Highly recommended if you're trying to gain a professional level of proficiency. It might not be what you want for just casual conversational French for a vacation or fun, but they follow a curriculum that's supported by the French government and prepares you to test for internationally recognized credentials of French language proficiency. You can use these courses and exams to demonstrate language proficiency for government and employers in the EU.
The placement test is pretty good at figuring out where you should start and I found the pace and schedule convenient. Drop in one day and do a placement test, the evaluator will answer any questions you have. If it doesn't feel right they're not going to pressure you.
My only real complaint, and it's a mild one to be honest, is that most (all?) of the course material and workbooks are very France-centric and there's not that much in the way of La Francophonie at large or even Canadian references. It won't really hurt your language skills, but it means that you are often learning things that are culturally specific to Metropolitan France.
