A real haven...excellent wine and lovely food. It was a real treat to find this place in the midst of a touristy area. I especially loved the charcuterie.

Over the years I have eaten here several times.

It does not disappoint

Small selection but everything is authentic French, fresh and reasonable.

Abundant wines by the glass.

And great retail prices on the wine as well

If you've been to Provence or other villages in France you can't beat it

I ate there twice this week

I am French on both sides of the family, only second generation and my great grandfather was Maitre d'hotel at Chez Mouquin in Manhattan during it's hey day. So I might know a little about authentic French cuisine and atmosphere. If you like a place you can get small plates and a bottle off the shelf, then you'll love this place. Sit outside on a nice day and people watch like a true Parisienne. My favorites are Tripe a la Nicoise, any pate de fois gras, charcuterie and cheese combination! I make better beef bourgoignon and escargot but hey I don't have to cook them here and you'll be amazed that they do in their little kitchen in the middle of this very quaint place. I fell in love with my husband here after taking my first bite of Tripe, all I could think of is I'll go home and call dad and tell him that I found it just the way he used to make it, but alas my father had passed away the year before and my now husband looked at me as tears filled my eyes when I looked up from my plate and said "I know and I'm sorry"....
You will fall in love too! I'm sure!

Delightful...

Foie Gras with a Gewurztraminer.... in Omaha? Wow. Did I mention delightful.

Dropped by for some wine and finger foods... Very nice assortment of appetizers. Service is awesome. Just ask the waitress for wine pairing.

Very much a European type of service. Once the customer has secured a table - it's yours for the night. The waitress won't bother you until you are ready. Just let them know you're ready.

And, my fellow Americans, chill...

This isn't McDonald's. It's not a "normal" restaurant - you know, get in, get served and get out...

Enjoy the food. Enjoy the wine. Enjoy the company of friends. Enjoy being left alone by the waiter...

Charming...

It is a really unique place. The wines are not cheap and we (as wine lovers) are not sure if the storage of the bottles (not lying, but standing) and the heat inside the main room is especially good for the quality of wines. If you buy expensive wine you should have at least the proper storage.
We did not eat there, just had coffee and white wine. Both were tasty and the service was fine, too. Maybe not overwhelming friendly, but we did not stay there for long anyway.
Would go back there when in Omaha again to check out the food.
