Service
 
Chef-owner John Harris "can flat-out cook" as evidenced by the refined French fare that "sweeps you off your feet" at his "elegant" Uptown bistro staffed by a crew that "aims to please" ; the "small" , "high-ceilinged dining room" "can become loud" , so some recommend grabbing one of the "cool cocktails" and dining on the patio.

Outstanding execution on ingredients just slightly outside the NOLA norm. The Squab was a particular highlight, as were the desserts. The service was also excellent on a slightly slow Monday night. Go with full confidence, order something you've never had.

Amazing ambiance and food made up for mediocre service (waiter forgot to put our order in). We sat in a quiet spot on the upper porch, surrounded by string lights and trees. Everything we had was fantastic: oysters, crudo, lamb shoulder, and duck breast. We finished it off with the goat cheese and lavender honey dessert.The star was definitely the lamb shoulder.

A perfect French Bistro on Magazine at far end of the Garden district. The large shrimp in lemon and better were delicious. The Muscovy duck perfectly cooked with a tasty glaze. . . Oh, yummy! The recommended white wine was perfect with the entire meal though I wish I had been in the mood for another glass before my duck arrived. A red would have been even better. The thick chocolate mousse was dense and rich and was a perfect pairing with the grapefruit sorbet. I will definitely be doing that desert for company soon. Great experience and ambiance. You'll think you are in Paris. Bon appetit.
