We frequent this Bistro several times a year. The service is very special, I don't know any better. The food is unique. Prices are expensive, but fair for the quality of food choices and service.

I enjoyed the Gazpacho (soup of the day) as well as the pan fried calamari special. The perfectly crisp pommes frites are the best I've had in a while. The thin apple tart dessert was disappointing, it seemed under baked. Our server Arturo was great!...More

Excellent meal. Menus was so tempting we ordered from all courses and were awfully full afterward. Much more of a typical French menu than most American-French restaurants. Veal Kidneys and Coq au Vin were great. Go with lots of people for sampling! Reservations a must.

I love French Bistros. I hate pretend French Bistros of which we have a lot in California. This Bistro is authentic and Pierre (yes really) is authentically French and he is in charge in the kitchen alongside his wife Esther. To begin we shared a...More
