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.

First Time is better than the second

I ate here 2 years ago and couldn't wait to go back. I remembered the food and service were exelent but I was somewhat disappointed this time. The service was still exceptional, never and empty glass or plate on the table but the food was a disappointment. The bread was great, 4 different types to choose from or have all four, the wine was recomended, a Mexican wine and it was wonderful but the main course was awful. I ordered Chilean Sea Bass

and it tasted very fishy, or not fresh, I sent it back and it wasn't a problem. They readily offered me something else but I had lost my appitite. My husband enjoyed his dinner very much, I should have ordered the steak.
