    I like this place quite a lot, actually, despite the fact that it isn't very "French". They go for that French atmosphere, but there aren't a lot of French dishes on the menu. The food is pretty good, anyway, and the desserts are YUM. Service...well, it depends on the night. I've had excellent service, but most often it's mediocre bordering on lacking. If you're in Lincoln Park, give it a try. At the very least, have some creme brulee and a coffee. You'll be pretty happy.

    I Ate:

    • Creme Brulee: rich and tasty! ($7)
