Had a work dinner here and we certainly indulged with the brussel sprouts and shrimp flatbread! Seriously, the best brussel sprouts I've ever eaten. Awesome atmosphere with the fireplace place, great ambiance. Wine selection was local and vast, and prices were reasonable. Make sure you get a reservation! Super cool spot right near the water and highly recommend!

Had dinner here our last night in San Diego and it was ideal - ambiance, food, company, service. Seated on their enclosed patio with a roaring fire. Great glass of Bordeaux. Best steak frites ever - perfectly cooked and seasoned ribeye, lovely flavored crunchy haricots verts, yummy frites. Attentive, charming waitress. We felt like we'd stopped in a lovely cafe... More

We stopped at this place with some family who recommended going there. The food was great despite our inability to pronounce most of the things on the menu...finger pointing worked just fine (don't lie, you'll do it too or have). I had the Salmon and it was prepared perfectly! My wife had the short rib flatbread and she also really... More

We met another couple here Saturday night for drinks and food. The place was packed and very lively. I ordered the house red, and the bartender heard me say it was not great and he swooshed in with a delicious Pinot Noir to replace it-in a PACKED place. That's great customer service! Our waiter was also super friendly and spent... More

Stopped in on a Tuesday night with my husband and another couple on a whim--- immediately felt transported to a French/Parisian bistro! The ambiance, decor, candles, smells, everything, on point. Great back patio area as well! We ordered some apps and entrees and shared-- the brussel sprouts appetizer was awesome, the escargot fresh, the duck confit was great, the pomme... More

Spent the weekend in San Diego and ate some amazing food and this was the best. My wife ordered the Brussel sprout appetizer. I hate brussel sprouts and yet I really enjoyed these. For my entree I had steak and frites. Better than any I have ever had. That includes a highly acclaimed restaurant in Paris that I thought could... More

Loved the French-themed atmosphere - felt a bit transported here! We had the yummy chorizo mussels and pommes frites and two very delicious salads (endive and beet) . I was partial to the endive salad - it was served with farro, pear and the most delicious goat cheese. The wine selection was lovely as well - loved the wine flight.... More

This hidden gem is tucked humbly away on a street side in cozy Ocean Beach. If you're not looking for it, you could miss it - which, would be a shame. The restaurant is several small but charming dining areas, partitioned and appointed much like an old countryside home. The staff is professional, knowledgeable, and aims to please. We tried...
