    Authentic French except for the John Dory, with spicy chili! Delicious and highly recommended. Reasonable price.

    It was a cold day and an outside door was left open a few times by kitchen staff - very cold draft. The waitress had to keep closing it. She was very helpful.

    We had the pleasure of celebrating another anniversary here. Such a perfect evening. Staff were attentive and knowledgeable, with great senses of time and space by knowing when to come over, and knowing when to leave us to enjoy our meal. The food was divine. Highly recommended
