We've been looking all over town for good steak frites and this is the place! The steak was tender and flavorful and you get your choice of sauces (bearnaise, spicy bearnaise, bordelaise and poivre). 2 of our steaks were cooked just right (medium rare) but the third was a little over cooked. The frites were crisp and well seasoned and are unlimited. We didn't ask for more as we were pretty full. The escargots are served in a tiny tureen (6 snails) covered by a cap of puff pastry. Pretty good. The steak tartare was good too. All the food we tried was good. We were worried about the street parking but managed to snag a spot right in front. Unusual given that when we've tried to go to Good Stuff or We the Pizza in the past, street parking was impossible. Sometimes it's easier to just take the metro except on the weekend when they're doing track work and the metro runs every 20 minutes. I think because we were there on a Saturday night instead of a week night, and it was early (6:30) we were able to get a parking spot. I didn't care too much for the room they sat us in though -- just at the top of the stairs. We felt pretty isolated. Then a very loud, boisterous table was seated across the room and made it impossible to have any conversation. Their shreiks of laughter were so jarring that when new tables were seated they were dismayed at the noise. Service wasn't bad but they forgot our order of brussel sprouts so I can't say what they tasted like. The creme brulee oddly had chocolate chips scattered on top. The profiteroles weren't bad although the puff pastry was a bit dry and maybe wasn't as fresh as it should have been. We'd definitely go back, but would like to be seated in the larger room.
