This is a great dining experience, everything just right from the time you walk in. Very polite greeting, great table service, not crowded, limited but very good menu and the server was fantastic.

We had specials of French Onion soup and Sole, both very well prepared, well presented and extremely tasty, we enjoyed it.

I chose this restaurant a year ago, to celebrate our engagement and my wife's birthday. We did the 5 course degustation menu with wine pairing and enjoyed it so, that we repeated it a year later in April 2014. We were happy to find that there have been no price increases since last year. Its an intimate setting, with a lit fireplace crackling away in the corner on cold nights. The service, food and wine pairing were top notch. Two and a half hours later we left feeling properly fed, wined and completely content.

Set in a residential house built of concrete (which was modern 30 years ago) this French Restaurant has been serving excellent French inspired food for 21 years. Not romantic or intimate setting unfortunately. But always fabulous food. The wines and service just as good. We were there for lunch and I believe dinner is more intimate and romantic.

My wife and I had a tad bit of a disappointing experience. Following the hype, we made a reservation with high hopes. The night turned out to be quite disappointing, considering the price one has to pay. First things first, there are no parking and we had to park outside in the street. Inside, we were allocated a table next to a balcony. A cold wind was blowing and they were unable to close the door because on the outside there was 1 table. The wine list is well worth the effort with some decent wines which are surprisingly decently priced. The food is tasty, but the portion sizes are too small for the price being paid. The service was also not that great with an air of complacent haughtiness all around. We will not attend this establishment again, for the same price and even less, we can attend for example La Madeleine restaurant.

We entertained 5 guests to dinner at Brasserie de Paris this passed weekend .All the guests decided to have the Degustation menu. The food was superbly paired with the wines and beautifully presented . Table décor was stylishly simple and we enjoyed the privacy of the private dining room looking out onto the lush garden However, management should train the staff waiting on table, to serve the meal to the guest's left ,remove plates from the guests right and not to remove the plates until the last guest has finished.
