Outstanding service and fantastic food! Their chicken crepes are to die for, and the crepes Suzette dessert is unbelievable. I also had the sauteed mushroom appetizer and the cream of mushroom soup. Both were absolutely top drawer. I only went because of the Groupon, but I will go back several more times on my own nickel.

I am glad we purchased this Groupon. We've seen this place for years, but have never tried it. The four course meal was very good. We had duck pate, lobster bisque and mushroom soup, pork tenderloin and sand dabs. I never would have tried duck pate at its regular price. And for dessert we had crepe suzette and the chocolate cake. Both were excellent. We ate the crepes at the restaurant and took the cake home. Enjoy!

As soon as we walked in they were very welcoming and seated us at a table of our choice. Our server was prompt and attentive. Everyone enjoyed their meals and said that they would definitely come back again. Thank you!

The food was wonderful. We had four people in our group and everyone agreed their meal was delicious. Staff was friendly and helpful, but they were short staffed the evening we were there and our meal took a little over 3 hours to complete which is the reason for 4 instead of 5 st

The place was easy to find and rather quiet for a Friday night. The maitre'd / bartender was very welcoming. He explained how the deal worked and then handed us our menus. I had looked at their menu online and was disappointed to find that the menu in my hands was an abbreviated version; what I had planned on ordering was not available in our deal. Drinks were an extra cost (not part of deal). Within the deal we shared an appetizer, had a soup or salad (each), and for each an entire. Then we shared a dessert. I ordered another dessert (extra cost). The food was pretty good, rich, buttery, in the French style. I was a bit disappointed in the limitations of the deal -- something I was not aware of when I purchased the groupon.
