This is a special occasion restaurant. The welcome is warm and friendly, the atmosphere is charming French country, and the food is delicious. The service is knowledgeable and attentive. All in all, a most enjoyable experience.

My family and I have been to this place for special occasions several times and have found their food to be consistently great. I've always maintained their crab cakes are the best in Richmond but switched up for the first time tonight and ordered the filet mignon. Wow, it was the best steak I've ever had! Not sure who their... More

We went here to dine on a very cold winters evening and we were warmed not only by the beautiful fire, but by the charm of this sweet place. The service was attentive but not overbearing. The food was yummy. Our group enjoyed the steaks, the rock fish and the duck breast. My only fault with the food is that... More

Two of us had tuna tartar and one the escargot. We shared bites agreeing that escargot and tuna tartare we're both delectable. We all chose the... More

Had a business dinner here. The staff was very friendly and helpful not only helping us with the setup for our business purpose but also getting dinner setup without interrupting us.

We've been one or twice a year for quite some time and love it for a night out with fine dining and great martinis. Seafood is excellent, which is my hallmark for a great restaurant. Upper range but well worth it.

The food was delicious, nice portions and very fresh. Lots of seafood on the menu and for the specials. The wait staff was very attentive and patient while my friend and I caught up and drank wine. a great experience. was on the pricey side but was worth the money for the food and the atmosphere.

The food here is to die for. My husband and I tried steak and seafood and both were prepared exactly as ordered and delicious. I finished the leftovers today for lunch and they were still fantastic. The restaurant is a bit pricey but worth it.

The lamb is perfect, the rockfish is great, the duck is good, desserts are out of this world, yet, what sets this place apart from ALL the others is the service. Annie is exceptional, graceful, professional. Her wait staff are most perceptive to the needs of the patrons but not in an overwhelming way...unobtrusive.
