The room had a cheery Mediterranean feel and the windows overlooked a pleasant block. Since we dined with 2 other folks I had a chance to sample a decent amount of the French fare. (I even got to sample a burger though it was dinnertime). The burger was ok, the Chicken was a little dry, the steak was just steak, the frites were good and the vegetables were very good. The vegetables were the best part of the meal and I am no vegetarian. My son John and I think we are liking vegetables at restaurants so much more these days because modern chefs have really gotten the hang of how to cook them, Don't forget to order the Haricots Verts. Unfortunately, the service was slow and inattentive. We are not the type to rush, so when I say slow I mean...really slow... Even though the place was not crowded. With 2 bottles of modest Sancerre (At 50 bucks a bottle!) the tab came to about $300 with tip for 4.

I have been to Le Magnifique several times and it is absolutely fantastic. The food is prepared perfectly. You feel as if you are in Paris. The staff is lovely. The owner Stephanie is terrific and it is a "winner" Try it!!
