I had the vegetable lasagna. It was a large portion but very bland in taste. I hear the Perch is very good but I did not try. The alcoholic drinks are on the pricey side. The wait staff is fantastic.

We have always had a great evening there and have always been treated very kindly and respectfully. The food is great and Crystal is always our favorite waitress! Our New Year will be rang in there!

So disappointing. Slow service, out of food, had to request the simplest of items. Bland food which no amount of seasoning would have helped. Dirty tables around us....This place could benefit from having a restaurant intervention. And sadly, this place needs a really good scrubbing...(check the ceiling vents...UGH!)

Susan, I see that your review is from about a year ago, but we're newly active on Google, and your thoughts are still applicable and important to us. For 85 years, we've enjoyed bringing French and Italian dishes to the people of Monroe. With that, it's extremely important that we hold ourselves to a high standard of service, cleanliness, and quality of food. I'm not sure if you've been back in since your review, but we would great appreciate the chance to redeem ourselves. Sincerely, Darlene, General Manager

Came here for our first anniversary and glad we did. We had a great time and our waitress was awesome. Very clean, food was a little bland but cooked to perfection. Atmosphere was relaxed and quiet. We enjoyed this place.

Get a 1 because I could not figure out 1/2 star. Waited 1.5 hours NEVER received main dish watched 2 tables sat after us served meals. Left 5 on table for appetizer and left. Never had been treated so poorly to point I felt need to write review before
Response from the owner - 12 months ago
Oh wow, Matthew -- this definitely isn't what we like to see. I'm so sorry that you left here upset. Customer service is incredibly important to us, and it's very disappointing that you left here feeling otherwise. I completely understand how frustrating it must have been, and it's unfortunate that this was your experience. As it does not represent us at all. I really hope you'll give us another shot in the future -- we can do so much better. All the best, Darlene, General Manager
