We wanted outdoor dining with the escalating COVID risk and Babette’s were still offering their patio, with plastic sheeting for cold weather and over head heaters. This worked well. Only 4 tables, so we felt safe from other guests. Food excellent as ever with lamb and scallops bring our choice.

Babette's is one of my go-to places, especially if I'm entertaining houseguests. I've been going to Babette's for 20+ years. However, I regret to say, the food on Sunday 1/11-2021 wasn't the best in my many years of experience. Both I and my companion agreed it was "Good" but not great. Perhaps we each just chose the wrong dish. But the veal and the scallops on this day were not up to par. BUT this is not preclude me from considering Babette's one of my favorite restaurants.

The two of us enjoyed our evening at Babette’s. The food was excellent with the flavor of France 🇫🇷 peaking through. An extended stay in Chile introduced us to Aperol Spritz and I was pleased to see on their drink menu. We enjoyed the liver pate as an appetizer. Overall very good flavors in a very pleasant setting.

Great food and service with excellent value. Always a lovely evening. They have kept tables well spaced and require masks when not at your table. They are taking the right precautions to keep us coming back.

We have enjoyed Babettes for many years. It is safe to say it is a favorite. We enjoyed the food once again. The service was slow even by European standards. The waitperson seemed to enjoy chatting with other tables and was perhaps distracted. Despite this, we will return.

Babette's is always good - one of our favorite restaurants, and this visit was no exception.
I want to mention the really outstanding desert menu. It would be hard for me to pass up creme brûlée or chocolate cake (which are both excellent), but she has a dried cherry almond tart that is so delicious and memorable. Leave room for it.
