Delicious food and excellent service. They are known for their hamburger although I have never had it. We brought an out of town friend here who said the restaurant reminded her of one of her favorite restaurants in Paris. From her that is quite a compliment. Seating is limited. Doors open at 4:30.

This is an example of a perfect meal. My girlfriend and I were skeptical on going here because of the mixed opinions we received from friends. We decided to give it a go. I ordered the hamburger fonfon, I read an article stating this is rated one of the best burgers in Alabama so of course I had to try it, it was fantastic. There was a lot of flavor and the burger was still juicy, wasn't dry or overcooked. My girlfriend ordered the trout with brown butter, it was phenomenal. It had a perfect crust on the outside, the sauce was outstanding as well. The only down-side to this experience was the hour wait for a table but, I highly recommend this place for a good eat, or date night.

My favorite restaurant in Birmingham because it is absolutely the best in town! Fantastic cocktails and a menu of simple, classic French Bistro-style fare. Service is absolutely the best and the prices are incredibly reasonable. Probably also the best value for a meal in this city. This should be at the top of any “must do list” for Birmingham.
