Very homey, cozy, French restaurant where you can tell the regulars from the not. My large party of 7 was in the "not" section - but we had great service, an attentive waitress (she was such a dear), even though I know we were a big group. The place is cramped but the waitstaff were pros at navigating the tiny spaces and making at all work for us. The clientele is a bit on the older side, but our little spirited group didn't seem to bother them.

The food was good, staple French. Nothing that blew me out of the water, but definitely a good in the tummy kind of meal. I had the veal scallopini, but we also sampled the beef stew, hangar steak, scallops, and dover sole. My friends enjoyed the soups and, of course, the baguettes. The wine was also standard, staple, French. Can't really go wrong here.

Hands down though - the best part of the meal was the Chocolate Souffle for two. Yes, its 18$. Yes it looks huge. (My table split it among 6) but I could have eaten 4 of those big boys on my own. Light as air, creamy and smooth, rich yet delicate! I can go on forever. Fantastic.

I'll be back - even if only for souffle.

SCRUPTIOUS FOOD MOUTHWATERING..... Everything I have ever eaten there or any guest I have ever had loves the restaurant. My only regret is that I didn't find this place until 10 years ago on a recommendation by my neighbor that I go there for my birthday. I had a great time and enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, the waitors and staff. The owners are particularly fun loving frenchmen with impecable taste especially in wine.
They have a very nice wine list at reasonable prices to boot!

TRY IT YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!!

Amazing food, great service, ambiance to match: ladies and gentlemen this is the genuine article!
It's been around for more than 30 years and we will keep coming back as long as the souffle is on the menu.

La vie en rose is definitely the feeling you get when you dine here. Don't miss it!

My boyfriend and I used to go to this restaurant and we always loved it. However, our last visit was horrible and disturbing. Not only was the service slow and inattentive, but I ended up discovering that they should be inspected by the Board of Health. When we ordered our Chocolate Souffle and asked the waitress to cut it in half for us, she returned with our dessert and my boyfriend's portion had a strand of black hair about 4 inches long stuck in the dessert. We called over the manager, who sat down at our table and began to try to explain that "these things happen". At first he was somewhat polite but then he began to tell us stories of his experiences in other restaurants -how he broke his crown on something foreign in soup and how he found a used band-aid in his meal. He took the hair and said that there was nothing he could do because accidents happen. After we told him that it was unacceptable he walked away and then returned a few moments later. He told us that he checked with his staff and that no one had hair that matched the one found in the dessert and that it probably was mine! I HAVE BLONDE HAIR; NOT BLACK. IF THE MANAGER THINKS IT IS OK TO FIND HAIR, BAND-AIDS, ETC IN FOOD, THIS PLACE SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN. I CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT KIND OF DIRTY KITCHEN THIS PLACE OPERATES. IT GIVES ME THE CREEPS.

This is the worst French meal I've ever had.
The fois gras "special" was cold, pre-packaged mousse. After insinuating that I might not be able to afford a certain entre, the maitre d' brought me a strip steak instead of the filet I ordered. And it was incredibly expensive.

Mixed feelings about this restaurant: atmosphere, service are first rate- if you want to speak french go ahead because the wait staff are all french. The escargot was very good, the salad was average at best. Our entrees were 'okay' but the chicken breast was a little dry which to me is a bit of a sin for a good restaurant, especially french. My veal was good but nothing exciting. The desert was a type of 'flan' that was average at best. The martini was very good and the house wine was was nothing to get excited about. Lots of locals at this place. If you want chic or nouveau- go elsewhere. If you like conventional/standard french food you will probably be satisfied with this restaurant.

Pris fixe is the best bet - four courses for under $30. But if you're a group of four or more stick to the standard menu and order the souffle (one of each to share) and you'll be more than pleased.

The house wine is a good bet, too.
