"Amazing food, a must-try! Went there with my boss and coworkers for lunch, and I was blown away by quick, friendly service. This is the type of restaurant customers order and pay first, food comes with the number given to you. The decor of this restaurant is fun and creatively French! Wooden wine boxes were made into a wall decoration, a great sound absorption as well. Seating is casual to fit the downtown hush-hush working environment. The service was perfect, food was delicious! You'll love this one guaranteed." - Lexter266, TripAdvisor.
