The food was outstanding and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful in pointing us towards some great options to try. We are from out of town but frequently visit. This will definitely be added to our regular rotation of places to go when we are in town. 10/10 recommend!

I went there to celebrate my engagement and they upgraded my table as soon as we got there. The food was great! A completely positive experience. Our server was knowledgeable about every dish and the wine list. The beef Wellington is a must have, as well as the caviar. Be prepared do spend some money but if you’re looking for an experience to share with someone, this is the place to go.

We had a wonderful meal at Colette’s. Reservations on a Wednesday made weeks before was our date night out. Worth the wait.
