Perfect steak. The waiter was super enthusiastic, overall great experience
I appreciated the nice touches - writing happy birthday on the dessert plate and putting candle in the dessert as well!
First, cocktails at the bar are a must. We had two very generous Grey Goose 'tinis and they were perfect. We were seated at a four top for the two of us as it was a slow Sunday evening. Nice to have the extra room. Tuna tartare shared was just enough and super flavorful and fresh. Yum! A great bottle of Simi Landslide Cab went perfectly with the 24 hour lamb shanks we both had. Substitute fingerlings for the grits - no problem. Our servers were personable and professional, and, Annalie offered to store our leftovers in the kitchen's fridge as our room didn't have a fridge. No room for desert so we took the rest of our wine and our glasses back to the room to enjoy some of the cakes and chocolates leftover from Saturday's Tea. Extraordinary restaurant and hotel. We've never enjoyed ourselves more. We will be back. Often!
Wonderful Service & Great Food!
The food was incredible! The service was the best we have experienced. All 5 stars!
Our visit was wonderful. Sean our waiter was extremely knowledgeable with exceptional service. He also has an excellent personality. We felt like we were very special. The food was delicious and everybody ate everything on their plates. Nice little surprise when Sean brought out ice cream with a lit candle for our friend's birthday. Terrific experience!!!
We had a very good meal. The service was relaxed and very capable. We would recommend this restaurant!
Everything was fabulous! The food was soooo delicious, our waiter was very friendly and very attentive. Our daughter's 29th birthday was perfect, thanks to Lemaire!
My husband and I had one of the best overall dining experiences at Lemaire. It was our anniversary and everything was perfect from the service, the environment to every course of the meal. It's not often that we both have a meal without any flaws but we will return to this gem of a restaurant.
Entree was full of good options. Wish the dessert menu and sides had more variety.
Good food service and atmosphere.
I would recommend lemon scented sunchoke bisque - profound taste.
Steak and pork choop were great.
I loved kale caesar salad- light and delicious!
The best experience my wife and myself have had in a while. The perfect stress reliever. Will do it again no doubt. Thank you
Superior customer service by Chauncey The Manager. Excellent service by the waitstaff. The food was exceptional and even did an off the menu request with ease. Simply the best.
We’ve been coming to Lemaire for 10 years as a regular guest of the hotel Jefferson. It’s always creative, elegant and delicious. Unfortunately my husband dinner entree was inedible— a loin steak. I tried to tell him that this a tough cut of meat but he didn’t listen to me. Perhaps if our waiter had suggested another item on the menu my husband would have not ordered the loin steak. He ordered it “medium”. It came sliced but he couldn’t cut it and couldn’t chew it. At $34 it was very disappointing. He left the meat on the plate and ate the sides. The waiter didn’t question and my husband doesn’t like to complain (I would have). We will likely return to Lemaire but hopefully my husband has learned that just because something is on the menu and is pricey it doesn’t mean it’s good!
My husband and I ate a Lemaire to celebrate our birthdays. Michael, our waiter was fun, helpful, and had such a lovely personality. He helped make the dining experience warm and contemporary in a historically stiff hotel. Shawn assisted us in choosing a perfect wine for our meal. He gave us truly remarkable suggestions and we have now found a wine we want to buy a case of! Light and very complex. We can not wait to return.
Excellent, as always. Food and service were great.
All food and service top of the line. We had a delightful meal and evening.
Great food as always and wonderful service
Terrific place to dine. You feel like you are in New York City due to the opulence. 21 foot ceilings and Every room is different.
Enjoyed meeting my sister-in-law’s new friend, celebrating with a wonderful dinner.
Food and ambience were outstanding. Service seemed overly complicated with all of the people coming and going, especially at the start. We wound up buying a $9 bottle of water we didn't really want (tap water would have been fine) due to confusion about who brings what. Main waiter was very helpful and informative but a bit too chatty for our tastes.
Brilliant place. It's not too huge. It's small, elegant, cozy and good for a special occasion. They have some amazing specials for a special occasion.
Always amazing. Had not been in 12 years and was just as wonderful as I remembered it!
Beautiful restaurant. Great food. But our waiter Sean made the difference. Very professional. The Jefferson is a grand old Dame.
For about a decade, if in town, we celebrate our special occasions!
We love it! The food is amazing, so is service and they make the best martinis in town!
Did I mention the personalized menus?
Great ambiance, scallops were undercooked but all other dishes were spot on.
Delicious food & drink. Wonderful service. Ambiance was lovely...loved the fireplace with the alligator atop it. 😉
Lenaire is dependably excellent in all phases of the dining experience.
I absolutely love this restaurant! When my mother came to visit taking her to Lemaire was a must!
Elegant dining experience! We celebrated our wedding anniversary at LeMaire on February 19, 2019. We enjoyed a nice quiet dinner by a window. My wife had the Sable (like Codfish - from Alaska). I had the Rockfish. Both were excellent.
Absolutely amazing food, presentation, and ambience!
We stayed at the Jefferson over the holiday weekend and ate at Lemaire one of the nights. The service was great and the appetizers and entrees were very good. It was a very enjoyable experience
Our experience was amazing! Firstly the service was excellent, our waiter was friendly, attentive, and well versed in the offerings. The meal was delicious, the chicken fried oysters appetizer is a must.
Love love this restaurant.
We had not been in a while but were extremely happy with everything. Michael did a great job of making recommendations and we thoroughly enjoyed it all.
Overall awesome first experience. Great customer service and beautfil ambience.
Valentines dinner here was amazing! Everything from the beef cheek app to the caramel apple cheesecake tasted so delicious. This place definitely exceeded my expectations!
Lemaire was a wonderful spot to celebrate Valentines Day! We were treated to exceptional service from Michael and wonderful food from the chef. Everything was prepared well and food was also presented beautifully. It’s hard to get steak that’s actually cooked medium rare and mussels that are boiled long enough without falling off the shell but we got both! Didn’t save room for dessert but they sounded delicious and we will be back again soon just for the dessert!
Excellent food and service was impeccable. Highly recommend.
The atmosphere, food, and drinks were second only to the service provided by Micheal. He was an excellent server and even if the food wasn’t amazing I would still go back because of his service. The lamb was delicious!!!
