My partner and I go to this European style restaurant often, partly because it's close to home, but more because of the friendly staff and consistently great food. It's not a "scene" type of place, but has it's own simple, even romantic charm. Our favorites include chicken stuffed with goat cheese, the warm salad, Gorgonzola mashed potatoes, bouillabaisse, sole with couscous and of course the bread. My favorite dessert is the pear tart, but they've replaced it with a strawberry version, which others seem to like, but I hope the pear tart makes a comeback. Definitely agree with others who suggest the specials should change more often. They're always the same. But luckily there are so many great choices on the regular menu, I always find something new to try. We've tried the Los Feliz location, but like the La Brea one better. It's quieter and seems friendlier.
