    Wonderful evening of fine food and friendly service. It was like dining at home with a personal wait staff - alert and attentive but inobtrusive. From cocktails through to dessert the food and beverages were prepared to perfection- tender duck, sweet lobster and sinfully rich chocolate. The room was elegant and the table set beautifully including custom fine china and all was refreshingly free of even a hint of "attitude." One of our most satisfying dining experiences.

    When I made my reservation to celebrate my wife's birthday, I was given an opportunity to have flowers delivered to my table. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were seated at a banquette overlooking the main room, with the flowers at the table. The room was beautifully decorated. We came with a groupon, but we were treated like honored guests. The service was wonderful. The food was beautiful and absolutely delicious. No course was too large, but the meal as a whole was quite filling. There really was nothing I would change about our meal. this is a wonderful restaurant for a special occasion.

    We love La Panetiere! We have to drive about an hour each way from Long Island but it is absolutely worth it every time! It would be lovely if the restaurant were closer to home, if so we would be there every week! But since we have to drive a distance the restaurant has unfortunately been relegated to the 'special occasion' category. Our preference is to choose the outstanding tasting with wine pairing menu. We have never been disappointed. The staff welcomes you back warmly, as if we are returning to 'old friends' while never veering from their attentive, professional, upscale service. Looking for another 'special occasion' so we can return again soon!

    It is always a special experience to dine at this restaurant. The service was at its peak during our last visit. In terms of food selections, we would highlight the steak (high quality and perfectly prepared) and the cheese selection. The restaurant does a remarkable job of pairing breads with servings. the only disappointment was the escargot, which should be a standard for a French restaurant. It did not meet standards on this occasion.

    What a wonderful experience! The place is so charming--a real French country cottage feel. And the staff, especially Stephane and Juan, were attentive and welcoming. The lunch prix-fixe was fantastic. The strawberry gazpacho was luscious and my friend said the baked escargot was the best she's ever had. The branzino was perfect and the chicken was also great. Yummy bread, hot from the oven. The 3 desserts were all wonderful--loved the berries, the crepes and the chocolate/orange. As a special touch in honor of the birthday we were celebrating, a small edible "happy birthday" message with a slim candle and strawberries was brought to the table. Elegant, lovely and beautifully prepared food and flavorful food make this a must visit!

    We celebrated our 25th with a dinner at La Panetiere last week and the evening was perfection. Although we were late, we were greeted warmly and seated quickly. Service was professional and elegant...from the plate of warm cheese puffs courtesy of the chef...to the extra chocolate souffle at dessert to compensate for a menu item that was not available that evening. The final touch was a Happy Anniversary cookie with fruit and sparklers! Yes, La Panetiere is old world, but other restaurants rush to turn tables, often with brusque wait staff, so what a pleasure it is to savor your meal and enjoy an elegant dining experience with friends and family. We look forward to many more wonderful evenings of great food at La Panetiere!

    La Panetiere is possibly the best restaurants in Westchester and South Conneticut. It is France at its best. French cuisine with no disguise, tasty, elaborated and authentic. The most professional service and a wine list that is not overwhelming: just the best wines by region. Everything just perfect, without excesses.

    La Panetiere is a very special place. We did not have a groupon so ordered off the regular menu. We were a party of 6 celebrating a birthday. The staff was very friendly and food came out at a good pace. I had dover sole which was outstanding..my wife had the soft shell crabs and said they were some of the best we ever had. We shared a bottle of the house pinot noir ( beringer) and was surprised at how good it was at a resonable price ($50). The only complaint was how pricey everything is, but worth it for a special occasion.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.
