The main course was amazing. The rack of lamb was worth every penny. Our server took forever and a couple of times had to be reminded after several minutes that we haven't received our cocktails. Then getting the check so we could leave also took forever but again the main course was amazing and we would love to go back again soon.

We dined here for date night and everything about our experience was top notch. I had the pepper crusted new York steak, cooked medium rare with truffle butter whipped potatoes. My wife had a flavorful rack of lamb with a crust perfectly seared on the outside and juicy on the inside. Tender and robust. The steamed clams were so good we had them bring us more bread to sop up the broth. The view of the boats in the marina from our window side booth made the ambiance memorable. We spent a lot of money for a great dinner that we felt was so worth it we ended up tipping 40%. Le Grand isn't something we can afford too often, but will be the first choice for future date nights. When you find perfection theres no need to search any further. In one word our experience was absolutely ENCHANTING.

I think brunch was mediocre, but I imagine their lunch and dinner items would be a lot better. It was those items on the menu that sounded really appetizing. The view was amazing. Very nice ambiance. Service was solid until the restaurant started to pick up a bit near the tail end of our meal, and then our server was a bit less attentive.

Everything rose above our expectations and believe me I have high expectations when it comes to French food. The ambiance, view and service were also terrifi.

After my most recent lunch at Le Grand I’m reluctant to recommend it or return. I’ve always enjoyed the meal, service, & value in the past. Could it be there’s a new chef? This visit was a bad experience. I ordered a French Dip which came on a soft hot dog sized bun, not what I’d expect for a traditional sandwich. It was soggy after dipping in the bland au jus. The beef was tender enough but it was sparse. The second half sandwich was cold by the time I’d finished the first half.

Wine selection looked good, but we had business meetings later in the day. I ordered Beoef Bourguignon, and she ordered a French Dip with Pomme Frite. The view is nice from the dining room.

This place never disappoints, at all. Always wonderful service and the food is delicious. It is not cheap otherwise we would be there more often.

At our Xmas eve visit, we were given an envelope containing a discount voucher to use towards dinner during January ranging anywhere from $15 - $500. The waiter opened it after our meal and to much drama and anticipation, revealed $20 discount! We were planning on returning at some point, but a great idea to encourage customers to dine in the new year! Once again, a delicious meal and impeccable service.
