“Exquisite, elegant, gracious service”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Five decades of grace and elegance and still this beautiful restaurant still feels fresh, possibly because of the spectacular flowers and soft glow, but certainly because the wait staff and Maitre d' whose careful attentions feel personal and sincere. I wish they could train the rest of America's wait staff. It was a splendid visit.

“Picturesque setting, wonderful food.”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. The food was outstanding. The restaurant itself was absolutely picturesque. The lighting, flowers and decor were something out of a movie. The service was top-notch. We had one of the best meals we ever had. Be prepared to spend some serious money, but it's worth it especially for a special occasion.

“French Food and flowers for $400”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

This classic French restaurant is known for its beautiful flower arrangements everywhere in the space and that was certainly the case. However the food did not live up to expectations. We had the lobster bisque which was dark brown and not as good as I have had elsewhere. The ox tail was quite good along with the chicken. Biggest letdown was the wine. They only have French wines and none less than $110. That adds significantly to the meal price but we are spoiled by the quality and price of California wines and the French just don't compete at $150.

“Best of the Best!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Best French restaurant outside of Paris. . .and probably better than most in France! Excellent food and service with lovely décor! Expensive but worth it!
