The escargot didn't disappoint. Server was friendly and the entire experience was great. Don't miss the scallops they were seared to perfection, but not overcooked inside.

Service was haphazard on a slow night. The food was quite good - especially the bone marrow - the chateaubriand - and the desserts. Fries were soggy. Duck pate was so -so. The chef is into it and sociable. Some interesting wines.

I attended a party held here last night. I don't usually write bad reviews unless it's really bad. This was really bad. Service at the bar was rude and slow. They obviously didn't have enough people working for the size of the party. When it...More
