It was a dinner for my boyfriend's mother... They worked hard to make it a great dining experience. Plus the food was amazing.
So there's a great menu on the wall of everything that you would want to eat - Roast Chicken, Steak Frites, etc. Except none of it is available. Not only is that stupid, it's disappointing. TO be 100% fair, the food we ordered was good, but it wasn't what we wanted to eat.
Why can't a restaurant have roast chicken? It's easy and someone in every party wants it.
I'll be back when there is a more widely pleasing menu, or they paint over the walls.
Excellent food and service. We'll go again when in that part of the city.
We are very happy to finally be able to drive his highly touted restaurant. Unfortunately it does not live up to its reputation.Tthe bartender had trouble making a perfect Manhattan and after two tries we called it quits
The roasted Bone Marrow was excellent but the Frog Legs / hen of the woods, sunchoke, watercress, garlic was very disappointing. You could not tell that you were eating frogs legs or anything else.
Blanquette de Veau was overcooked and somewhat tasteless.Lobster Thermidor / mustard jus, Brussels sprouts, lardons is very rarely seen on any menus today and was prepared very nicely.
Profiteroles / caramel ice cream, hazelnuts, chocolate sauce Very mediocre as was the two cappuccinos.
With tip the cost was $183. This restaurant is too inconsistent and certainly too expensive for the food served
Every dishes taste good and nice service, especially Duck a L'orange is exquisite roast. The best duck I have ever had. The combination with turnip likes some Japanese cuisine (Japanese traditional dish, Jibini), mild and comfort taste. Thank you!
I love this place. It has a great atmosphere and really wonderful food. Also, the country bread they bake there is amazing!
I have eaten here a few times. I like it. The establishment cares about the food and it is a reasonable size. Therefore there does not have to be the clinical precision of cooking identically sized pieces of food and placing it on to plates at X degrees because they know that in the 4.45 minutes the food takes to get to the table it will continue took by...... you get it. So eat here and enjoy. Always great oysters
The food was exceptional, the appetizer was delicious but the best was the duck, always the best.
this has been one of our go-to places in the neighborhood since they opened and the food has always been excellent. not last night. we both got pasta which was undercooked and served and something i can only descried as a glop of mushroom sauce. we just let it go and moved on to desert as we've always loved the profiteroles. they were stale.
the topping on the night was overhearing the chef tell one of the waiters that if one of the customers didn't like the food "she could just leave the f*$@!ing restaurant." a direct quote.
We had a reservation on Saturday night. The place was full, they couldn't seat us at a table, so we sat at the bar. The bartenders were too busy to speak to us for at least 15 minutes, and then we had to grab their attention to get a drink. Getting the menu was another ordeal.
I ordered 2 appetizers which were terrible and were not at all what was described on the menu. The seasonal salad was essentially only beets, 2 pickled mushrooms, 3 sprigs of frisee, and all on one side of the plate. I had to ask for some greens.
The roasted squash with duck prociutto was equally horrible: 3 lumps of tasteless pureed squash, with overly salty duck bacon stuck on top. Half the plate was empty, no other garnish.
The meat entrees on other tables looked well prepared, so I'm guessing that's what they know how to cook. So if you don't want to order a steak, blanquette de veau or tournedos, don't eat here.
