Fantastic food and service – We came in and did a chef menu, and my wife had wine pairings. Nearly every course was exceptional, especially the filet mignon, duck and the scallops. I'm a steak guy and when I go back, I'll be getting the scallops as my entree. My wife, who mostly gets seafood couldn't agree more. The waiter practically painted a picture with his food descriptions, the chef/owner Michel Tersiguel even brought out a course and described it himself. A very nice touch I thought, and we were made to feel right at home. Wine pairings were spot on, my wife thought, who loves wine. I do believe the waiter was also the wine steward there, as I saw him recommending wines for other server's tables. Top quality service, from very friendly staff, without some of the pretension I've experienced at places like Petit Louis. I also very much enjoyed the nuances and family like feel they had which I don't get at places like Ruth's Chris. I notice they must do a number of tableside dishes on their regular menu as well, as I saw steaks and crepe suzettes being done tableside that evening. A nice touch I thought, as that seems to be a dying art. Sadly, the crepes were not the dessert on our chef menu, as they smelled wonderful. The waiter even took us on a tour of the 3 story restaurant which has different themed dining rooms on each floor, and was very informative about the history of the building and the reataurant. Something I loved being a history nerd. All in all, a delightful meal and experience. I'm looking forward to going back
Quality Service and Great Food – It was very refreshing to be in a nice restaurant where the wait staff is professional and friendly. Many of the ingredients for the dishes are grown on the family farm outside of town. The Kobe beef was extrordinary. My fiancee had the Halibut which was also very tasty. The creamed spinach was not too rich and fresh. The potoatoes were a bit dry but tasty. Overall just a fantastic dining experience. The atmosphere is wonderful and again I can't say how great the wait staff was. Highly recommended....
My favorite restaurant – This is my favorite restaurant. Due to the fact that it's a bit expensive, I usually only get to go once a year, on my birthday. They have a cute little greenhouse attached to the back, where there are tables as well. If you can get a table in the greenhouse during a rainstorm, there's nothing more romantic.
Everything here is fabulous, but the best thing of all is their Crepes Suzette. It's not on the menu, so you'll have to ask for it. I would go here for the Crepes Suzette alone.
