Our delightful experience began with a friendly, knowledgeable waitress who explained the menu and assisted in wine selection. She aimed us at a value wine that was very good. For starters, we had the incredible crispy brussel sprouts/pancetta combination and the sumptuous escargot. The main courses measured up to the appetizers. Our two couples had the boeuf bourguignon, salmon, steak... More

The food is delicious. The service is great. The ambiance is romantic and casual. The look of the whole place makes you feel like you are somewhere in Europe. Love it!

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.

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
