I really like the easy pace of this restaurant... Casually kibitz over the custom salad made while you wait & watch. There are always interesting main courses, but I also give in to my favorite, Croque Monsieur, made perfectly. As often as not, we'll have...More

Great friendly staff, with freshly prepared food, huge portion sizes, fruit was yummy as anything. Omelette was just as I want it, ambience was great with the fire in the corner. Thank you for a great visit.

Great menu and great cooking. Furnished with old French furniture. Easy to have a quiet conversation with dinner. Always a pleasure to eat there, will feel like you are in Europe. Also, easy to park close by.

I have been to this little Bistro a few times, I have always had delicious, French fare. You can also get a glass of house wine to make it even better. Great weekend brunch place too.

I recently stopped here based on my wife's recommendation when I was out in the Reston area by myself. I tried the French onion soup, the Croque Monsieur, and the Strawberries Romanoff. All were very good. This place is an order at the counter (you...More
