    I went with 2 friends a few months back and we all loved it. Not the foodiest of places, but good solid french bistro fare. The portions were very generous but still well proportioned. We split a few of the salads which were fresh and lightly dressed. The entrees were just a touch salty (for my taste). The duck was a real standout and my friend was very impressed by the beef cheeks. The dessert was not overly sweet and made a nice end to the meal. It was surprisingly empty when we went (a bit early on a Friday night) but maybe patronage has picked up since then.

      I've been several times and love it. Warm friendly service and delicious food. Nothing extraordinary, just solid bistro fare done well.

        Terrific little place. Very good food. Charming folks who run it. The outdoor patio is fun. It's a great neighborhood find....
