Diner Reviews
  • "We unfortunately had a bad experience. On La Cremiallere's website it says casual elegant for attire. So I wore a pair of knee length Polo white shorts and a beautiful shirt. When we arrived the Maître de turned us away. They allow women to wear skirts right? So this is discrimination. Anyway we can get a refund on our groupon. Not a good experience ?"

  • "One dines at La Cremaillere. The service is impeccable, the French country ambience relaxing, and the menu is excellent. I would have preferred to have seen among the selections boeuf bourguignon and coq au vin, but as time goes on these delicacies are disappearing from French restaurants in the U.S. I am puzzled by this as they are wonderful delicacies! I ordered scallops. Fish is always a challenge, but my scallops were perfect. The potages were creamy and surfeit with goodies. I shall recommend this lovely restaurant to my friends, indeed!"

  • "Wonderful summer night again at La Cremaillere! Red snapper in champagne truffle sauce and a glass of rose from Provence ... put a big smile on my face! My boyfriend and I love this place!"

  • "We had high hopes for a special occasion meal, but we were disappointed by the food. While well-executed, with excellent, fresh ingredients, dishes were over- sauced and too rich. We expected a lighter touch for a summer menu. Wine list had very few bottles priced under $60- wines were mostly French, and many in the triple digits. The decor is charming and service attentive. But with the steep prices, not worth the money."

  • "In addition to the excellent food, impeccable service & charming ambiance at La Cremaillere, we go there to sit and converse in a peaceful, gracious atmosphere. No one is ever rushed and the noise level is low. Have been there twice this month to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries."

  • "it was a very quiet day as the weather was beautiful and many were out enjoying tennis, etc. We chose to leave the city for a lovely delicious experience. We were not disappointed. My salmon was cooked to perfection with a savory sauce. The warm chocolate cake was made with butter, an ingredient I require for good taste. We hope to return soon."

  • "The service as always is excellent. I found the food a bit dull. The melon soup offered gratis was interesting but my salmon entree lacked oomph. We dined on a groupon and that was accepted graciously."

  • "This is probably my best experience in long time. Food Great!, Service EXCELLENT! Perfect place to express your love. Fred the waiter is Awesome! Not pricey as mentioned in other post, you pay for what you received, and besides the prices are in the menu so If you are a cheap skate, Applebees is across town. La Cremaillere hats off to you! Well done!"

  • "This restaurant always gets it right! Everytime we go we are treated so specially and the food is just delicious, and served with such care and friendliness. Stephane and Omar are always accommodating and knowledgeable. On our last visit, the halibut with lemon thyme sauce was perfect."

  • "We have been many times to this restaurant but we never tired the tasting menu. Our son gave us a gift certificate for this type of menu and it was great. I thought that we might still be hungry after a "tasting menu" but that was not the case...in fact, I brought some of the goodies home. the food was really tasty."

  • "This establishment does things correctly. The food, presentation, service, ambiance, decor all reminded my us of being in France. The menu was varied enough, the wine list extensive and our meal was prepared to perfection. By far, the best choice for any special occasion. Expensive but well worth every dollar spent. My wife and I both loved it and cannot wait to get back again."

  • "Amuse bouche: cold and greasy. Appetizer: ravioli with peas. Sent back twice, pasta rubbery. Soup tepid. Main courses OK; foie gras good. Souffle very good."

  • "As always, outstanding classical French cuisine with a modern touch. Snails were delicious, as was the billi-bi. And the dessert soufflés are the best. Excellent wine list, very competent service, and warm reception by the owner and staff."

The service is excellent, the food outstanding, the menu very appealing, the wine list truly extraordinary, and the experience sublime.

  • "It had been years since we've been here and that's our loss. A Groupon opportunity arose and we went for a friend's birthday and we're greeted with a wonderful evening. Excellent food in a beautiful setting with a wine list that can best be described as expansive and expensive. Appetizers are huge and a "crab two ways" special appetizer was particularly outstanding."

  • "La Creamiliere is still the classic Haute French Cuisine. The place is elegant country French, However, casual at same time. Excellent food and service. A true pleasure. "

  • "We celebrated a special family birthday for 10 at La Cremailere. They provided us with a private room, spectacular service and some special accommodations. It was pouring rain and they offered umbrella assisted service from restaurant to car as well as allowing me to call the next day with the Groupon coupon number since the confirmation email I brought with me was not the one with the bar code.."

  • "If you have dealt with amateur or rude servers, even at the most upscale boites, you will find LaCremaillere a refreshing change. Everyone was ingratiating and professional. This is the sort of upscale restaurant where the appetizers and the deserts outshine the main course - I don't know why this is the case so often. Sweet pea ravioli, pates and an artichoke terrine all outshone the main acts. Our two desserts, the fig bread pudding and the mini-cones were just about perfect. For mains, two of us had the special a roulade of beef with a veal center, one of us had the filet and one the cod. All of the dishes were nicely presented. The roulade was disappointing. Wish it came with the gratin like the filet. The side of frites made up for it."

  • "Always happy here! With friends we enjoy a wonderful time at this very charming country restaurant. Spring is here - we had sweet pea raviolis with sauvignan blanc sauce, a terrine of artichoke hearts, lamb duo of rack and loin. Our friends had the cod fish with blood orange sauce. Everybody raved! They have some new desserts which we loved, one is an apricot peach cake and the best individual lemon tartlettes we have every had. Thank you!"
