We were welcomed by our friendly waitress - who appeared to be genuinely French. Lovely service. As usual the French Onion soup was delicious. Scallops a good size and perfectly seared. We ordered Chateau Briand to share medium rare - again perfectly cooked. Chips were not 'hand-cut' - just thick fries - but were nice. Mushrooms and peppercorn sauce delicious. The Ratatouille was like very strong tomato pasta sauce with small seriously overcooked vegetables in it. As a side dish, not something I wanted to eat and it didn't matter, but would be annoyed if I ordered that specifically. Good traditional Creme Brulee to finish.

Food wasn’t great at all. The only good thing was the snaks (kumara potatoes) but service was great and the place looks awesome.

Hi While nice I was hoping that there would’ve more atmosphere being French and Christmas Eve. The chowder was lovely and fresh but could have been thicker. At times it was a little like heated cream. The duck was dry All in all nice but not at a standard to tell friends not to miss it on a visit. Staff nice.

The service could be far better and more efficient if we could get more attention from the waitress. Food is geat but not so French. The interior decoration of the restaurant is very French. Enjoyed the atmosphere there.

Well, we went for the taste of France night and we found out on that same day that it has been canceled. We were very impatient for this night. It was a very poor customer service. No email saying that it was canceled, we tried to call and staff didn't know anything about this event then I finally got someone saying that since no one booked except my partner and I, it has been canceled. We'll be sure that we won't book again for anything and I will make sure to pass the word along.

My partner and I enjoyed a delicious lunch. Our waitress was lovely too. When we were paying the bill the staff apologized for the waiting time for our meal. We didn't mind waiting as the food was well worth it.

The service was very slow. It took a very long time for our lunch to be served. Then when the food started to come out it all came out one plate at a time over about 10 minutes which was really awkward for us to start eating together. As this was not a sharing menu this is really unusual to serve food in this manner in my opinion. My chicken salad had undercooked chicken and was soaked in dressing. I am glad I didn’t have to pay for my meal as it is very overpriced for what was on the plate. I would not recommend or return.

Excellent service and ambience. The staff was cheerful and explained each item clearly. The cheese platter and seafood chowder was exceptional, the mains were also delicious especially the rib eye and duck leg.

Very memorable experience, for all the right reasons and not a one off, I had dined with my sister in law and her husband 2 months previously and was similarly impressed. My Husband and I had breakfast at Left Bank this morning as well and the breakfast was superb.
