I never write a negative review to a restaurant, but this one beat it all. I am romanian and I was hoping for good quality romanian food. Long story short, the food seved here have almost nothing to do with REAL traditional romanian dishes. * Cheap tables clothes from linoleum made you feel in a cheap tavern *the food is hard and almost tasteless *the service is lazy *medium high prices Is a shame for romaian food to be served like this :( I will never go there again. Such a disappointing experience.

I have never written a negative review on a resturaunt before but this place more than deserves it. We went in with my 3 year old son and ordered eggs Benedict, eggs Florentine, 2 orders of french toast and 2 coffes. The food took over 35 minutes to come out. Despite the fact that they were not at all busy, not a single person ever came out to offer refils on our coffee or to tell us why the food was taking so long. When the food finally did come out both orders of French toast were slightly burned, completley dry, hard and flavorless and was exactly like microwaved brick in texture. Not to mention it was dry toast, absolutley no egg dip, which is the entire point of french toast. Both of our egg dishes had hollandaise sauce on them, and the sauce was extremely tart and vinegary and sour. There was also only about 2 tablespoons of the potato side dish on the plates. We decided to let my son eat his order of french toast because he was very hungry and fussy. But we called the waitress over to tell her we did not want the other order and why. We were gonna try to eat our food and eat around the sour sauce. A few minutes later the waitress came back and said that she talked to the manager and he said we would have to pay for both orders of the french toast regardless to what we tought of it becuase we ordered it. We asked to have the manager come over and speak to us directly . When he finally did come over he immediatley said that he sells hundreds of french toasts daily and that the food was fine. He barley would let us speak when we tried to get a word in edge-wise to tell him what the problem was. He just contiuted to argue and talk over us and tell us that it was not his fault that we ordered too much food. He then took our un-touched french toast away but then brought us the bill with it still on there. He never offered to remake our order properly or do anything to make our food right. NOR did he bother to notice that we had not touched either of our plates because we simply could not get past the sour sauce. We paid our bill and left all of the food there. Every Kitchen has an off day and it can be recovered from with good customer service and simply correting the mistake. But the treatment from the manager, and customer service we received in general was absolutley unacceptable. This was our first and last time there. We will never go back nor would we recommend it to anyone!

A bakery which wants to be a restaurant, or a restaurant which wants to be a bakery ? Not clear, so it doesn't do very well either. Tables are covered with plastic, wine selection is 'Chardonay', 'Merlot', 'Cabernet' - no name, no vintage. When we asked for a better wine were offered Malbec, Malbec and Malbec - in all combinations. Maybe it was a good wine, but there were no real wine glasses to match a $50 wine, so we passed ! Food was decent but salads were bad and the dessert bakery products were the typical ‘tourist’ quality. What could have been decent music was completely ruined by bad sound equipment played VERY loud. When we asked to lower volume a little we received an un-polite reply. We asked then to be moved to a table farther away, but were told that it was 'RESERVED'. At departure we passed by a few restaurants on the side streets, which looked much more elegant and intimate but it was too late. A ruined evening !

People flock here for the delicate chocolate desserts and beautiful cakes at amazingly low prices. A huge cinnamon roll is only $1.50 compared to $5 at a similar French bakery. The meals are equally inexpensive and just as delicious. Heavy cream and butter are staples of this kitchen. The ambiance is relaxing under the outdoor umbrella with live music at 9 PM Enjoy people watching and shopping on the boulevard filled with unique designer shops and cafes. Service is excellent, but not rushed. Special coffees, hot tea and wine list are complete.
