We had a table of six...started with oysters...delicious. Great service...cool table by the Windows. We all ordered entrees, all hits. Dessert was good. Drinks good. Beer menu wasn't the best but tons of wine and whatnot. Great place.

As someone who works in downtown St. Paul and someone who has witnessed (and participated in) its revitalization, I feel qualified to say a few things about this place.

Solid restaurant for years. Classic french dishes including a tasty cassoulet! They also have a nice raw bar with fresh oysters other shellfish. A bit spendy, but great for special occasions.

We arrived for an 11:45 birthday lunch at 11:40. We were all going to get the pasta du jour, however after taking one order, server informed us it was the last order of special of day. At 11:45?

Having lived in France, I really enjoy eating "real" French food and they have it. I especially liked the escargot

We has the most impeccable service--absolutely attentive staff watched over our table and timed everything perfectly. The waitress' recommendations were all brilliant, and she was very kind. However, I am gluten-free and had checked the menu in advance to make sure they could accommodate me, and I made this clear to our server as I ordered. However, something (the sauce?)... More
