We have been at this charming restaurant before and we were happy to sample their new spring/summer menu, even though it doesn't feel like spring outside!

My wife had the crabcake, which is an appetizer, as a main course, and she said was very delicious and satisfying. I had the veal ossobucco with the tri-colored carrots, which was very very flavorful. I was afraid it might be too heavy , but it was actually very light and tender.

The whole experience was all around wonderful!

The place has some unique character being located in the historic building with interior decoration suiting nicely the style. You could really imagine being somewhere at French countryside. The service was polite and attentive - and they speak English better than at the French countryside. Unfortunately the food did not quite meet our expectations having read all the positive reviews. Especially the duck confit was a disappointment: dry and tasteless like an overdone roasted chicken instead of the juicy fall-of-the-bone duck meat that one would expect. The other dishes were better, but nothing spectacular. At this price range you'll dine better elsewhere.

We had another delicious meal at La Cremaillere. The service was impeccable and the food was amazing. My only note was that they asked if this was for a special occasion when I made the reservation and I said it was for my MIL's birthday and noted this again when they called to confirm the reservation and yet they did nothing for her. That was the only disappointing part. Glad I didn't tell her that I let them know.

We have been there for lunch, dinner and for their seasonal menus, and they are without a doubt consistently well thought out and deliciously executed menus. Their pike dumplings seem to be a staple now on their menu and, either as an appetizer or a main course with that velvety sauce, they are simply out of this world.

My wife and I like to share a half bottle of white and a half bottle of red with our meal, and they have a nice wine list to choose from.

We had the special early spring menu and thought the food was disappointing. We’ve had many excellent meals here, including a few other special offering menus. This was our only bad experience. The duck confit was close to inedible and the beef was an inferior cut. Better to charge what you must and serve good food.

While the restaurant's ambience is still lovely, the food wasn't as good as I remembered. I had the duck and it was rather bland and the oysters were somewhat "fishy." My husband's lamb special was better. Maybe just an off night?

Another wonderful evening was had here at La Cremaillere in Bedford.

My wife and I frequent this restaurant for special occasions, or our business dinners, and certainly, with our children, even though they are most partial to the silver trays of French Fries than anything else, except perhaps the souffles!

We find everyone to be attentive, but not obtrusive, when they need to be. And, needless to say the food is consistently delicious. We are very happy here always.

My family and I recently celebrated an 80th birthday at Le Cremaillere. We had rented a limo and, due to the weather and some driver issues, arrived at the restaurant more than an hour late. Although I had called to alert them of our issue, I was skeptical that we wouldn't be greeted with strained smiles and rushed service. The absolute opposite was true; the staff at Le Cremaillere could not have been friendlier, more accommodating, or more efficient. We were greeted enthusiastically, and at no time did we feel rushed or forgotten. The food was delicious, the ambiance was delightful, and it was a pleasure to find a place that still institutes a dress code....it makes an occasion FEEL like an occasion, when one dresses for it! The birthday cake was delicious and and simply capped a perfect evening.

Our great appreciation goes to everyone at Le Cremaillere for making a special day even more special!

My wife and I have been going to La Cremaillere for over 20 years. We go on every special occasion which makes the special occasion a VERY special occasion. We have never been disappointed in any aspect of what a great resteraunt should be. Having been to Paris many times on both a business basis and pleasure, wherein my business associates were trying to impress me by taking me to many of the finest resteraunts in Paris, I can state without hesitation that La Cremaillere ranks among the finest.

This most recent visit was to take advantage of a 5 course meal that was offered at 50% off. Everything about the meal was exceptional. The price was certainly a bargain although, as with most restaurants, they did make up for it in part with the cost of drinks. Under any circumstances, this restaurant is a local treasure. Will be returning for Valentine's day.

I can't use enough superlatives about La Cremaillere. We dined there on New Year's Eve with a fixed five-course menu. In place of mass-produced indifferent food that might be expected in another restaurant we had an exceptional meal. This week we came for the Winter Tasting Menu, again five courses. What a wonderful experience, from the perfectly matched wine to the marvelous souffle. Every occasion at La Cremaillere is an event and we look forward to every visit there. Alpha-plus!
