I have eaten here under both the previous management and the new. Frankly, the food has been wonderful under each; I just much preferred the art under the old.

If you are in or near Bedford and you want a nice bistro-type restaurant, versus a Country Inn or a fine French restaurant, this is the place to go. On my last dinner here, we sat outside, enjoying wine (wine by the glass is lovely here) and mussels, followed by a very nice dinner of freshly grilled salmon. The atmosphere is cozy and charming, and the entire wait staff was prompt and courteous. I have always, always enjoyed it here, and my last visit was no exception. It was a most delightful evening.

The location of this restaurant is perfect for friends living on opposite sides of Fairfield/Westchester. It's very accessible, close to major highways and trains. MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

We shared the special Brussels sprouts with Parmesan as an appetizer. Very tasty. The warm mushroom salad was delicious, the turkey burger was moist, the burger was served on a pretzel roll with a ton of fries. The onion soup was very good. Everybody enjoyed their meal.

New management took over about 2 years ago and it just hasn't been the same. What was the little engine that could (small kitchen and warm staff made intimate and personal experiences) is now the engine that just puffs smoke. They took a very local feeling bistro and tried to match it to the demographics of the area. Sometimes people with money who live out in horse country want a place they can let their hair down - this was lost on the new owners.

Great burger and fries; good Caesar salad too. A good place to go before the movies or if I just don't feel like cooking. Nothing special, but always good. Their French onion soup is such a treat in this miserable winter.

I went with a friend for lunch. We were not served any bread, while other diners were. We were not given water, even though we asked. We ordered different appetizers, but both had the crab cakes for our main. The price was $18. The server told us that we could have one or two crab cakes; we both opted for one. We would have been happy to share a plate, but no. Surprise, surprise, we were charged $18 each for 1/2 the food. They claim we were given more of there tasteless side salad (overdressed lettuce), but honestly had we known, we would have had two and taken one home. What a way to rip you off!!! Thai shrimp good, but at $14 for 8 small deep fried shrimp it wasn't worth it. Coffee bad (and lukewarm). Service blah.
