nice French food with good ambience

Very good lobster bisque to eat w the soft house bread. Duck leg confit was worth the try, served with thick flavorful mashed potato. Must try the escargots & the pan fried foie gras. Angus rib-eyes steak was not the best although acceptable. Friendly staff, but the car park was difficult to locate. Will return & will try their dessert as we were too full.

Disappointing

To begin with, our reservation, which was booked through hungrygowhere.com was neither confirmed nor valid. But the restaurant was empty so we got a table anyway. We were surprised that prices had gone up by 20% and that could explain why the place was quiet. Food was excellent though overpriced and service was commendable despite the lackthereof.  The wine list however, was nothing short of pathetic, especially for a French brasserie - they ran out of champagne, most wine were not available and the wine that they will serve by the glass, they would not sell by the bottle even though it's on the menu. Very disappointing and unlikely to return. Judging by the state of the brasserie, others probably have the same view.

Good ambience

Despite fairly good reviews, my recent dining experience fell short of expectations. They got one order wrong and my steak was undercooked and had to be sent back to the chef. Having said that, thumbs up for the ambience which was reminiscent of a typical Parisian Brasserie.

Come only if you feel like paying for overpriced food

Ambience is nice. Food is average, but waaaaaaaaay overpriced. You can get much better food at way lower prices at other restaurants in town.

For an example, take a look at the salad I ordered. It's literally three pieces of Romaine lettuce drizzled with some vinaigrette. It cost me $14. I could have done this at home for $2, or paid $14 for a really huge salad with plenty of toppings somewhere.

In short: stay away.

Overrated

We went there for Father's Day lunch. They only had a set menu, but the set menu looks good at first. Good thing was the free flow of fresh oysters and korobuta pate. Everything that follow after was disappointing. The wild mushroom soup had no flavor, the foie gras was prepared with soft boil egg, which I felt that was a waste of foie gras coz the soft boil egg yolk over powered the little bits of foie gras.   The scallops were ok, but again it seems that there were not enough flavor. Beef flank was passable. Dessert was the biggest disappointment. Crepe Suzette is suppose to be a French specialty and yet it failed with a standard like the chef that made it had his first lesson in making crepe.  On the whole, it was too much to pay at $88++ per person for sub-standard French food. I seriously have tasted much better.
