We've visited several times and everything is made to order. The banana caramel crepe is an amazing dessert choice. The ham and cheese and crunchy cheesy... More

We have been several times. You must go with friends, so you can split the sweet and savory crepes. It's so hard to choose just one! They are all delicious!

Waited in line for 30 minutes and grabbed an open table as we were ordering. Then we were kicked out of the table we were sitting at, waiting on our meal. Apparently it's 'not' open seating, although that's what is promoted inside. However, on a positive note, after waiting a while, the food was delicous (crepes) and we were comped... More

I was impressed with the restaurant though the price was definitely more than expected. We will be back to try the dessert items as we were too full this visit. The ham/cheese crepe was delicious, you can tell the cheese was upscale. This was the first time I have had what I consider real french onion soup since I left... More
