Diner Reviews
  • "Le Panetiere is always a special place. I chose this as a destination for myself and three sisters to celebrate a milestone birthday for one of us. Though none of us live in the Rye area, we all met there for lunch. The staff made us all feel so welcome and comfortable and accommodated our special birthday requests. As always, the food was superb and beautifully presented. My birthday sister enjoyd it so much that she and her husband returned the next night for dinner. If you have not dined at Le Panetiere, I highly recommend it. It is a very special place."

  • "As always an incredible experience with magnificent food and wine served by professionals. Attention to detail is near flawless yet not tense. We have been dining there for over 20 years and perhaps I might have missed it on previous visits but I do not remember seeing as many guests without jackets (or ties) as we did on Saturday. Certainly understand the new move to relaxed dining but this remains a traditional French dining experience and while that may play well in other places I think this experience deserves a bit more formality. One look at the food and you know that the kitchen was working all day to prep that dish. That much effort deserves the respect of a jacket and tie."

  • "We have been going to La Panetiere for years, and although it was usually good, there were ups and downs . However, the last few times we went, everything was wonderful. We've had the best meals we've ever had there. If you haven't been there for a while, try it again. If you've never been there and want a beautiful,elegant French restaurant with great food and service, give it a try. Also, definitely have a soufflé! The grand marnier one is amazing."

  • "We dined using a Groupon. As with prior times when we have gone, the food was excellent with very attractive presentations. Courses that were shared were pre-split by the kitchen, which was a nice touch (including the soufflé dessert which they did by making two small soufflés). Two complaints. First, the Groupon cost $82 and was "valued" at $165. If one chose the most expensive items, the maximum regular value was about $130, so they are overstating the value by about 25%. Still a good deal, but not as good. Second, they charge tax on the $165 value rather than the price paid (which is contrary to NY sales tax regulations). Between the extra tax and tipping on the stated "value," the actual price paid is much closer to full cost."

  • "In the old days, there were professional waiters. These "professional waiters" were not actors looking for work. They were people that took serving food to customers as a profession. La Panetiere hasn't forgotten what it means to have a professional wait staff....or, what is traditionally known as "French Service". From the moment you arrive, they know who you are. They know where they are seating you and hey know what you ate the last time you ate at their restaurant. There food is very, very good. There waitstaff is attentive and it is clear that most of them have worked at La Panietieire for at least 20 year. I am coming back to try ti again. Adam"

  • "La Panetiere is the finest restaurant I've encountered in Westchester. I've eaten here numerous times over the years and it never fails to please, whether for a small intimate dinner, or a large, special occasion dinner. The food, the staff, and the setting is perfect. Dessert is a special event all its own! "

  • "While it had been about 20 years, the meal was extraordinary in every way. The delicately sauteed BABY soft shell crabs were the best I've ever had! The lovely mixed greens/vegetables salad was beyond any i have had and it's hard to make a mixed salad something to talk about. But the creme de la Creme was the grand marnier souffle cooked to perfect delivered at the perfect moment and imbued with the right amount of creme anglaise. It is hard to get just one of these things right but to do all is simply amazing. Kudos to all and thanks for making a lovely evening for two old friends. "

  • "Always enjoy visits to this special occasion restaurant. I decided to be adventurous and order the "shad roe". Not to my likeing (a bit bitter) & will not order it here again. Since I have never tried it before, I don't know if it was the manner in which it was prepared, or if I simply don’t like shad roe. Everything else was delicious & I will return. "

  • "I've been to La Panetiere twice in the last few months. The first time was with a group of ten and we had a beautiful private room. The second time we were in the garden room which was equally lovely. The food is wonderfully French. Everything was delicious and I would highly recommend La Penetiere."

  • "I had been to La Panetiere on business lunches as well as private dinners and had always been very satisfied with the food and service. This occasion was a "Mother's Day" special menu and I was initially worried that the kitchen and service would be overwhelmed by a very full dining room. The special menu was outstanding and service was both friendly and attentive. Exceptional wine list."

  • "Atrocious experience...we're learning the hard way not to go out to fancy restaurants on big national holidays. They never told us it was a Fixed Prix Menu (substitutes allowed!!??) And, to make t worse, two courses on the Fixed Price menu had no options. Several times we heard the waiters wondering where the food was...it took 25 minutes to get simple sorbet and ice cream deserts to the table. No one apologized...the "mothers" didn't even get the "goody bags"...maybe worth a try on a normal day!!??"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We were quite disappointed in the very slow service and lack of attention to essential details that one would expect from such a establishment. There was no salt nor a butter knife at one placement. This sounds picky but if they aspire to the ranks of a great restuarant they need to pay attention. We rarely saw the waitor and had to motion to get his attention for the wine list. The food was uneven and sauces overwhelmed the scallops and lamb."

  • "We love this restaurant for the charming french country decor and food. The prix fixe menu is always a wonderful choice, and the wine pairings are delightful! Good for special occasions or anytime... we drive from Long Island, well worth it! Always a wonderful experience!"

  • "We have been here many times and have never been disappointed. This was a special occasion (birthday celebration) and at the end of the meal we were brought out a sparkler in a strawberry. A couple celebrating their anniversary got a similar but with two sparklers. The service is superb and that staff treats everyone like family. We will be returning again soon."

  • "With my wife we have been to this restaurant many times in the past but we found our dinner experience last week really enjoyable. It was not noisy like in many restaurants today and the food was just perfect and absolutely delicious, the wine list is incredible and we had a great St Estephe from Bordeaux that we did not know which was amazing for not too much of a crazy price "

  • "The last time we had dinner there was over a year ago. We were quite happy with the experiences prior to that evening as well. This time, with the groupon, we had to share the appetizer and dessert. That was disappointing. the food was rather mediocre - salad was not impressive but ordinary, the plating in general was messy, overly salted shrimp - and the service was ok. The workers disturbed me somewhat - they didn't know how to put the plate correctly and were not thorough with what they were doing. I am sorry this groupon made it easier for everybody to take advantage of the restaurant but seems to have downgraded the food and service."
