Ate dinner here and had a take out lunch. It is fine dinning and the service is excellent. The french onion soup was flavorful and the quiche was a whole personal sized quiche. For me it was enough for two days.

We ate croque-monsieur and a roast beef sandwich for lunch. The croque-monsieur is fabulous!! For dessert we had crème brûlée and éclair! Wonderful! We'll come back soon for sure!
