Pros: Muscles were divine

This place isn't cheap, but the food is terrfic and you can't beat the atmosphere (Belden--like a little slice of Europe--very romantic!) They have some great meals, especially the appetizers and seafood. A bad place to be on a diet!

Pros: Delicious mussels and pomme frites, great ambiance

Cons: Service can be dissapointing

I had the Mussels Provencale and Bouillabaisse. The food is too salty and the quality of seafood is sub-par! We also had to wait over half an hour from when we finished our appetizer until we got our entrees.\r

DISAPPOINTING! Our waiter pretty much ignored the five of us in our group for the single women at the next booth. My ahi tuna was to be cooked rare, but came back well-done. I would have sent it back but could never find our waiter.

The food is actually good! The service and really more the attitude sucks. They treat you like you're a dumb 'americain!' I speak fluent french and I felt much like a 'tourist' in this place than a place I'd call a favorite in my city.

A fun, different little place in charming Belden Pl. Try to sit outside, and definitely go for the classic moules et frites! Fun to sit at the bar, too, and chat with the waiters and bartenders.

Yeah, the mussels are fantastic - and so are those fries - but it's their desserts that blow me away. The lemon tarte they have here occasionally is probably the best dessert I've ever eaten.
