This is the second time I've gone to this fantastic bistro and I'm glad to see that it has lost absolutely none of it's charm. While the food is not fancy the dishes fresh, delicious and generous. The space is noisy but in a fun way that means that it's still a great place to have dinner with your partner or by yourself. The service is friendly in a very genuine way which means the wine pours are not measured to the millimetre but instead are likely to be topped up when the bottle is nearly finished. There are no reservations so there might be a bit of a wait for a table but it's very much worth it and you can have a drink while you wait for your name to come up.

Close to Davies Hall for brunch before matinees. Nicoise Salad had so much ahi, I could not eat all of it. People are jammed into tiny spaces and it is very noisy so not recommended for older people or any one wanting an intimate experience.

It was a wonderful surprise to find this restaurant for us! The food was excellent, prices were good . It has a very comfortable atmosphere with a friendly service. Finding a parking spot outside is not that difficult. Our overall experience was very positive

While traveling in San Francisco we joined a friend at this quaint French restaurant. The bartender is truly a sweetheart and very French! The French onion soup is classic. The endive salad is delicious but probably best shared for two. Great spot to drop by and have a casual lunch with some nice views.
