Loved this restaurant that had some pretty amazing French inspired dishes. Lots of bistro classics like the mules e frites and the Trout Amandine. Really good hamburgers and steak frites. We got some really friendly service and enjoyed the wines on the list.

Authentic French in quality, quantity and flavor-we agreed it was our best meal in Alabama, just more expensive than expected. $107 for 3 entrees, 2 desserts and 1 glass of wine. Great service, fast kitchen and nice atmosphere.
