I was more than pleasantly surprised at this cozy French bistro. While the escargots and cote de bouef were good, the bouillabaisse was outstanding, probably the best I've had. The saffron broth was so rich and the seafood was perfect. The cassoulet was also tremendous, a great winter dish. The rabbit with pappardelle was equally outstanding. The wine list boasts a good amount of variety at affordable prices ($40-60) although I found the red wine by the glass to be a bit flat. Their cheese plate of 6 had several of my absolute favorites. So well curated. Overall the service was friendly, although a bit on the slower side, but the food more than makes up for it.

Roast duck - perfect. Love the spatzle and cabbage replacing the wild rice. The music was perfect too. Great dinner - great fun. Thanks

This place is such a sweetheart. Unassuming and elegant, from the little bowls of baguette to the soft-spoken waiters. Have the bouillabaisse and steak frites. Linger there.

Bouillabaisse is unreal and any fish special

In my opinion, this is the best French bistro in Chicago. Understand that it is a bistro, not aspiring to be a multi star restaurant, but presenting country fare classics with some modern flourishes. The cooking is deft, reliable, and often imaginative. The room is charming, small, lively, and crowded, just like so many bistros in Paris.

An intimate brasserie with good food and wine. One of my favorite places in Chicago.

I loved this place, it has the best foie gras on Earth, I had other stuff, but I simply cannot forget the foie gras! A delicacy for all your senses. It came with a sweet sauce and arugula.

Love the Restaurant and food. Hate the lack of manners on phone. Please be more thoughtful when speaking to others and learn how to say please and thank you!
