    I tried this venue as the fork rating was good. The atmosphere was lacking, however staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was quite average, yet they tried to offer some dietaries.

    French Restaurants should have fresh baguettes not toasted or reheated stale bread especially when they charge for it. Tartare should also be served with some sort of bread.
