    We were celebrating our 25th anniversary and chose La Grenouille for this special evening. We had an excellent table, great service, very enjoyable music and overall a very good dinner. The one disappointment was my entree which was the warm fois gras. Fortunately we capped off our dinner with their delicious soufflés; my wife chocolate and I Calvados. Overall, a very enjoyable evening!

    I remember fondly this restaurant which has slipped to good from being extraordinary. Wine glasses with wine still in them were removed by the Captain, service was rushed, and food while good, wasn't as good as it has been in prior years. Overall, we were disappointed.

    We were so excited when we arrived and saw the beautiful inside. But it went down hill after that. The service was painfully slow, leaving us hungry for moments before our next course. Some of the dishes tasted like they had been sitting out and getting cold. The staff was polite but things were taking too long regardless. We were there for 3 hours from start to finish with the 3 courses. We received drinks at the bar that took 30 min to reach our table after. Overall very dissatisfied with the experience. It is a shame.

    Food was surprisingly not what I’d expected given the reputation of the restaurant. The fish was very fishy, the bread a bit dry, the butter cold. Service was very friendly and attentive and the interior was absolutely stunning. Gorgeous flowers and a lovely ambiance.
