"Close to perfect" is how aficionados assess this "fantastic" French cafe adjacent to the Best Western Westfield Inn; lunch has à la carte options, but dinner is strictly prix fixe, and while opinions on the "formal" setting range from "elegant" to "tired", most agree the service is "outstanding" and the "food is inspiring" – even if "special-occasion" prices have some wondering, "are they based on the euro?"; P.S. jackets are recommended.
