Amazing… let me say that again amazing french cuisine. For you healthy foodies, they also have a gluten-free menu which my date was very pumped about.
Food: Drool-inducing. No really. After we had the escargots, we actually had them bring us an order of just the mushrooms in the lemon, garlic butter sauce. It appears we were the first to ever ask for that (maybe they will call it the K Word special… no? Oh.) The entrees didn’t disappoint either my seared sea scallops were divine.
Literally the whole night, my date kept saying “Wow! Wow! Wow!” and she wasn’t even talking about me for most of them. *POW*
Service: From the host to the bartender to the wait service to the dishwasher, everyone was great (No, I don’t really know if the dishwasher was great but I’m sure they are). Extremely attentive, personable, accommodating. This was the best service I have received in a quite a long time.
Environment: You feel like you are in a well-kept secret. The decor is not imposing and welcomes an intimate conversation. This is not a place for the kiddies (even though there was one or two children with their families). It is definitely perfect for date night, or even dinner with the girls. And yes they are very LGBT friendly – or at they least they were to these two Ls.
What to Wear: No explicit dress code but it’s always nice to turn it up a notch. If you are going to be casual chic, no worries there is outside seating. (Yes I put you outside ha!)
Overall: Super Strong 4.5
Would I go again?: If I’m nice maybe I’ll get taken back… If I’m naughty I guess I will take myself back.
A couple of tips:
1. Make sure to call (or go on opentable) for a reservation. All the foodies of Jacksonville know about this place so you might be left in the cold if you try to walk in without one.
2. Tell them how you feel. They have a strong presence on Facebook and Twitter. You can also get info, see the menus and all that good stuff on their website.
