Made a booking here this morning for dinner the same night without any trouble. Staff were amazingly helpful and even helped me with a "birthday dessert platter".
Food was fabulous! Very accommodating with gluten free requirements. Service was impeccable and couldn't fit another mouthful in by the of the meal.
Highly recommended!

My fourth time here in both locations and a welcome reminder of deliciousness on my doorstep. Was cosy, each course very good, as was the service, good wine selection - yummo Alsatian Gewurz & nice to see a restaurant humming with guests. I think the pricing was very fair & all our dishes deemed pretty delectable.

Very nice ambience although it's a small dinning area, good food. An excellent place to have a birthday/date. Main courses weren't impressive, but I liked the entrees and desserts. We enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere. Service were good, but not warmly enough, maybe my expectation were too high :P

This is a great place for French food, with good staff and ambience. In general the meals are a good size but the French onion soup is a very large meal. There is a good French wine list, a fair selection by the glass, and very good advice as to food matching. Price is good with mains about $35 entrees $18-$25 and desserts about $15. All in all a very pleasant dinning experience.

I will definitely be returning. Excellent food and service. We had the 5 course surprise option with wine matching and it tasted amazing. The waiting staff was really friendly and never to far away to refill the water. I also appreciated the complimentary baguette and garlic butter.
