Unfortunately the French Garden has gone out of business. This spot had gone through a few incarnations and not certain what will come next. It is a lovely building but maybe not such a great location. A destination place for sure.

Wonderful sandwiches, delicious salads. I especially enjoyed the Croque-Monsieur. Gourmet lunch at a great price! Delicious!

This lovely venue was a classy spot to enjoy for special events. The property is now for sale. If you're interested in a great location to open your own place, this would be perfect!

The price is high but the food and service are very good. It is a place for a special occasion. It has a nice patio for good weather and a nice lounge for bad weather.
