Not what I expected

I went to a large group dinner last night and was very disappointed in the food. The service and atmosphere were fine. The tarragon aioli salad dressing had zero flavor whatsover, the bread was bland, the spanakopita was also flavorless. My entree (filet mignon) was served cold with a few hot spots in the potatoes it was sitting on. My neighbors ordered various seafood dishes and the smell was overwhelmingly strong. (Smelly seafood=not fresh) The chocolate souffle was dry and burnt in places. I probably would not be willing to give them another chance, especially at those prices. Thankfully, my meal was paid for by a pharmaceutical representative.

Perfect every single time. The food is spectacular, the service is not overbearing but attentive, and the ambiance ties it all together. If you have an occasion where everything needs to be perfect - don't worry - this is the place.

Fantastic French

Quite simply the best meal I've had in Memphis. Make sure to have the heavenly chocolate souffle for dessert.
