We had an outstanding lunch during Restaurant Week - great classic French cuisine. They offer fantastic value and the menu was varied and interesting. Also the service is professional and unobtrusive.

My wife and I have been talking about Le Vieux Logis for some time and finally went for the first time. My wife really enjoys French food and we were not disappointed. The meal was delicious -- including appetizer, salad, fish soup and our two entrees, duck and chicken breast. The service on the other hand was spotty and very so/so, beginning with the coat check "boy" and inattentive waiter. The ambiance was very nice and conducive to quiet conversation.

First time back since it changed owners. Food was the same-passable but nothing special. The service was terrible. The waitstaff spends a lot of time talking with each other, huddled up by the “bar” and pay little attention to the customers. No one inquired if we were satisfied with the food. The hostess (owner?) disappeared and perhaps the staff left to their own devices aren’t professional enough to work without supervision. Or perhaps the new owner just lets them do what they want. They were all older men, maybe long time employees who have gotten slow and lazy. When we went out to the valet for the car, we had to describe it since he doesn’t give a ticket like everywhere else. It was raining and we stood without cover in the rain awhile he brought the wrong car. Then he realized ours was in a lot across the street. We grabbed the key and ran for it. Won’t be back.

I love this place. The staff are quiet and professional, the food is authentic and delicious. We had a wonderful 3-hour dinner, with no pressure, no pushing us out the door, just a lovely French meal and time to chat. Thanks again to the staff and management, who obviously care about what they do.

This was my second holiday visit in as many years, and while some staff has changed, the food and service were still superb. The atmosphere is quiet and the clientele is generally older. We enjoyed the pork shanks, the crispy duck orange, and the sole meuniere as well as hearty onion soups and delicious and decadent desserts. The staff is quietly attentive and thankfully does not question if you are enjoying your meal - it goes without saying that you are!

We hadn't been there in years. It was better than I remembered it before, the dining room, although full, was pleasantly quiet, the service was excellent. The food was great, especially the Lobster Bisque. I wish they would pay slightly closer attention to the request for "low salt" on the entrees, but other than that, it was really great and we will return soon!

We had the Prix Fixe lunch and were very satisfied. There were several choices and we made different selections. Each of the courses were nicely prepared, and nicely flavored or spiced, so the kitchen did an overall good job and produced a very satisfying meal and was great value for money.

Traditional French cooking and service. The food is excellent -- and the staff is outstanding. I always feed special when I go to this restaurant. In addition to the regular menu there is a prix fixe menu and a daily special menu.
Whether it is a celebration or just an evening to treat yourself well, this is the place to go.

We have dined here since 1980 and through several changes in ownership. The decor is lovely, the tables are widely spaced and the formal white table cloth settings set the proper tone.

The food is classically French and well done. The boudin blanc and the choucroute are wonderful winter meals. The duck confit was excellent, but the lobster bisque was bland. The desserts are very appealing and done with real artistry.

The service was attentive but not intrusive. It was so nice to dine in a refined location where one could have a quiet conversation with table partners.

A disappointment. Salmon was almost inedible. Salmon! Hard to ruin! Almost impossible to get the bill after 2 hours at restaurant. Even after we pointed out that our parking meter was about to expire. Prices far too high for mediocre quality.

This is an old gem hidden in an old neighborhood. Authentic French cooking with an old French decor. Love all the dishes that include from appetizer to dessert. The fixed price lunch and dinner is worth trying. Happy to have found a neat French restaurant nearby and will revisit this quaint place again.

My husband and I love Le Vieux Logis. The food, service and ambiance are always good. This past Saturday was no exception. My husband had the fried oysters and the lobster fricassee and I had the duck terrine and the red snapper. All of the food was delicious! It was a warm and cozy meal on a cold night - perfect!

My husband and I dined here with my 89 year old father-in-law. It was very easily accessible for a walker or wheelchair. The ambiance was very sweet and cozy. The staff were very attentive, polite and caring. Very old school charm. The food was deliscious. I loved that there was parking available. I appreciated the coat check. I give it 4.5 stars...

Great hospitality from everyone from start to finish. Quiet and comfortable. You don't have to yell when having a conversation. Food was good along with a good wine selection. A little expensive. Seem to have a lot of regulars.
Will go again, enjoyed the experience.

It was my birthday and since my husband is a rather picky eater, I checked out Le Vieux Logis and noted they have the real Dover sole. That was a sure hit for my husband. The food is excellent and very authentically French.

Nice evening out with a few quite good dishes. We were upset that the staff told us that they could accommodate someone in a wheelchair. While it is possible to get in the restaurant, the bathroom is tiny, reached through an awkward narrow hallway and not accessible. If someone goes to the trouble to call and ask you about accessibility, please don’t mislead them.

The sole was massively over cooked.
We politely asked them to take it back. The waiter came back and told us that the chef was insisting that it was “perfect”! We said we weren’t going to eat it anyways. Then they took about 30 minutes to bring one dessert out and we’re rude about it. Never going back here.
