This is an excellent restaurant serving quality American cuisine in an atmosphere inspired by the early 20th century architects Greene and Greene (wood accents with softly rounded corners, beautiful joinery). The food is generally of superb quality using fresh ingrediants, locally grown as much as possible. The menu changes with the seasons and always includes nightly specials. The soups are always wonderfully flavorable with a standout being a tomato based gazpacho enlivened with a scoop of lump crab meat salad. Other appetizers range from a fresh seafood platter (for 2) to meaty, falling off the bone spare ribs. Main courses feature fish, meat and pasta selections, usually served with flavored foams, reductions and vegetables. There is always a fish special and a meat special which I usually end up ordering one of these because they are always superb with unusual and very satisfying combinations of flavors. Desserts are uniformly well presented and delicious with the possible exception of the lemon tart which suffers from a leaden crust. My only criticism of the desserts is that sometimes they can go a little overboard, adding a superfluous scoop of intensely chocolate brulee to an otherwise excellent sour cream cheese cake.
My friend and I were looking for a new spot to turn into our favorite place-- and we accidentally saw this little adorable French bistro, right under our noses... the place offers an excellent & well presented food and wine, the ambiance is warm & relaxed but still very professional, and the greatest thing is that they didn't put their sign up yet--so you could turn this into your secret under-ground meeting place, or bring a date to a guaranteed enjoyable evening without sharing it with a noisy crowd... the prices are fair, and reservations are accepted but not required..their one weakness was only accepting cash-- but I was promised that this would be fixed very soon..
I have been to this restaurant many times & have always enjoyed it. Sometimes there is a wait for tables which is good because it means it must be a great place to be. The food is always good & the service is friendly & informative. I always ask about wine & they seem to recommend ones that i like. I ove the duck confit & the french fries here are amazing. I always feel welcome & love going back. One nice aspect is that when you have been there a couple of times they recognize you. All in all a great place to go
