Arrival - warmly greeted in French (no less) the minute we arrived. We were escorted to our table and our comfort were assured before they presented the menu. This extra care to ensure our comfort was just the start to a great dining experience.

Ambience - decorated in plush Continental style with fresh flowers on every table; warm red hues to my preference rather than pastels.

Service - very attentive; courteous; friendly yet professional. No doubt that the waiting staff deserved every penny of the 20% tip for the impeccable service.

Food - everything was fantastic from the Chef's welcome appetizer to dessert.

Exit - We were graciously thanked for our patronage (nothing too ostentatious or embarassing) and my wife received a lemon loaf as a parting gift which we really appreciated. We had in mind to get of of those from their bakery across the street.

Favorite Dish: Florida Shrimp, Baby Squid and Cape Cod Sea Scallop - the seafood were fresh and done just right to retain its ocean freshness.

Tuna Sashimi on a bed of shaved fennel - the tuna sashimi was so fresh and tender it almost melted in my mouth.

Address: 120 West Broadway, NYC
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Being tourists, we took the subway from Times Square (where our hotel was located) and alighted at Chambers Street station. Once out of the station, it was an easy 5-min stroll along Broadway to the restaurant.
