“Great food and ‘a lot’ of it”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

We opted for the 5 course meal and one thing for sure is that you won’t go away hungry. By the time the 5th course was served we were quite full. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Because of the variety of dishes we ordered the meal turned into a 6 or 7 course meal, with one person eating while the others watched, that could have been smoothed out.

Lobster Risotto was perfectly prepared. The Pork Belly was excellent, but the tenderloin it came with was a bit much for the size of the dish. The Baked Chocolate Souffle should not be missed and the Warm Louisiana Butter Cake is excellent. The Trio of Crème Brulees were a bit of miss with us.

At the end of the evening they give out something to take home for breakfast the next day.
Service was outstanding with the servers making us feel as if we were the only ones in the restaurant.

“Simply Incredible”
Reviewed 27 April 2012 via mobile

The food was as perfectly executed as the decor was beautiful. The wait staff were very accommodating and friendly too. My only two (minor) complaints are that the tables are too close together and I'd like to see more inventiveness in the menu. Everything was great, but there weren't any big surprises when the dishes came out. Highly recommended!

“Treated like Queens!”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

There is no way that words can adequately convey how absolutely amazing our experience was here! Since there were 7 of us, they gave us our own private dining room for no extra charge, and it came with our own private restroom - VIP treatment all the way! The food was delicious (roasted Maine lobster, seared scallops and the baked chocolate souflee with 2 sauces) but it was the outstanding service that truly made the night an unforgettable experience!

“Great traditional French restaurant”
Reviewed 24 April 2012 via mobile

The food was rich and delicious. As you would expect from the bet restaurant and the service was fabulous.

I just wish the food was a bit more modern and adventurous. But overall fantastic.
