Except they didn't apply the Fork discount all is perfect (I didn't dare to claim in front of my guests) : Very good food, nicely prepared and original presentation ! Welcoming and service very professional and friendly together ! Perfect atmosphere for a date, friendship even family (my case) !
Wine choice well selected and worth for the pricing.

Fantastic meal, special highlights were the marbré de boeuf au fois gras and the canette, however to be frank every single plate was exceptional and harmonising with the others in the menu. Our congrats to the chef and the team that managed well a large amount of guests!

Food is incredibly good and the atmosphere is lovely - really nice lightning and decoration. Service was super slow, we had to call them several times and when we finally paid (after like 30 minutes waiting) and left, we realised they hadn't applied the 20% discount with The Fork. I contacted them to see if they could reimburse it and they simply said they would apply it on the next visit - not going back with such a service for that price even with excellent food.

Slow service and OK but overpriced food.
At the end, our bill was wrong, not a big deal as such but when we asked to correct it,the waitress (or manager, I couldn't tell) told us in an offensive manner that we shouldn't make a fuss over a few Euros. Excuse me?
After this episode, the service went from slow all the way to terrible, the waitress didn't stay with us while were paying by card (not that she was busy somewhere else), We almost had to take our coats ourselves out of the wardrobe when we left, and of course nobody helped us to put them on.
Overpriced food (though not untasty) and terrible service.

Marvelous 22€/person gastronomic lunch including starter (2 choices) and main dish (2 choices, including veggie lasagna); excellent organic red wine (sold by cm); very nice decoration and atmosphere (rock music from the 80ies, among others). I keep coming back!

The setting, perfect!
The food, perfect!
The personalities of the staff, perfect!
It is a great place, but it was clearly understaffed, they were full ( it was Tuesday) but we waited almost an hour for drinks, not their fault! They did not stop, and were constantly running with smiles on their faces , trying their best to accommodate everyone. I understand the service industry is extremely difficult and if people are sick, management haven’t scheduled the Rota’s well, last minute bookings etc this is beyond the servers fault.. has the potential to be an amazing all round place, it’s clearly popular, and this should be accommodated by the staffing

Service was very friendly but a bit chaotic: We had to ask 2-3 times until we got what we asked for, we got a wrong bill (we were charged a bottle of wine instead of just one glass and the 20% discount for the La Fourchette booking was only taken into account upon request).

Second visit and excellent impression confirmed. outstanding Quality of the products, perfect cooking, impeccable presentation.
Attentive service even if a bit slow (too busy at peak time).
Cocktails are original and a very very very recommended starter! We’ve have tasted a few different ones and all of them are delicious.
Prices are slightly high but reasonable if you consider quality and service. Definitely, we will return.

The food was very good, but the service is below acceptable. I called multiple times to get advice on parking (impossible to find in the area at rush hours), but the noise inside made it impossible to communicate, the other person eventually hanged up. Clearly understaffed, everything was late or wrong, despite a general positive and kind attitude : food arrived after more than 1 h, bill was wrong and in the end the reduction for booking via The Fork was not applied. Will not go back. A pity, because with the right management the place could be great.

Great restaurant and at affordable price thanks to the reduction we got via the fork. Wonderful discovery. Great place to have a meal between friends.
