My entree, I had the steak and it was cooked well and very tender. The pork belly had a bit too much fat. But the appetizer with the cheese and tomato was excellent.

Didn't care for the dessert. We had two. The profiteroles were delicious, but the clafouti was not.

Food and Ambiance was great

Oct 16, 2014 Margaret California, United States

The ambiance was wonderful. Just crowded enough, just noisy enough, just dark enough, just cool enough.

Don't count on your table being ready; the timing part is still a work in progress. The good news is that the bar scene is awesome, so there's plenty of people-watching to be had while you wait, not to mention interesting barkeep inspiration.
