Birthday. As usual the cheese soufflé was magnificent and one of the main reasons I go back there. The service impeccable and attentive. The ambience is fabulous and the flowers always help build the romantic atmosphere. Everything great but I found the beef bourgoignon a bit dry and overly fatty. Should have gone with what I know is good.

Fun, felt a little like going back in time. The venue is full of quiet corners, not too bright or dark. Desserts are the best part although the other offerings are competent and interesting. We learned some things about wine, too; the list is not just the usual suspects.

We attended for our 25th anniversary. Roger on the second floor was incredibly attentive but not obnoxious. He made an excellent wine recommendation and was jut super kind. The food cannot even be described. I had Japanese Wagyu beef and my husband had oxtail. The oysters gratinee melted in our mouths. We will be back and won’t wait for a special occasion!

I do not have enough superlatives. The entire experience was outstanding. We went at 6:30, which would generally mean theater. The staff was moving to expedite things. Once we let them know we were no going to the theater, things slowed to a nice pace.

Old School fine dining traditional French. What a treat!! Loved the lobster with grapefruit and avocado. Disappointed that fois gras was terrine style prefer the other. Duck breast was fabulous as was filet. Had pistachio soufflé for dessert that I will dream about. it was superb and intensely flavored in the best possible way.

We took my mother in law for her 80th birthday. Everything was amazing! The Dover sole and the celery root soup...incredible! They brought a delicious apple soufflé, complete with candle, as a birthday surprise. One of the best meals ever!!

I had a celebratory dinner with my son; neither of us had been to the restaurant before. We felt that the staff were extremely professional and, unlike many gourmet French restaurants, friendly. The ambience of the restaurant, with really fantastically elaborate floral arrangements, makes it feel special. Portion sizes are excellent - not too much, not too little - and the food was extremely good.

It was lovely and delicious as usual. I had indicated that it was our anniversary (49th) and was a tiny bit disappointed that there was no acknowledgement. Usually someone writes in chocolate on the dessert plate. Or some other little gesture.
