The food and service was great. We had the mushrooms appetizer, which was for my boyfriend and I to share and he loved so much that he end up eating all by himself. Then, I had the Sea Bass special which I can't not even express how tasty it was. I would recommend.

We liked the warm demeanor of the French waitress and the atmosphere. The food was better than expected. The entire meal was much better than we expected based on some of the negative reviews we read on Yelp.

We went on a Sunday evening and had 8:00 PM reservations. We had no problem being seated in a timely manner, despite what some of the a Yelp reviewers had posted. The restaurant was fairly well open. Yes, the meal lasted about 1:45, but we found that to be a nice change from the quick table turn restaurants out there.

good service.

the 4 course meal was similar price as their offering. later found out that same meal was $30.50 per person, and I paid $55. for two. problem was that I had to put 18% tip on the $107 travel zoo regular cost tab. soup was delicious but entrees were so so.
