Really nice experience! The ambiance and service was excellent !! The scargots were fantastic but my favorite was the creme brûlée with lavender! The coffee, not so good, try to avoid it!

The Cassoulet Was initially what I ordered. The beans were overcooked and tasted like they were in canned sauce. The white sausage tasted a little processed. And my duck was completely overcooked and dry. I give credit to the waiter, he took my plate away...More
