The cozy interiors carry on the scheme of the exterior signage, with grids of colored glass embedded in the walls. I came here early one Saturday evening and the crowd was rather light. At the conclusion of my meal, the restaurant was packed with perky people who came through the unlocked door, so arrive early if you do not want to be disappointed.
The young staff here is friendly and accommodating without being annoying. I seemingly was served by every member of the crew during my dinner experience. I ordered veal chops, which were scrumptious. The chops were accompanied with cherry tomato and a potato and leek "pie", which was basically a stack of scalloped potatoes with bits of leek in between. The presentation was elegant and the taste was wonderful. Other excellent entrees include fish, steak and caramelized duck, along with good options for vegetarians. For dessert I had an apple tart with honey flavored ice cream (that’s a new one on me), all subtly sweet and edged with a sprig of mint leaf.
The list of drinks is nice, from Belgian beers like a glass of Vedett to wines to champagne. The bar area is deep in the interior if you are waiting for your table. The music selections are jazzy and offer a refined atmosphere for the romantic couples to enjoy. There are plenty of larger groups as well, celebrating the fact that they will soon enjoy a delicious and well-crafter meal here.
Bonsoir Clara is closed for lunch on weekends, and there is a long siesta between the lunch and dinner sessions on other days. If one of the doors is not open, be sure to try the other one!
