My group of five was enthusiastic about the food here, with one small exception. Salads and desserts was quite good, as were most of the entrees. But the cassoulet was a bit of a disapointment. Too many breadcrumbs, underseasoned (lacking in garlic!), and the sausage...More

Ate here with two friends after a concert. Wait staff was friendly and efficient. The wine they chose for me was perfect. The food was delicious. You pay for the setting, the service, and the food and it is worth it

Excellent French food with a Genuine atmosphere of being in France. The waiters are wonderful ( and nicer than their French counterparts), the menu is French, the music & wine is French. Yes you feel like your 3000 miles east of Philly.

During Restaurant Week the place was packed but service and food were both good. The escargot and the duck were both delicious. We tried the French hard cider which turned out to be surprisingly good
