“Very nice French bistro in CWE. Good central location. Particularly nice if it is nice outside and you can eat outdoors. We had excellent service. Able to bring small dog because ate outside. Tables are on the sidewalk outside. Wish they had beer on tap, but only have bottled beer. Good cocktails,” said one review of the restaurant via OpenTable.com.
