Fodor's Review

The owners have wisely preserved the bistro's traditional spirit while brightening the decor and adding chic touches such as valet parking and a heated terrace. The menu still consists mainly of Lyonnais classics, though now you'll find some of these grouped into color-theme menus such as "red" (beet salad, coq au vin, and Quincy wine) or "yellow" (Swiss chard gratin, pike-perch in beurre blanc sauce with steamed potatoes, and Mâcon wine). Old regulars keep coming back, including the former owners, who live upstairs.
