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.

Not a great experience for us. No one acknowledged us for a full 30 minutes and we were very patient but in the end my husband did talk to the hostess to get help. The waiter was very nice. We had a 7pm reservation and at that time they were already sold out of desserts and a main entree. The menu was extremely limited. My husbands NY Strip had more fat than steak, however my gnocchi was delicious. Hoping it was just a bad night for them.

A gem in Milford for a really nice evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience on the porch. Service was friendly and top notch. Oysters were fresh and the mignonette really let the flavor of the oyster come through. Our half-chicken entrees were prepared perfectly and served hot. Wine selection is excellent.

Lovely sitting on the porch on a September evening. Food was very good. Watermelon salad , burgers salmon and gnocchi all were hits. The brown butter cake with raspberry truffle ice cre topped off the meal. We had wine and beer. They have a full bar but I think a few signature cocktail suggestions on the menu would have gave it an extra edge. Something with Hendricks gin and st Germaine -hint ! So I can order it next time.

A little noisy with a few fire engines -can’t help that. Nice to watch the foot traffic and cars go by.

Overall a nice dinner out.

Marvelous cuisine with complex flavors. Enjoyed Grilled Peach and Prosciutto Salad, fresh, fresh oysters and brilliant Bouillabaisse with Truffle Fries. Oddly costly vin ordinaire. Next time, we’ll try just a cocktail.

We sat on the porch, dry as a bone, while it was pouring rain from Tropical Storm Henri 5 feet away from us! We had detoured into Milford from our original planned trip due to the storm, and three of the places we had wanted to visit that day were closed because of the storm. To stumble upon the Hotel Fauchere was such a treat. The atmosphere was friendly, warm and mellow, despite the madness of the weather. The staff were conscientious, and the food was great.

Fabulous.....a class act in every way! They have a new culinary team, and the food was delicious. Had mango chips, vegetarian risotto, and a delicious butter cake with home made ice cream. Sushi pizza always great. Our friends loved the mussels and the "impossible" burger. Porch has new awnings, so nice and shady, with views of the beautiful plantings. Highly recommend!

We love coming to the Fauchere. Had to go indoors as when we booked no porch
tables, altho' from the time we arrived until we left, there were several not filled.
Noise inside was loud. Actually, mostly one server with very loud voice who needed
to speak to everyone. Food outstanding, as usual.

After over a year of dining at home during the pandemic I have sticker shock when going out to eat. Realizing what restraunts charge and what a DIY meal cost can be an eye opener. Though I must say if the experience matches the food quality I do not mind paying a premium. Upon re-entering the 'going out to eat' world we are also noticing what establishments apreciated thier customers. This is the case at the Hotel Fauchier. After being a guest at the Hotel many years ago and subsequent visits to Bar Louis we went into the meal not knowing what to expect since it had been at least 5 years since our last visit. Let me tell you the food and the staff did not dissapoint. The quality of the meal from preperation to presentaion was spectacular. Not many places can elevate a burger and to such high levels, but this place manages to do so. Even better than the food was the service. After booking a brunch reservation for the porch on a Saturday morning we arrived and were seated. The neighboring table lit up a cigarette and started smoking. Not being from PA we thought that perhaps this was the norm. In NJ there is no smoking at outdoor dining. Taking a long shot to have our table switched to an indoor table I aproached the hostess. To my surprise not only did she immediatly apologize for the smoke and move us to a beautiful indoor table but informed the dining manager about the smoker. The dining manager, without hessitation, headed to the front porch to confront the guest who was smoking and informed them of the policy of no smoking in the outdoor areas. All this was done without pause, swiftly and professionally. I was blown away by thier effortless profesionalism that the staff exhibits. This can level can be very rare in the hospitality sector these days. I recomend this place for the entire experience. Also, if the watermelon salad is on the menu, get it! One of the best salads around. In conculsion you absolutly get what you pay for here and it is well worth it!

Sitting on the patio at the Fauchere is perfect especially if one is still apprehensive about dining indoors during this pandemic. The tables have ample space between them. The wait staff is courteous, not bothersome, efficient and friendly.

7 pm reservation and they already were out of the only soup on the menu, which was a chilled soup that would have been good on a July night. One of us then got the watermelon/arugula salad, which was delicious. Other got the oysters, which were ultimately sent back and comped because of multiple pieces of shell shrapnel in with the oysters. Chicken main was very good and risotto main was fine. Dessert was a chocolate mousse, which was very good. Server never once asked us if we wanted water and we ended up getting it three times from other servers. Server also seemed very content to leave us waiting for things while chatting with the diners at a table near us, who appeared to be frequent visitors as numerous staff visited with them throughout. We have had good experiences in the past at Bar Louis and a good, if somewhat stilted, dinner in the Delmonico Room as well.

Food was well-cooked and of excellent taste. However, we felt that the amount served of two of our entrees was not commensurate with the price. Atmosphere was excellent. Service was good but quite a bit slower than it usually is here. However, we enjoyed the experience as always and we do recommend this restaurant.

Lovely place. Great food and interesting selections. The sushi pizza and French fries with truffle oil and Parmesan is awesome. The service was just okay because the place was totally filled but in the past it was excellent so we won’t be critical. This is a great place to go for any occasion. Highly recommended.
