We visited on a weekday evening for a later dinner. The atmosphere was not exactly what I expected but it was very nice. Very comfortable seating.

I ordered the Crab Souffle, which needed to be ordered in advance. If you are not familiar with ordering souffles they take time to make so if you are hungry order right away. I also ordered the Raspberry souffle. It was absolutely amazing.

I will definitely be going back.

Lunched here with my daughter and was delighted with the decor and charming atmosphere of the place-- Nice linens and furnishings-- hand soap in the bathroom takes one back to the French countryside. We had the Marshmallow Soup. The goat cheese souffle pieces were so light-- they almost didn't register on the palate. The soup was tasty. We shared the truffle infused mushroom souffle and the French baguettes sandwich. The souffle was savory and wonderful. We also shared the Bananas Foster Souffle for dessert. It was sweet and rich and a perfect finale to a charming lunch hour. We wish we could have complimented the meal with a Wine Flight--- but didn't feel we had that much time to enjoy. Next time we'll add that to our dining experience.

First the pluses: Our waitress was very friendly and helped us make our selections as this was our first visit to the restaurant. We ordered 2 savory soufflés to share and 1 dessert soufflé to also share. The cauliflower and Brie soufflé was outstanding. Rich and creamy. Our mushroom soufflé was light and airy but didn't have as much flavor. We choose the manier soufflé for dessert. It was hot and oh so good!! On the negative side, since we were splitting all the soufflés our waitress should have brought us some extra plates to make them easier to divide and eat. She knew we were sharing because we told her. We each ordered coffee with our dessert and had to ask for spoons to stir in the cream. Also, my friend's coffee cup was stained with lipstick around the edge. Inexcusable error. I will try the restaurant again as it is a very pleasant place to have lunch, although on the pricy side. 3 soufflés, 1 ice tea, 1 glass of wine and 2 coffees: over $80.00

Service varies in quality among waiters but overall attentive. The soufflés are perfectly cooked but deserve a bit more flavor. Onion soup is remarquable and bread very French.

The place was everything we expected and more! The food was amazing, our server (Grace) was so nice and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere was light and relaxing. We were in from out of town and wanted something nice and different but not too out there. Well, this place hit the nail on the head there, and with a fabulous wine selection to boot! Oh, and definitely order the Chariot de fromage; picking our cheeses was pretty cool :D
