Pourquoi Pas on Sheppard?

Just noticed this little house on Sheppard, a block or so West of Yonge. The sign reads "Pourquoi Pas, French Restaurant". Never heard of it. Any first-hand experiences from 'hounds at this place? How long has it been around? Is it worth a visit? TIA...
Cozy, romantic interior. Service excellent especially when owner is around. However, food is only mediocre, your typical French bistro cooking eg., Canard a l'orange, Coq au vin etc. Nothing really stand out.
It's funny how all the replies thus far are all a similiar pattern (including mine)...
My wife and I went there once about 5 years ago, I can't even recall what we had. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good enough such that we made a return trip. I'm surprised it's still operating after all these years..... so there must be some loyal returning customers .
I went their twice and had fairly decent meals, especially the pepper steak. The third time it was fairly poor.
Thanks, everyone, for the responses. I guess that I will not rush out to try the place. But I will keep it in mind for that night when we don't want to cook and we run out of other options.
