Had a superb dinner tonight. Excellent Coq Au Vin and Moules Frites...simple elegant and so much flavor. This is a must on your to do list. The staff is stellar, including Andrew. Many thanks for such gourmet delight. Well done!

In 1969, when I began at Duke, you couldn’t have imagined a spot like this. Warm, friendly, cheery and outstanding food and wine. We chose three items from the terrific menu. The duck confit and the coq au vin rocked. Really first rate. Loved every minute there,

The food here is amazing. I tried several plates and they were all cooked well and felt authentically French. The wait staff is courteous and attentive. The atmosphere is the only aspect that is not great because the restaurant is small and has a bad echo that makes it hard to carry a conversation.

If it weren't for lack of ambiance, this restaurant would earn a 5-star rating. Best steaks prepared with fine ingredients, great frites like in Belgium, and always a crowd. The best frizee salad around.

I came here with my girlfriends and we had such a great time! Our server was really nice and professional. The presentation of our dishes was nice and the food itself was delicious. I definitely need to return.
