Fodor's Review

Relaxed and upbeat, with bright yellow walls and colorful paintings, this small, crowded neighborhood bistro is French in every regard—starting with the flirty servers. Traditional bistro fare has been replaced with potato-crusted salmon served with grapes and ouzo sauce. Some standards, like braised veal cheeks, remain. The wine is all French, with many available by the glass. The wine bar on the second floor has a menu of small plates such as foie gras in port wine

sauce, grilled trout, and onion-bacon tart. On this level, seating is first-come, first-served, with a smaller menu than the one available to downstairs customers with reservations.

Great French Bistro

We loved this little bistro. It was like being in Paris for the evening. The food, service and location were excellent. Portions are well served. Dessert selection was great. We will definitely be coming back.

It Couldn't Get any Worse

I'm from DC, and had heard good things about this restaurant-either they've changed chefs or owners, but the food, in a word, was TERRIBLE. I actually got a bit sick from this fish dish that was not only mushy, but overly salted, the owners were so upset that they gave us the desserts gratis-the table next to me told the server the same thing-way too salty. My friend's veal was okay, but nothing special. I would not recommend this place, nor would

I ever go back
