Executive Chef Adam Carpenter has created an approachable, yet inventive menu, presenting a French twist on American fare. With a wholesome and earthy quality, many dishes elevate “comfort” food. Natural light from the romantic inner fountain courtyard, intimate alcoves, a large communal table and versatile private dining spaces. Rustic stone floors, natural wood tables, leather seating and an original art program create a warm and inviting, yet grand and inspiring, space that will create the most memorable dining experience in Lafayette. The Park Bar overlooks the recently renovated covered patio with an adjacent outdoor terrace featuring two fire pits offering both dining and casual lounge seating year round. The Park Bar offers guests traditional bar fare, a selection of artisanal beers and wines by the glass, and classic cocktails.

    Food was burned but waiter didn't return to the table until everyone else in my party was finished. Ended up with no food but they did take it off the bill.

    We used to love their Sunday Champagne Buffet but they discontinued it in early 2009 and now have a very scaled down semi-buffet with a couple of salads/desserts plus your ordered entree. Please bring back the full Sunday buffet!!

  • Despite the fact that our
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/24/2008
    Despite the fact that our reservation request clearly stated "anniversary dinner" we were seated very close to a table with three or four pre-schoolers at it, in an otherwise empty dining room. The side dishes were overcooked and the waitstaff kept bringing us another table's food. On the plus side, the dessert cookie plate was out of this world. It's too bad that the entrees were prepared by a chef who is not in the same league as the pastry chef. $100, without wine, definitely not worth the price. We will not have another dinner at this restaurant, it is an amateurish operation. I got the impression that the dining room is run by a former Sizzler or Denny's manager. The waitress was far more competent.

    We thought the food at The Duck Club was excellent this time - there must be a new chef? The cuisine is now at the level of S.F. or College Ave. restaurants, the service is polished and while the re-model isn't a total success, it's nice to have a dinner menu of this quality on our side of the tunnel!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/19/2008
    I was very disapointed in the service and food quality. We arrived after the dining room seating for lunch was closed--even though--I made a reservation for 1:30PM-there was no grace period. We arrived at 2PM--it was closed. All that was open was the Bistro. I had to go to the kitchen to find a food service person to take our order. The kitchen staff said the bartender could take our order. The bartender upon my request did take our order. All the bistro had was a skirt steak--it was VERY tough. I brought my 95 year old friend for a nice lunch. It was NOT a nice lunch. My friend requested a steak--he could barely chew it--I had a taste and I could not chew either. I paid over $60.00 for a lunch for two--I will never go back.

    Our family went for breakfast, we have dined there before. The toast came 10 minutes before the meal and the eggs on 3 of 6 plates needed to be returned because they were undercooked. You would expect a little better for fine dining even if it is breakfast. Service is good and environment is nice.

    Our waiter was unfortunately AWFUL. He had no personality, seemed to be in a very bad mood and put off all of the guests at the table. We were very disappointed, however the food was very good.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 3/29/2008
    The server at Duck Club worked very hard with me to point out items which could be made without salt or have sauces on the side. Unfortunately, although my salmon was salt-free, it was overcooked, being fresh frozen. I know it is hard to cook fresh frozen fish perfectly. The steamed vegetables were well prepared. I appreciate that the restaurant offered to take the item off our bill. OTOH, my husband's rib eye was perfect he told me. I had sashimi for an appetizer and it was delicious. My husband's salad was also very good. He had wine and thoroughly enjoyed it. My hot green tea was in a nice teapot and was hot and tasty. The new renovations are warm, comfy, and chic.
