This place is tiny (unless there is a dining room somewhere that I didn't notice) so I'd recommend calling ahead. We went with a group of 8 and had a spectacular meal. The Cod and the Boulliabaise were my two favorites off the standard menu....More

Super-nice husband and wife owner team. Intimate spot. Very attentive service. Traditional French bistro fare. The wine list isn't extensive but offers a few well-priced gems. Good value for the price. Highly recommended.

Feels family run and caring. Had the sweetbreads and friend had escargot. Both dishes rank as best we've had anywhere. Probably less than 20 tables but quiet and intimate setting. Meal started with a fine spinach soup. Then an excellent beet salad with a magical...More
