Had the french onion soup; best since France. Creme Brule melts in your mouth. Wife had Fish soup and salmon; Tres bon.
It's a little out of the way but well worth it. Note that they close at 2:00 pm for lunch and they mean it. Not much english spoken here.

Started with French Onion Soup and Escargot, then onto Osso Bucco, which was excellent with pasta and the house Spanish red wine. Another night we had mussels with frites and were surprised with about 5 dozen in an onion wine sauce! Nice atmosphere outside and service by Sofia.

Amazing in several respects. The menu offers many classic French dishes, more than the other bistros we tried. I had the warm goat cheese salad and veal brains simply sautéed in butter and capers. Both were superb. My wife had the salmon and it was perfectly prepared (not overly so) and presented. It was a Friday night and the place was packed, both upstairs (our choice) and downstairs. One woman and one man handled all the service, and did it well! Most other places would have 2 or 3 times the wait staff. These 2 were amazing and efficient and pleasant! Finally, I made it a point to check the kitchen on our way out as the stairs provide a quick view. With the extensive menu I was expecting a major operation. To my surprise, there were just 2 chefs at work, and I mean hard at work! This is a well run bistro that does it right!

My wife and I went for a dinner and had awesome time and food at the restaurant. The French onion soup was terrific and duck confit was delicious. Also the rabbit meat was very interesting in a good way.

Reservation is a must!!!!!!!
Seen people turned away b.c no seats available or the space to wait. They will just ask you to come back on another time.

Wanted great onion soup and have had much better at home and in Taos. Steak and frites OK but not exceptionable. Probably wouldn't return
