We went there for my friend's birthday dinner. At the beginning we had a pleasant surprise from the chef. My small daughter was welcomed by the staff - they gave special sheets to color to her and a set of crayons. The atmosphere was great - a shabby chic style which is very fashionable. The only thing that made a shabby effect was a brickwall, other things were really chic. A very sophisticated ambience (and the cuisine as well). I should say that I was not very much impressed by the food - traditional French with the accent to not to eat much but to enjoy. But their desserts are excellent. A great place for an afternoon tea or a romantic lunch/dinner. My special grattitude to the staff - the service was impeccable. It's not always easy to find this quality of service in Russia - polite but not obsequious and annoying, helpful and with much attention to the details. A birthday piece of cake was a great surprise.

The best French restaurant in Moscow.
Really delicious cuisine and good selection of wines. Very nice staff.
it's always nice to spend an evening with your Love here.
Especially love the live piano playing and old black and white movies in the evenings.

The food and service were excellent here. The staff are attentive without being overbearing and they've always been welcoming. Menu available in English. The fusion of food (Thai soup!) is great and I love the salads here which are small but filled with different colors and fresh. As others have mentioned, it's also a great atmosphere.

Went in early on a Saturday night. After the hostess fully looked me up and down, she informed me that there was no availability. Find this suspect as it's a big resto and I saw empty tables.

Too bad b/c it was recommended. Will not try again.
