We had dinner with friends at Tapenade on a Saturday night. While the restaurant was busy it was quiet enough for us to converse easily, which is a feature that we always seek. The food was masterfully prepared and presented. The flavors were outstanding. The salmon was prepared just the way that I specified - thoroughly cooked with a magnificent sauce on the side. The lamb was tender and very tasty. The service was friendly, efficient and attentive. Parking is adequate on the street and in the lot. Having reservations on a Saturday night is always a good idea.

Each course was artfully presented and outstanding in taste. The waiter was excellent and quite helpful in selecting each course. The menu is in both French and English. The prices were reasonable for the quality of the food. Reminded me of being in France again.
