I had learned about this place here on City Search and had dinner there the other night. The place was quite charming, a French bistro, tucked in busy Lexington Avenue. I had never been there before and am not sure if that night was just an isolated incident because this restaurant has certainly been getting a lot of praises. However, I wasn't very satisfied with my meal. The duck was too tough and was quite thrown off (if I had read their wine list correctly) that they charged $60 for a garden variety bottle of Louis Jadot Bourgogne which is $20 in a wine store. I understand restaurants mark up their prices but this was just way too much. I also don't mind paying a lot money for wine but the selections really have to wow me. The service was fast, in fact, too fast for a French restaurant and no it's not like being in Paris at all. Even though most of the friendly wait staff spoke French but then that is not enough to be impressive. Yes, they serve authentic French cuisine but it is not executed very well. For people to pay top $$$ for this place they have to sharpen their basic culinary and presentation skills.
Pros: Charming nook in Lex Ave, friendly waitstaff
Cons: Mediocre food, overpriced wines, rushed service
