  • Lovely but old fashioned

    Food was delicious but the decor is old fashioned. We had a lovely night but not sure we'd go back. We are a couple in our early forties. It's not going to attract the younger crowd as it is. It needs a complete redo. I understand it's french provincial but even french provincial has moved on with the times. This restaurant will flizzle out with its older customers if it doesn't do something soon. It would be a shame to see great food and great friendly service lost in the local area.

    Dined on 9/9/2014
    Sauces of our main courses were dripping off the plates because the buy boy wanted to bring them to the table at the same time. My wife was putting some butter on her bread when the waiter suddenly just decided to put my wife's filled glass wine on top of my wife's empty dinner plate. Waitstaff do not stand on the correct side when serving food and when taking out used plates. In their current menu, the potato chips cheapen the presentation of the sweetbread and the rabbit dishes. The same is true with the onion rings on top of the fillet steak.

    We had a wonderful dining experience - again! As in the past, all the food was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The service was efficient, responsive and unobtrusive. The wait staff are experienced professionals. La Panetiere is among the best restaurants in Westchester and rivals the best in NYC. Its pricey, but well worth it.

    We were celebrating our anniversary and had a fantastic experience. The service was outstanding. Ordered the 6 course menu and each course was delicious. They were able to substitute when the main course choices were both what I do not eat. Quiet, romantic, delicious food and very attentive service. What else could you want for a special occasion. The 6-course prix fixe menu was reasonable at $85/each but once we added wine and tip, the check came close to $400 for 2 ppl so was a bit expensive. Otherwise I would recommend.

    La Panetiere has a long and well-deserved reputation as the best French restaurant in Westchester. The décor is so lovely, especially the flower arrangements. The service manages to be formal (as befits a restaurant of this quality) and yet friendly. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. It has long been a favorite for special occasions, and we would go more often if it weren't so costly. (But Groupn deals are available, which eases the pain considerably.) A class act, in every way.

    I wrote a note on my Open Table reservation that it was our 26th anniversary and we'd like a "nice table". They must have listened. We had a table next to the garden window. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The waiters were "smiling" and helpful in picking out wine and desserts. I had the filet and my husband had roasted rack of lamb without the bones! They looked like two little filets on the plate with elegant sauce. The warm chocolate souffle was worth the 15 minutes to make! Even gave us anniversary card andcookie with candle in it! Now, this is more of a formal restaurant where gentlemen need to wear jackets and it is pretty much a "grown up" environment..which is exactly what we wanted.

    Generally, I save La Panetiere for special occasions and visit two or three times a year. I especially enjoy going for lunch because the restaurant is not too busy, it's very relaxing and the service is impeccable. The food is extremely flavorful and the presentation is almost like a work of art. Wonderful French experience in Westchester!!

    We used to dine here regularly. Then we moved away from the area and haven't been back for 10+ years. So we were a bit apprehensive about what we'd find after so much time. Turns out La Panatiere is as good as ever! For lunch there was only one other table occupied, so service was perfect. I can't say what it's like on a crowded Saturday evening. Foie gras and duck terrine for appetizers, both outstanding. Lobster casserole and Dover Sole for the mains, both outstanding. I love Dover Sole but when you see it on a menu it's usually just a dressed-up flounder. Here, it's the real thing, cooked perfectly in a beurre blanc sauce, filleted table-side. Assorted cheeses instead of dessert; perfect with our remaining wine. We LOVE La Panatiere.

    I have eaten here many times. As always, each dish was expertly prepared. You can tell that great care was given to the preparation and presentation of each dish. Attention to detail was first rate. The mix of flavors was enticing to the palate. Their grand marnier souffle is to die for! Don't miss it! The service is always outstanding. After each meal, I feel like I've been to a "real" country inn in the French countryside. Well worth the money.

Chef Dean Loupiac creates traditional and innovative French cuisine in the same breath and makes La P the most sought after venue in the Fairfield/Westchester region for true devotees of fine French cuisine.

    Hadn't been to La Panetiere in a while, though only heard good things from all my friends who visit it regularly and always speak about their lunch or dinner experiences enthusiastically. We just didn't have the opportunity to go. When an occasion came up, a friends birthday, we booked knowing that we will have a good meal and looked forward to the lovely setting we remembered. But our expectations were surpassed. The welcome, friends called ahead to ask for a downstairs table, was warm and friendly. Service, friendly, drinks delicious and each dish worth marveling about. We pre-ordered 3 soufflés and I had the most picture perfect dacquoise which wasn't only pretty but delicious.. Can't wait to come back.

    I was fortunate to dine here twice last week: lunch & the next evening dinner. At lunch my 3 sisters celebrated my birthday. Next evening, with my husband, the thoughtful, alert waiter remembered my birthday & surprised me again with a birthday treat & even a little take-away gift of delectable choc. truffles. This was my 3rd visit. I live in Wash., DC; if I lived closer, we would be regular customers. This sublime restaurant is a disappearing type: total professionalism in food prep, ambiance & service. From the presentation of delicious rolls and the amuse bouche to the jewel-like complimentary sweet treats at the dinner's conclusion, it's perfection without stuffiness. It follows old-world fine-dining rules with a trendy menu.

    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.
