    Buffet lunch was excellent. Fortunately I got there before the heavens opened, so I dare say that the appalling weather prevented a lot of others from coming. The buffet was a help-yourself type, with pork, chicken, fish, mashed potatoes, rice cakes, a whole variety of sauces, and a separate salad bar including some very tasty cheese cubes. This was followed by a mango sorbet and then a chocolate fondant, both served at the table in individual dishes. The layout is excellent with a very French influence. The staff are charming and attentive, and everything about it seems good. I'll be back soon for the dinner.

    Crislyn and I went there for the buffet dinner. Personally, I am not a big fan of buffets so take my opinion lightly. You have to take it all in to justify the cost. If you take the salad and sushi as an appetizer, then the separate three dishes of mains and then the desserts, you can say it is cost justifiable. They do have a small but nice offerings of french wines, we had a bottle of Cotes du Rhone Villages. There was a large party of 12 locals sharing the inside with us so it wasn't quite charming french as it would normally have been. We thought all the food, from salad, main, dessert, was very tasty and very good quality. We will go back sometime to try the U.S. ribeye steak. Service was friendly and attentive.
    Bottom line, for the weekend buffet you have to not worry about the cost, enjoy the quality of each dish, and realize it is buffet food. I would not go back for the buffet but as stated will try their non-weekend menu offering some time. I didn't see any dishes shown in the pictures on the forum, maybe they offer those on the ala carte menu.
