the wines that were on the menu and googled them to find out what was good. Average at best.
