Definitely worth the value.
I came here on a weekday afternoon, and the restaurant was pretty empty. Basically the hostess is the only waitress here, an Italian mama style service.
I ordered coq au vin, which was a big dish for $13.

Service
Party of 5. Arrival time 7:00p, Sat. (half-full). We ordered a Cheese Plate, Apps & Main Course by 7:30p. The table next to ours arrived after we'd ordered and were not just served, but had finish eating before we??d been served our appetizers. Apps were served at 9:00 (only after we asked for them twice). The only apology, for their sloth-like slow service, came at 8:45?an hour and forty-five minutes after we ordered. So of course, one would expect all the main courses to come out hot?oh, how wrong you would have been, for it was not the case. Two of the five dishes (both being the Bar Steak on the regular menu) were room temperature at best. Maybe it was me but I thought it ludicrous that at 10:00p we would be shown a dessert menu. What I really wanted was a time machine, however, I settled for the check and the door, leaving my companions to deal with the waitress. (In case you??re wondering on a $188.00 pre-tax bill, we left a $27.00 tip?I??m demanding not stingy.)

Food
In my opinion, poor service is no different than over-cooked pasta, there??s no remedy for it. Nonetheless, I??ll try to be fair. The scallops (Sat. special-App.) were cooked perfectly, seared on the ends and soft, flaky and moist in the center. The homemade linguine (Sat. special-Main) was far too soft, even the most amateur of cooks. How do you say ??al dente? in French? Yet, there was a huge glob of uncooked sticky linguine which I removed and set aside. By the way, where was the promised duck confit and spicy sausage which were the reason I ordered the night??s special? All I found were left over scraps of some kind of meat and mushroom?underwhelming at best. Needless to say, I didn??t finish it.

Pros: It's not in Manhattan

Cons: Service was deplorable

I really wanted to like this place, but my spinach and goat cheese omelet was so salty that it was inedible, and the bloody mary was watered down. Le Sigh.

Pros: Nice atmosphere

Cons: brunch was too expensive compared to other places in the area.

Editorial from

The Scene
This brightly colored Williamsburg bistro catches the eye along a drab stretch of Grand Street. The long, narrow space teeters on the edge of cutesy with its perky red and yellow color scheme, French comics…
