I had a horrific experience at this restaurant. I had never been there before. The food and service were great BUT, when I attempted to pay for the bill, the server came back and stated that there was an error on the card and that he could not process it. I asked, in front of my guests, if I would be charged and he stated that HE REVERSED THE ERROR. I handed him a second card and he came back and said there was a problem. He said he would have another person try it. I walked to the bar to watch her attempt and she stated that the first card was declined and that it went through on the second card. This was all stated loudly in front of customers. When I got home, I contacted both banks. The first bank stated the three charges were attempted and immediately reversed. On the fourth attempt, the bank declined the charge believing it to be fraudulent. The second bank stated that there were FIVE pending charges for the same amount. When I called to speak to a manager, I was met with indifference and abruptness. Despite the quality of the food, because of the shame and embarrassment this caused me, I WILL NEVER VISIT THIS ESTABLISHMENT AGAIN.

Very disappointed by the Choucroute. The sauerkraut was old and reheated, 2 or 3 very little pieces of pork looking old too, a lot of regular not tasty sausages. Don't order it! Saved by the dessert: a dark chocolate mousse cake.

Great ambiance, good drinks. Food less than they should be - they could execute the dishes much better. Desserts to die for. Machine made espresso not as good as a barista made brew. Great place that ought to do a better job. Good place for president or post theater (the Forrest Theater is two doors away. Convenient parking garages.

What a lovely little cafe! Seating was fast, we chose to sit outside. It was a gorgeous evening, cool and crisp; a perfect night for a latte. Had the soup of the day (carrot), latte, and bread pudding. The bread pudding must have been about 2 lbs! The servings are HUGE!! I mean, look at this latte! The neighborhood is quiet. What a nice relaxing end to our day. Highly recommended.
