Attended as a final dinner after 2 weeks in Italy and France, in celebration of our 25th anniversary, and traveling with my wife's parents. First, the ambience was not as formal as many 2 star restaurants we’ve been to. That’s a positive, for the most...More

No the waiters here don't slap ya on the back and ask about your family. Their attention to detail is wonderful and a 6 course dejeuner will take you 2+ hours to enjoy. We loved the dining room change as it gave us a chance...More

Ok, the meal was one of the most extraordinary of my life. Truly inspiring. Combinations of flavors and textures I'd never encountered. It's definitely worth a visit for the meal. But everything else...omg...super tacky decor, like a cheap neighborhood sushi joint. Uncomfortable chairs. Very mediocre...More

This meal was absolutely the low point of our vacation to France. The food was unimaginative and to the point of being bland. The flavors were flat and repetative The service was horrible. They did not even refill water glasses. They had zero command of...More

Save your money. It was nearly impossible to find the place or to find the nearest parking. The food was depressingly bad, swimming in oil at dinner and swimming in grease at breakfast. We were so exhausted by dinner time (trying to find the place)...More

A special dining experience! Chef Rabanel did not disappoint! From the moment we walked in we were treated like royalty! The Maitre'd welcomed us, showed us around and explained the order of service for the evening. We went on a warm, stormy night, which made...More

we had high hopes but no....we were there for dinner, which started in a little room with a huge chunk of bread which was nice but not exactly what you need to whet the appetite, more to dull it. The other appetisers were interesting, and...More

The web site is just a "musical interlude". Is there any way to reserve outside of calling France? I want to reserve for July 4 or July 5. Thanks!

The interlude musical last only a few seconds, later it stops and you can make your reservation. Otherwise you click twice to stop it. Unfortunately, Tripadvisor forbids us to communicate you our e-mail address.
