Fodor's Review

If heaven had a restaurant, this would be it. Arched bay windows, checkered marble floors, live jazz, and exquisite garden views create the backdrop for this ideal spot for couples. The 14 chestnut tables surround a sunken gazebo where long-stemmed orchids bloom under glass. The restaurant doubles as a gallery where paintings by local artists are propped on easels, and, each Friday and Saturday from 7 to 10 pm, an artist paints while you dine. The dishes here—created

by French chef Henri Charvet—are served beneath silver domes by pleasant tuxedoed waiters. The menu changes every four months, but it is always comprised of French-Mediterranean cuisine, from fresh tuna and sea scallops to seared duck and roasted lamb. As a keepsake, guests are presented with a box of French truffles and elegant recipe cards recapping the bill of fare. The dress code is elegant, reservations are recommended, and children are not allowed. Since this restaurant is rather intimate, expect quality service, meaning that some people might feel uncomfortable being watched by attentive waiters.
