i love the cozy romantic atmosphere, maybe because my date was a sweet romantic Frenchman. Tthe host greeted us in French and promptly showed us to a secluded corner table where the candles where lit. The wait staff was attentive. For appetizers the blue cheese and goat cheese were very flavorful. I had the hangar steak, it was very tasty and cooked the way I asked. My date sat beside me with the other table and the waiter was sensitive enough to put his plate in front of him instead of across from me so we could sit beside each other, actually we used two tables instead of one! We had to hunt down the waitress later for the water and bill because it became busy later and it was hard to catch her eye because there were too many people standing in blocking the view, but she was very attentive during the rest of the evening. Overall, I had a wonderful experience, the atmosphere was definitely romantic, the food was excellent, I would come back again (maybe on an anniversary). I'm regretful at the bad reviews because I had an amazing experience, it was probably the company I kept that contributed to this experience too (meaning my incredibly romantic swashbuckling date) I would highly recommend it for dates or group outings. Although my date said the decor wasn't typical of a French Bistro, I still liked it, he said the food was excellent so it must have been good coming from a Frenchman. I give it five stars.
