Laurier Lounge has some mealsLaurier Lounge has some meals that you will not find anywhere else. Beef Bourgignon is on the menu and I've never seen it anywhere else in the city.10/3/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been to the Laurier LoungeI've been to the Laurier Lounge on numerous occaisions for the Fondue Experience which starts off with cheese fondue, followed by beef (salad, potatoes and veggies) and finished with a chocolate fondue with fruit and homemade banana bread. It's a highly induldgent meal but worth every calorie! We went during Big Taste and the service was still good despite being a packed house. My only sad note was the consistency of the cheese fondue...runny in some places, super thick in others, tried mixing it up but that didn't help. It still tasted good though. And I think it may have been a one-off as every other time has been good.9/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food in an amazingAmazing food in an amazing room. Entire experience was lovely.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWell worth the drive from Edmonton!Located in the childhood residence of George Stanley, Laurier Lounge is an intimate venue brimming with character, perfect for couples and small groups. The decor and choice of music give an authentic European ambience and the service is timely and courteous. My fiancee and I enjoyed a romantic dinner accompanied by a fine bottle of wine from the extensive list. The fois gras appetizer was dangerously addictive with the apple jelly adding a well measured note of sweetness. Our main courses were a succulent striploin cooked to perfection and a light and flaky whole seabass. Both dishes were beautifully presented and a quality check from Chef Ryan O'Flynn was a special and personal touch. I cannot wait to visit again and try the desserts!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Food!!We had friends in town from Manitoba this weekend and they wanted to go to a great restaraurant that was different than anything they had at home. We had never been to Laurier before, but heard good things. We were very happy! Our food was fantastic. We did tapas and order about 8 different things for the 4 of us. It was very rich (as expected by French food) and we left very satisfied. THe restaurant is a cute little old house with so much character. We had our own little private room upstairs and it was great to catch up with our own privacy. I wouldn't go hear if you are looking for a lot of energy; it is much more intimate and romantic.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI can only say good things..We loved it....... I can only say good things of this restaurant.
Great food and great service.
We will go back again for sure!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA fantastic restaurant!AMAZING authentic French food. Their steak is excellent, perfectly cooked and tender. The Tartare and Onion tarte appetizer are delicious. This is the restaurant you take your wife or girlfriend to for an anniversary. I've been to Paris and the food here tops most of the dishes I've had there. Style is great and has a good vibe. Ambiance is dark, romantic and alluring. Perfect for date!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMontrealIt actually took me on memories of previos visits to Montreal. The server was very kind and informative, service was very good. We ordered from the dinner menue, our food was very hot and flavourfull. I was intentionally trying to avoid Italian/Asian /American /Fusion- and although technically in terms of cooking history thats impossible, I feel that goal was acheived and I was satisfied with the restaurant / menue selection. I think on a day off I would try the lunch menue and sit on the patio in the sun. I observed an extensive beverage / wine menue that could keep one busy for years.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFrench cuisine worth tryingFirst off the negatives: parking-not many spots, portions-a bit on the small side, though, I eat more than the average Joe. Now the positives: aside from that, you get a real sense of french cuisine, albeit Paris or Quebec=light and unique flavors not regularly enjoyed by most people. The hungrier I am, the more my taste buds come to life and I felt I could eat myself broke here. It might not be for absolutely everyone, but it's worth a try to see if you fancy this fancy.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLooooove This Place...feelLooooove This Place...feel like I am away on a vacation when here!!
