I'm torn. The vibe feels authentically French from the Chef to his table of French speaking buddies that showed up shortly after our arrival, drinking wine and laughing. However, the food at lunch is really pricey for what you get. A bowl of French onion soup for $7, while light and natural tasting, is unsatisfying. It tasted like something I could easily whip up in 10 minutes at home. Wine by the glass is $9 , sandwiches and savory crepes are around $14 each and not as remarkable as they should be for that price.
The restaurant, while cheery with yellow walls, lots of natural light and wooden tables is in desperate need of a paint job as evidenced by the cracks and discoloration all over the place and the bathrooms are in a horrifying state. I have only been here once and I know it has received very good reviews from others, but I was not impressed. I hate to say Fugheddaboutit! to any local business, but for the money the food across the street at Le Gourmand is better.
The service on the other hand, was very good.
