Good food, great service – Went in there on a Sunday for brunch. We were seated, and when our server came, he apologized for the delay (which we had not noticed) - -apparently the server who was supposed to have that section did not start until later. He was very, very nice, made good suggestions regarding which mimosa to get, making sure the child in the party would be okay with whipped cream on her hot chocolate, etc.
The food came and was very good - my friend goes there for brunch and loves it. It seems pricey until you see the portion (and consider that it is French food). I got the chicken artichoke crepes, which I really was enjoying. Into the second one I noticed...a hair. Well, that killed my appetite and I was disappointed because it was so tasty. But these things happen, no matter how hard people try for them not to. I stopped eating and showed it to our server, who got this look on his face of genuine concern - he was almost more grossed out about it than I was. He took it to the sous chef, and returned quickly, apologizing for it and telling me they were taking care of my lunch.
That is a test of a good server, good management, and a good restaurant, in my opinion - what happens when something goes wrong. They took care of things beautifully. I would definitely go there again.
