I haven’t been here in five or six years and I immediately noticed when we got here that they updated the decor and it looks great inside. We had the filet mignon, duck a l’orange, mussels, scampi in tarragon butter and crème brûlée for dessert. Our server Juan was lovely and we will back soon. Very impressed by how consistently good this place has been for the last 53 years.
The place is very small and smells, and then the manager who served us was extremely rude and unprofessional, as he was bragging about himself nonstop about his trips to France and he speaks the language, oh well we could careless….however he was rude about us trying to modify the food as everything on the menu was very greasy and meat , I mean people want to eat whatever they like not what this this person wants you to…also very expensive meals for nothing , it’s not worth it at all….first time and it’s last time, never going back there ever!!!!!! I love the perch in downtown Los Angeles on rooftop, it’s perfect there
What a pretty restaurant! We ate there with French friends so we were a bit anxious that they would like our recommendation. They liked it very much and said a traditional French menu was offered there. We enjoyed escargot, a salad, and French onion soup for starters. My husband and I enjoyed crispy duck with a medley of vegetables. Depending on how hungry you are, the duck portion is ample and can be shared. Our friends had scallops and a delicate white fish. To finish, we had one grand marnier soufflé and a chocolate soufflé. Of course, there was wine. The service was pleasant. This is not a meal for a dieter but why go to a French restaurant if you aren’t there to enjoy!!!
A real hidden gem in the valley. I have been to all French bistros in the valley and this is easily in my top two or three. Being that there are six that I know of it really is better than most. I love how it’s tucked just off Ventura Blvd so parking is easier and it feels more like a neighborhood restaurant that way. It’s small on the inside but the seating is really laid out well with lots of different booths and seating options. The menu is small but has a lot of great options. Tonight however I chose solely from the specials menu. I started off with the Bone Marrow appetizer and it was fantastic. The gravy they put on top of it really added to the flavor and made me want to order another. Honestly it was one of the better bone marrow appetizers I have had in town. For my entrée I chose the special for the night the Pacific Dory Grenobloise. Delicious sauce which I’ve had before, with one of my favorite fishes: the John Dory. It was cooked perfectly and was a great sized portion. Finally for dessert I topped it off with a Grand Marnier Soufflé and loved it. It was done perfectly and better than a lot of others I have had in town being that this is my favorite dessert so I order it as often as I can. Overall a fantastic meal in a very casual but classy environment. I would recommend to anyone dining in the valley, any fan of French bistros, or anyone looking for a great meal.
First time having french food and it was delish! Had the lobster ravioli and frog legs. Loved both of the dishes. The new manager Michael was a great host and waiter. He was very attentive and friendly. Even gave my husband and I a glass of champagne on the house for looking so dressed up. Will def go back again!
