    What a wonderful experience! I went with my wife and friend for Happy Hour, and everything was incredible—the cocktails, the tarte flambees, and especially the escargot and foie gras. The owner and the staff were so sweet, and we can’t wait to go back!

    I came here for the first time in 5 years. I was relieved that the menu hadn't changed much. The octopus was delicious.

    The host / waitress was quite rude. She told my friend we didn’t have a reservation (even though I’d confirmed) and made her wait outside. We eventually were seated but the waitress was very rude.

    Loved this for not being a cookie cutter bistro but making a superlative boeuf bourguignon. The basque influence is welcome and it seems way more like a place you’d find on a corner in Biarritz than many other places desperate to evoke Lyon

    Great wine and owners were super nice, but we came on a Sunday at 9pm and were the only people there.

    Absolutely wonderful. Food, drinks, service - all excellent. The chickpea chorizo was so delicious and they serve one of the best French 75s I’ve ever had. Will absolutely be returning!
