    Cafe Routier has a long tradition of excellence, and our dinner hit on pretty much all cylinders. The pistachio pesto and bucatini were a rich accompaniment to the unadorned seared scallops, and my wife loved her trout. Grilled octopus was charred just right. To my mind, the fried oysters were a bit heavy with the batter, but the mollusks themselves were delicious. A terrific special occasion spot the will not disappoint.

    Excellent drinks and our waitress was great. I had the black bass special and the plum/butter sauce didn't quite go with the fish, but everything else was great.

    Wonderful place for a special occasion. The food is fresh and cooked to perfection and the waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable about every item on the menu. I'd recommend Cafe Routier to anyone.
