    What's not to like?

    The kitchen is open all night, the service is friendly, the owner has crazy eclectic taste in music, the wine list is excellent, the food is solid, and the price is right. No complaints here.

    This restaurant is absolutely amazing. Went out for dinner and was quite impressed. The escargot appetizer was a serving of 6 and was well cooked. I ordered the duck breast and had it cooked in a medium manner. I can honestly say it was the best duck I have ever ate. The sauce was terrific and the meat was tender and full of juice. The dessert was certainly a pleasure as well. We ordered the exotic caramel, vanilla ice cream with roasted nuts. Each course we ordered was cooked to perfection and was a delight to eat. The only thing that I didn't like was the pricing. The wines are a bit over priced, but then again what restaurant doesn't overprice the booze... The staff is well trained and do everything possible to make your meal as pleasant as possible without even having to ask. Overall, if a $100-140 dinner fits your budget, I would recommend this place without any hesitation!

    better not

    Food: mediocre. Wine: expensive for what they are Service: depends on a day. Music: extremly loud and inconsistent in genres. Overall impression: there are better places. Don't spend your money on some average midtown bar with haughty service.

    Always a wonderful time!

    Dinner or even late afternoon after a day of shopping/work I always can count on great food and wine. Very often just have the cheese and cold meats platters (though I miss the old selection). The mussels are my favorite but also love their burger and authentic french fries. The staff is attentive but not obtrusive. Perhaps the reviewer who thought the staff was rude is not used to this type service.

    Good late night Saturday

    I've lived in this neighborhood for a while and I've walked passed this place a bunch of times. The whole front of the restaurant opens up to the sidewalk so its a great place to go when it's nice out. There always seems to be a good crowd and the atmosphere is fun. My girlfriend and I went there for brunch one day and my food was righteous. Happened upon it again on a Saturday night. The service was great. The whole staff was courteous and friendly. Goin back for sure.

    rude and arrogant service

    Stopped by for a late night drink and had the chance to experience the following: incompetent service (server could not "talk about" their beer selection, being eyed by the obnoxious manager, overall sickening atmosphere of patronizing recent french transplants in NYC. Regrettable.
