Contemporary American
The Hotel Fauchere features three dining venues. Our elegantly-appointed Delmonico Room with its vintage Hudson River School paintings, piano and light-filled sunroom, our Bar Louis, with cozy booths, a contemporary vibe and the famous gigantic photograph of Andy Warhol and John Lennon behind the bar and our heated front porch with awnings and plexiglass wind breaks. Please note venue preference, if you have one, and we will accommodate as we are able (not all venues are open at all times). The restaurant pays homage to our founder, Louis Fauchere, who began working as a master chef at Delmonico's in New York City in 1848. He opened the Fauchere in 1852 and it was run by his descendants for 124 years. In addition to mask-wearing, social distancing and other sanitation measures, the HVAC systems in our dining rooms have been retooled to include ionizers and UV light filtration to provide further protection against air-borne pathogens. We look forward to welcoming you.

Mediocre service for a Relais Chateau property. Sat on porch for dinner with friends. Oil burning candle was placed on table not lit but also empty of oil.
Our dinner service felt rushed and the overhead heaters turned off before we finished. Beware be sure to ask price of wine by the glass as it’s not indicated on wine list.

Host seemed annoyed when we first arrived, waited almost 45 minutes before we got our app and before our dinner, got my girlfriends order wrong and over cooked both of our burgers only refilled our waters once, when we were getting the check. Maybe it was just an off night, nice place awesome history great town but little disappointed not sure if we’ll be back was hoping for more out of my gf’s birthday dinner.

This place USED to be very good.
We used to love it and for almost ten years it was number one choice for us and for a couple of dozens of our friends and family members. We decided to book it for my friends 50th birthday.
The guy in charge of our small party was INCREDIBLY RUDE!
WE GOT YELLED AT for taking pictures next to the piano !!!
One person in our group has stage four cancer, the other one is on immune suppressants, so we had to be extra careful in order to protect them. We DID follow all of the rules.
We were the only group in the room.
My friend is an accomplished piano player and she asked if she can play a small piece of classical music, just a couple of minutes. She wanted to send a small video to her parents who couldn’t attend because of the pandemic. She was not allowed.
It was OK with us. The guy in charge might have been a mortal enemy of Frederick Chopin and the restaurant is not a Carnegie Hall but when we tried to take a couple of pictures of her STANDING NEXT to the piano, we got yelled at.
The guy came to us screaming: “ I told you not to touch it!”
We were in complete shock.
I do not know what is happening to this place.
Service keeps getting worse. We had to wait forever for our food. The whole atmosphere is different. Not a pleasant experience!

Another excellent meal at the Delmonico room! Our waiter Christopher enhances the experience with his courteous service and articulation of the delicious items on the menu. We left well fed with leftovers packaged to-go. The menu is always new and when you miss something, you will find a satisfying replacement that will leave you craving for more! Get here for a special occasion, the room is beautiful, the parking is abundant and the structure is grand. A visit to the bar down stairs is always in order as well, havent tried their menu yet, but the vibe is awesome!

Our server was delightful, well informed and helpful. We we're disappointed with some, not all of the dishes. The lobster being the worst disappointment, a teeny tiny (canned?) tail in heavy flavorless sauce with dull puff pastry triangles was a flop compared to the beautifully prepared and delicious bronzino. We dined there several years ago and enjoyed a very high level cuisine. For now, we'll stick with Bar Louis.

We have eaten at Hotel Fauchere and Bar Louie many times before and it was excellent. Dining was previously top notch and they have won many awards. Something has changed, not sure if there are new owners but it was awful. Maybe they are trying to be trendy but the menu was way too rustic, foie gras was not up to par, venison and pheasant was not cooked and cold. Maitre d seated us but was not at the desk to thank us for dining when we completed dinner. Please go back to the old Delmonico Room and Bar Louie--there was nothing that needed to be changed-it was previously perfect.

Linda, I am sorry you were disappointed with your dinner. It was a set menu that evening and we had many compliments on both the venison and pheasant, so I'm not sure what happened with yours. You note that it was "not cooked and cold"; if you had brought it to our attention we could have made sure the problem was remedied. It is always possible a plate that isn't right isn't caught before it leaves the kitchen. I hope you'll ask for me on your next visit so we can make it right. Sean Strub

We had a lovely Christmas Eve meal . The service was exceptional, and the food quite excellent. Even with a mostly full dining room, it was quiet enough to carry on a conversation. With background piano music, it really made the evening complete. We will definitely do this again for Christmas Eve.

Fantastic dinner with many luxury options. we killed just about everything on the appetizer menu and it was all good! lovely to see a quail egg on the wagyu tartare. also enjoyed the oysters fauchere, trout rillettes and blue crab. drinks were served and were superb with a good selection of scotches/bourbons and whiskeys. glad to order a hendricks and tonic and having hendricks available. our group ordered a lamb shank special, delmonico steak and lobster wenberg and not an issue to be found. all was fresh, well presented and delicious with portions to take home. the crispy potatoes are worth mentioning as they were fantastic. a higher price point then much of the area although fantastic. rounding out the weekend included a 2 night stay with a patio room and a large tub. plenty of parking out back and cant wait to go back!

My wife an I recently went there and waited over an hour for our appetizers to arrive. There were only three other occupied tables when we were seated. After that wait, my wife's appetizer arrived with an ingredient on it she specifically asked to be served without. She has a sensitivity. The appetizer was taken away and all that they did was pick off the item my wife has a sensitivity to. Good thing it was not an allergy to the ingredient, because the returned item would certainly have the residue on it. After that, we asked for our check and to have the entrees cancelled. Very disappointing. It would seem that the bar downstairs gets preferential service over the fine dining room.

!st to be seated at 6:15. Sommelier/head waiter? chatted briefly. 30 minutes later we had to grab another wait staff to order the wine. First bottle arrived. 30 minutes later they took our order. 30 minutes later the first course arrived along with the bread. 30 minutes later the main course arrived. 30 minutes later we ordered dessert. 30 minutes later the dessert arrived, but the after dinner drink did not. 30 minutes later we asked for the bill. Very disorganized.
Food was delicious! Striped bass tartare, blue crab salad, serrano ham and green bean appetizers; duck breast with light blueberry compote, whole trout, scallops, and lobster newberg were all very good(though the lobster dish only had 3 little lobster pieces on a bed of pasta). Piano player was terrific. Wine list is eclectic but works--very reasonable prices except for a few heavy hitters.

My husband and I went for our anniversary dinner here. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted warmly. There was a gentleman playing the piano and the room was very inviting. Our server Joseph was phenomenal!! He was extremely attentive yet gave us space/privacy. The cuisine was SUPERB...there was care put into everything, starting with the cocktails all the way to dessert. I had the lamb and my husband had the bay scallops - both were tender and full of flavor. We were thoroughly impressed with everything and will definitely be dining here again in the future.

We had a delightful evening out without kids in a high-end restaurant. The food and service was outstanding. The wait staff were friendly and professional and the food delightful; of special note was the Wagu tartar appetizer. As well, a live pianist made a late night dinner personal and romantic. We would definitely return.
