Honestly, both my husband and I were disappointed. We're French so we're used to French food (good and bad), and this one was just okay. Especially for the (high) price. We got the escargots and grilled calamari for starters, and the scallops snd bavette for...More

Good wine list, especially Languedoc Roussillon options, but relatively pricey. I'd recommend the French onion soup and the quarter chicken. The French fries are overrated by other...More
