We were looking for a restaurant on Saturday evening and we were lucky to get a table. We were there just before 6 and they started turning people away until 9. Food and service were both excellent. Very extensive wine list, particularly wines from France.

An excellent dining experience-my favorite meal in Charleston. The atmosphere was authentic Paris, the ambiance was lovely and quiet, and the server (Mallory) was professional and friendly. Most of all, the food was prepared perfectly and was delicious.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Is the restaurant kid friendly? We Have a 9 yr old , 7 yr old and an 8 month old. We love French food and have heard wonderful things about the restaurant but want to be sure the children will have menu options and their presence will not be considered a disturbance to other patrons. Your feedback would be appreciated Thank you
