   "The designers of the establishment have made the space seem intimate and expansive. Its consistent success results from emphasizing flavors and contrasting textures. The chef has adapted traditional French recipes to make them "lighter" and has added elements of North African/Moroccan dishes. "

The Restaurant Guide Committee

"Revel in a "gastronomic tour de force" at this "national destination" in Georgetown, the "unforgettable" brainchild of "jovial" chef-owner Michel Richard; from the show kitchen emerge "intricate", "inventive" New French dishes, "accompanied by "superb" wines and "expertly served" in an "attractive" California-"chic" interior with a color-shifting mood wall; "from start to finish", "it doesn't get much better than this", but for an even more "extraordinary" evening, book the private chef's table."
