    The food was outstanding! That being said, it’s tapas, so don’t come very hungry or it will get expensive. Service and ambience were great.

    Felt a little duped during the experience, based on reviews and elevated menu on website, I thought we were in for a treat. Our server which was also hostess did a fantastic job delegating all her responsibilities but the food itself was subpar based on expectations. ‘Pomme frites’ were from a frozen bag, smaller portions to be expected from tapas, but the value got killed by the inflated prices. $22 popcorn chicken served in diner fair, hummus was decent but hardly shareable. Sliders and beet tartare were mostly left uneaten just due to taste. Ambience is strange just from table setup and no corridor into dining space of dense tables, it needs help on ergonomics. The giant red chair for photos should have been the giveaway but the red flag was the the only thing that really felt French was the items named on the menu. I can’t say I’d recommend after dropping $160+ for 2 people who don’t really drink and left wanting snacks for later.

    Our first time. Quite pricey. Very “proud” of their establishment. Great menu and drinks but way overpriced. Our service. Perfect. The food great. Do the popcorc chicken with indian dipping sauce and fried mushrooms. They were out of sorbet. We will give this another shot but not a top of my picks just due to the food and price. Oh and other than the name it is Not French. Think tapas. And arriving they are clear in that. We did enjoy it though

    Chez L'amour has something of a modern art deco theme with tapas styled dinner and a live jazz band. You should definitely read the menu before you go, and expect to order multiple plates - as you would with any tapas place. Between two, we ordered the coconut curry popcorn chicken, meat & taters, eggplant hummus, seasonal creme brulee and monica cake. All were delicious and appropriately filling. The staff is helpful and knowledgable, and the reno on the property looks really good. It would be an excellent venue and I plan to return for the chef tasting menu experience. The band was terrific - St. Aug has been in need of this type of music for a while. The open layout of the restaurant and unmuted/ dampened instruments leads to a very active participation in the bands playing and your meal - it commands your attention. However, it is still possible to have conversation at your table. I plan to return.

    We had a memorable experience with the Chef’s choice! Presentation and taste were absolutely amazing! We were discussing how helpful it would be to maybe have cards with what’s coming next as we just weren’t sure what we were eating a times… as delicious as it was! Loved the vibe though! Would recommend for a romantic dinner out or perhaps happy hour with the jazz music? We’ll definitely be back!

    We dined here for Easter Brunch. We each were able to pick 2 items (smaller portion sizes) off the brunch menu plus a small buffet to enjoy while we waited for our ordered items. The service was very good and the staff were friendly. It felt a little rushed, my first ordered item came out within 2 minutes of ordering, and the second shortly after so I wasn’t able to enjoy much of the buffet. Food was good, included mimosas were a nice touch as well. Just a bit rushed timing wise. Overall a nice holiday brunch though.

    What a wonderful dining experience! We had a salmon appetizer topped with black caviar that was delicious! For entrees we feasted on tender pork belly and scallops in a delectable sauce. Anything we ordered was beyond delicious! And of course, we couldn't leave without a crème brûlée and a Grand Marnier!

    The ambience is perfect and the food, although expensive, was delicious. The hostess/server came to the table too often interrupting our conversation frequently. Additionally, she couldn’t tell us much about the mocktails, which were not listed on the menu, and seemed a bit flustered that we asked questions. The live music was also wonderful. I will return once in awhile and bring guests.

    We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was great. The music was too loud, making ti impossible to talk during the set. Overall, too much spicy seasoning really limited what we could eat. The flatbread was good but the special was overpriced and very tiny. We will definitely go back but armed with more knowledge!

    We are vegan and have been here 3 times. We love it. We were surprised the cauliflower and mushrooms were not made the same way we were used to, fluffy fried. We didn’t care for it. The food was different this time. We asked if there was a new chef and they said no, so maybe they were just putting a new spin on the food.

    Between the music and the open back room, could barely hear ourselves think. $9 “bread service” was reheated stale dinner rolls that we certainly not made there. Mains were OK, but mostly boring. Service was great!
