Excellent meal, good service - consistently an excellent meal, with subtle flavoring and complex but delicious dishes. The food generally is light, which is ideal before a show at one of the nearby theatres. The service was good, though seemed a little rushed. Ambiance is fine, a nice setting but crowded dining room. Would definitely go again.

Our go-to for French-inspired cuisine in the East Bay! Always fresh ingredients. Always delicious dishes with lots of options. Always great wine list and suggestions. Always friendly and superb service. Our most recent visit (last night) was on "Wine Wednesday", with an offer of comparison 2021 & 2022 vintages of French Burgundy tasting from the same winery. Super fun and delicious! there was live harp music in the outdoor garden to boot! Definitely take home the par-baked baguettes... we buy several, wrap and freeze them for later enjoyment. 😀🇫🇷

The restaurant had a grown and sexy vibe. There was mood lighting and the atmosphere was intimate. The service was excellent, as was the food. The cocktails were good. I had a Kentucky mule, which was really tasty. For starters, we had the tuna tartare and the french fries and it was all high-quality ingredients and delicious. For my entrée, I had the vegetable risotto which I highly recommend. It had mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, and spinach, and it was absolutely delicious. I will definitely be returning and I highly recommend this restaurant.
