Zagat 2013 Review: "Magnificent" French-American fare by chef-owner Didier Poirier keeps "longtime customers" coming back to this "quaint" Craftsman cottage in Downtown Ventura that's "peaceful" and "intimate" with seating by the fireplace and "friendly" service
Zagat 2012 Review: Francophiles get their fix at this brasserie in Ventura where charming chef-owner Didier Poirier plates traditional, satisfying French-American fare in a beautiful century-old Craftsman house with romantic country décor.
Zagat 2011 Review: It's like a "journey to the French countryside without the airfare" at this cute Ventura brasserie situated in a "historic home on the hillside" and overseen by a "skilled" chef/owner Didier Poirier, who uses "high quality" ingredients in his "well-priced French American offerings". "Fine service" rounds out the experience; it exceeds expectations.

Yelp Review:
The food was absolutely amazing! We have a dog and the owner/chef was wonderful to her. They let us sit on the patio and even brought her out a water bowl. I had the goat cheese salad (best goat cheese I've ever had) and the mussels and butter/wine/garlic sauce for dinner (amazing! I ate every single one!). My husband had the escargot and the special fish dish. He's a foodie and he said it was amazing! We would recommend this to everyone!

Zagat Review:
Our second visit to this nicely decorated restaurant located in an old two story house in downtown Ventura; very good French influenced food--the onion soup to start with was excellent. I had shrimp in a nice garlic sauce with vegetables for an entree--very good. My wife had duck in a peppercorn sauce, which she liked. For dessert, we shared a poached pear with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce--great! Very good service enhanced a fine dinner.

Yelp Review:
Great food. Great prices. Didier (the owner) comes and hangs out with you (if you want). Fireplace... just a nice place to eat. Prices are reasonable, mission style interior very homey.
