Went there with my friend for her birthday. We didn't order desserts but the server gave my friend a surprise birthday dessert. That was a very nice touch and this, on top of great food and top notch service. All the servers were attentive and warm. Only complain I have is the lack of parking spaces. Otherwise, it was a great night out for us. Thank you!

Damas has an excellent reputation that is absolutely deserved. The tasting menu is beyond anything you’ve ever imagined. The Fattuch salad has 27 ingredients that is the best I have ever had. Nothing comes close, every dish is presented and explained in detail. Every morsel lights up your taste buds and brings pure satisfaction to your pallet. I would rate this restaurant an eleven out of ten. Kudos to the chefs, waiters and staff which makes your experience one of pure culinary bliss.

Decadently delicious! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Langdon Hall in the main dining room. We started with their freshly baked sourdough bread and chive and gruyere bread. Next, we were presented with a delicious amuse bouche of their house-made ricotta and mini lettuce leaves, topped with the petals of a citrus plant and served on a piece of natural slate. We both chose the Beets and Berries appetizer and we both thought it was outstanding! I chose the sable fish while my husband chose the chicken. Again, we were both impressed with the delicious, mouth-watering taste of our entrées. We had no room left to sample the dessert choices with our coffee and blueberry tea but our server brought us each a mini-muffin and a jellied apricot bite! Just a perfect meal! Compliments to the creative chef!!

Visited this restaurant on Nov 19, 2021 since it is very close to my hotel at Auberge St. Antoine. Tried their tasting menu and dishes were reflected their fine dining caliber well. Regretted not asking the server's name( a curvy beautiful young lady), she is truly shining on both service and manner. I don't think she was my server, she wasn't the one who took my order, but she served me almost from beginning to end, kept filling up my hot water due to my upset stomach that day, made my whole night at Laurie Raphael very enjoyable! Thank you, Miss
