Lovely restaurant with very accommodating staff. Nice touch with blankets for guests on the deck. The business owner was engaging with guests and checking in to ensure all was good. I had The lamb chop entree that was amazing. Chef was accommodating for my food allergy.

Beautiful Bistro with amazing atmosphere. Service was excellent. A wonderful place to take a date for a intimate dinner. Good wine choices but recommend add a Merlot to the selection. Lamb was delicious but a little salty. Steak was perfect as were the wonderful crab cakes. It was a very enjoyable evening. Will go again when back in Tacoma

Wonderful food! We shared the crab cake appetizer & warm bread basket with a delicious French Chardonnay. Our entrees were Chicken Francese with penne pasta and Chicken & Brie on baguette with carmelized onions and fig jam - ever so tasty. Finished up with a shared triple chocolate cake that was soooo yummy. Will definitely be back as food & service was excellent!

A friend and I had a weekday reservation for dinner. The staff was accommodating when we ran late and called to let them know. The service was high rate. Ambience was wonderful. We sat on the back patio overlooking the water. The food was excellent. Would most definitely recommend.

What a wonderful spot, the food, service, and ambiance were excellent. The chair I was sitting in seemed to have lost some of it's firmness. I felt like I was sitting very low reaching up to the table. I weigh about 150, so I don't think it was me. :). I will go back and take my husband. The server also told us that their brunch is excellent, we heard that also elsewhere.

We really loved our meal and the restaurant overall. I would say the beef Bourguignon soup was really flavorful but may be a little too salty… My chicken françese (their spelling) was awesome my husband loved the mushroom risotto. The ambience was lovely on the patio especially as the sun set. Service was great but I would suggest a couple lessons about wine pouring for the servers. We brought our own fairly fancy bottle. Should’ve been open to breathe. Glasses were brought but early and were mismatched. Wine poured and dripping down bottle and onto table. Just basics all servers should know. But we loved everything overall and will be back for sure.!! And will recommend to friends!!

We had a salad which was wonderful, but the Halibut was overcooked and dry...ug. Our other 2 guest seemed to enjoy the items they ordered.
