Our Dinner was good and service impeccable. Would have liked to have seen a more extensive “by the glass” wine selection. The escargot was acceptable but not what I expected, given the prominence of the restaurant.

The food was superb, the sauces elegant and the service impeccable. While it may be a “local” restaurant for many, it nonetheless deserves its “destination “ reputation.

Unfortunately my husband and I were very disappointed ! The service was extremely poor from the moment we walked in no one greeted us and no one at cost check. I had to flag a server to help us. There were 3 other tables being served in main dining room and a larger party up front. The larger party had all the attention and we were practically ignored through the evening . My husband ordered an expense bottle of wine for our Anniversary for our meal and we had to keep flagging the server to pour us wine !! Very disappointed!! You would think you spend a several hundred dollars for a nice dinner , service would be up to par.

We have dined here on a few occasions and the food is always delicious. The service is what is expected in a fine restaurant. The only issue we had this time was a party of 4 who thought that they were the only guests in the restaurant. Very loud! Aside from this, you will not be disappointed with La Cremaillere.

Nothing rejuvenates a cold end of winter day like sitting in front of the fire and having a truly delicious dinner at La Cremaillere. Absolutely spectacular crab cakes, venison and a yummy bottle of red burgundy. Thank you La Cremaillere!

We had an outstanding experience, part of which might have had something to do with the occasion and the fact the restaurant was not very crowded. But we have eaten here before and have never had a sub-par experience.

La cremaillere is an exceptional French restaurant . From the moment you enter the restaurant you are transported. it is reminiscent of dining in an eloquent yet comfortable French country restaurant . The food , its presentation and service are all on a very high level. We highly recommend La Cremaillere !!!

Lunch is a wonderful deal. We had only been here for dinners in the past, but decided to go for lunch, and didn't expect to see a reasonably priced prix fixe at $32. The choices, as always, are broad, creative, and authentic, and the three-course lunch was quite impressive. All three of us had different items, and everything was excellent. It has been our experience that all the food is top-notch, and this meal was no different.

The ambiance at The Creamie is always wonderful. I chose to bring friends for a nice Sunday lunch. The escargots with pesto cream and Angel was delicious although overly salty for my taste. 2 guests had the leg of lamb which they enjoyed despite a bit of a corn starchy gravy. I ordered the warm shrimp salad which came with 4 medium sized grilled shrimp around ramekin shaped greens. The shrimp were cold and the salad was so overdressed it was wilted and almost inedible. I guest ordered crepe brûlée for dessert which gobbled up and I ordered a chocolate soufflé which was actually awful. It was somewhat warm as I reached the bottom, the chocolate syrup added tasted very much like Hershey’s syrup - this from an iconic restaurant noted for their soufflés. If I go back I’ll be smart and order the pate or the smoked salmon for for my main with a small salad to start.

We went here for my husband's birthday, and we brought our three teenage boys, each in jackets/ties. It was a lovely opportunity for them to experience fine dining in their otherwise college dorm lives. The food was excellent from start to finish, the service was attentive and friendly, and my husband enjoyed a truly wonderful meal with his sons and his wife.

Felt just like Paris, really bad and entitled attitude from servers and manager. Got there 30 minutes before reservation to have drink in bar with our friends. Was told to sit. They "preferred if we sat at the table", while the bar was empty. So was the dining room. Food was mediocre. For $500 for four, plenty of great places not too far away. I prefer to never go again.

One of the most fabulous New Years Eve I have spent in a restaurant in my life! The decor, the charm, the well thought out menu... from Pike Dumplings to Roasted Pheasant to Mediterranean Sea Bass, Grand Marnier Souffles and Glasses of Champagne, and soft rock and roll music playing in the background of a lovely counrty setting. We are now ready for 2019!
