Didier Jouvenet’s “classic” French “destination” in Westfield has “been around for years” “for good reason” – namely, “consistently terrific” cuisine and “impeccable” service provided in a “quiet”, “elegant” setting; while some find the prices “trop cher”, many consider it their “go-to place” for a “romantic” dinner or “special occasion.”

Courier News, December 2007
