During the pandemic we have been very careful about our dining decisions. This decision was one of our best. We celebrated a friend’s birthday. The food was delicious. The menu options were perfect. The attention to service was top shelf. We will return again soon.
This restaurant is fantastic. True elegant dining, reasonable portions and great service
Everything was wonderful - the food, the service, the ambiance. Thank you for a perfect night especially during COVID!
We were there for brunch/lunch on Sunday. Not sure if the pandemic has affected the overall experience, but it just wasn't what it used to be. The food was OK and the service was adequate, but the atmosphere was vapid. The servers seemed preoccupied and a bit overworked. The usually engaging wait staff was not engaged at all. Probably won't go back anytime soon.
The food was excellent, as always. My friend and I particularly enjoyed the chicken entree. The bird was cooked perfectly.
My family has eaten at Lemaire many times, and never had a bad experience. The servers are always attentive, the menu selections varied, and the food is delicious. Elegant atmosphere, and cozy ambience. Perfect restaurant for a special occasion.
Service by "Ty" and other staff was outstanding. One of the daily specials (baked Buttered Flounder) was very good. The duck, selected from the standard menu, was horrible. It had the texture of sausage.
Sophisticated food and service. I live 1 block away and the restaurant is my favorite.
It was one of the saltiest meals I’ve ever had! Salmon broccoli ferro(all of which I love) were nearly inedible. Couldn’t even enjoy the wine because we needed to drink so much water. A very disappointing dinner at a beautiful hotel. Our waiter was very professional but we will not ever return to Lemaire.
Our server Madeline Was amazing! She was very knowledgeable of Lemaire. She gave us wonderful recommendations from drinks to apps to dinner. She suggested I get the duck! It was delicious! She made our experience super memorable! We will be back!
The food was amazing and lives up to expectations. The prices were very suitable and more affordable than some other restaurants in its league. Our waiter was Michael and he was very charming and welcoming. The truffles were some of the best I’ve had! The online menu isn’t always limited, for there’s a few extra executive dishes that change often.
Disappointing service. Very limited menu.
The service and setting is outstanding and timely. Food flavors and presentation were all grade A with only one B thrown in. The oysters in the appetizer were crisp and tasty but the sauce accompanying them was almost tasteless. The chef has done better in prior visits.
Lemaires is still our favorite “night out” choice for food and ambiance.
Great service, awesome food, incredible ambiance.
You won’t regret eating here! 15/10 experience. These chefs are so incredibly talented and the service is impeccable
Beautiful atmosphere, loved the service, food, and ambiance. Loved it!
My girlfriend and I went for Valentine’s Day dinner celebration and had a great time. It was beautiful and very elegant. The food was really well prepared and the service was great.
Enjoyed the experience.
It was a beautiful place. We made a reservation on Valentine's Day. We were a little disappointed that there was a limited menu because of the afternoon time slot . If you want the main dinner menu- make sure the time is appropriate.
Food was very good and service was outstanding.
My husband and I brought our son for a nice lunch for Valentine’s day. It was as good as we remembered. The food was outstanding! It was nice not having a crowded dining room too.
What a lovely way to celebrate Valentine's Day!! Lunch at Lemaire was perfect! The oysters were the best I've ever had and hubby's BLT with Brie was amazing! The table spacing made it feel safe dining inside!
LeMaire is a great dining experience and the food is plated well. Due to COVID-19, we ordered room service and it arrived faster than expected. A wonderful meal on Valentine's eve.
Great food and great wait staff! We came from out of town and the waiter recommended a lot of local breweries for us to try.
Dinner was wonderful, service was wonderful, FOOD was impeccable and the OpenTable experience was unbelievably easy. As this followed pandemic regulations and restrictions; I was thoroughly impressed with this entire experience. Five stars!
Our server, Sean, was amazing! I felt so special on my birthday. The personal touches from the Happy Birthday message on my menu to the sampling of the special on the menu, were all just perfect.
Back after exactly a year! The waiter, Sean recognized us even with our masks on! He made my Bday delightful, as he did it the previous year! Food was excellent, as always! I consider ourselves regulars and we really missed this place !
visited LaMaire for the first time on my 76th birthday and the first anniversary of the death of my wife of48 years. Fantastic waitress, service and food. Have reservations to go back weekly. One of the memorable evenings of my old, globe-trotting life. Thank all of you !
Great service and nice environment, I would go again.
They hit it out of the park again for my son’s 12th birthday. Wonderful service, ask for Michael!
We had a great lunch at Lemaire! The BLT is great (and huge) was a lot more food than I was expecting for what is normally a simple lunch sandwich
Beautiful restaurant with old world splendor. Everything we have tried here is excellent, both at breakfast and dinner. The menu has a nice varied selection. Service is excellent.
Amazing service, amazing food. The ambiance of the Jefferson is a match made in heaven.
This restaurant was AMAZING!!! They really made my husband's birthday special and intimate. I appreciate all the staff there that took care of us!
Great tasting, excellent presentation;
Smooth service with excellent victuals at reasonable prices define the dining experience at Lemaire. The crème brûlée was superb and paired perfectly with the Tokay!
Elegant venue. Very good service. Food presentation was excellent. Little heavy handed with the salt on the scallops. A bit pricey, but they have to pay for that venue somehow.
Dining room seems back to its elegant self since reopened during covid pandemic. Fabulous food and service
We love the Jefferson, and the food at Lemaire is wonderful. We stopped through on a Monday night, and I think the food was a touch below our past experience but still very good.
Service was friendly and attentive.
